Cinnamon Rolls

DoughCinnamon bun

•1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)

•1 cup warm milk

•½ cup granulate sugar

•½ cup margarine or softened butter

•1 teaspoon salt

•2 eggs

•4 cups all purpose flour


•1 cup packed brown sugar

•3 tablespoon cinnamon

•1/3 cup margarine, softened

Cream Cheese Icing

•6 tablespoon margarine or butter

•1 ½ cups powdered sugar

•¼ cup (55 g) cream cheese

•½ teaspoon vanilla

•1/8 teaspoon salt

For the rolls, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl. Add sugar, butter, salt, eggs, and flour to the bowl of a mixer and mix well. Pour the milk/yeast mixture in the bowl and using the dough hook, mix well until well incorporated.

Place dough into an oiled bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface, until it is approx. 16 inches long by 12 inches wide (16in L x 12in W). It should be approx. ¼ inch thick.

Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan

To make filling, combine the butter or margarine, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Spread the mixture evenly over the surface of the dough. Alternatively you can spread the butter first on the dough and then the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Working carefully, from the long edge, roll the dough down to the bottom edge. The roll should be about 18 inches in length. Cut the roll into 1 ½ inch slices. You might find it easier if you use a piece of floss vs a knife.

Place the cut rolls in the prepared pan. Cover them with a damp towel. Let them rise again for another 30 minutes until they double in size.

Bake for 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cooking time can vary greatly

While the rolls are baking make the icing by mixing all ingredients and beat well with an electric mixer until fluffy.

When the rolls are done, spread generously with icing.
