For the Filling:

  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1.76 oz (50g) unsalted butter

For the Dough:

  • 6.76 fl oz (200ml) milk
  • 5.29 oz (150g) unsalted butter
  • 2.47 oz (70g) sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 0.35 oz (10g) dry yeast
  • 14.11 oz (400g) all-purpose flour


  1. Prepare the Dough: Heat the milk in a saucepan until it reaches 33–35°C. Melt the butter and let it cool. Combine with the warm milk, sugar, and vanilla sugar, stirring well with a spatula.
  2. Mix the Yeast and Flour: Blend the dry yeast with 10.58 oz (300g) of flour and gradually incorporate into the milk mixture. Add the remaining flour as needed and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  3. Let the Dough Rise: Cover the dough with a clean towel and place in a warm area to rise for about an hour.
  4. Roll Out the Dough: Roll the dough into a rectangular shape, spread melted butter over it, and sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly, leaving a small edge clear.
  5. Roll Up the Dough: Tightly roll up the dough into a log and cut into 12 even pieces. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Let the Rolls Rise Again: Cover with a towel and allow to rise for 20 more minutes in a warm place.
  7. Bake the Rolls: Preheat the oven to 392°F (200°C) and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Optionally, drizzle with melted honey or a spread of unsalted cottage cheese mixed with powdered sugar before serving.

Serve: Enjoy these luscious cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven, perfect for a Nordic Diet Meal Planning breakfast or a comforting snack.
