For the BREAD

  • 3 cups Flour 390 g
  • 3/4 cup Warm milk 180 g
  • 1/4 cup Unsalted butter(softened) 57 g
  • 1 Egg Room temperature
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Sugar 32 g
  • 1 1/4 Salt
  • 1 tsp Instant Yeast or Active dry yeast(1 1/4 tsp)


  • 1/2 cup Soft Brown Sugar(tightly packed cup) 90 g
  • 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter (softened) 57 g
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon Powder


  • 2/3 cup Cream Cheese(room temperature) 3 ounce or 80 g
  • 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter(softened) 43 g
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extact 1/2 tsp vanilla sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar 125 g



  • To make the bread dough,we need to add our ingredients(Add the milk,egg,sugar,salt,butter,yeast and flour ) into a bowl and mix everything together until you get a shaggy mass of dough.
    For the proper blending of all the ingredients,we need to keep all our ingredients at room temperature.
    Yeast always love a sweet and warm environment to bloom up.So it will be good if we use slightly warm milk.
  • Knead the dough for 4-5 minutes or until you get a soft and hydrated dough.
    If you fllow the measurements in grams then your dough will be of consistency..but if you are using cup measurements the texture of the dough may differ slightly as cup measurements are not accurate.So we should know the consistency of our dough.It should be soft and well hydrated dough.The final dough will not be sticky but still tacky to the touch.
  • Flatten the surface of dough a bit and Let the dough sit on the counter for 5 minutes.
    Dont forget to cover it with a bowl to make sure the dough will not get dry.
    This is not for proofing the dough.But this will prevent the tendancy of the dough to rebound back while rolling.


  • Roll the dough into a rectangle of approximately 17-18 inches in lenth and 14-15 inches in breadth and 1/4 th of an inch thickness.
    Smear the butter evenly on the sheet of dough.And then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar and spread it evenly.
    Roll the dough into a long cylinder if 17-18 inches in lenth.
    Divide the rolls into 12 equal pieces.
    Place the rolls on a well greased baking dish or a baking dish lined witha parchment paper.
    Cover the tray with a plastic film.


  • Let the rolls proof for 60 minutes or until they puff up nicely.


  • Bake the cinnamon rolls at 350F for 18-20 minutes.
    If you find the rolls getting browned on top too quickly,cover the top with an aluminum foil to prevent over browning.
  • After baking you will get Soft and Fluffy Cinnamon Rolls which are golden brown on top with that sticky caramelized sugar on the bottom adorned by that beautiful swirls of cinnamon sugar.The cinnamon rolls are feather light and soft and fluffy and they tastes delicious.


  • In a bowl add the softened cheese butter,vanila extract and salt.Thoroughly beat until they become light and plale yellow in color.Add the powdered sugar little by little and beat until you get silky smooth cream cheese frosting.
  • Cinnamon rolls are not the same without that cream cheese frosting.
    Apply the cream cheese frosting while the rolls are still warm.This will make the frosting to melt into the cracks of rolls making everybite full of gooey frosted deliciousness.
  • ENJOY!
