Cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting

  • As salam. How are you? These few weeks were quite hectic with family activities so, I couldn't write any entry though I have a lot in mind. 
  • Yesterday was quite fun as I experimented bun making and the best part was of course when it was a success!
  • I took the recipe from here.  The original recipe requires a bread machine, but I decided to do some arm and wrist exercises by using my hands :) 
  • This rolls will take about 3 hours of your time. Yup, that you need to let the dough rise and so on. 
  • Here's the recipe for those who want to build muscle ;P
Cinnamon Rolls


237ml  Warm milk 
18g  Dry yeast
76g  Butter/Margarine (melted)
540g  Bread flour
100g Granulated white sugar
2  Eggs
1 teaspoon  Salt


200g Brown sugar 
2 1/2 tablespoons  Ground cinnamon
60g Butter(room temperature)


85g  Cream cheese
50g  Butter (room temperature)
180g  Confectioner's sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence


  • First, in a large bowl, dissolve the yeast into the milk to activate it for about 5 mins. 
  • Then, mix in the eggs, butter, sugar and salt. 
  • Next, add in the flour and mix well. Dust your hands with some flour and knead the dough into a ball. 

  • Place the dough back in the bowl and cover the bowl with a plastic wrap or a damp towel. You may even place the bowl in the oven that has been preheated. Don't forget to switch off the oven before placing the bowl.

  • After 1 hour or when the size doubles, take the dough out. Lightly floured your work surface and punch the dough.  This is to release any gas in it.

  • Let is rest for about 10 mins. 
  • Prepare the filling. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Roll dough into a 16x21inch rectangle. Spread some butter on the dough followed by the filling mixture evenly. 

  • Roll up the dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place them in the baking pan. 

  • Cover and let them rise for about 30mins. Preheat your oven to 200deg celcius.

  • Then, bake rolls until golden brown for about 15 minutes.

  • While baking, prepare the frosting. Beat together butter, cream cheese and vanilla essence.
  • Spread frosting before serving. Enjoy your rolls!
