  • Rolls:
  • 2 tbsp warm water
  • 3 tbsp soft butter
  • 5 tbsp instant vanilla or banana pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups + 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp instant or active dry yeast
  • Filling:
  • 1/2 a cup brown sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 2 or 3 tbsp melted butter
  • Frosting :
  • cheese frosting, caramel , toffee, icing sugar ... as u like :-)


    1. In a large bowl , lightely beat the egg . heat the milk with butter until melting . In the same time , dissolve yeast with sugar in warm water .
    2. Pour the milk in the large bowl and whisk . Add the yeast and beat . Add salt , vanilla pudding ... see how it comes yellow and wonderfull :-)
    3. Now add the flour . Once the dry and wet ingredients are combined, turn off the machine, throw a towel over it and let the dough rest for 15 minutes before kneading. It will be quite sticky now.
    4. That gives you time to finely chop the walnuts
    5. Combine 1/2 a cup brown sugar with two tsp ground cinnamon.
    6. Time to knead the dough : Knead it for 10 minutes cycle. Slowly the dough started to ball up. If your still looks sticky in the last, say, 2 minutes add some flour one tbsp at a time. Let the dough rise for about an hour , punch it down and then continue with the steps !
    7. Transfer the dough to a floured counter or cutting board. Start rolling out. Form a rectangle. lightly brush it with melted butter.
    8. Sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top, followed by the cinnamon sugar. Roll it up and press the seams!
    9. Now slice it. I turned it into 15 rolls. You can make thicker slices as well! Transfer the slices to the battered baking tray. Give them a little room to rise, though. Place a towel over the tray and let them rise for an hour and a half. At this point you can refrigerate the dough for anywhere from 2 to 24 hours. If overnight, the next morning remove the rolls from the refrigerator, take off the plastic wrap, and let stand at room temperature for 30 minute before baking.
    10. Brush the top with some milk .. it will gives them a very nice color and will be crispy . Bake them in a preheated oven at 180C for 15 to 20 minutes. I like them brown and crispy so I gave them the full 20 minutes , if you want them lighter and fluffied you should probably stick to 15 mins. Drizzle the frosting on top while they are still warm.

Do not agree with the custard idea. The best cinnamon rolls I've ever had was when I lived in Denmark for 4 years.

Very tasty rolls! I liked the idea of adding some pudding powder to dough. Instead of butter, I filled them with a thin layer of custard, then sprinkled to cinammon and suger (skipped walnuts). They were crispy outside and lovely and soft inside, I'll definitely bake them again!
