easy recipe for cinnamon rolls

paprkutr Dec 13, 2009 06:10 PM

I need a easy recipe to make fresh cinnamon rolls. Maybe something I can make the night before and bake in the morning.

    The night before: Prep the dough, filling, rolling and cutting, place in baking pan(s), cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. The buns will rise slowly. Take them out of the fridge 30 minutes or so before baking (go shower or something), and bake in a preheated oven.

      Try this no knead one from Artisan bread. You mix up the dough, put it in the refrigerator. The night before, assemble and refrigerate. The mornng of, take it out and let it come to room temp (I do it before I shower and that's about the right amount of time), and bake:

        Cook's Country Ultimate cinnamon rolls are incredible, and can be made the night before, and baked the next morning.

              Here's the recipe, for those who don't want to sign up for ATK.


              I wonder why they didn't just use cake flour for AP flour and cornstarch? Did they address that?

                The article did address that. I think using all cake flour made a too-soft brioche, but don't have it to check.

              Giada De Laurentis's Hazelnut Cinnamon Rolls are super easy (she uses frozen bread dough as a shortcut) and super delicious:
