How to make cinnamon rolls.

To make cinnamon rolls you will need the following ingredients: 

  1. Two/thirds cup of warm water.                     6. 1 teaspoon of salt. 
  1. 1 Tablespoon of yeast.                                    7. Two and a half cups of flour. 
  1. One-fourth cup of sugar. 
  1. One-fourth cup of butter. 
  1. 1 egg. 

For the filling you will need:                                       For the frosting you will need: 

  1. One tablespoon of melted butter.                                1. Two tablespoons of softened butter. 
  1. Two teaspoons of cinnamon.                                        2. One cup of powdered sugar. 
  1. Two tablespoons of brown sugar.                                 3. Two tablespoons of milk. 
  1. One tablespoon of sugar.                                               4. ½ a teaspoon of vanilla extract. 


First, you will need to turn the oven onto its lowest heat.  Then, in a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in two-thirds of a cup of warm water along with one teaspoon of sugar, then set this aside. 

Next, in a large mixing bowl, add one-half of a cup of sugar, and one-fourth of a cup of soft or melted butter, and add the one egg, and one teaspoon of salt. Then cream these ingredients together with a strong spoon. 

After this, add the yeast mixture to the egg mixture, then mix these two together. Following this, add one and a half cups of four to the mixture. Beat the mixture with a wooden spoon until a smooth sponge is formed. 

After the mixture has been beaten well, gradually add one more cup of flour. Only add enough flour to make a soft dough, so don’t add to much flour. 

After this, turn the dough out onto a floured surface.  Then knead the dough gently for around three minutes, you may need to add around one-fourth of a cup of flour to the dough while kneading it. After this, wash the large mixing bowl and lightly grease the whole bowl. 

Once the dough has finished being kneaded, turn off the oven, and put the dough in the greased bowl, and grease the top of the dough. Then, cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a towel. 

Rising the dough

Let the dough rise in the warm oven until it has doubled in size, this should take around an hour. While the bread is rising, make the filling. To make the filling, mix the two teaspoons of cinnamon, and the two tablespoons of brown sugar, and the tablespoon of sugar in a small or medium sized bowl. 

After the bread has successfully raised, punch it down and roll it out to a one-fourth inch thick rectangle, which should be about twelve inches long by ten inches wide. From here, you can start warming the oven up to its lowest temperature again. 

After this, microwave the one-fourth of a cup of butter for about fifteen seconds. Make sure to cover the butter with a paper towel. Then, spread the butter all over the dough, but not on one-fourth of an inch on one of the long sides of the rectangle. 

Then, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar filling over the melted butter on the dough. From here, roll up the dough, starting from the opposite side of the unbuttered edge of the dough, that way when you are almost done rolling the dough, you can pinch the unbuttered edge of the dough to the rest of the dough in order to seal it into a roll. 


Then divide the roll into nine pieces using a piece of thread, or floss. Place the rolls onto the pan, it’s okay if they are touching. After this, let the cinnamon rolls rise in the oven until they have doubled in size again. Again, this will take around an hour. Once they are done, start preheating the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once the oven is ready, put the cinnamon rolls into the oven, and cook them from 20-30 minutes, or until you feel they are done. The cinnamon rolls should be crisp on the outside, and they should have expanded some more while they were cooking. 

The Finish

While the rolls are in the oven, it will be time to make the frosting. Grab a bowl to mix the frosting in. Microwave the butter for around fifteen seconds to soften it. Then add the butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla extract into the bowl. Mix the ingredients with a Wisk, until the frosting is smooth.  

After this, take the cinnamon rolls out of the oven, and coat them with the frosting. Try to spread the frosting evenly across the rolls. After this take a knife to separate the cinnamon rolls and eat them.  One great website to find recipes is
