These Cinnamon Rolls are light and egg-free but taste just like the Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, and it is time for you to taste these astonishing, light, and heavenly cinnamon rolls topped with vanilla glaze.

  • In a mixer bowl pour milk, add sugar, butter, and instant yeast.
  • Now, lock the hook knob and start the mixer at speed 2 first and mix wet ingredients well,
  • Now add bread flour, salt, and milk powder and lock the hook knob and start the mixer at speed 2 first keep alternating between speed 2 and speed 4 as the dough starts forming.
  • Stop the mixer and scrape the dry flour from the sides of the bowl using a spatula.
  • Start the mixer and keep mixing on low speed until dough forms.
  • The dough should form into a ball and be slightly sticky.

To Prepare the Sugar Cinnamon Spread:

To Proof the Dough in the Instant Pot:

  • Spray some oil on the instant pot inner pan.
  • Transfer the dough to the Instant Pot and cover the pot with the glass lid or with any plate that fits the pot(even you can use the instant pot's main lid too). 
  • Proof the dough using the yogurt function of the Instant Pot. 
  • Set the time for 1 hour. 
  • The dough is ready when it rises to double its volume.
  • You can apply some oil on the surface of the dough to avoid drying out of the dough.
  • Once the dough doubled in size, punch down and take out the dough and knead for one minute.

To proof the dough without instant pot:

  • Cover the dough with the plastic wrap and rest the dough in a bowl.
  • Allow dough to rise for 2 to 2 ½ hours, or until doubled in size.

To Roll and Shape the Dough:

  • Sprinkle some flour on the floor and transfer the dough.
  • Roll out the dough into a rectangle. 
  • Spread softened butter over the rolled dough.
  • Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mixture over the buttered dough, then press the brown sugar mixture into the butter.
  • Now, tightly roll the dough up, and place seam side down making sure to seal the edges of the dough.
  • Cut off about an inch off the ends of the dough and then cut into 1-inch sections with a knife. 
  • Place cinnamon rolls in a parchment paper-lined 9x9 inch baking pan(so the fillings don’t end up leaking out.) 
  • Cover with a towel and let it rise again for 30-45 minutes or double in size.

To Bake the Cinnamon Rolls in the Oven:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Remove the towel and bake cinnamon rolls for 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven or until just slightly golden brown on the edges. 
  • Allow them to cool for 10-15 minutes before frosting. 

To Make the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar.
  • Whisk until smooth and fluffy. 
  • Spread the cream cheese frosting over the cinnamon rolls and serve immediately. Enjoy!!!

To Air Fryer the Cinnamon Rolls:

  • Preheat Air Fryer 350 F for 3 Minutes. 
  • Place the proofed cinnamon roll’s baking pan in the air fryer.
  • Air Fry for 8 minutes.
  • Flip the rolls after 4 minutes.
  • Once done, take the baking pan out and allow them to cool completely before frosting.
  • Spread the cream cheese frosting over the cinnamon rolls and serve immediately. Enjoy!!!

How to Store the Cinnamon Rolls:

  • Transfer the cinnamon rolls into a plastic bag, and it will be good to eat for up to 3-4 days, though it tastes best when eaten the day baked. 
  • Gently warm in the oven before serving.
  • Baked rolls can be frozen up to 2-3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and warm up before enjoying.

What if you don't have a Stand Mixer? 

      No mixer, no problem. All you have to do is knead everything by hand. After mixing all the ingredients, transfer the dough to a clean work surface and knead by hand until all the flour is incorporated and you end up with a dough that is soft to touch.

Tips to Make Cinnamon Rolls:

  • If the dough is too sticky, which means it's sticking to the bottom of the mixer, then add in 2 tablespoons more bread flour.
  • If using Air Fryer, then watch and adjust the timing for your air fryer as needed.
  • Make sure the milk used to mix the yeast is warm or lukewarm, but not boiling hot. Hot milk will kill the yeast. 
  • You may require less or more flour and water accordingly to get the soft dough.
  • If you substitute all-purpose flour for bread flour, the result will not be the same as bread flour rolls. Bread flour contains a higher amount of protein which helps to create the bread roll's structure.
  • You can make dinner rolls, bread loaf or pizza too with this dough.
  • You can use 100% whole wheat flour instead of using all-purpose flour or bread flour. 
  • Use a good quality yeast; it gives fluffiness and softness to bread.
  • You can serve cinnamon rolls with vanilla icing or salted caramel, or coffee icing.
  • You can use active dry yeast too, but it has a moderate rate of rising and instant dry yeast has a faster rate of rising.
  • If needed, you can substitute non-dairy milk.
