Cinnamon roll

Here is the recipe

For the dough

2 cups- Whole Milk

1/2 cup –Vegetable Oil

1/2  cup –Sugar

1  pack –Active Dry Yeast(7 gms)

4 cups + half cup All-purpose Flour

1/2 tsp- Baking Powder

1/2 tsp- Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Salt

To make layers

Plenty Of Melted Butter

1 – cup granulated sugar

 10 gms-Cinnamon powder

Flour to dust


1.Mix Sugar, Milk and Oil and Boil it for 5 minutes

2.Cool it to Lukewarm temperature, add the yeast and rest it for 10 minutes

3.Add 4 cups of flour to it and mix to a dough, rest it for 2-4 hours (The dough doubles in size, so keep it in bigger bowl and cover it with towel/napkin

4.Mix half cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add this flour little by little to dough and knead it well (dont worry, if ur dough is too sticky).

5.Store the dough in fridge for overnight and can bake it for next two days

6.The dough will be bigger in size, u can punch it once in a while (or when u r angry)

Get ready with the dough, Sugar, Ground Cinnamon and Butter (at room temp)

Time to play

Choose a wide clean space, spread some flour generously, roll the dough (i divided the dough into two) upto an inch thickness in rectangular shape evenly. If u make thin spread, ur rolls will break while baking.

Apply some butter generously

Sprinkle Some Sugar, i used Quarter cup

Some cinnamon

Roll the dough firmly and donot press/pull it

Pinch both the sides and seal them, Cut the roll with pastry threads or thin knife. The reason is while the roll gets a cut with knife,the shape shouldnot change and layers doesnt stick to each other..

I found pizza cutter is best to cut the rolls

Dont press the dough at any point, move the rolls to flour dusted tray. If u have non-stick tray, use it since cinnamon powder and sugar could stick to bottom while baking. Rest them for 15 minutes while pre-heating the oven for the same time…

Bake these goodies for 35 minutes at 350F degrees

I baked another set of dough with dry fruits..hmm…

Roll the dough, sprinkle some sugar, dry fruits (dust them with flour, thou i missed it) and chocolate chips (y shdn’t i?)

Before rolling over these goodies, the dry fruits can move along, so i gave a press with my spatula..

While making the cut, hold a hand back of the roll to make it easily and the goodies wont spill out

Place the rolls with enough space on a tray

Bake them for 25 minutes at 350*F
