Classic, fluffy and soft cinnamon rolls made from scratch! This is the quickest homemade cinnamon roll recipe that I know and it only requires 1 rise!

Just know that although it’s the quickest homemade cinnamon roll recipe that I know, they still require a bit of time as you need to let them rise.

Although these delicious homemade cinnamon rolls require a bit of time (around 1 hour and 40 minutes, including rising), they are definitely worth it! Because after all, it is hard to beat soft and homemade cinnamon rolls!

Just don't forget to add the glaze after you take the cinnamon rolls out of the oven. The recipe you can find on my website mentioned below.

  • 385 gr wheat flour / 3 cups plus 3 tbsp wheat flour
  • 50 gr granulated sugar / ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 & ¼ tsp instant yeast
  • 120 ml milk / ½ cup milk
  • 60 ml water / ¼ cup water
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 70 gr brown sugar / ⅓ cup plus 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 50 gr raisins / ⅓ cup raisins
  • 120 gr powdered sugar / 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp strong brewed coffee or milk

To a bowl sieve flour and add yeast, salt and sugar. Mix & set aside.
Heat a pan over low heat and add water, milk and butter. Stir until the butter has melted and the mixture is lukewarm.
Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture, add beaten egg and knead until you reach a soft dough (about 4 minutes). Cover and let it rest for 10 minutes.
In the meantime, put the raisins in a cup and add boiled water to soften the raisins. Set aside.
After 10 minutes, roll the dough out on a flour covered surface in a 35×25 cm rectangle and about 0,4 cm thick*.
Spread the softened butter on top. Mix together the cinnamon powder, nutmeg and sugar. Sprinkle it all over the dough.
Drain the raisins and squeeze out the remaining liquid. Sprinkle the raisins all over the dough.
Roll up the dough tightly. Cut into 10-12 even rolls and arrange in a lightly greased round cake pan or pie dish.
Cover the cinnamon rolls with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place for 60-90 minutes*.
After the rolls have doubled in size, preheat the oven to 190°C / 375°F. Bake for 25-28 minutes until lightly browned. If the tops are getting too brown too quickly, loosely cover the rolls with aluminum foil and continue baking. I cover the rolls with aluminum foil the last 5 minutes.
(Coffee) glaze: whisk the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and coffee/milk together. Spread over warm rolls.

    You know, I’ve made cinnamon rolls for over 50 years. NEVER did I read or write a recipe using gr

    or any other it word other than the words Teaspoons, cups or such. Do you expect the general public to understand your recipes? Also I use a mixture of sugar and cinnamon on the dough of the rolls. You may think I’m a smartalec

    but my cinnamon rolls won 1st prize at our fair.

      That's how I make my cinnamon rolls with cinnamon and granulated sugar as well,I agree w/the metric/grams. I had a hard enough time learning the regular measurements (1/2,1/4 cup ...etc...)
