Makes 8 cinnamon rolls



  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for the counter
  • 2 TBSP white granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 6 TBSP salted butter, melted and divided

Cinnamon Filling:

  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP unsalted butter, melted


  • 3 TBSP milk
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a 9 inch round cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. To make the filling, combine together the brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated white sugar, cinnamon, salt, and the 1 Tablespoon melted butter until the mixture resembles wet sand. Set aside.
  3. To make the dough, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour; 2 Tablespoons white granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the buttermilk and 2 Tablespoons of the melted butter together. Stir the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture with a until absorbed, about 30 seconds. The dough will be very sticky.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured counter and knead until smooth with floured hands for about 1 minute. Press the dough out into a 9 by 12 inch rectangle using your hands.
  5. Brush the dough with 2 TBSP melted butter. Sprinkle the dough evenly with the filling, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Loosen the dough from the counter using a bench scraper or a metal spatula.
  6. Starting at a long side, roll the dough, pressing lightly, to form a tight log. Pinch the seam to seal. Slice the dough into 8 even pieces. Place the slices in the greased pan.
  7. Brush with the remaining 2 TBSP melted butter. Bake until the edges are golden brown, 20-25 minutes.
  8. While the rolls bake, prepare the icing. Combine the milk and powdered sugar in a small bowl until smooth.  Add more milk or powdered sugar to achieve desired consistency. 
  9. Allow the rolls to cool for 15 minutes, then drizzle with icing. Serve warm.
