I also wanted to add ‘overnight’ right there in the title but I didn’t want to have a longer title! 😉
Welcome to the fourth and final installment to my lovely and exceptionally delicious cinnamon roll collection 🙂 the grande finale, most epic showdown. We’re going out with a big bang, making sure to leave everyone longing for more and make every other cinnamon roll question their place inside your hearts <3
Todays recipe is everything you’ve ever wanted in a cinnamon roll and more!
I’ve already shared my other 3 favourite cinnamon rolls; these Cinnabon Style copycats, this quick version of those Cinnabons and these soft and fluffy cinnamon rolls and todays recipe is sure to become a big favourite with you guys too!
As I said earlier, this is an overnight recipe which means you’ll have to let the rolls rise slowly in the fridge. This extra step boosts both the flavour and texture of the rolls taking them way over the top. The reason these rolls are so special is because of the ingredients used in the dough. Buttermilk, eggs and butter. Extra rich. Extra delicious 🙂
What makes these rolls different
- Buttermilk – rich texture & flavour
- Eggs – richness & binds the dough together (you can use 4 yolks in place of 2 whole eggs for an even more tender roll)
- Softened butter – gives that melt-in-your-mouth feel
It’s a pretty straight forward recipe; make the dough, rise, punch down and roll out, fill, roll and cut into pieces. Here is where you pop them in the fridge and allow them to rise. Next morning take them out of the fridge and set at room temperature for about an hour then bake away!
Frost these guys as soon as they’re out of the oven and devour 🙂 please make sure to eat them warm! Seriously there’s no comparison to warm and cold cinnamon rolls even if that means warming them in the microwave for a few seconds.
Try not to substitute anything but if you can’t find buttermilk then you can use either the milk/vinegar substitution or equal parts yoghurt and milk. Both work fine.
I like to use a mixture of brown and white sugar, best of both worlds right! but you can adjust as you please. Try and use the best quality cinnamon as possible because as I’ve said before, it IS the star of the show!

3 3/4 cups + 4 1/2 cups (450 – 560gms) all purpose flour
does that mean a total of 8 1/4 cups or does that mean from 3 3/4cups to 4 1/2cups?
Hi Sarah, sorry for the confusion. It is altogether up to 4 1/2 cups of flour. As written in step 3 start with 3 3/4 and add as much as you need extra up to 4 1/2 👍🏻 thank you for your lovely comment 🌺
