    About this recipe: Cinnamon rolls can be a arduous affair, but not with this recipe! Ready in less than 90 minutes, you can have warm cinnamon rolls straight from the oven ready before the rest of the family wakes up.

    Makes: 12 cinnamon rolls

    • 180ml milk
    • 55g butter or margarine
    • 400g plain flour, divided
    • 7g quick yeast
    • 50g caster sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 60ml water
    • 1 egg
    • 220g dark brown soft sugar
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • 110g butter or margarine, softened
    • 80g sultanas or raisins (optional)

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:40min rising  ›  Ready in:1hr20min 

    1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in 55g butter or margarine; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine about 300g of the flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; beat well. Add the remaining flour, about 50g at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.
    3. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon and 110g butter or margarine.
    4. Roll out dough into a 30x23cm (12x9 in) rectangle. Spread dough with butter and sugar mixture. Sprinkle with sultanas or raisins if desired. Roll up dough and pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal size rolls and place in 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until browned. Remove from muffin cups to cool. Serve warm.

    This is really a "no brainer" recipe! I was glad this one didn't explicitly mention using a bread machine. These were easy and delicious. I topped them off with a cream cheese icing. (1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup softened margarine, 2 oz cream cheese, 1/2 teas vanilla, and 1/8 teas salt) YUM!  -  18 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very easy and really took only 90 minutes! I tried them both with muffin pans and in an 11 inch square pan. I liked them better in the square pan, they were not as dry but they took longer to cook (about 30-35 minutes instead of 20).  -  02 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The reviews say it all - this is an easy, delicious cinnamon roll recipe! Only thing I did differently was to melt extra butter, sugar and cinnamon to pour on top of the cinnamon rolls just before baking. They turned out very soft, sweet and gooey. Thanks for a great recipe!!  -  04 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
