The happiest of holidays to you. Why not celebrate with a giant cinnamon roll the size of a cake? Tis the season. :)

I had a little fun in the kitchen this past weekend. I had visions of this giant cinnamon roll in my head for weeks and had no idea if it would turn out. If you follow me on Instagram, you witnessed my trepidations.

I rolled out my dough, spiraled it in a large coil, let it rise, and baked it. The result ended with me on the couch sipping a glass of wine and calling a huge piece of cinnamon roll cake my dinner. Recipe success, to say the least.

The idea for this cake came from a giant craving for gooey cinnamon rolls. I blame the tempting smells of cinnamon rolls wafting through the mall as I holiday shopped this month. The mall near my apartment knows me too well. They stick a Cinnabon right next to Nordstrom, my favorite store. Seriously?!


This cake… I mean, this breakfast? This breakfast cake? Ok, it’s all of the above.

This giant cinnamon roll has got to be my favorite recipe of the year. And I post a ton of recipes, as you know! It’s soft, fluffy coils. Gooey cinnamon center. Vanilla icing melting into every crevice. And its massive size. What’s not to love here?

Though it may look intimidating, I assure you – it’s not!

It’s the same dough recipe from my wildly popular Easy Cinnamon Roll recipe. What makes them so easy? Well, they’re quite quick! I wanted to use the same dough for today’s cake because so many of you have had success with it. And I personally love it’s fluffiness, softness, and… let’s be honest. I love it the most for its ease!

The first thing you’re going to do is make sure you have some good yeast. I use Red Star Platinum yeast. I have the best results in my breads and rolls when I use their platinum line. Though I am being compensated for sponsoring Red Star Yeast today, please know that I’ve loved this yeast even before working with Red Star. Their Platinum line is fantastic; its careful, instant formula strengthens your dough and makes making working with yeast simple.1 standard packet of yeast (2 and 1/4 teaspoons) is what you need for this cinnamon roll cake.

Note: if you replace Red Star Platinum with regular active dry yeast, you rise time may be 50% longer.

The rest of the dough ingredients are pretty standard: flour, sugar, salt, water, milk, butter, and 1 egg. You’ll add only enough flour to the dough to make it workable before kneading. Any more flour and you may end up with a tough-textured cake. Your dough is ready to knead when it begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

You’ll knead the dough for about 3-4 full minutes. Want to learn more about the process of kneading? I study this helpful guide often. When you’re finished kneading, cover the dough and let it rest for about 30 minutes. It will only very slightly rise in this 30 minutes, not much at all. It really just needs a chance to let the gluten settle. During this time, I got my filling ingredients ready: softened butter, cinnamon, and sugar.

After 30 minutes, roll the dough out into a 15×12 inch rectangle. Use a ruler to be accurate; I always keep one handy in a kitchen drawer. Spread the sotened butter all over the dough. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.

Here’s the part that’s slightly unconventional. Using a very sharp knife or a pizza cutter (I used a pizza cutter – it’s easiest), cut the dough into six 2-inch wide strips. Loosely roll up one strip and place it in the center of a 9-inch round pan. You’re rolling it up loosely so the dough has some give as it rises in the next step.

Coil the remaining 5 strips around the center roll, starting each strip at the end of the previous one to make one large rolled cake.

That was probably a little confusing. So here is a visual:

How to Make a Giant Cinnamon Roll Cake! Step-by-step instructions on

I always crimp the ends together with my fingers to press them together as I’m coiling the next strip. You can see most of the ends pressed together at the top right of the photo above.

The cake takes about 60-90 minutes to rise and double in size.

Loosely cover the cake with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and place in a draft-free warm spot in your kitchen. Here’s what I do: I heat the oven to 200F. I turn off the oven.  I place the rolls inside for 90 minutes. There, that’s it!

The cake’s coils will puff up and double in size during that 60-90 minutes. Then, it’s time to bake the best breakfast you’ll ever eat. 😉

Bake the cake until the top is lightly golden brown, about 30-35 minutes. Check after 20 minutes to make sure the top is not browning too fast. If so, cover the top loosely with aluminum foil for the last 10-15 minutes to prevent over browning. During this time, your kitchen will smell amazing. Just as amazing as Cinnabon smells in the mall. As amazing as your favorite bakery in the morning. It’s completely glorious. You’ll want to make this cake every morning not only for its taste, but for its smell.

Something to note: while the cake is baking, some spots may rise up more than other spots. That’s completely normal and well, quite expected! I simply removed the pan from the oven and pressed down on the sides with the back of a spatula that were rising more than others.

Here’s the baked cinnamon roll cake, ready for a generous shower of vanilla/maple glaze.

Yep, on top of your cinnamon roll cake will go a flavorful vanilla/maple glaze. Have fun with the glaze – you can leave out the maple syrup to make it a standard vanilla glaze. Or leave out the vanilla, so it’s a plain maple glaze. Or make a coffee glaze like I did here.

Now it’s time to dig in. Though I warn you to never cut into regular cakes until they have cooled, you may certainly eat this cinnamon roll cake right away. Just let it cool for about 10 minutes. Just enough time to make the glaze.

I cut the giant cinnamon roll like a traditional cake. Alternatively, you could just uncoil it and let everyone have a go, sort of like you do with caramel monkey bread. Hey, it’s ok to have fun with your food once in awhile!

Now, go make some cake!

Learn how to make a beautiful, fluffy, and soft cinnamon roll cake using my kitchen-tested dough recipe.



  • 2 and 3/4 cups (345g) all-purpose flour (careful not to overmeasure)
  • 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package Red Star Platinum Yeast or any instant yeast* (1 packet = 2 and 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) water
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk
  • 3 Tablespoons (45g) unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature


  • 3 Tablespoons (45g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar

Vanilla Maple Glaze

  • 1 cup (120g) confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1 Tablespoon (15ml) milk or cream
  • 1 Tablespoon (15ml) pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Make the dough: Set aside 1/2 cup of flour. In a large bowl, toss the 2 and 1/4 cups flour, the sugar, salt, and yeast together until evenly dispersed. Set aside.
  2. Heat the water, milk, and butter together in the microwave until the butter is melted and the mixture is hot to touch. About 115-120F degrees. Stir the butter mixture into the flour mixture. Add the egg and only enough of the reserved flour to make a soft dough. I only needed 1/3 cup, but you may need the full 1/2 cup. Dough will be ready when it gently pulls away from the side of the bowl and has an elastic consistency.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for about 3-4 minutes. Form a ball and place in a lightly greased bowl (I used non-stick spray). Cover tightly and let rest for 30 minutes. The dough will slightly rise.
  4. Make the filling: After 30 minutes, roll the dough out in a 15x12 inch rectangle. Spread the softened butter on top. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle it all over the dough. Spray a 9-inch round pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  5. Please see above for a visual of this step. Using a very sharp knife or a pizza cutter (I used a pizza cutter - it's easiest), cut the dough into six 2-inch wide strips. Loosely roll up one strip and place it in the center of the pan. You're rolling it up loosely so the dough has some give as it rises. Coil the remaining 5 strips around the center roll, starting each strip at the end of the previous one to make one large rolled cake. Some of the filling may spill out as you pick up the strips, but I just sprinkled that on top of the cake after I was finished spiraling.
  6. Loosely cover the cake with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm, draft-free place for 60-90 minutes. Here is what I do: heat the oven to 200F degrees. Turn oven off. Place cake inside oven and allow to rise. My cake took the full 90 minutes.
  7. After the cake's dough has nearly doubled in size, preheat the oven to 350F. Bake for 30-35 minutes until lightly browned. I covered the rolls with aluminum foil after 15 minutes to avoid heavy browning. *While the cake is baking, some spots may rise up more than other spots. That's completely normal and well, quite expected! I simply removed the pan from the oven and pressed down on the sides with the back of a spatula that were rising more than others.
  8. Make the glaze: Remove cake from the oven when it's done. Allow the cake to cool for about 10 minutes. Then, right before serving, drizzle with glaze. Mix the sifted confectioners' sugar, milk/cream, maple syrup and vanilla together until smooth and drizzle over rolls. If you prefer a thicker glaze, add more powdered sugar and then add salt to cut the sweetness, if desired.
  9. Cake is best enjoyed the same day, but will remain fresh covered tightly for up to 4 days at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Additional Notes:

*Overnight: The dough may be made the night before through step 5. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning, remove from the refrigerator and let rise, about 1 hour.

*If you replace Red Star Platinum with regular active dry yeast, you rise time may be 50% longer.

*For the glaze - you can leave out the maple syrup to make it a standard vanilla glaze. Or leave out the vanilla, so it's a plain maple glaze. Or make a coffee glaze like I did here.

    Hi Sally,
    This was divine – my kids were asking for more for days after we ate it (it was gone almost instantly)! When I made it there was a lot of cinnamon sugar on the rolled out dough and when I tried to move the strips to wrap them in the baking dish I lost a lot of it – so i ended up rolling it on the counter and then trying to unroll it in the pan to give it some growing room…any advice on a better way to achieve the roll without losing the cinnamon sugary goodness?


    • Sallyreplied on January 10th, 2014 at 6:21 am

      Hi Shirah! I’m so glad you tried this cake. I actually mention that in the recipe and the post. That some of the cinnamon sugar will fall off. You can’t avoid that. I typically just sprinkle it back on top of the cake before I let it rise. If you found you lost *too* much, just use less filling next time and sprinkle some cinnamon + sugar on top.

    Hello Sally –

    I’m new to your site as of a few days ago and I am in love! I tried your Snickerdoodle Cookies (Amazing!) and this Cinnamon Roll cake and they were both simply amazing! My Giant Cinnamon Roll came out looking just like yours and it tasted divine! My husband is loving it all and I’m baking faster than he can eat these goodies! This recipe is perfection and the dough came out so soft and chewy! Thanks for the great recipes! You’ve got a new follower in me and I can’t wait for your new cookbook to come out!

    Hi Sally,

    How long does the Cinnamon Bun cake keep for?? I am dying to make it for my partners birthday, so wanted to make it Monday evening, would this still be ok for wednesday evening? would it be best to keep in an air tight container until then?

    Thanks! x


    • Sallyreplied on January 20th, 2014 at 6:28 pm

      Hi Olivia – the cake is best enjoyed the same day, but will remain fresh covered tightly for up to 4 days at room temperature or in the refrigerator. For best taste though? Make it the day that you want to serve it.

    Hello Sally,
    I’m normally more of an observer on blogs but after making your AMAZING Giant Cinnamon Roll Cake, I had to tell you how much I loved it.
    You’ve definitely inspired me to be more creative in what I bake (although there isn’t anything wrong with always bringing choc chip cookies to every social gathering in my opinion!!)
    My roll was slightly too brown but my mum, dad, aunty, uncle and I devoured it a few minutes for brunch.
    So thank you for the inspiration and for making me feel slightly less alone in my obsession with sprinkles.

    Loved you Giant Cinnamon Roll Cake! I made to celebrate my oldest getting his next belt in karate. :) I made a couple of adjustments that you may be interested in as it makes is healthier and WAY less rising time. Proof 1 T yeast ( i use Fleischmann’s active dry in jar) in the 1/2 c warm water w/ 1 T honey ( not sugaar) FIRST. Then add warmed milk, 2 Tbsp honey ( not sugar), 3 T olive oil ( not butter) to proofed yeast. Add the dry ingredients w/ egg and 1/4 c flax meal. Mix, knead as directed. Let rise 30 minutes. Roll, do filling, Roll cake as directed. In warmed oven, only rise 30 minutes. It will be more than doubled in size by this point if not earlier. ( not 60 -90 min) Proofing the yeast first makes a big difference. Mine only baked for 25 minutes and was done. also, I used Organic White Wheat flour. A healthier, super yummy, less time version. I hope you try it and see what you think. :) I make all of our bread for my family of 7. ( including sandwich bread) I always have very quick rises with proofing yeast first. :)

    Hi Sally! I’m going to make this cake for Sunday and I’ve got a question :)! I can’t find dry yeast, so can I use fresh yeast instead?
    And– I’m not sure I’ll have time to make this on time, so I was thinking about doing this on Friday… so what is best, to bake it and then freeze it, or to freeze the dough? Thank you ♥!


    • Sallyreplied on February 6th, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    Hi- for the “overnight” instructions ….. are you sure about letting it rise for 12 hours at room temperature with a raw egg in the dough??? With the rapid rise yeast? I’m thinking it will over- rise then collapse ….Have you done it this way yourself?


    • Sallyreplied on February 16th, 2014 at 4:46 pm

      Hey Lizzie! It should read in the refrigerator, not at room temperature. Thank you for catching that!

    Hi Sally!

    I’ve just stumbled across your website early this morning…it’s now 1:11! Where has the time gone?! Time to get lunch ready!
    I just wanted to say thanks for sharing your cinnamon roll cake recipe with us! Been living abroad in Italy now for over 11 yrs and although the Mediterranean diet is pretty amazing, there are a few cracks in the path that need filling I’ve found, and this recipe will do the job for now as sadly, Cinnabon does not exist here :-(
    Had a read through your Bites of real life and about you and I have to say I’m impressed with what you’ve done in such a short amount of time. Congratulations on your successful 1st cookbook! May you have many more success stories to tell us ;-D

I meant to ask you, can I doubled this recipe to use a 13 inch pan? and when you say the dough can be freeze over night through step 5 do you mean to freeze it already assembled in coils?

    Connie Heideposted May 7, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    What if you made a spread for the filling from the butter, sugar and cinnamon and spread it on? I made this today following the recipe and like others, lost a lot of sugar. It works fine if you sprinkle it on top, but I think I’ll try making a spread for the filling next tome. This tastes just like my homemade cinnamon rolls that I’ve been making for years, but less work, faster and less cleanup. Love it! I make my glaze using softened butter, powfered sugar, milk or cream, and maple flavoring.

    Making this now but I didn’t lose any sugar. If your butter isn’t room temperature it won’t stick as well. I put the butter on like a thin frosting then I sprinkled the sugar on and gently pat the “dry” areas with a flat hand until everything darkened and absorbed into the butter, sprinkling more sugar mix on any areas that needed it until it was covered. Hope that helps!

    Loving this for a birthday cake. Could you tell me approximately how many people this feeds?

    Hi Sally ! Two part question: how far in advance do you think this could be made? and freeze it and defrost it for how long each exactly?? Thanks in advance for your response! I anticipate making this for my groom as a grooms cake, a homemade gesture from me knowing his love of cinnamon rolls :)

    Hey Sally, this looks so amazing! You’re such an inspiration to me now that I am starting my own baking blog! It’s so cool how you’ve made your favourite hobby your career, I’m very much in awe. x

    A suggestion for those who found that they lost too much of the cinnamon sugar mix; whip the butter, sugar and cinnamon together then spread it.

    Made this for Mother’s Day brunch today, had to come back to say thank you! It disappeared as quickly as I cut slices at the table. Everyone raved and wished there was more. My husband asked if I could make one every week for him to eat throughout the week. DELISH!

    Everyone, do yourself a favor and try this!

    Hello Sally,
    I am Maria from Germany. I like it a lot to try new recipes and today I bake this Giant Cinnamon Roll for the first time. And… I couldn’t believe, how easy it is to make such an incredible good one.
    My family, Udo and Magdalena were very surprised about the taste of it. It remembers us the last day in Rochester, MN, last June were we ate ‘Cinnemon Rolls’… We love this really a lot.
    Hearty greetings from us :-)
