Delicious homemade cinnamon rolls, are one of my favorite treats. I especially love cinnamon rolls with raisins in them. This is the perfect recipe because it’s delicious, simple, and easy. I’m not sure which one I love more cinnamon rolls or chocolate cake. By the way if you’re in need of a mouthwatering and decadent chocolate cake recipe, be sure to click here. Although I enjoy cinnamon rolls, I have found that the store bought cinnamon rolls are just too sweet and processed. Therefore, I have decided to bake my own from scratch.
This is such a great recipe for when you have a craving for something sweet, but don’t want to feel guilty for indulging. Keep reading for directions and the finished product.
You may eat the whole pan of cinnamon rolls, because they’re just that good!
As always before you start baking, you need your list of ingredients.
You will use all these ingredients, but they are broken down because they will be used separately for the dough, filling, and the glaze.
-1 cup of warm milk
-1 tablespoon instant dry yeast
-2 tablespoons white granulated sugar
-1 teaspoon salt
-3 tablespoons salted butter softened
-3 cups all-purpose flour
-1/2 cup salted butter melted
-1 cup brown sugar
-2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
-4 ounces cream cheese softened
-1/4 cup salted butter softened
-1 to 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
In a bowl, began to add yeast, sugar, salt, butter, eggs, and warm milk. Then begin to mix everything together on low. Then begin to add your flour into the dough, increase the speed to medium.
Once your dough is finished it should be soft and tacky. It should not stick to your hands at all.
Then place your dough in a greased mixing bowl and cover it with a towel for about an hour. This will allow your dough time to rise.
In a smaller bowl combine brown sugar and ground cinnamon.
After you’ve let your dough rise, roll out your dough and butter it.
Once you finished sprinkling in your brown sugar and cinnamon, you can begin to add raisins (if you desire).
Then you will begin to tightly roll your dough.
Continue to roll your dough and then you can use a knife to cut your dough into one-inch slices.
Lightly grease a pan or parchment paper. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Place your cinnamon rolls onto the lightly greased pan or parchment paper for about 30 minutes, to allow them to puff before you put them in the oven. They will cook for about 20 minutes, or until the tops are a light golden brown.
How to make your Cream Cheese Glaze
While you’re waiting for your cinnamon rolls to finish baking, you can begin to make your cream cheese glaze. First, you will mix cream cheese and butter in a bowl until it’s light and fluffy. Then you can add sugar and vanilla extract. The milk is added to give the drizzle effect, so make sure that you’re adding in enough.
After you remove your cinnamon rolls from the oven, you can drizzle them with glaze. Sorry guys I ate two!
