The Yummiest Cinnamon Rolls

These is the best cinnamon rolls recipe EVER; the dough turns out so soft and it softly melts in your mouth. You will simply have an almost paradisaical experience as you eat them and will never venture into buying store bought cinnamon rolls again.
rolls ingredients
2 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups flour (mix together)
Then add
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 ROUNDED soup spoons of dry active yeast (mix together)
Then add
2 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil (mix together)
Continue mixing; add more flour (about 2-3 cups) until dough is stiff. Knead for about 10 minutes until dough is no longer sticky.Cover and let rise double in size (about 45 min to an hour). Punch down dough, cover and let rise again to double its size.
This time dough is ready to work. Take the dough and cut it in half. Roll into a circle with a rolling pin. Take about 1/4 cup butter and generously coat dough with it. Take about 2 Tbsp of sugar and mix it with 1-2 tsp of cinnamon.  Coat the buttered side of the dough with sugar and cinnamon. Take one edge of the dough (the long side) and roll it up like you do with a rug. Then cut into 12 pieces and place in a greased 13by9 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until tops are nice golden brown.
Rolls baking
Drizzle with your favorite icing. We mixed cream cheese (4 oz),  powder sugar (3-4 cups),and milk (2-3 tbsp) until creamy and because it was St Patty’s we added a couple drops of food coloring to make it green.

  1. Your blog is really good at making me hungry :P

    And the cinnamon roll with green looks SO weird. Like it's some kind of chemical that's unsafe to eat! But I'm sure it tasted delicious.

  2. hahahah you are so funny! For the day green was perfect..but truth is have you looked at the labels of food coloring??? so good thing we are only green once a year!! :)

  3. I kind of have to second the green food coloring comment, I always think that about Red Velvet Cake too, but practically every food you buy at the grocery store has colorings in it :(

    Baby did a great job baking these for us though ;)

  4. So, I made green scrambled eggs for Akiko for St. Patty's breakfast and they looked totally gross, but, thanks to Dr. Suess, Akiko loved them.

    Anyway, I read in a food article about cinnamon rolls that if you want to cut them perfectly and not smoosh them, take length of unflavored dental floss, slide it under your roll/log, criss-cross the floss over the top and pull. I haven't tried it yet because I haven't made cinnamon rolls in a long time, but apparently, this is a tried and true method for perfect looking cinnamon rolls.

    This sounds like a way easy recipe and I'm excited to try it!
