Today I am sharing a recipe for the perfect cinnamon rolls. These rolls are light, fluffy and full of cinnamon-sugar goodness. Don’t forget to top them off with cream cheese frosting!
Wake up tomorrow morning and make a batch of freshly baked cinnamon rolls! I asked you what makes the perfect cinnamon roll and many of you responded that light, fluffy big rolls are ideal. You also love a lot of cinnamon, chopped pecans and cream cheese frosting. To achieve the perfect cinnamon roll, I started with a basic beginner’s frosted cinnamon roll recipe and added all of the elements that you love. The result is big, fluffy cinnamon rolls with plenty of pecan cinnamon-sugar filling and rich and creamy frosting.
Don’t be intimidated by yeast. Baking with yeast isn’t as difficult and complicated as you may think. From pizza dough and breadsticks, to cinnamon rolls and coffee cake, the options are endless for creating easy and delicious recipes using yeast. Kids will love baking with yeast. Plus, I think kneading dough can be fun and relaxing. Grab your family and make a recipe that the entire family will love!
I highly recommend following all of the instructions in the recipe below. Let the dough sit for 10 minutes to rise before rolling and cutting into cinnamon rolls. Once cut into rolls and placed in the baking pan, cover the rolls again with a towel and move to a warm location for at least one hour. I like to leave mine on the counter in the kitchen in front of a filtered window to get a little extra heat.
Big, fluffy cinnamon rolls are perfect for sharing. This is my go-to recipe when I want to make something special to share with guests. These are perfect for a holiday brunch or even just for snacking. Baking with yeast is a simple process that delivers amazing results. I love using the Fleischmann’s® Yeast website as a guide for perfecting my cinnamon rolls and educating myself about yeast. The website is an amazing resource for tips and tricks to help you get started and ensure that your rolls turn out great. With technique videos and a list of tips and tricks, you will be on your way to baking a beautiful recipe in little time.
Here are my top 3 tips for baking with yeast. For more tips, tricks and recipes visit the Fleischmann’s Yeast website.
(1) Follow the recipe’s directions precisely. Pay special attention to baking time and temperature.
(2) Allow plenty of time to let the dough rest. Cover the top of the dough with a damp, clean cloth and set in a warm place. With Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast keep dough covered until it doubles in size, about 1 hour.
(3) To determine if the dough passes the “doubled in size” stage, press the tips of two fingers lightly and quickly about ½ inch into the dough. If the impression you made stays, the dough is doubled.
Try something new this weekend and make a batch of warm, comforting cinnamon rolls. With the perfect amount of cinnamon-sugar filling, frosting and dough, you will create a treat that everyone will love.
