I found it, you guys. The holy grail. A cinnamon roll recipe that produces perfectly soft and gooey cinnamon rolls in a small batch!
Baking Mischief’s Overnight Cinnamon Rolls for Two are a major find.
I didn’t have a 6-7″ pan, so I cut the rolls into 6 pieces and divided them into 3″ springform pans (3 pieces per pan). It was the perfect amount for me and my son. They only needed 15 minutes to bake and they made the most glorious crispy tops crowning a soft roll filled with spirals of warm, brown sugar and cinnamon. Nirvana.
The best thing about this recipe is that you make the rolls AND the frosting the night before, stick them in the fridge and then pop them in the oven in the morning. And I didn’t even use my mixer. Just a whisk and two bowls. I am in love.
