Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

I’m sure there are a million recipes out there for homemade cinnamon rolls, but I wanted to share mine.  Well, it came from my friend Linda, but they’ve become mine. I like the simple method, and anytime I can use the microwave as a short cut, I love it.  Because you are scalding the milk at the beginning, the dough is already warm when you begin the rising process, so takes much less time to rise. Though anything needing the dough to rise seems to be a longer process than I usually like, my kids and I made these on our movie marathon day, so we were just home for the afternoon. I’ll let the pictures do the talking, scroll down for the recipe. (Sadly my images are a bit orange from working on my secondary computer).






Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Roll:

2 cups milk

1  1/2  stick butter

1 T salt

1/2 cup sugar

3 eggs

2 T yeast

9 cups flour

cinnamon/sugar

pecans (optional)

Frosting:

1/4 cup melted butted

1 T milk

2-3 cups powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

dash of salt

Scald 2 cups milk (4-5 minute in microwave on HIGH).  Add 1 stick butter and stir until melted. Add 1 T salt and 1/2 cup sugar. Mix must be warm not hot. Add 3 beaten eggs.

meanwhile…dissolve 2 T yeast in 1 cup warm water. Add to mixture. Add 9 cups of flour (2 cups at a time) stirring after each cup. (I use my kitchenaide mixer with the hook on it).

Place the bowl in a warm spot by the window with a towel over it for it to rise. Twice. Punch it down after the first rising.  Because you are scalding the milk at the beginning, the dough is already warm when you begin the rising process, so takes much less time to rise. About 30 min. each time (in warm  Texas by the window).

Divide the dough in half. Roll out on a floured surface into a large rectangle. Spread about 1/2 stick softened butter over dough then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon (and pecans if desired). Roll into one long roll and cut in 1 inch pieces. Lay on cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (checking the minutes before just in case). Roll the other half and do the same.

Frost while hot with 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 T milk, 2-3 cups powdered sugar,  1 tsp. vanilla, and dash of salt. Top with more pecans if desired.

Yields 20-25 yummy cinnamon rolls

  1. How long did you let yours rise?

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Good question, though it may be variable depending on how warm it is in your home. I edited to add this above: Because you are scalding the milk at the beginning, the dough is already warm when you begin the rising process, so takes much less time to rise. I set my timer for 30 minutes for each rising, and that was sufficient, but I was just waiting til it got to the top of the bowl and nearly touched the towel I placed over it.

  2. Well.. all I can say is that those pictures are borderline mean since I can’t reach into the computer and eat one. :) But other than that, yummy! I have an ok cinnamon roll recipe and haven´t found a perfect one yet, I´ll have to give this one a try!

  3. They sound yummy…although I think you should switch out your regular sugar for brown sugar. I promise it will change your life. Okay, maybe not, but it is SO much better in cinnamon rolls than white sugar!! ;D

  10. Have you ever tried to freeze these? If so, did you/could you freeze them before or after you baked them? I would love to freeze them before baking (after rolling & cutting them). Thanks!!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      I haven’t tried that before…I would freeze after baking though…let me know if you try it!
