Cinnamon Roll Round-Up

May 9, 2020


Cinnamon rolls! I'm no food blogger but I do have some good recipes up my sleeve from collecting over the years. Ever scroll Pinterest hoping for that epic pick but never know which one to try because they all look divine in the pictures? Yep, I've tried a handful and I'm sharing 2 of my favorites with you today.

This is the one I'm making nearly once a month for the kids to devour, for family members, events, birthdays... you name it. It's a bit tedious but tastes just like cinnabon so it's worth it. The batter will be shaggy and sticky like it says and a tad more ingredients you may not always have around but they're always in our home making it very easy to whip up.

Tip: double the frosting and a thin layer directly after taking them out of the oven to melt into the gaps and then slather it on after they've cooled a bit to enjoy.

I tried these on Easter this year for the first time from my friend, Brooke, and they were delicious!! They are so very similar to the above recipe with taste but much faster. Like 60 minutes start to finish whereas the above is nearly 5 hours. This doesn't show a frosting recipe but here is mine that's so yum - again, double it!

Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe:
  • 4oz cream cheese
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • pinch of salt


Overall, they are both in my back pocket/recipe canister in my kitchen and depending on time allotment determines which I grab at to make. I do love kneading the dough and making it a fun day with the girls so I'll most likely grab at the longer version most of the time.

Do you have a favorite cinnamon roll recipe? If you don't give one of these a try!
