Mom's Good Cinnamon Rolls


I watched mom make these rolls when I was young and have always loved how easy they are to make!

Prep Time:

Total Time:
2 hrs
1 dozen


  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

  • cup white sugar

  • 2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 6 ½ cups all-purpose flour, divided

  • 2 eggs

  • cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and 1/3 cup sugar in warm water. Stir in salt and 2 cups flour. Beat mixture for 2 minutes. Beat in eggs and oil. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.

  2. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon; set aside.

  3. Divide the dough into twelve equal pieces. Take each piece of dough, roll into a log and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place the knots in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until golden.
