Homemade Cinnamon Cinnamon Rolls: A Classic Recipe

Unfortunately, no homemade recipe can match the classic products of the Cinabon bakeries, and all because the secrets of cooking keep in the strictest confidence. But you can get closer to it, because even the strictest secrets open with time.

One of the company's net finds is to use flour when mixing dough, the gluten content of which is much higher than in ordinary varieties. Such flour is difficult to find in stores, grocery stores and supermarkets, so you have to choose one of two ways.

The first is to add wheat gluten to the dough, but this is probably too simple and does not always guarantee an excellent result. Therefore, it is best to try to cook the gluten yourself, and then combine with the dough.


  • Fresh milk - 200 ml.
  • Sugar - 100 gr.
  • Fresh yeast - 50 gr.
  • Butter - 80 gr.
  • Flour - 700 gr. (perhaps its amount will have to vary in one direction or another).
  • Salt - 0.5 tsp.


  1. For gluten, take water (2 tbsp.) And flour (1 tbsp. L.), From these ingredients, knead a lump of dough.
  2. Send it under a stream of cold water, rinse until it loses density. When the dough becomes sticky in appearance, you can consider it ready to send to the dough for synnabon.
  3. The dough itself is prepared in the usual way. Milk to warm on the fire, to a warm, but not hot state.
  4. Pour sugar into milk (1 tbsp. L.) And put the yeast. Stir in the spoon, dissolve the sugar and yeast.
  5. Opara should stand in a warm place for a third of an hour. During this time, bubbles will appear on the mass - a signal that the fermentation process is proceeding as it should.
  6. While the sponge reaches the desired state, beat the eggs with the remaining portion of sugar and salt. You can go even further, whipping separately the proteins with sugar and the yolks with sugar, and then putting everything together.
  7. Add softened butter to the sweet whipped egg mass. Continue whipping. It is more convenient to do a mixer.
  8. The next stage is the connection of the oil-egg sweet mass with the opium. Again, the mixer helps out, which makes it easy, fast, evenly.
  9. Stage for kneading dough last - adding gluten and flour. Last sprinkle a little, each time achieving complete stirring. First, you can use a mixer, then knead hands. Ready signal - the dough is homogeneous, gentle, lags behind the hands.
  10. To lift the container with the dough to put in a warm place, away from drafts, open vents and doors. When raising the dough, it must be kneaded several times, that is, returned to its original state.
  11. After 2–3 battings, you can start making the cream and molding classic cinnabons.
