“Good things happen when there are cinnamon rolls involved!” – Says ME!
Hello and welcome to the pretty wide world of cinnamon rolls love!
Say hello to fluffy skillet cinnamon rolls, packed with a buttery cinnamon brown sugar filling and smeared with cream cheese glaze that drips of your roll with every bite you take! They melt in your mouth while they’re still warm. Yumm!!
I was craving the other day, as the weather is getting chilly here, some hot cinnamon rolls drizzled with a creamy frosting, to indulge in with my morning coffee on a Saturday morning. I was wondering why people don’t make them that often. Then it hit me. It’s because they’re complicated, time consuming and done with difficult methods.
Well, not anymore my friends! This recipe is easy, foolproof, and takes no time to be prepared! The only bigger amount of time is consumed for waiting for the dough to rise. You can even prepare your dough and refrigerate it overnight to enjoy them warm on a Sunday morning (check tips & tricks below the photo)! DAA Bum! All problems are solved! When you see the results and these fluffy cinnamon rolls, you’ll thank me for introducing you to the recipe.
The trick to keeping the cinnamon rolls soft and fluffy is bread flour. Ya! The one and only. All purpose flour still works, but they just aren’t as amazing and tender.
- Do your best to use bread flour instead of all-purpose flour to get them as fluffy as a cloud!
- When spreading the “goods” on the dough, make sure to go crazy, with the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and walnuts!
- OVERNIGHT INSTRUCTIONS: You can refrigerate the rolls overnight and bake in the morning. Put the rolls in the pans and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, pull the rolls out and let them come to room temperature and rise a little.
- FREEZER INSTRUCTIONS: The cinnamon rolls also freeze well. Either freeze all of the rolls in the same pan or freeze each rolls separately then put them all in one plastic bag. When you’re ready to bake, place them in a lightly greased pan and allow them to come to room temperature before baking.
The result is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I was mesmerized when I got them out of the oven! The rolls are soft, fluffy, cinnamon-y and just satisfying!
