Simple and delicious Homemade Eggless Cinnamon Rolls perfect for the holiday season! Learn how to make Cinnamon Rolls at home with step-wise pictures.
So it’s the holiday season already! Part of me is happy cos I love festivities and it’s that time of the year when the air is chill, and people are relaxed. The other side of me is wondering how soon 2018 seemed to have gone by. Sigh. Anyway, lets focus of the good part and getting back to the holiday season, I love baking goodies using this as an excuse 🙂 Truth be told, I love yeast based bakes and breads more than cakes or cookies. So obviously the first recipe I am going to share during this season is Eggless Cinnamon Rolls.
I gifted myself a KitchenAid Stand Mixer during my recent trip to the U.S and it is something I love so so much! One of the reasons I stopped sharing bread recipes, although I love bread making is because of the unbearable pain in my wrists, kneading the dough by hand. This stand mixer *not sponsored* is like a dream come true. I made several goodies trying it out at my sister’s place but Eggless Cinnamon Rolls were first thing I made once I was back home – they were devoured by everyone at home and another batch is being demanded soon 🙂
These Eggless Cinnamon Rolls are light and so very fluffy. I like the fact that they were not overly sweet. As these are made at home, I found them much better than the rolls from any store. I served them with evening tea but these are perfect for breakfast too!
There are so many recipes available online but I looked at the recipe at King Arthur Flour and modified it to suit the ingredients that are easily available in Indian market. I glazed the baked Cinnamon Rolls lightly with a sugar glaze but chocolate glaze works great too. These homemade Cinnamon Rolls stay well for 3-4 days even at room temperature. Simply microwave them for 20-30 secs before serving them!
