One hundred cinnamon rolls

We had a cinnamon roll party the other day and I was asked to publish the recipe. Without the permission from my sister, here it is – translated into English. 🙂


Make sure you have these ingredients

The Dough

  • 1 liter milk
  • 2 packages of yeast (one package size is roughly the size of two matchboxes)
  • 4 dl of sugar
  • 250 g margarine
  • salt
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 2 kg flour

The Filling

  • 250 g margarine
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • sugar
  • coarse sugar
  • egg

Making of the Dough

Mix the sugar, yeast, salt and cardamom

Add lukewarm milk

Add the flour while mixing

Melt all 500 g of the margarine

Add half (250 g) of the margarine

Mix the dough (might be needed to add some flour if the dough is too viscous)

Let the dough rise for 45 mins.

Making of the Filling

Whisk the rest of the now lukewarm margarine while adding sugar and cinnamon until the mixture tastes like cinnamon.

The rest

Lay the dough on the table and roll it into a square.before

Spread the filling evenly on the rectangular-shaped dough.

Slice and roll the dough. Or if you feel rebellious, you can opt to roll and slice.

Lay the cinnamon rolls on the baking tray.

Top the rolls with egg and sugar.

Bake in 225 C.

Enjoy the hot and fresh cinnamon rolls with a glass of cold milk to maximise the pleasure. This recipe should produce approx. 100 rolls, so be prepared to bake several ovenfuls and invite many friends.

Word of warning!

If you try to cram too many rolls on one tray, it will be ugly (but edible) mess.

too many rolls
