Whenever I get a taste for something sweet, I have to find the perfect treat to satisfy my craving. There are so many great desserts out there, but the star of the show today is definitely cinnamon rolls. These delicious and gooey sweets are a must have in every home. I love to make cinnamon rolls in the oven. The cinnamon rolls oven temp and time are key for a good result. A popular question I always hear is this. How long to bake cinnamon rolls at 350 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven? In this guide, I like to talk about this and some tips to perfect the recipe for the homemade cinnamon rolls in oven.
You will need 20 minutes to bake cinnamon rolls at 350 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven. You can expect very lightly crisped outsides with a gooey and sweet center for your baked cinnamon rolls. When I say gooey don’t get me wrong, it’s not undercooked. It’s just so soft that each bite will practically melt in your mouth. You want to have a little bit of a golden crisp to the outside to include multiple textures in each bite. So, if you want to make some mouthwatering cinnamon rolls, bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Sometimes you may want to speed things up a little when you are in a rush for time. Or maybe you want to add a little more crunch to your rolls. To achieve this, you could cook at temperatures that are higher than 350 degrees. Baking cinnamon rolls in the oven at 375 degrees F needs only 16 minutes. And baking cinnamon rolls in the oven at 400 degrees F is even faster at 12 minutes. However, these short baking times mean that you have to be very careful to watch the rolls. Otherwise, you might end up with hard and burnt cinnamon rolls. Of course a little more crunch can be achieved with these higher oven temp, but you don’t want to break your teeth on a hard roll. You may also have to worry about a drier roll, but this might not be too much of a concern being that icing is added at the end anyway.
You can also go lower than 350 degrees. However, if you bake at lower temp such as 325 degrees, you have to be careful not to eat raw dough. Cinnamon rolls use filling in their recipe, which means there is extra moisture in the center. If the temperature is not high enough, the middle of the roll will struggle to cook through and may still be raw if it is not baked sufficiently long enough.
These are just a few other temperatures you can consider, just be aware of what’s happening in the oven in order to avoid problems with your cinnamon rolls.
After numerous trials, I find that the best temperature to use when baking cinnamon rolls is easily 350 degrees Fahrenheit. This baking temperature creates a homemade cinnamon roll that can rival the manufactured competitors. Using 350 degrees will guarantee that the oven isn’t too high or too low. If the temperature is too high, you could end up with hard and burnt rolls. Using a temperature that is too low could leave you with raw dough in the center. This is the perfect temperature to use if you want to have some perfectly glazed cinnamon rolls with minimal hassle.
You are so close to eating your own sweet, tantalizing, homemade cinnamon rolls. There are many recipes for making cinnamon rolls in the oven on the internet. However, I have a preference to this one easy recipe for cinnamon rolls. And here’s how to make cinnamon rolls in the oven.
Go to the store and buy flour, vanilla extract, brown sugar, whole milk, butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, ground cinnamon, salt, sugar, yeast, eggs, and parchment paper.
Start by making the dough first. Put 3/4 cup of warm milk, 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast, 3 cups of flour, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of butter, and 3/4 teaspoon of salt into a bowl (add the warm milk and yeast first and let it sit for 5 minutes before adding the other ingredients). Mix thoroughly and knead it for about 5 minutes into a ball, then cover it to let it rise for either 2 hours or overnight.
When the dough is almost done proofing (rising), start making the filling. In another bowl, add 1/4 cup of softened butter, 2/3 cup of brown sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon and mix until you have a paste.
Roll out the dough into a rectangle shape that is about 1/4 inch thick and 20-24 inches across in all directions. Evenly spread the filling on it. Once the filling is spread, roll the dough longways until you have a tube shape. Cut the tube of dough into individual pieces that are about 2 inches across the top. Do this as evenly as possible.
Place some parchment paper on a 9×13 in baking pan and space the rolls out evenly.
Set the oven to 350 degrees and bake the cinnamon rolls for 20 minutes. The rolls will likely touch one another, but this is okay.
While the rolls are baking, make the icing. Place 4 oz. of softened cream cheese, 3/4 cup of powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 3 tablespoons of softened butter into a bowl and mix.
Once the cinnamon rolls are done baking, sprinkle the icing over the top and let them cool for about 10 minutes. Enjoy!
The cinnamon rolls are done when you see the rolls acquiring a golden brown color on top. To test whether it is fully baked at its center, towards the end of the bake time, use a fork and try pulling out the roll at its center. If you see the dough sticking to the fork and looks raw, then it is not done yet and will require further cooking. Otherwise, it is cooked and you can take them out of the oven.
There is nothing worse than having to wait to eat when you’re hungry. If you are looking for ways to speed up the cinnamon roll making process, stay tuned. Cinnamon rolls freeze well, so keep this in mind when making the dough. Make sure you have all the ingredients you need stocked up so that you can save yourself a trip to the store. Once the dough is rolled up and cut into pieces, place them in a vacuumed sealed bag and pop the dough in the freezer for later. The dough will last about a month in this state, so try to enjoy them before then. Cooked cinnamon rolls don’t reheat well, so make sure you don’t bake them before freezing. Using this method should help to cut down on a good amount of the time you would spend preparing the rolls.
The cinnamon roll in its original, most basic form is absolutely delicious all by itself, but there are plenty of toppings you can use to make this dish better.
Add some walnuts or almonds on the top of the frosting for the cinnamon rolls to get a crunchy and nutty taste.
You can also put some strawberries or bananas on there if you enjoy fruit with your sweets.
If you want to make your cinnamon roll even tastier, consider sprinkling a little bit of extra cinnamon to add some more flavor to your dessert.
The last way you can make this dish better is by adding some unique flavoring to the icing you use. Try coffee or chocolate flavors to switch things up a little.
If you want to make a fun and rewarding dessert for your friends and family, cinnamon rolls are definitely the way to go!
