When I was in US I watched a cinnamon roll commercial on tv and thought about giving it a try sometime. As time passed so did the idea of making them at home.
After 5 years ,I watched a show on tv about best deserts place in US and what did I see?? “Cinnamon Rolls”
This time I did make them at home . Happen to find a very simple recipe on internet through Prema’s Culinary but modified it according to my taste

1 and 1/2 tbsp Sugar
3/4 cup Luke warm Milk
Oil 1 tsp
2 tsp ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground Nutmeg
1/4 cup packed Brown Sugar
1 tbsp softened butter for brushing
How I made it:
1.Warm the milk, add the yeast , 1/2 tsp sugar and set aside for 5 minutes.
2. Mix the flour,melted butter,rest of sugar and then the yeast mixture
3. Add extra milk if required and knead into a soft dough ,apply oil and keep it in warm place.
4. Let it sit for 2 to 3 hrs to rise.
5. AFter 3 hours knead the dough and spread into a 12 x 12 square
6.Spread the softened butter and sprinkle ( cinnamon+brown sugar mix) over it .
7.Roll the dough tightly into a cylindrical shape and cut into equal parts and keep them in a baking tray or a bowl
7.Bake in a preheated oven at 200 C for 20 minutes
I made a simple vanilla glaze.

Mix all together and pour on cold cinnamon rolls 🙂
