Butter, to spread

For the stuffing:

  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • Salt, a little to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For Topping:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 4- 1 cups packed light-brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves (I use almonds)

How to make:


  1. In a large container, mix instant yeast and warm water
  2. Add milk, sugar, butter, salt, eggs, and 2 cups flour
  3. Stir until well blended
  4. Add 2 cups flour again
  5. Knead until the is really smooth
  6. Round the dough
  7. Grease a container with a little butter, put the dough into it
  8. Rotate the dough until the entire surface is swept by butter
  9. Cover the container with a damp cloth
  10. Leave in a warm area until the dough expands 2x, or for about 1 1/2 hours
  11. Hit the dough until it is back to being flat
  12. Let it fluff again, about 1 hour.

For the topping:

  1. Grease a muffin tin with butter
  2. Over medium heat, melt butter, add brown sugar, corn syrup, and pecan halves (almonds). Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Take care not to boil the solution (later will crystallize)
  4. Enter the topping ingredients into muffin mold base
  5. Set aside

For the stuffing:

  1. Within the container, mix brown sugar and cinnamon, set aside
  2. Sprinkle work surface with a little flour, then mill until the dough measures 12 x 12-inch
  3. Brush the surface of the bread with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture
  4. Roll up bread elliptically
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut the bread into 12 slices
  6. Insert bread into the muffin tins
  7. Allow 40 minutes to inflate.


  1. Preheat the oven with a temperature of 350 F
  2. Bake the bread until cooked, about 30 to 35 minutes
  3. Remove it from the oven, allow some time to cool
  4. Invert muffin tins and serve the bread on a serving plate
  5. Enjoy the warmth of the bread with the fragrance of cinnamon and melted topping !!!


  • For the mold I use aluminum foil cups.
  • The Baking time, I just need 25 minutes.
  • The process, I try to use is the overnight way: after the last step, cover the bread dough tightly with aluminum foil, store in refrigerator.
  • The next morning, just before baking, remove the dough about 20 minutes before and then bake.

You really can enjoy a breakfast of cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven !!
