I made these five years ago and ignore any negative comments. If you follow it as written you might surprise yourself, or not, with the absolute most fluffy, delicious and comforting cinnamon rolls ever!! The only thing I did was reduce the sugar in filling and glaze as for personal preference. I would d not change anything else. Just superb goodness!!
I've baked plenty of cinnamon rolls. These are by far the best! They melt in your mouth.
These are ridiculously good. Melt in your mouth fantastic and I thought super easy. Some comments below say rise was lacking - I didn’t think my rise looked great either but when tasted they were SO heavenly light and fluffy. Two days after Easter I just heated some up and am still in love.
It does say the yield serves 48 MINI buns.. so, if you are cutting them full size, you would only get the 20 or so people are saying they got. Just sayin'.
To all those who had negative comments about the recipe I give you a big 👎 ... recipe was extremely easy to follow, and as a result I had the cinnamon rolls I remember having as a child .
Followed recipe but I added a pinch of nutmeg and 1 tsp of vanilla extract, also used homemade cashew milk instead of whole milk and vegan butter, they came out great. I don't know why most people are complaining? Most cinnamon roll recipes are alike.
Kate, I have not as yet made these as I am trying to loose weight but I have passed it on to many others I know that love and can eat this type of food. My reason for writing you is after reading some of these reviews I'm not sure if I should just stop reading, realize there are some people not as fortunate as we are or just speak my mind. A recipe that has so many ratings must be good that being said that does not mean one can not make their own variation to taste modifications. If someone likes them crispy leave it in longer, sweeter add more sugar, more flavor add more cinnamon etc... The basic recipe as is sounds EXCELLENT and again with more ratings than the average recipe all of which are very good these few who sent in bad reviews need to ask themselves a few things. Were all my ingredients fresh, did I accidentally get distracted and make a mistake. Before I make these do I think I might like them, only you know what you like. You can never please everyone but reading some of these reviews I say there is NOTHING wrong with the recipe but those who either can not follow instructions clearly given by the way or understand the concept of cooking. Thank you for an excellent recipe and patience dealing with those who know not what they do. Looking forward to the day I can make these for myself and others.
Well the bad first. The directions were a bit confusing, never really liked the numbered/bullet point baking directions. It is best to read a few times then follow to the t. I came up with one sheet dough about 1/4 inch thick I trimmed to 14x8. I then formed a ball with scrap, let rise and baked. After the dough came out of the freezer to firm up I spread filling and rolled. I then put it back into freezer to freeze solid and cut one or two off as needed. Not gonna have anywhere near 48 rolls, maybe 20 if I reused scraps. Now the good. These rolls are awesome. Fluffy, buttery. Dough is slightly sweet and the rolls are good without glaze. I proofed(second rise) mine in the oven. I set oven to 200 and let it get up to temp put in a pan with water on the bottom rack and waited 10 minutes. I cut of 2 rolls and put on cookie sheet with parchment. Let rise for 15 minutes. I was surprised it only took 15 minutes from frozen to proofed. I then baked at 375 for 20 minutes.
These were just awful. Crumbly and dry. Not enough cinnamon filling. Was embarassed to serve these, and almost none of my guests even finished theirs.
I'm sorry that some people have been disappointed with this recipe. We've adjusted it slightly, increasing the amount of salt in the dough and calling for a longer proofing time. We've also cut back the amount of time it takes to bake the rolls. Please try them again, if you can. They're delicious!
This is a terrible recipe! I wish I had read the other comments. The bread in indeed very bland. The ingredients are listed in a confusing way. It's not always clear what ingredients are used for what part and when. There are a lot of steps of just waiting for the dough to either rise again or get hard (cold). And the result is not big, fluffy and tasty. It's squished, dry and bland. I love to bake and I've never been compelled to write a review until now. Such a disappointment.
I consider myself a pretty decent baker. Nothing extraordinary, not totally inept. Afraid my usual sourdough cinnamon rolls wouldn't be a huge hit on Christmas morning, I decided to give these a shot. I followed the recipe to a t. Baked them up and there was no oven spring what so ever. They're sad looking rolls, that never poofed further than their final proof. I'm not even sure I want to serve them, so I cannot comment on flavor. But at the very least, texture and presentation will be lacking. They are not beautiful puffy cinnamon rolls of Christmas morning dreams... they look more like they'd be better served New Year's Day, when Diet resolutions are in play and one is trying to feign health conciousness by eating 100 calorie bites of junk food.
Making these right now! Maybe a new Christmas tradition is beginning...:) Merry Christmas!
Just made these, delicious! Soft and buttery. I doubled the amount of butter and sugar in the filling and had just enough. Also baked them at 325 for 18 minutes with an inch of space between each roll. Didn't make 48, maybe 20, but more than enough for my family. Going to try it with cardamom next time instead of cinnamon. :)
These were terrible! The dough was flavorless and there wasn't nearly enough cinnamon/sugar filling. I rolled these out exactly as the recipe instructed and ended up with 48 quarter sized rolls. I let them rise for over an hour after cutting and they didn't puff up at all. There was nothing light or fluffy about these rolls. They were hard, chewy, and bland. I will NOT make this recipe again.
