Easy Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Cinnamon Rolls are the ultimate autumnal treat. As the trees starts to change, and the weather tarts to turn I always find myself returning to these comforting and delicious little buns. I feel like they are the epitome of comfort food. These make around 12-16 rolls and are the easiest ones I have found. Make sure to add a little extra to yours, maybe some pecans or raisins for that extra ompf.

So here they are, my easy cinnamon roll recipe.

What you will need for these easy rolls-

For the rolls

  • 1 packet of 7g dried active baking yeast
  • 3.5 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 225ml  warm water 
  • 400g plain flour
  • 1 eggs
  • 2.5 tablespoons vegetable oil

For the filling

  • 150g brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 60g of butter

How to make the easy cinnamon rolls-

  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and  sugar in warm water.
  2. Stir in 200g of the flour and beat this until it becomes elasticised and sticky.
  3. Beat in eggs and oil and then the remaining flour, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. When the dough has pulled together, put it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and not tacky or wet anymore. When it becomes a smooth mixture it is ready, this took me about 10 minutes
  5. Put some oil in a bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. I put my oven on for about 5 mins to get a little warm and then placed my bowl in there, as I don’t have a warm place…
  6. Then mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  7. When the dough is risen tip it out onto a floured surface and roll into a rectangle, approximately 20×30 cm. Spread over the softened butter and then sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon mix. Roll the rectangle up on the long side so you make a log. Then cut this log into equal pieces.
  8. Then place these pinwheels into  a lightly greased 23×33 cm (9×13 in) baking tin.
  9. Cover the rolls let it rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
  10. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 190 degrees.
  11. Bake in preheated oven for 20-30 minutes, until golden.
