  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon (6 grams) Yeast
  • 1 cup (244 ml ) milk
  • 6 tablespoons (88.72 grams ) unsalted butter
  • 5-6 tablespoons (73.93 grams ) sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (7.5 grams ) salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 1/2 -3 3/4 cups (437.50 - 468.75 ) All purpose flour
  • butter unsalted , for brushing over the finished rolls

Cinnamon Honey Butter

  • 2 ounce (56.7 grams ) butter , unsalted and softened
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoon ( 14.79 grams) powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoon ( 29.57 ml honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ( 3 grams ) or more cinnamon spice


  • In a standing mixer combine lukewarm water and yeast. Let it sit until dissolve for about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile in a microwave safe medium bowl, combine milk, with the butter pieces, sugar, salt and microwave for about a minute. Stir until everything is melted.
  • Dump everything into the yeast mixture.
  • Whisk an egg into the the mixture .
  • If the mixture is too hot let it cool to a warm mixture to prevent eggs from curdling
  • Mix for 2 minutes at medium speed. Add about 3 ½ cups of flour and continue mixing dough.
  • Add in enough additional flour (if needed) to make soft dough. Err on the side  of  caution less flour , rather than more. 
  • Turn dough on lightly floured surface and knead for 3-4 minutes or more if you want airy bread.
  • Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the dough Cover loosely with a clean cloth and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1 to 2 hours or until doubled.
  • Punch the dough down.
  • Roll dough into a rectangle, about 1” thickness. Use any sharp object like knife or pizza cutter to cut dough into squares.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F°.
  • Spray cookie sheet pan with oil or butter , then place rolls on oiled pan about ½ – 1” apart. Cover lightly with kitchen towel and let rise for about 30 minutes or until dough is puffy.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with remaining melted butter.
  • Remove from the baking pan and let it cool. I like to eat mine when it is still warm.

Cinnamon Honey Butter

  • Combine butter, confectioners’ sugar, honey, and cinnamon, in a small bowl. Then mix with a mixer or by hand until blended. Serve with rolls or refrigerate until ready to use.


  • To proof the yeast, the water temperature should be lukewarm about 110°F – 115°F. Or check the temperature by running the water over your wrist. It should feel a little warmer than your body temperature.
  • No need to proof if you’re using instant yeast. You can mix it directly to the dry ingredients. Don’t let the salt get in contact with the yeast coz’ the salt will kill it.
  • To substitute active dry yeast with instant yeast, just remember this ratio: 1 teaspoon active dry yeast = 3/4 teaspoon instant yeast.
  • Don’t forget to scald the milk. This is essential to make our dough rise nicely, airy, and fluffy.
  • You can substitute all-purpose flour with bread flour using a 1:1 ratio.
  • Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
