470g Plain Flour

7g Fast Action Dried Yeast

56g Caster Sugar

1tsp Salt

2 Eggs

60g Unsalted Butter (Melted)

120ml Milk

120ml Warm Water

2tsp Espresso Powder

1tsp Vanilla Extract

Begin by adding the espresso powder to the warm water and stir well. Next, add the milk, melted butter, eggs and vanilla extract to the espresso mixture and whisk together. In a bowl or stand mixer add the flour, yeast, salt and sugar and mix together. Add the wet espresso mixture and stir until combined. Once a dough has formed, knead for 8-10minutes (this can be done using a dough hook attachment or by hand). Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover with cling film to rise for 2 hours.

100g Light Brown Sugar

60ml Double Cream (Warm)

2tsp Espresso Powder

Once the dough has risen, roll the dough out into a large rectangle. Evenly spread the the melted butter, sugar, chocolate and cinnamon on top of the dough before rolling the dough up and sealing together. Remove the ends and begin to divide the rolled up dough evenly. Place the cinnamon rolls in a baking dish and leave to rise for 30 minutes. Once risen, mix the warm cream and espresso powder together and brush over the cinnamon rolls before baking at 175 degrees C for 20-25 minutes. Leave to cool.


250g Mascarpone

75ml Baileys

60g Icing Sugar

580ml Whipping Cream

Cocoa Powder

Whip the mascarpone, baileys and icing sugar together. Once smooth and homogeneous, add the whipping cream and whip until stiff peaks form. Pipe the mixture on top of the cooled cinnamon rolls and top with cocoa powder and melted milk chocolate.

    Man, that's delicious. It took some time and you need to have some practice to spread the dough more thin possible and to roll it but if i made it, you can also make it. Thank you for this amazing instructable.

    These are absolutely *gorgeous*!! I've tried using my Kitchenaid twice to knead dough, but it was a disaster. I don't know what properly kneaded dough is supposed to "feel" like - as many dough recipes say that depending on the humidity in your home, your recipe may, or may not, need more water, or flour. Eeks. I could never get it right - either it never climbed my hook and left the side of the bowl, or.it was just a big blob that banged around the bowl, never getting stretchy/kneaded. I've successfully made a Raisin Bread with a yeast dough using my Bread Machine to knead it, and then proceeding with the recipe, so I am going to try that with this one, too. :) I'm very excited - you did such a spectacular job on this! Your photos are beautiful/mouthwatering, and the instructions with your accompanying photos are very easy to understand. It takes a lot of time and effort to do the recipe, write it up, & then upload all the pics -so, thank you for taking the time to do all this for us! I'm going to peek at your website as well. I haven't heard of it before, but I'm betting this won't be the last recipe of yours I try! :) Cheers!

    Not having a gram scale I can't try your recipe. I have been looking for a recipe for cinnamon rolls that I experienced sixty five years ago for most of my adult life and yours looked worth a try. Metrics are fine but weight recipes are just weird unless you prepare food by the ton. Oh well.

    Too funny. If you were really interested, Google is your best friend for this. It would take you 2 minutes to convert everything into cups, tablespoons, and teaspoons.

    Weight measurements are the most precise for a recipe - the person writing this did a fantastic job making sure exact proportions are achieved.

    A kitchen scale costs around $10 on Amazon.

    Sorry guys, I'll update with US cup measurements when I get the chance. I tend to use grams as they're more accurate but I understand not everyone has a scale.

    Sure yiu can, it just tskes a tiny bit if effort. Buy a cheap electronic kitchen scale, they all do both English and metric systems. Or look up a cinverter on the Internet or download a free app to your phone. It might take all of 10 minutes to do the conversions.

    Go look it up. There are conversions for everything. My moyher always said Can't" means "You don't want." Oh well....

    Baileys Irish Creme I will guess.

    Yes it's Baileys Irish Cream :) You can substitute it for something else if you like.

    What is "double cream"? I know what whipping cream is, but I don't know what double cream is. Otherwise, this recipe looks really good!

    "Double Cream" is British for cream with about 48% butter fat. Closest in North America is "Heavy Cream" or "Whipping Cream".
