How to Make Basic Yeast Cinnamon Rolls


  • 1In a large bowl put warm water, yeast and 1 TBSP sugar. Let sit until yeast is dissolved and foaming up around 5-10 minutes.
  • 2Add the remaining sugar, buttermilk, oil and egg.
  • 3Add half of the flour and mix until totally smooth, add remaining flour until you have nice soft dough.
  • 4Turn dough out on to a floured surface and knead for a few minutes until the dough is nice and smooth.
  • 5Place dough in a oiled bowl and cover to let it rise approximately 2 - 3 hours depending on temperature, let rise till it doubles in size.
  • 6Once dough has risen take a few minutes to mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • 7Once again turn the dough out on to a floured surface and stretch lightly and use your hands to spread out in to a rectangle, a big one!!
  • 8Use your hands and butter the whole thing completely on top.
  • 9Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture and cover the entire dough!
  • 10Roll the dough as tightly as possible, then cut into 1 inch slices. Place into a greased pan, cover and set in a warm, dry place until they double in size. (mine didnt quite double, but I think I cut my to short lol)
  • 11Bake at 350 for approximately 19 minutes. Check them when you get close to 20 minutes, oven temps vary.
  • 12While the cinnamon rolls are baking make your glaze/icing mix sugar, vanilla and a little bit of water at a time, until glaze reaches the consistency of your choice.
  • 13Once the cinnamon rolls are done make sure you add the glaze/icing while they are hot! That's it they are finally done!!
