How many of you find yourself drooling at BuzzFeed’s cooking channel Tasty videos, especially when it’s midnight and you are in bed scrolling Facebook newsfeed or during an exam revision. There’s definitely something addicting to it. Maybe because it looks that easy to make and yet tasty. But is it just me? that the want-to-try-this-tasty-recipe list piles up but ended up searching for other recipes instead? One evening, I saw Tasty uploaded a video on YouTube comparing store bought’s canned and Cinnabon’s cinnamon rolls with their own made cinnamon rolls.

At first, I watched the video just because I LOVE cinnamon rolls and I think it should be interesting. It didn’t make me go into the kitchen and make some until I had a huge crave for it one day! And cravings over beat lazziness! YAY! So, I followed Tasty’s own homemade cinnamon rolls recipe and I would like to share how it turned out. Click here to watch: Tasty’s Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
The only I step did not follow was I did not hand knead the dough as my mom insisted to use Thermomix to make it. I will definitely try using my hands next time! Also, my mom does not fancy cream cheese frosting so I made a simple sugar glaze (icing sugar and milk).
I was so happy with the end product and my parents loved it as well. This is definitely a good recipe.
- Do be very generous with the ground cinnamon. It also depends on its flavour. Mine is quite mild so I used more that 2 tablespoons.
- Try to roll the dough as even as possible to achieve similar size for each roll.
- Use a thread or an unscented dental floss for easier and cleaner cutting.
- Refrigerate and reheat using microwave… only if there are leftovers.
