Ever since I published Crazy Dough recipe, I’ve been getting inquiries about how to make Cinnamon
Rolls using that miracle dough. Finally, I made the recipe for Crazy Doug Cinnamon Rolls and step-by-step instructions for you to enjoy!
If you plan to make vegan cinnamon rolls, use Vegan Crazy Dough instead of regular on e, margarine instead of butter and some kind of vegan cream instead of heavy cream.
The advantage of using Crazy Dough is that you can make whole recipe from scratch in 1 hour, no kneading needed.
Roll the dough, spread with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Roll the dough into a log.
Cut the roll with a sharp knife into slices and place them in a buttered pan.
Let slices rise in a warm place about 20-25 minutes.
Bake until tops are golden.
Drizzle with glaze.
This video will show you the procedure for making Crazy Dough:
- 1/2 batch Crazy Dough or Vegan Crazy Dough
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 6 Tbsp butter* melted
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 3 Tbsp butter* melted
- 1 1/2 Tbsp heavy cream*
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine Crazy Dough with white sugar. Roll on a floured surface into a rectangle, leaving 1/2-inch border on the long sides.
Spread with 6 Tbsp melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Starting at a long edge, roll dough into a log.
With seam side down, cut roll with a thin sharp knife into 15-16 (1-inch) slices. Place slices in an buttered pan (I used 11x8 inches; 30x22 cm pan). Let rise in a warm place about 20-25 minutes or until almost double in size.
Bake in preheated 350 F (175 C) oven for about 20-30 minutes or until tops are golden.
Remove cinnamon rolls from oven and invert onto rack. Let cool a bit.
GLAZE: In a small bowl, combine 3 Tbsp melted butter, heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla. Drizzle glaze over rolls.
*for vegan rolls, use margarine instead of butter and vegan cream instead of heavy cream
Just used this recipe with the vegan substitutes and with your Vegan Crazy Dough. We loved the results and I really appreciated the ease of this recipe and how quick the recipe came together! Thank you!
Yay! I’m so glad you liked them 🙂
Hello Tara, I want to make this recipe vegan as well. What did you use instead of heavy cream?
You can use chestnut creme, coconut creme. Be aware margarine is not vegan if ingredients has whey in it.
I gotta try this crazy dough of yours. These cinnamon rolls look so good. 🙂
I understand you completely. I was waiting for years before I tried the recipe. Now I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner.
BEST RECIPE EVER!!! I had several people at our house during the Easter holiday and literally made this almost every morning for breakfast. People could not stop raving about how good the rolls were. I also made the crazy dough for dinner rolls on Easter and fresh Foccia when we had left overs. FANTASTIC!!!!
Hey, that’s great! I’m really glad you and your guests liked it. 🙂
When you say combine the crazy dough with the sugar do you mean make a half batch from scratch and add in extra sugar?
Meaning you cant use a batch you have in the fridge to make it as it wont be sweet enough?
I wanted to make a full batch and use half for pizza’s and half for cinnamon rolls.
If you are making Crazy Dough from scratch, you add extra sugar in the beginning.
You can use a batch of already made Crazy Dough you have in the fridge, too. Sprinkle the sugar over the dough and knead until sugar is incorporated.
