How to Make this Easy Cinnamon Roll Recipe is easy, and it’s perfect for the holiday’s. It’s great for a holiday morning breakfast or better yet, gift giving.  I haven’t met anyone yet that doesn’t adore homemade cinnamon rolls!  One of the wonderful things about this recipe is that you only have to let the dough rise once.  By using PAM® Baking spray, you won’t have to worry about your rolls sticking to the pan.  The PAM® Baking spray combines the no-stick power of PAM® with real flour.  The spray on formula makes it possible to hit every inch of your pan.  {{fabulous}}

Cinnamon Rolls

So, this holiday season, I’ve got a secret weapon, and it’s name is PAM®.  For real.  Nothing is more frustrating than having holiday baking disasters just because the item stuck to the pan.

I have these beautiful holiday bundt pans that are almost impossible to get perfect results with because they are too hard to grease properly.  The point of using the bundt pans is to create cakes that have gorgeous scroll work on them, but they almost never work.  Now they do.   With PAM®.  This holiday season I can wow my friends and neighbors with baked goods that look amazing, and since that sort of thing makes me feel good {I’m vain that way}, it’s a big deal.  HUGE.  Considering PAM® is totally affordable, and has 99% Less Residue than other brands, I can confidently bake delicious food this holiday season….with success the first time around!

What I Love About PAM® Cooking Sprays

  • They really work!!!
  • The Original, Butter and Baking PAM® Cooking Sprays leave up to 99 percent less residue buildup than other cooking sprays  or margarine that you might use.  {{wow}}
  • PAM has seven specifically formulated non-stick cooking sprays!
  • Perhaps best of all, the improved formula has zero calories per serving.

Now, back to those Cinnamon Rolls…..

Cinnamon Roll Ingredients

Cinnamon Roll Ingredients

  • 7-1/2 cups flour
  • 4-1/2 tsp yeast
  • 3/4 cup sugar, white
  • 1-2/3 cup water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • cinnamon
  • brown sugar, approx 1-2 cups
  • PAM® Baking Spray

Directions {step-by-step}

Step 1

Step 1:  Dissolve yeast in warm water.  Approximately 15 minutes.

Step 2

Step 2:  After the yeast dissolves add the sugar.  (You don’t need to stir it just pour it in.)  Let it sit until it bubbles.

Step 3:  In mixer, add the yeast and sugar mixture and the remainder of the ingredients, gradually.  Tip: incorporate some of the flour before adding the melted butter so that it doesn’t cook the eggs.

Let dough rise

Step 4:  At this point you could roll the dough out into a rectangle, spread with softened butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon or you could let it rise for 1 hour.  Tip: letting it rise first makes a softer dough.

Sprinkle with Brown Sugar

Step 5:  If you let the dough rise, knock it down and roll out into a rectangular shape.  Brush/spread with softened butter, sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon.


Step 6:  Roll into a jelly roll and cut into 1″ slices.

Spray with Pam

Step 7:  Spray your pans generously with Pam Baking spray.

Cinnamon Rolls

Step 8:  Place slices onto pans, cover with a towel and let rise twice their size.  Make sure to leave at least a 1″ space between rolls so that they can rise.  Approximately 1 hour.

Bake Cinnamon Roll

Step 9:  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Until lightly golden brown on top.


Step 10:  While the cinnamon rolls bake, make frosting.

Frosting Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 7 tbls. butter, softened
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Mix the above ingredients together in no particular order and frost cinnamon rolls.

    YUM! This recipe looks alot easier than some I’ve seen for cinnamon rolls lol..I’ve always wanted to try making them from scratch!!

    My holiday baking tip is to make dough ahead of time such as cookie dough, and freeze it to save tons of time! You can also bake cakes & freeze them(without the icing of course lol) and then thaw them and frost them!

    Thanks for the chance to win too!!

    I set a couple of days aside, so I get all my baking done then. I am not having to do it, when everyone comes over.

    amy pugmire says

    Make sure you have all the ingredients and have enough of them. I can’t tell you how many times I have gone to make pies or a holiday dessert and ran out of something.

  4. 5


    Make sure you have your measuring implements correctly assembled, especially if you have a terrible cold right before the holidays but you’re still baking anyway – I was sicker than a dog the day before Thanksgiving one year, but was determined to make the pumpkin pies I was to bring to my family’s Thanksgiving dinner…in my foggy state, I accidentally used Tablespoon measurements on the spices instead of teaspoon… 😉

    Such a great post….can’t wait to try these. I love Pam, esp Pam with flour when I am doing cakes. Such a great giveaway, thank you so much. BTW, I enjoy following your blog.

    Jessie C. says

    Always use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat for stick-free and easy clean-up. Silpats is my favorite when it comes to bake cookies.

  7. 13

    Colee says

    My best holiday baking tip? When I make cookies I double the batch and freeze half the dough (preformed into balls). That way when Im lazy, I can just bake a few at a time.

  8. 19


    I have never had homemade cinnamon rolls. I’ve always just gotten them from Cinnabun. They are sooooo good! Oh man I wish I could bake that well!

  9. 22

    LeAnn V says

    Keep it simple, make it ahead, and freeze. Most baked goods freeze well, then you are always prepared for company and or parties!

  10. 25

    robin says

    Stock up on ingredients when they’re on sale. You’ve saved some $$ and are ready for baking when a blizzard hits and you can’t get to the store. 😉

  11. 28

    Julie says

    I keep it simple plan ahead and have all my ingredients on hand then plan on a time to do all my baking
    thanks for the giveaway

    Patricia Hotz says

    I make my pie dough ahead of time and freeze till a few days before making my pies I remove the dough then just have to roll out and fill and bake.thanks for the chance to win!!

    Let your children help! Little hands in the kitchen are messy, but you are making memories that will last a lifetime!

  14. 33

    D SCHMIDT says

    My short cut is making cookies in advance and then freezing them, I also tend to do that with scones, fruit pies and pound cakes as well! I also admit sometimes when I am short on time to using ready made frosting.

  15. 38

    Mahdi Martin says

    My best holiday baking tip is to prepare as much ahead of time as possible so you don’t get overwhelmed on the special day. If you want non lumpy gravy, start with a roux, and slowly add your liquids!

  16. 40

    Wanda McHenry says

    Spread out your baking a week or two in advance and freeze the cookies or treats that you are able and make the ones you can’t freeze at the end of the line.

  17. 42

    Amy L says

    Mix up a batch or two of cookie dough and stash it in the fridge to be baked when you have time. Most doughs will keep for at least a few days. This way you can get your baking done in short “snippets” of time.

  18. 43

    Amber says

    My tip is to clean while you cook/bake, because if you don’t you’ll never end up cleaning up at all 😉 Or at least thats how it is for me!

  19. 48

    Margot C says

    I like to measure some butter, freeze it then grate it into chips”. I then dust the chips with flour and freeze them until I need them to make a crust.

  20. 52

    Robin Wilson says

    Use cocoa powder instead of flour when dusting your cake pans when making chocolate cakes. No white reside.

  21. 56

    Susan H. says

    My best holiday baking tip is to get organized. Be sure to get all ingredients out, measured, chopped, whatever…get it all ready before beginning. Thanks.

  22. 58

    Tracy says

    As little last-minute, day-of prep as possible. And make and freeze cookies so they can be packaged and given away quickly.

  23. 60

    Carol W says

    Plan ahead, make a shopping list and make sure you have everything handy before you get started. Also, make sure once you start you clean as you go.

  24. 61

    Jenny says

    How about the butter amount for your readers…especially this one who has everything in the works, but has no idea on the butter amount. Stuck…help! Please respond with butter amount!!!

  25. 70

    Jill Myrick says

    I always try to bake two items at a time as long as the temperature is the same that was it saves time and energy.


  26. 71

    Laurie Emerson says

    My best holiday baking tip is to try and pick up at least 2 or 3 items every time you go grocery shopping a few months in advance.

  27. 72

    Karrie Millheim says

    prep as much as you can the day before. tomorrow I am doing alot of prep so it is not to much on Thanksgiving

  28. 79

    Tanya says

    Pam definitely makes cooking and baking whole lot easier! Also make sure you have all your ingredients needed before you start putting them together, you don’t want any emergency mid-baking store runs because you ran out of an ingredient or didn’t have it.. Wonderful recipe for the Cinnamon Rolls as well, I can’t wait to try it!

  29. 86

    Vikki Billings says

    My best tip is to start preparing things the night before or even the day before so that you are not trying to rush around.
