History of cinnamon rolls

Did you know that cinnamon rolls originated from Sweden? There’s also a National Cinnamon Bun day! I can believe it. Anything that brings that much joy to people should have its own day. Cinnamon rolls are  a family  thing for us!! We love homemade cinnamon rolls with creamy frosting served with a side of cheese. I’m going to give you guys my easy must-have cinnamon roll recipe so you to can enjoy with your family!

Is the yeast hard to manage in this cinnamon roll recipe?

I know that yeast can be very intimidating but don’t be afraid. Once you place the yeast in the water it pretty much does all of the work for you. Now all you have to do is sit still and let the yeast rise in a slightly warm area.

How long do you have to wait for cinnamon roll yeast to rise?

You don’t have to let the yeast sit overnight. You can place the dough in a warm area for about an hour. The dough will then double in size. Let’s go over the easy steps of making cinnamon rolls at home so you can be on your way to cinnamon roll heaven!!

Steps to making cinnamon rolls

Making the yeast

First thing you need to do is grab a bowl add in the yeast with milk and let that sit to the side. Now  in a bowl mix sugar and  butter. Once you have that mixed up add in your eggs and mix. Next, add in your flour and salt. On a low setting, add in the yeast mixture you made earlier. Once it becomes dough, place it in a bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let sit for about an hour. Your dough should double in size.

Rolling your dough

Once the dough has risen, remove from the bowl and roll flat with a rolling pin. Once you have flattened the dough, we are ready to make the filling.

Making the filling for cinnamon rolls

In a bowl add in brown sugar with oil and cinnamon. Mix together and spread on your flattened dough. Roll the dough long ways into a cylinder.

Baking the dough

Once you have rolled the dough slice the dough in 1 inch slices and place on a buttered pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Let the dough sit for about 20 minutes before placing in the oven. Let bake for 25-30 or until brown.
