Easy Sweet Roll Recipe ingredients

My favorite bread recipe ingredients

  • 1 1/4 Cups MILK
  • 2 Tablespoons BUTTER
  • 2 teaspoons SUGAR
  • 1 teaspoon SALT
  • 3 Cups BREAD FLOUR
  • 2 3/4 teaspoons ACTIVE DRY YEAST

Sprinkle Ingredients

  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon powder

Steps in making my easy peasy sweet roll recipe

Step 1

Mix together the dough ingredients and knead for 10+ minutes. (This is where kids come in really handy if you don’t already have a KitchenAid stand mixer.) Let rise for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Knead again for at least 5 minutes. Let rise for another 15 minutes.

Step 3

Roll out dough until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Spread melted butter evenly across the dough.

Step 4

Sprinkle with about a cup of brown sugar, about a 1/2 cup of sugar, and cinnamon to preference.

Step 5

Starting at one end, roll the dough jellyroll-style until it is a long cylinder.

Step 6

Cut into 2-inch segments and place in a greased pan.

Step 7

Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown – my oven usually takes about 25 minutes.
