Is there anything better than the smell of cinnamon during the holiday season? I love the smell of cinnamon wafting from my oven while a fresh pot of coffee brews! Nothing evokes the joy of the holidays like sharing memories with family and friends over a cup of delicious coffee and a homemade cinnamon roll.
My favorite way to get the smell of cinnamon in my home is to bake cinnamon rolls. I have several fun cinnamon roll recipes already – like my Mini-Cinnamon Rolls or Maple Java Cinnamon Rolls. But last week when I was making bread, I decided to try a new twist on the old cinnamon roll – a Cinnamon Roll Ring!
You can make this ring using any cinnamon roll recipe, bread recipe or even frozen bread dough. I used my Never Fail Bread recipe for the dough. I rolled the dough out and then spread butter over the dough. I sprinkled a few handfuls of brown sugar over the butter and then about a teaspoon of cinnamon on top of the brown sugar.
Then I rolled the dough up as normal along the long side of the rectangle. Instead of slicing into individual rolls, I pulled the ends of the roll together and pinched them into a ring.
I then sliced the ring about 2-3″ apart not quite all the way through the ring.
Cover with a towel and pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Let the rolls rest and rise for about 15 minutes.
Bake the ring at 350 degrees until golden brown. I almost always accidentally undercook my cinnamon rolls. The middle is always a tad doughy and I end up putting them back in. But I would say right around 20 minutes will suffice.
These cinnamon rolls are amazing with a freshly brewed cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee! I’ve been making my rolls in the later morning or early afternoon lately and may have been eating them with a cup of coffee as my lunch.
