Cinnamon Rolls with Walnuts Very First Cinnamon Rolls Success


  • Cinnamon Rolls Recipe


  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 package fast rise yeast
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp hot water


  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • cinnamon it is up to you how much
  • walnut optional


First Steps:

  • Prepare all the ingredients.
  • Prepare a medium bowl brushed with butter or cooking oil.


  • Preheat oven int its lowest setting, for my oven it is 125 F for 2 minutes then turn it off . I use this as the warm place where I can keep rise my dough for two hours. I call it "kinda hot" place for my dough to rise.
  • Mix ingredients 1 to 4 using a wire whisk in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Form a hole in the middle.Set aside
  • Beat egg in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Get a sauce pan and place in the milk and butter in a low heat. Let the butter melt. Make sure that this mixture is warm but not too hot because it will kill the yeast when you add this to the flour mixture. Add in beaten egg, vanilla extract then remove from heat and pour into the well in the flour mixture.
  • Mix the dough. Remove the dough from the bowl and place into a floured surface. Knead until smooth then put it in the bowl you prepared which brushed with oil. Cover and put into a warm place or in the oven that was " kinda" hot. Let the dough rise for 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours, punch the dough and lay it in the floured surface.This will be gooey so add a little flour at a time to make the dough workable.If you add too much, the rolls will become hard.So be careful. Roll into rectangle. When it is flat, add in the melted butter and spread throughout the dough, then the brown sugar and cinnamon and walnut.
  • Roll into a log and cut into 2 inch thick.
  • Arrange in the rectangular baking pan. Cover it .And put it back into the "kinda" hot oven for 45 minutes
  • When done, preheat oven to 375 F then bake the bread for 25 minutes or when you tap bread it will sound hollow.
  • Add the topping on top.
  • Direction for the Glaze
  • Simply mix sugar and warm water
