It was 8pm the night before last and we were sitting in the living room when Jody said, “How about if I make some cinnamon rolls for breakfast tomorrow morning?” Why wait until morning?

I couldn’t believe how quickly she brought out these warm, scrumptious rolls which, at 10:30pm, we happily devoured! I’m sharing the recipe.


Cinnamon Rolls

3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup soft butter
3 1/4 cups flour
1 pkg yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup water
1 egg

1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup soft butter

Heat milk until bubbles. Remove, add butter till melts. Cool to lukewarm.

Mix 2 1/4 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix well. Add water, egg and milk mixture.

Add remaining flour – 1/2 cup at a time. Stir well after additions. When dough has pulled together, knead until smooth about 5 mins. (Jody did not use a Mixer and the dough was as smooth as a baby’s bottom)

Cover bowl with damp cloth for 10 minutes

Mix brown sugar, cinnamon and butter

Roll out to 12×9 inches. Spread sugar mixture.

Roll in a dough in a long tube and cut rolls.

Cover and let rise until doubled – about 30 minutes.

PREHEAT OVEN TO 375 degrees. Bake 20 minutes.
