Cinnamon Bread or Rolls




45 min

Cinnamon Bread and Rolls are so good! They are even better when they are homemade. The base bread recipe is the same as the Light and Fluffy Homemade Bread, and it can turn into many different things.

The Bread

  • 2/3 Cup ‏Oil
  • 2/3 Cup ‏Honey
  • 5 Cups ‏HOT Water
  • 2 Tbls ‏Dry Yeast (2 Packets)
  • About 10 Cups ‏Flour
  • 2 Tbls ‏Salt


  1. Combine the first 4 ingredients in order listed – sprinkling the yeast on top of the water.
  2.   Allow to sit – covered for a few minutes.
  3. Add next 3 ingredients (about 5 cups flour, dough enhancer, and salt on top of the flour), and mix together well.  In a Bosch allow to mix for 3-4 minutes.  If by hand and a spoon, mix until it has a nice gluten stickyness about it (8-10 minutes).  .  If using whole wheat flour, allow to sit for several minutes before adding any additional flour.
  4. Slowly add more flour ½  cup at a time, mixing well between each addition.  Total flour should be approximately 10 cups if using white flour, and less if using some or all whole wheat flour.  The appropriate consistency will be when the dough “cleans the sides” of the bowl, has an elastic consistency, and a silky appearance.
  5. Use Crisco on your hands, and your working surface, lightly sprinkle about a half cup flour over working surface before dumping out.
  6. Divide dough into fourth, each fourth will become a pan of cinnamon rolls or a loaf of bread
  7. Roll out first set until about 1/2 inch thick.

Now comes the filling, it’s super easy, and super yummy.

The Bread

  • 2/3 Cup ‏Oil
  • 2/3 Cup ‏Honey
  • 5 Cups ‏HOT Water
  • 2 Tbls ‏Dry Yeast (2 Packets)
  • About 10 Cups ‏Flour
  • 2 Tbls ‏Salt

Filling it up:

  1. First spread a thin layer of apple sauce over your dough. It doesn’t need to be much, just enough for the Brown Sugar and cinnamon to stick. Otherwise it will make a mess all over (Don’t worry, you will still have enough filling)
  2. Sprinkle a generous layer of Brown Sugar over the Applesauce
  3. Sprinkle a generous layer of Cinnamon over the Brown Sugar
  4. Roll up.
  5. For Cinnamon Rolls, cut with a string or unflavored dental floss and place on greased cookie sheet and press flat with palm of hand.
  6. For Cinnamon Bread, Place roll in greased bread pan.
  7. Cover with cloth to keep warm.
  8. Let Rise until Doubled
  9. Bake at 350˚
    • Cinnamon Rolls for 10-12 minutes
    • Cinnamon Bread for about 30 Minutes.

The Glaze

  • 2 Cups ‏Powdered Sugar
  • 3-4 Tbls ‏Hot Water
  • 1 tsp ‏Butter

Beat with a mixer until the right consistency and frost while hot.
