Cinnamon Rolls (Cinnabon Clone)



12 portion(s)


  • 240 grams milk
  • 65 grams butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 650 grams bakers flour
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 10 grams dry yeast


  • 250 grams brown sugar, to taste, dark or light
  • 65 grams Butter, room temperature
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon


  • 250 grams raw sugar
  • 55 grams butter
  • 125 grams cream cheese
  • 1 centimetre vanilla bean
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Recipe's preparation

  1. Weigh milk and butter into TM mixing bowl. Heat on 50 degrees C for 3 min on speed 1

    Add remaining dough ingredients in order given. Process 15 seconds on speed 7 to make a rough dough.  Then Knead 2 minutes on Dough mode.

    Turn dough out onto Thermomat or into bowl and let prove for 1 hour or until doubled.

    Roll out dough on Thermomat or lightly floured surface to 35 x 50 cm rectangle (love the Thermomat built-in-ruler!). Let rest while preparing filling.

  2. Filling
  3. Two options:

    a. Spread dough with softened  65 g butter, sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon. Yes, this is 2-and-a -half TABLEspoons tmrc_emoticons.;)  This recipe is very caramel-and-cinnamon-y!

    OR if you prefer,

    b. you can weight the filling ingredients into the TM bowl and mix 10 sec on speed 4 until creamy, then spread the pre-blended filling on the dough: your choice! Whatever you find easiest.

  4. Roll dough from long side and cut into 12 rolls (use your wonderful spatula). Place rolls in a lightly greased 23 x 33 cm baking tin lined with baking paper. Cover an let rise for 30 minutes; meanwhile, preheat your oven to 200 degrees C.

    Bake in a preheated oven for approx 15 minutes, or until golden.  While baking, prepare the icing.

  5. Icing
  6. Mill sugar together with vanilla bean into icing sugar 20 seconds on speed 9. (substitute 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla essence or extract after milling sugar if you don't have vanilla bean)

    Add butter, cream cheese and salt. Heat on 37 degrees for 2 minutes on speed 2.

    Spread icing on rolls while still hot out of the oven.  Trust me tmrc_emoticons.;)

  7. Optional Make-ahead Method!
  8. Instead of the final "cover and let rise 30 minutes", after you have placed your big yum cinnamon rolls in the baking tin, cover and refrigerate overnight. 

    Put them straight from the fridge into the pre-heated oven and enjoy them fresh-baked the next morning.

    I made this last weekend and they definitely satisfied my craving. I think I probably screwed up with the flour I used as I wasn't really sure what was meant by baker's flour. From the internet search I did, I saw it was canadian for bread flour, which, in hindsight, can't be the right flour to use for a sweat yeasted bread. I would probably try either plain all purpose or something like cake flour? I couldn't be asked to figure it out. They were still ridiculously gooey and delicious and soooo sweet. I might try a sourdough cinnamon roll next time but keep the icing from this recipe as that is the real star with the cream cheese in it.
