Ultimate Cinnamon Rolls

Yield: 9 to 12 rolls

Ultimate Cinnamon Rolls


  • 2-7/8 cups (3 cups minus 2 TBSP) Pamela's Artisan Flour Blend
  • 1-1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° optimal)
  • 1 cup scalded milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 TBSP butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 TBSP softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 TBSP + 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/8 cup brown sugar
  • 3/8 cup cream
  • 3 TBSP honey
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans



Scald milk, remove from heat and add sugar, butter. Cool to lukewarm. Proof yeast in warm water. Mix Pamela’s Artisan Flour Blend and salt, place in bowl of stand mixer, add liquids and egg, and mix on low until flour is moistened. Mix on high just until well combined, less than a minute.

Pour onto parchment sprayed with oil, pat into rectangle about 12 x 10". Dough will be loose. Spread filling and raisins over the dough, leaving 1" uncovered at the top. Using the parchment, roll up the long side forming a log (like rolling sushi) and cut into 9 pieces for a 9 x 9" or 12 pieces for a 8 x 11.5" pan, sprayed with oil. Spray tops with oil or brush with melted butter. Cover with plastic wrap, place in warm draft-free area, and let rise to almost double.

Remove covering, bake in pre-heated oven at 375° for 25 to 30 minutes.


Mix all ingredients with a fork until well combined.


Melt butter in pan, add sugar, cream, honey, salt and zest. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer 4 to 5 minutes, let cool slightly. In a separate bowl, mix yolks and slowly add 3 TBSP hot mixture to eggs, whisking constantly. Slowly whisk eggs back into pan and simmer until sauce thickens, about 3 to 4 more minutes.

Serve Cinnamon Rolls warm with nuts and warm sauce spooned over the top.

    I was really excited about finding a good gluten free cinnamon roll recipe as this is one of our favorites for Thanksgiving morning. I did a trial run this morning and was very disappointed. I followed the directions completely and the dough which according to the recipe was suppose to be loose was very heavy. I rolled it out and put the filling on hoping that it would be okay. It wasn’t. I let it rise for over an hour and nothing. I decided to bake it anyway and it still did not rise at all. The taste and texture was fine but just too heavy and not light and fluffy as I was expecting. Please let me know if I need to alter the recipe. I live at about 300 ft elevation so that should not enter into the equation.

      HI Mary –
      It sounds like you need to add more liquid so that the dough is thinner and can open up. That will help. Please let us know how it goes!
