Yesterday I ended up with a bunch of dough with which I didn’t know what to do. Then it hit me I could make cinnamon rolls and see what’s all the fuss about. I gotta say, a delicious comfort food, perfect for an old boring Thursday.


  • 0,5 kilo of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1,5 satchel of dry yeast
  • 1 cup of warm milk
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 100 g of butter
  • 75 g of brown sugar
  • 1 vanilla sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of ground star anise


  • Warm up one cup of milk, add yeast and 1 tablespoon of sugar and let it rise. Meanwhile mix flour with salt. Add the yeast mixture, egg and 30 g of melted butter and mix until you get a light, fluffy dough. Cover with a damp cloth and let it proof for 90 minutes.
  • After 90 minutes, punch the air out and roll out until 1 cm thick.
  • Spread over the dough the rest of the butter, sprinkle with a mixture of sugar and spices and roll up into a cigar. Cut into little rolls.
  • Put the rolls on an oiled tray and cover with a damp cloth, and leave for another 45 minutes. Before baking, put a piece of butter on top of each roll.
  • Put into a preheat oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Cool them a bit and then decorate with frosting, or better yet ice cream.
