Looking at a cinnamon roll recipe which brown sugar should I use?

does regular brown sugar exist because I don't think I've seen it before, all I see is light or dark and the last time I tried dark brown sugar it leaked all these fluids out and it made the cinnamon rolls really hard cause I had to bake em even more

    If a recipe fails to specify light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, light brown sugar is what is intended. Sloppy recipe writing.

      This is my go to recipe and I always use light brown sugar. Enjoy

        I almost always use dark brown sugar, because I love the caramelly effect it promotes, but many folks prefer the light brown. Dark brown sugar doesn't "leak any fluids" that I've ever experienced in the past 50 years....

          The only leaking (if anything) should be butter IMO
