Cinnamon Rolls – Recipe

A few weeks ago I mentioned to my husband that I had a craving for a cinnabon – which I hadn’t eaten since I was pregnant with my now 5 year old.  The next day I came home to find the sweet smell of cinnamon wafting through the house and Cinnamon Rolls in the oven.  They were so delicious we devoured them with our guests far to quickly and a few days later I found him rolling out another batch.


3 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup plain yoghurt
1 tbsp yeast
1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cinnamon
100 grams soft butter

1 cup sugar
1 cup cream
25 grams butter

Preheat oven to 180 and line 2 baking trays with baking paper
Put the flour, sugar, yeast and baking powder in a bowl
Make a well in the middle
Add the oil and yoghurt and mix together
If too moist add flour until no longer too sticky
Knead it until soft and smooth
Leave it bowl covered for 2 hours in a warm place
After it has risen get it out and divide into two pieces
Roll each piece out into a rectangular shape around 5mm thick

Mix the sugar and cinnamon together
Spread the soft butter evenly over the rolled out dough
Sprinkle over brown sugar and cinnamon
Roll up from the long side and cut into 3 cm pieces
Put on baking tray cut side up
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes minutes until golden

Put the sugar and butter in a pan and heat gently until sugar has dissolved
Add the cream and stir continuously for about 5 minutes until sauce in golden
Be careful not to burn it.
Spoon over hot rolls when you take them out of the oven
