Sarah- I’m back with a brand new recipe. It’s my Cinnamon Roll recipe. It’s not a quick recipe but it’s worth every minute every second that you spend on the recipe. This is the world’s best Cinnamon Rolls. These are the most softest, featherlight, airy and fluffy cinnamon rolls ever. They will blow your mind. How fluffy these are. I can’t say enough good things about these cinnamon rolls, except if you make them once you will be tempted to make them again and again. My daughter loves them, I give her for breakfast. However, she eats them for lunch, snack, and dinner too; so these won’t last more than 2 days. I wouldn’t recommend anybody who wants to lose weight consume these rolls. I don’t think they can help you achieve your weight loss goals. Nevertheless, this will make you scream “OH MY GODDDDD!!!”

Cinnamon Rolls


Before I tell you about the recipe, let’s go over the ingredients to make the world’s best cinnamon rolls.

  • Milk: You need whole milk, not 2%, 1%, or skim milk. There should be no diet ingredients in this recipe.
  • Butter: We would need butter for this recipe. We need melted butter for the dough. Plus we need soften butter at room temperature for the filling that it’s melted.
  • Flour: Just traditional all-purpose flour.  (I have not tested this recipe with other types of flour.)
  • Sugars: We will use granulated (white) sugar in both the dough and filling, as well as some brown sugar in the filling. Lastly, we need powder sugar for the glaze.
  • Salt: Just a touch, to enhance the flavor of your dough.
  • Egg: One egg, for the dough and this will help you bring an unique taste to your dough.
  • Vanilla Extract: If you know my baking recipes, you will know how much I love to include vanilla extract in every baking dessert.
  • Cinnamon powder: Because it’s cinnamon rolls recipe and because why not???
  • Yeast: I always used an active dry yeast packet, that’s roughly 2 1/2 tsp of yeast that you’d be using if you have the dry yeast jar. Lastly, make sure it’s not expired.Cinnamon Rolls


  1. Butter- Make sure when you melt the butter for the you are doing it in 15 seconds intervals. When you come to that filling step make sure your butter is at room temperature and spread it evenly.
  2. Dough- Make sure you put the dough in warm spot. I usually put it inside of my oven. Even when the recipe calls for raising again step, then too I stick it in oven. It comes out perfectly raised.
  3. Glaze- add the glaze when the rolls are still warm but not hot. If the rolls are too hot when you add the glaze, it will melt. If they’re too cold, it won’t spread and ooze over them. Set a timer for 10 min after taking it out of the oven it will be a perfect temperature.
