  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • For the Filling:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon


  1. Begin by activating the yeast. In a small bowl, combine warm milk (about 110°F), a pinch of sugar, and the yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes foamy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture, melted butter, egg, and water. Mix until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place it in a greased bowl, cover it with a kitchen towel, and let it rise for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
  4. Roll out the dough into a rectangle on a floured surface. Spread the softened butter over the dough and sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Roll up the dough tightly from the long side to form a log. Cut it into 12 equal slices.
  6. Place the cinnamon roll slices in a greased baking dish and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the cinnamon rolls for 25-30 minutes or until they are golden brown.
  8. While the rolls are baking, prepare the cream cheese frosting by mixing softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt until smooth.
  9. Once the cinnamon rolls are out of the oven, let them cool for a few minutes, then drizzle with the cream cheese frosting.
  10. Serve warm and enjoy the irresistible taste of homemade cinnamon rolls!
