Cinnamon Rolls


For the rolls:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 4 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ tablespoon salt

For the filling:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter , melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons ground cinnamon

For the maple icing:

  • 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons maple flavoring
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup butter , melted
  • ¼ cup brewed coffee
  • teaspoons salt


  • Combine the milk, vegetable oil and sugar in a pan and bring just to a boil, when bubbles appear at the edges. Turn off heat and leave to cool for about 30 minutes. When the mixture is lukewarm to warm, sprinkle in the yeast and let it sit for a minute. Then add 4 cups of the flour. Stir mixture together. Cover and let rise for at least an hour.
  • After rising for at least an hour, add the last ½ cup of flour, the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir mixture together.
  • When you are ready to prepare the rolls, sprinkle rolling surface generously with flour. Take half the dough and form a rough rectangle. Then roll the dough thin, maintaining a general rectangular shape. Drizzle ¼ to ½ cup melted butter over the dough. Then sprinkle ½ cup of sugar over the butter followed by half of the cinnamon.
  • Begin rolling up the dough, trying to keep it tight. Pinch the seams of the roll together to seal it. Cut the rolls approximately 1 inch thick.
  • Generously grease your baking pan with butter. You can use a pie pan, cake pan, rimmed sheet pan, etc. Place the cut rolls in the prepared pan. Repeat this process with the other half of the dough. Let the rolls rise for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 375°F until light golden brown (not too dark), about 15 to 18 minutes.
  • For the icing, mix together all ingredients listed and stir well until smooth. It will be thick but pourable. Taste and adjust as needed. Generously drizzle over the warm rolls.
