Heritage Cinnamon Rolls

Keyword: Cinnamon Rolls, Heritage Cinnamon Rolls
Author: Joni Call


  • 2 1/2 Cups warm water
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp yeast
  • 3 Tbsp oil (coconut oil gives a wonderful flavor)
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 1/3 Cup mashed potatoes (about one medium potato mashed with a fork) or ½ Cup potato flakes
  • 5-6 Cups Sunrise Flour Mill Heritage White Flour
  • 4 Tbsp Melted butter (1/2 stick)
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon (more if a stronger cinnamon flavor is desired)
  • 1/3 Cup Sugar

Butter Cream Frosting

  • 1/2 Cup Butter (one stick)
  • 4 Tbsp Milk
  • 4 Cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla


  • Note: I used a mixer but you can mix this recipe by hand.
  • In your mixer or large mixing bowl, mix warm water, sugar, and yeast until the sugar and yeast are dissolved.
  • Add oil, salt, and potatoes and mix until well-blended.
  • Add the flour one cup at a time on low, mixing well after each addition until the dough is no longer sticky. This is not a wet or sticky dough so you can use your judgment here. It won’t hurt to add the amount you need to for the right consistency.
  • With the dough hook, knead for 4-5 minutes, or longer to get good gluten development. At the end, you will have a smooth dough that is tacky, not sticky (You can do this step by hand, in a mixer with a dough hook, or in a bread machine on the mix cycle).
  • Let the dough rise in a bowl covered with a towel for 1 hour or until it’s double in size.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl onto a floured work surface.
  • Roll out the dough to a ¼-½  inch thick rectangle.
  • Drizzle the dough with melted butter, the second ⅓ Cup sugar, and cinnamon evenly over the surface. Make sure to include the edges.
  • From the long side of the rectangle, roll the dough tightly in jelly-roll fashion.
  • Slice pieces 1-1¼ inches using a piece of dental floss or string.
  • Place rolls in a well-greased pan(s) so they are touching each other. (This recipe makes 18-24 rolls depending on the size - you might need more than one pan)
  • Let rest for about 30-45 minutes lightly covered with a towel. In the meantime, heat oven to 350F.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Check their progress periodically.
  • Remove pan(s) from oven. When rolls are warm, not hot, frost with a cream cheese or buttercream frosting.
