You are going to love this recipe for 90 minute cinnamon rolls. It’s great for any time of year but would be great to make for mom for mother’s day. This rolls are also tasty the next day so you can make them the day before too. However, you can bake them in the morning too. I have included instructions on how to do so in the recipe notes.
I must say that I love the texture of a good dough and these 90 minute cinnamon rolls have just that. The dough is easy to work with and has an amazing tender texture when they are baked! There is nothing more frustrating than working with a soft and sticky dough. You will find this dough rolls and shapes extremely well. Another thing that makes this dough so amazing is you use brown sugar instead of white flour. It’s a small change but makes these rolls taste amazing.
There are a few key things to making this cinnamon rolls and make them taste amazing and come together in 90 minutes.
First key is to letting the rolls raise in a warm oven. You preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Then when the rolls are ready to rise, you turn the oven off and place the pan of cinnamon rolls in the oven. It will only take them 20 minutes to rise.
Another key is to place them in the oven while it preheats to 375 when it’s time to cook them. They continue to rise as the oven preheats. Then they cook once it reaches full temp.
Now these rolls also incorporate a trend that has been going crazy on Tik Tok. Once these rolls have raised. You pour 1/2 cup of cream over them before baking them. This makes them soft with a golden brown top. It also makes the filling nice and gooey.
Another trick when shaping the cinnamon rolls is to roll the dough out on a surface that has been sprayed with non-stick dough. This keeps the dough from sticking to the counter and the need to add extra flour to the dough. Extra flour can cause your dough to be tough and not tender.
The great thing about these rolls is they tastes great the second day.
I just microwave them for 10-15 seconds to warm them back up. However, you can also make these into overnight cinnamon rolls. Just place them in the fridge before they raise. Then in the morning, you may be able to take them straight from the fridge to the oven. If not, they just need a little time on the counter before baking them. I have included these instructions in the notes in the recipe for you.
