Home-Made Cinnabons

Thursday, April 02, 2015

I know I haven't been around posting much, and I apologize, but now I'm back and I shall be posting, even recipes I just shared on my facebook group will be posted here too. Such a cold, cuddle weather Sunday, this brunch and even dessert treat is easy to make and super delicious, and goes perfect in this cold weather, you will never be puzzled as to what to make for Sunday brunch or even to place on the tea table to indulge in. Now I come from a place where there is no bakery and so making fresh is the only option. My mum made this the other day and I must say eating this hot is like fairies dancing on your tongue!

There are different toppings to use, but the classic is always the best. I will be sharing the cream cheese filling my mum used.


1/4 cup water
1 cup milk
1/2 cup melted butter
1 beaten egg
1 tsp vanilla 
1/2 tsp salt 
1/2 cup sugar 
4 + 1/2 cups flour
1 pkt yeast 

  • Melt the butter with water and milk, than leave to cool. 
  • Add vanilla and the egg.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients and make a a dough (can add more milk if its too stiff).
  • Leave to raise.
  • Than divide into 2 and roll both separately into oblong rotis (circles).


1 cup brown sugar 
5 Tb cinnamon powder 
1/2 cup butter 

  • Mix well together.
  • Spread 1/2 the mixture on one roti with your fingers, can sprinkle pecan nuts (if desired), and than roll into a swiss roll.
  • Repeat with the other rolled out dough as well. 
  • Cut about 2 fingers sizes and place flat down into muffin tins (or a flat baking dish), leave to raise. 
  • Bake at 180 degrees for about 15 - 20 minutes.
  • Must be baked till light brown, and they should be soft. 


1/2 cup butter or margarine  
1 + 1/3 cup icing sugar 
1/2 cup plain cream cheese

  • Beat the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
  • Than add the cream cheese and beat some more.
  • Drop spoonfuls on the hot cinnabons, can sprinkle more pecan nuts if desired.
