Decadent. Gooey. Sinful. Sweet. Heaven.
Please just try this recipe and you’ll understand what I mean.
One morning the baby was cooperating and I convinced my husband I was going to make the best cinnamon rolls he has ever eaten. I found this recipe and success. The best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever eaten.
My brother later referred to these lovelies as “food porn” – Ha! But he is right, they are explicit.
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- ⅛ tsp ground cloves
- ⅛ tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
- 2½ cups flour
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1¼ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1¼ cups buttermilk
- 6 Tbsp butter, melted and cooled
- 2 Tbsp butter, softened
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 425
- Melt 1 stick of butter in a bowl, let it cool slightly. Then brush about 1 Tbsp into a 9 inch round pan
- To prepare the filing combine brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a bowl. Add 1 Tbsp of melted butter mixed together with a fork. (The consistency is like wet sand.)
- Whisk together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Combine buttermilk and 2 Tbsp melted butter in another small bowl, then add to the dry ingredients
- Stir to combine until you have a rough dough
- Turn dough out onto a floured surface and kneed until just smooth (limit how much you work the dough)
- Using your hands, press the dough out into about a 9 x 12 inch rectangle.
- Brush with 2 Tbsp melted butter, the sprinkle the filling evenly over the dough. Press the filling gently into the dough and leave a ½ inch border around the edges.
- Using a dough scraper or large spatula loosen the dough from the counter, and roll on the long edge into a tube shape. Pinch the edge to seal.
- Using a sharp knife, cut into 8 equal pieces. Slightly patting each piece to keep the filling in.
- Add the 8 pieces to the 9 inch prepared pan and brush with the remaining melted butter
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
- Prepare your icing in a small bowl by combining the butter, milk and powdered sugar. Adjust by adding more milk or more sugar until you reach the consistency you want.
- Allow the rolls to sit for a few minutes before frosting.
- Drizzle the icing over the cinnamon rolls and serve!
Dig in, Sin, and Enjoy!
