Cooking Tips

  • Make sure the milk is warm, but not too hot, to activate the yeast.
  • If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour while kneading.
  • For a gooey caramel flavor, add a layer of caramel sauce to the bottom of the baking dish before placing the rolls.
  • To make the rolls ahead of time, prepare them up to the point of baking, cover tightly, and refrigerate overnight. Let them come to room temperature before baking.
  • You can also freeze the unbaked rolls for up to 1 month. Thaw them overnight in the refrigerator before baking.

Storage and Serving

  • These whole wheat cinnamon rolls are best served warm.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  • To reheat, microwave individual rolls for a few seconds or warm them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for about 5 minutes.
  • Serve with a cup of hot coffee or tea for a delightful breakfast or brunch treat.
