I have grown up with this recipe and I plan on my daughter doing the same. My mom was a home economics teacher and this is the recipe that she would have all her students make, because it’s a super easy way to make delicious homemade cinnamon rolls. I have used this 60 minute yeast bread recipe for cinnamon rolls and pizzas. Sometimes I like to make the full batch and split in half and make a pizza for dinner and have a few cinnamon rolls for dessert, but trust me you’ll want the whole batch of cinnamon rolls . Depending on the size you make this recipe will make 8-12 normal size cinnamon rolls.
It’s pouring here today so I felt like baking. As I was making these the smell of cinnamon reminded me of holiday time, even though it’s June, I love things that remind me of holiday time.
60 Minute Yeast Bread Cinnamon Rolls
|Prep time||15 minutes|
|Cook time||1 hour|
|Total time||1 hour, 15 minutes|
|Meal type||Bread, Breakfast, Dessert|
|Misc||Child Friendly, Pre-preparable|
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 packet yeast
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar (use according, if you feel this is too much, slightly cut back)
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons butter (softened or melted)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon butter (melted)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- water (a few drops at a time)
|Combine milk, water and butter in small saucepan. Heat over low heat until liquids are about 125 degrees F, hot to touch, but not boiling. Butter does not have to be melted.|
|Place 2 cups of flour, sugar, salt and yeast in bowl. Mix and then add warm liquids to flour mixture. Knead in remaining flour, 1 cup at a time. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic. Or use a KitchenAid mixer with dough hook.|
|Place in well greased bowl, and roll until top is greased. Let rest covered in warm place until it doubles in size. I place it in the oven at 170 degrees F, with a kitchen towel over the top for 20-30 minutes. Make sure towel is only touching bowl.|
|Cinnamon Roll Filling|
|Roll out dough to form a 14" x 12" rectangle. Spread 3 tablespoons butter onto dough. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon. You could add nuts of chocolate chips at this point also if desired.|
|Roll up jelly-roll style, starting from long side. Seal seam. Slice with thread into 8-12 pieces. Place in greased 13"x9"x2" baking pan. Cover with towel again and let rise until doubled in warm place for another 20-30 minutes.|
|Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and then remove from pan. Frost warm rolls with powdered sugar icing, best served warm.|
|Mix powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and a few drops of water. Keep adding a few drops of water at a time until you have reached desired consistency.|
Awesome! So Good!
These are amazing! What I would do for this baked fresh every morning...
