  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm milk (about 110°F)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a small bowl, froth the yeast with warm milk using the frother. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes foamy.
  2. In the mixer bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt.
  3. Add the frothed yeast mixture, melted butter, and egg to the dry ingredients.
  4. Use the mixer to combine the ingredients until a dough forms. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic.
  5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon.
  7. Preheat the furnace to 375°F (190°C).
  8. Punch down the risen dough and roll it out on a floured surface using the kneader to form a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
  9. Spread the cinnamon filling evenly over the dough.
  10. Starting from one of the long edges, tightly roll the dough into a log.
  11. Cut the log into 8 equal pieces and place them in a greased baking dish.
  12. Let the rolls rise for another 20-30 minutes until they have doubled in size.
  13. Bake in the preheated furnace for 20-25 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.
  14. While the rolls are baking, mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract to make the glaze.
  15. Once the rolls are done baking, remove them from the furnace and let them cool slightly.
  16. Drizzle the glaze over the warm rolls before serving.

Enjoy your homemade cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven with a hot cup of coffee or tea. These rolls are perfect for a weekend breakfast or a special occasion. Happy baking!
