  • For the Dough:
    • All-purpose flour
    • Granulated sugar
    • Active dry yeast
    • Milk
    • Unsalted butter
    • Salt
    • Eggs
  • For the Filling:
    • Brown sugar
    • Ground cinnamon
    • Unsalted butter
  • For the Glaze:
    • Powdered sugar
    • Milk
    • Vanilla extract


  1. Activate the yeast by mixing it with warm milk and a pinch of sugar. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Beat eggs and add them to the flour mixture along with the activated yeast mixture. Knead until a smooth dough forms.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean towel, and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the filling by mixing brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  6. Roll out the dough into a rectangle on a floured surface, then spread softened butter over the surface and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  7. Roll up the dough tightly from the long side and cut into equal-sized rolls.
  8. Place the rolls in a greased baking dish, cover, and let them rise again until puffy.
  9. Preheat the oven and bake the rolls until golden brown and cooked through.
  10. While the rolls are baking, prepare the glaze by mixing powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  11. Drizzle the glaze over the warm rolls and serve.


  • Ensure the yeast is activated properly by using warm milk and a pinch of sugar. It should become frothy within 5-10 minutes.
  • Knead the dough until it’s smooth and elastic, which helps develop gluten for a soft texture.
  • When rolling out the dough, make sure it’s evenly shaped to ensure uniform sweet rolls.
  • For the filling, ensure the butter is softened to easily spread over the dough, and evenly distribute the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • Allow the rolls to rise in a warm, draft-free area until doubled in size for a light and airy texture.
  • Bake the sweet rolls until they’re golden brown on top and cooked through, but be careful not to overbake to avoid dryness.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the warm rolls for a delicious finishing touch, adding sweetness and moisture.
  • Serve the sweet rolls fresh for the best taste and texture, or store them in an airtight container for later enjoyment.
