I should be baking more of these yummy goodies. These rolls taste so good and sweet enough, you might decide to skip the glaze.

I personally like these rolls with nothing extra but You can try cream cheese frosting, caramel sauce, or as I mentioned earlier a simple glaze. It is better to have these rolls as is before deciding on a topping.

I have used a wide 9×9 inch pan for baking these rolls, nonstick pans are the best in case you are out of parchment paper or aluminum foil.

      Hi Charissa, I take the dough out of the fridge, lightly knead it and start working with it immediately … After spreading the filling and cutting the rolls, I let it rest covered for twenty to thirty minutes to increase in size, and then bake it. Hope this helped 🙂

      I guess you can, but you have to take it out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature before baking. Let me know how it cam out 🙂

      If you didn’t over bake them, they stay soft and all you have to do if want to have them warm, is just pop one in microwave for 10 seconds.

    Hi muna
    This is an amazing recipe.Just a question if we put lemon juice the milk will get curdled so do we use the curdled milk?

    • munatycooking

      Hi Vidya, adding lemon juice or vinegar to milk makes it a substitute for buttermilk. Buttermilk makes the dough or batter light and fluffy 🙂

    I made these rolls twice and they were perfect! My family loved them. I do have a question though….What other recipes could we use this dough recipe for? Like donuts (baked) probably? any other recipes come to your mind?

      Hi Tanu, thanks for the feedback I’, glad your family loved these rolls. You can make them into dinner rolls and monkey bread too 🙂

    Hi this looks amazing..Havent tried cinnamon rolls yet.Will try this one i guess.Had a couple of doubts☺

    1.If i plan to prep the dough night before, should i refrigerate it after its rising time?I mean after 1 hr n 20 mins??
    2.Can i use white sugar instead of brownsugar in the filling?
    3.Can i substitute the sweet filling with something spicy?Like the filling in garlic rolls?

    Thanks in advance ?

    • munatycooking

      12/08/2016 at 10:15 pm

      Hi Farzana, it’s nice of you to stop by 🙂
      1- If you want to prepare the dough and keep it in the fridge to use the next day, no need to wait for the dough to rise. Knead it, place it in a bowl, cover it and keep it in the fridge.
      2- Yes, you can use white sugar.
      3- You can fill it with anything you like 🙂
      Please keep in mind that if you refrigerate the dough you have to take it out and let come to room temp, this way it will easier for the dough to rise in the second rise.
      All the best.

        Hi Cara! Yes, you need to roll the dough, fill it and shape it, then wait for the rising of the dough (it might take longer to rise since it is a cold dough.) and finally bake it 🙂

    I made these with cake flour.Just used 1/2 cup milk instead of 3/4 cup.The rest was as stated in the recipe.Turned out just as good!!! easy to make and so delicious!!!!!

    I added the yeast to the milk lemon mixture but it didn’t froth even after 10 minutes. Should I continue with it or use a fresh packet of yeast?

    • munatycooking

      10/09/2017 at 7:10 am

      Hi Tasha, try a little amount of yeast with warm water and see if it froth. If it doesn’t it means the yeast is bad if it did then continue with the recipe, sometimes the acid in the lemon or vinegar slows down the frothing process.

    Absolutely delicious! Great recipe. I made the dough last night and just baked them now. I used a whole packet (10g) of instant yeast and just mixed it in with the flour and it worked perfectly.
    Thank you.?

    They came out perfectly! a question in regards to storage, How would you store them and for how long? Thanks for a wonderful recipe. Its a keeper!

    • munatycooking

      09/11/2017 at 10:48 am

      Thank you Priya! You can store the rolls in an airtight container in room temp for three days. If the weather is too hot where you are, try to store in cool place.

    I tried this recipe this morning in a desperate attempt not to have to leave the house. The outside wind chill is -20 degrees. I had no eggs and a splash of milk left. This recipe yielded the most tender rolls I have ever eaten (both home made and restaurant). I strayed from the recipe because I also had no brown sugar left (I apparently lack planning skills this week). I used white sugar instead. Brown sugar is necessary. I made up for the lack of flavor from the brown sugar by adding a little orange extract to the icing. They turned out great and I will absolutely use the recipe again. The next time, however, it will be as written. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I am fifteen and have never made cinnamon rolls before. I am a pretty good cook, but when it comes to baking I am still learning a lot of techniques. These rolls were so easy to make and were the epitome of everything a cinnamon roll should be! I am gonna take the recipe and swap the cinnamon brown sugar filling out for strawberry jam and a lemon glaze!

      Wow! Not many teenagers like to cook these days, I’m happy that you’re going to try my recipe, I think the filling of strawberry is going to be amazing 🙂

    Just made these and was very unsure I would do a good job. My 3 year old daughter just got cleared to eat wheat products after being allergic for while. She is highly allergic to eggs so I was so happy to land on this recipe. We both love them. Thank you so much. Would love to post a photo but can’t seem to figure that out.

    I just made these as I had no eggs, they are on the final rise, I tasted the dough so good, so I’m sure once baked, these might become my go-to cinnamon buns

    Assalamu’alaykum warrahmatullahi wabarakatuh dear Muna,

    Jazakillahu khayran for always willing to share your delish recipes!may it will be your jaariyah.
    I was wondering if you ever tried this recipe with gluten free flour?

    • munatycooking

      14/05/2018 at 9:00 pm

      Wa Alaikum Assalam sister. I never used gluten free flour for this recipe but I guess it won’t be as moist and maybe more liquid will be needed!

    • munatycooking

      Hi Jenn, yes you can use buttermilk instead. The amount is the same as the milk mentioned in the recipe.

    These look really delicious! I’m going to try to make these today, I don’t actually have any baking soda , if I left this out , do you think it will make a difference?

    Made these for Christmas. Absolutely delicious, and quite possibly the lightest cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had.

    Thank you so much for this recipe, i am allergic to eggs and always looking for recipes I can share with my family. I have just set the dough to prove! I am in the UK and wanted to check the amount of flour? I used 288 grams but only needed less than half the milk and yeast mix to bring the dough together into a sticky mix, which became soft and silky after kneading. Or maybe I should check the amount of milk – I used 180mls or three quarters of a pint. Any help would be appreciated for when I make these again!

    • munatycooking

      19/09/2018 at 3:32 pm

      Hey Mary, Thanks for your comment. I always measure using cups so it will be difficult for me to tell if you did anything wrong. The dough initially is sticky but after kneading for a few minutes becomes really smooth. I will soon add a printable (under the printable tab) that shows the conversions from cup to grams for dry ingredients.

    Hi! For the filling, I didn’t have enough to spread for the size of the rolled dough you indicated. Also the filling was too “wet” after I mixed the butter with the cinnamon & sugar, making it very sticky & difficult to spread. My rolls came out tasting great, but I had to discard a lot of the edges that didn’t get the filling. I noticed no one else has mentioned this, so I must have done something wrong?

    • munatycooking

      21/11/2018 at 5:44 am

      Hi Kavita, Thanks for your comment. Usually, the filling is enough to spread on the rolled out dough, did you use a measuring spoon?
      The filling can be wet if the butter was melted, make sure the butter is just soft and it will be easy to spread and roll. Hope this helped.

    i have some confusion if i follow instruction no 6 than i have to wait for 1.5 hour to rise dough than i can roll dough can u explain instruction no 7 in detail

    • munatycooking

      #7 is for when you want to make this dough ahead of time, so you can knead the dough and refrigerate it. The dough will slowly rise while in the fridge and you can make the rolls in the morning or after a few hours.
