Micro batch baking – the invitation is to get all the best way into it with me! That is all very Kristin Wiig making herself a single, unhappy cupcake within the film Bridesmaids, save for the truth that there’s completely zero unhappiness in me consuming a single cinnamon roll over the kitchen sink in my pajamas. That is, the truth is, what I name luxurious. This single-serve cinnamon roll deserves a correct residence and printable recipe right here on the weblog earlier than I determine if this complete collection is an book or a zine one thing – this actually is one thing (and a correct cookbook would take too lengthy).
This singular cinnamon roll (which might, in fact be doubled for 2 folks or simply as a result of) is gooey and finest loved heat with cream cheese glaze dripping down your fingers. You may completely use a fork if you should sustain appearances, however actually what enjoyable is that?
It is a yeasted, quick-rise cinnamon roll. Simply because we’re making one roll doesn’t imply we’re skimping on method and texture. Now, let’s make this excellent lil’ cinnamon bun.
Listed here are the components you’ll must make this singe serve cinnamon roll recipe:
• all-purpose flour
• speedy rise yeast
• baking powder
• granulated sugar
• kosher salt
• vegetable oil
• complete milk or any milk you like
• butter, both softened or melted butter
• brown sugar
• floor cinnamon
• cream cheese
• powdered sugar
• vanilla extract
* you could possibly make this recipe vegan by substituting an alternate milk for the dough, vegan butter unfold for the filling, and a simple powdered sugar glaze for the topping.
In a small bowl, whisk collectively the dry components: flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, immediate yeast (like RapidRise), and salt.
Within the microwave, heat milk and oil till simply heat to the contact. It’s okay if the 2 don’t combine nicely collectively, it’ll come along with the dough.
Add the moist combination to the dry components and use a small spatula to type a tough dough. The dough will probably be relatively shaggy and moist however not sticky. In the event you discover that your dough is on the dry aspect (aka you’re not down right here in steamy New Orleans) add extra heat milk a teaspoon at a time. In the event you discover that your dough is on the moist aspect, simply flour the counter generously to knead.
Flip the dough onto a calmly floured counter and knead for 25 turns or so. You’ll really feel the gluten begin to type because the dough springs again from the stress of kneading. Drape a clear kitchen towel over the bouncy dough and permit to relaxation for 10 minutes.
Roll the dough into a skinny rectangle about 9×6-inches lengthy. I discovered it best to roll the dough on a really calmly floured floor so the dough can stick a bit to the floor. A bit of little bit of traction is useful because the dough doesn’t have a ton of time to relaxation and calm down.
Unfold dough with softened butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and floor cinnamon.
To create an plentiful roll, from the 6-inch aspect of the dough, lower three lengthy strips. Roll one strip right into a coil. Place that coil on the second strip and proceed to roll the coil. Proceed with the final strip of dough to create a beneficiant roll.
Place the roll in an oven-safe ramekin or dish coated with cooking spray or greased with butter.
Pictured above is a 1-cup ramekin. I like for the roll to bake in one thing cozy so it maintains its coil form.
Cowl the ramekin loosely with a kitchen towel and permit to relaxation and rise for Half-hour whereas the oven preheats. I depart the coated ramekin within the warmest spot in my kitchen for this quick rise – proper close to the again burner outdoors the warming oven.
Bake within the higher third of the oven till simply golden across the edges and effervescent from the middle.
Whereas the roll bakes I make a fast cream cheese glaze, although you could possibly all the time simply make a easy milk and powdered sugar glaze in case you don’t have cream cheese available.
Take away the roll from the ramekin and coat generously with cream cheese frosting. Now, there’s no time to attend – this can be a candy deal with for proper now.

For the dough:
For the filling:
For the glaze:
- Place a rack within the higher third of the oven and preheat oven to 350 levels F. Spray a 1-cup oven-safe ramekin with nonstick cooking spray (or smear with softened butter) and put aside. To determine the aspect of your ramekin, fill a measuring cup with 1 cup of water and pour the water into the ramekin. A 1-cup ramekin will probably be stuffed to absolutely the brim. Use an oven-safe vessel as near 1-cup as you’ve got.
- In a small bowl whisk collectively flour, sugar, baking powder, yeast, and a pinch of salt. In a small measuring cup whisk collectively oil and milk and warmth within the microwave till simply heat to the contact (someplace between 105 and 110 levels F).

Frivolously sprinkle the counter with flour and knead the small dough ball for 20-30 turns. Frivolously cowl with a clear kitchen towel and permit to take a seat for 10 minutes.
- Roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness right into a 9-inch tall x 6-inch huge rectangle (although mine is all the time extra like an oval). You gained’t want an excessive amount of flour on the counter since you need the dough to stay to the counter only a bit to carry its form.
- Smear with butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Sprinkle with cinnamon and possibly a sprinkle of salt. Use a big knife to slice the dough into 3 strips (about 2-inches every). Roll the primary strip into a comparatively tight coil. Place that coil on the second strip and roll once more. Place that coil on the third strip and roll right into a beneficiant cinnamon roll. Place within the ready ramekin, cowl loosely with a towel and place close to the oven because it heats. Enable to relaxation for 20-Half-hour till puffed.
- Bake for 16-18 minutes till golden and effervescent. Whereas the roll bakes, whisk collectively the glaze. (I zap the cream cheese within the microwave for just a few seconds to tremendous soften it.) Add cream cheese, vanilla, salt, and a tiny splash of milk to get the correct consistency.
- Take away roll from the oven. Enable to relaxation for five minutes earlier than utilizing a butterknife or massive spoon to scoop the recent scorching roll from the ramekin. Smear with glaze and wow, take pleasure in instantly.
