Classic Cinnamon Rolls - Mouth Watering Recipe and more !!

Classic Cinnamon Rolls

Karachi has stretched its new sectors, from china port to outwards towards the charna island. I feel the change palpably on couple of annual visits. There is a new network of roads, a proliferation of malls too. What I love about the city is the call of variety of food not restricted only towards Pakistani and Indian food but at my surprise I cram my trip with list of cuisines. December is a lovely time to visit, but I prefer warm days coaxing flowers to bloom, trumpet flowers hung heavy with their fragrance, in my father in-laws garden, we had many cups of afternoon tea and late lunches in the garden. How can I forget that mama in-law made her signature biryani of chicken along with fruit custard and of course sight seeing, the latter often makes me feel like a tourist.

Hashim and I woke up early on Sunday to drive to the mall of Karachi. We had wanted to take pictures of the ancient buildings and museums. Karachi malls are the namesake of the mall in Dubai, it has existed because of the impressive and stunning architectural talent in the locals of Pashtun laborer, worth exploring to witness a piece of dubai. We ended our morning excursion on a breakfast of cinnamon rolls, chocochip waffles and frappuccino (Clifton city). The place we picked was tranquil and capacious, cinnabon rolls came out in a tray of their own in a steady rhythm. They were surprisingly good in a way soft bread rolled in flavors with delicate frosting all over the top, nothing can smell as good as freshly baked cinnabon rolls. If I am given an option to select the soft rolls or Hermes bag, I would choose these rolls! we were addicted to it, afterwards we had inviting waffles and came along candy ice cream!

Classic Cinnamon Rolls

Preparation Time: 1 hour 20 minutes  
Cooking Time: 15 minutes 
Total Time: 1 hour 35 minutes
Servings: 10 persons

1 cup milk
2 eggs 
1/3 cup butter, room temperature
4 cups bread flour (plus extra for rolling)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1 package active dry yeast
For Filling:
1 cup brown sugar packed
3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter softened
For Frosting:
4 ounce cream cheese softened
1/4 cup butter softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

  • Take a large mixing bowl and combine 2 cups of the flour and yeast.
  • In a saucepan, mix milk, butter, sugar and salt over medium heat until temperature reaches 120 to 130 degrees. Once butter is almost melted, pour milk mixture to flour mixture along with eggs and continuously mix with an electric mixer on low for 30 seconds. Stir in as much of the flour as you can. 
  • Place dough on a floured surface and knead in as much flour as possible. Continue to knead the dough until it is very smooth and elastic for almost about 5-10 minutes. Cover dough with cooking spray and plastic wrap. Let rest covered for about 15 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
  • Roll the dough into rectangle. Spread 1/3 cup butter on the dough and top with the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  • Starting with the long side, roll up dough and cut into 12 even rolls. Grease a  baking pan and place the rolls in the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let rise until nearly doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Bake rolls on the center rack about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • While the rolls are baking, combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt with a mixer until fluffy.
  • Allow rolls to cool for about 10-15 minutes and spread frosting on warm rolls. Eat fresh!
