cinnamon rolls

  • 1 package vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 250 ml milk for the instant pudding
  • 3 tbsp sugar for the instant pudding
  • 60 g butter
  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 400 g flour

cinnamon filling

  • 100 g butter melted
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 2 tbps cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp mixed spice

cream cheese frosting

  • 250 g cream cheese
  • 250 g icing sugar to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract to taste


  • Prepare the pudding mix according to the instructions and let cool slightly.
  • Cut butter in cubes and put on top of the pudding. As soon as the butter is melted mix in sugar and the egg.
  • Add the yeast, salt and some flour. Mix until well combined.
  • Add the rest of the flour and mix into a smooth dough.
  • Let rise until doubled in size. About 30 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (390°F).
  • For the filling, melt the butter in a small saucepan, then add the sugar and spices.
  • Roll out to dough into a rectangle. The dough should be about 0,5-1 cm thick. Evenly spread the butter mixture on the dough.
  • Roll up the dough from the wide side. Cut about 4-5 cm wide pieces and place them on a baking tray. Leave about one cm between the individual rolls for them to rise.
  • Bake for 20 min. Cover with foil if the cinnamon rolls get too dark.

While the cinnamon rolls cool down a little prepare the frosting:

  • In a small bowl mix the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add just as much sugar to taste as sweet as you want your frosting to be.
  • Frost the cinnamon rolls and serve while they are still warm!
