These are the ultimate best homemade cinnamon rolls you ever tried. They are simple to make and so soft, tasty, and wholesome. These cinnamon rolls are perfect for breakfast but also as a snack during the day. This recipe is perfect for those who are making cinnamon rolls for the first time but also for those who just want a quick and simple cinnamon rolls recipe they can make. 

If you are looking for some things to do to kill boredom then put your apron on and get ready to bake. I am sure that you have all of the ingredients in your pantry right now. I personally always choose recipes that don't require me to go shopping and there are no exotic ingredients needed for these cinnamon rolls. I know that some people don't like cinnamon. If you are one of them then simply replace cinnamon with cacao and you'll have delicious cacao rolls. 

Quick & Easy Homemade Cinnamon Rolls


  • 500g flour
  • 1 bag of dry yeast
  • 1 egg 
  • 70 g sugar
  • 1.5 dl milk 
  • 100 g butter 
  • 0.5 dl water 


  • 100 g melted butter 
  • cinnamon 
  • sugar 


  1. Start by stimulating the yeast: Put it in a small bowl with lukewarm water. Stir thoroughly, then let sit for 5 minutes. You'll know that your yeast is ready when you see the bubbles.
  2. Add all ingredients to a bowl. You can either knead the dough by hand or use a stand mixer if you have one. I knead the dough by hand. 
  3. When all the ingredients are combined and you got a cohesive dough put a kitchen towel over the bowl and let it sit somewhere warm until doubled in size.
  4.  Sprinkle flour on your surface and roll the dough in a rectangle shape. It doesn't need to be perfect. Spread melted butter over the dough and add cinnamon and sugar. I don't have a specific measure for cinnamon sugar. This depends on your taste. 
  5. Fold the edges at the shorter side and start rolling the dough from the wide side. I use my index and middle finger as a measure of where to cut. This depends on how big or small you want your cinnamon rolls to be. 
  6. Preheat the oven to 180 °C. 
  7. Press cinnamon rolls down with your fingers and add melted butter on top of them. Bake them for around 15 minutes.
