Lots of people have asked for this recipe to learn how to turn that same amazing dough into cinnamon rolls, so here it is! These cinnamon rolls are perfect. They are soft, fluffy and sticky all at the same time. They melt in your mouth while they’re still hot. Basically, they would die for it. We had to be careful making them because we literally ate the whole pan in one sitting…and there were only four of us.

gluten free:

We have not personally tested any variations of the gluten-free flour. According to reviews, gluten-free flour blends, cup to cupfor this recipe; we cannot personally vouch for it.

Can I make the best homemade cinnamon rolls ever without a stand mixer?

You can knead it by hand! Stir with a spoon first until you can’t stir any more, then knead with your hands. Continue kneading until all the flour is incorporated and/or the dough is soft to the touch and only slightly sticky. It’s a bit of a workout, but it’s worth it!


If you need to reduce your sodium intake for dietary reasons, don’t worry. Reducing salt will not affect the rise. The only thing it will affect is the taste.

Milk temperature:

The milk should be warm to the touch, between 100 and 110 degrees. You can use up to 1% whole milk. We never recommend using skim milk for anything.

Measure flour:

Store-bought flour these days is generally pre-sifted. There is no need to sift your flour. We prefer the scoop and sweep method because it’s so convenient. Just use a measuring cup to scoop out the flour and smooth out the top.Use to weigh your flour Kitchen Scale is the only way to ensure complete accuracy. Even so, making bread is fickle and forgiving, and the actual amount of flour you add can change due to the humidity in the air. When making this roll, it’s best to follow the texture of the dough. 1 cup of flour is about 125 grams.

How soft should my butter be?

Butter should be room temperature and easy to the touch. If you’re softening butter in the microwave, be sure to work in small time increments so you don’t end up with any pools of melted butter.

Salted or unsalted butter:

I tested the recipe with both salted and unsalted butter and there was no big or noticeable difference. Both will work.

Can I use bread flour?

We used both all purpose flour and bread flour and there was no big or noticeable difference. We have no preference, so use whatever is convenient.

How should the dough feel?

The dough should be a little sticky, but still very soft and pliable. It should just barely stick to the bowl. If you add too much flour, the dough gets tough and so will your rolls. You can definitely feel the softness of the dough just by touching it.
