10 Best-Ever Cinnamon Roll Recipes in One Place
Making cinnamon rolls this weekend? I gathered all of my favorite cinnamon roll recipes in one place so you can easily figure out which recipe to make!
We have traditional cinnamon rolls.
No-yeast cinnamon rolls.
Giant cinnamon rolls.
Overnight cinnamon rolls.
Basically, every cinnamon roll recipe you’ve ever wanted is right here!
And please don’t ask me to choose a favorite. 🙂 They’re all here because they are best-ever in their own right (and you’ll see from reading the comments on each recipe that there are devout followers and fans of each recipe for different reasons!).
But…I will say that this weekend, I’m opting for the no-yeast biscuit cinnamon rolls. They are life-changingly good.

I normally make your buttermilk biscuit ones. They are our favorite, but my grocery store had no buttermilk, so we made Cherly’s famous cinnamon rolls yesterday. Yummy! I must admit I still love how quickly you can make the buttermilk ones. So quick and easy, but we also loved Cherly’s too! We had them for an afternoon snack as I just started them in the late morning. Yummy! Thanks for sharing these all in one place!
I’ve made at least half of these recipes, all delicious! I went for Gloria’s for this weekend and we loved them as usual! I do have a question though, I’ve made the frosting with the maple extract only once cuz we didn’t love the maple, so I just do all vanilla extract. Maple donuts are my favorite so I figured to use up the maple extract I’d make homemade maple donuts but I didn’t love it either, it didn’t taste anything like the stores maple donuts. So… I’m wondering if it’s maybe the brand or type of maple that’s causing my not loving the maple flavor at home. I have the McCormick brand maple extract, what kind do you use?
Hi Misty, yes, I definitely think that can be it. My husband loves maple donuts but hasn’t loved some of the maple flavoring I’ve used over the years. My favorite is the pure maple extract from King Arthur Flour, it’s a little spend but worth if if you want that really good maple flavoring. Otherwise, I’ve found most of the other grocery store brands (mapleine and McCormick and others) taste about the same.
Thank you. Perfect Cinnamon rolls for us this morning. I have a question, we have an oven that I can choose convection or surround bake. Do you have a convection oven and your thoughts?
Hi Pam, I have an oven that has convection or standard bake functions. I like to use convection when baking cinnamon rolls because I think it helps bake them more evenly (although I usually decrease the baking temperature by 25 degrees if using convection).
I used your best cinnamon rolls recipe and they were so yummy (even though I had the cut rolls in the fridge overnight, so some of the filling oozed to the bottom – I kind of liked the caramelized crunch it gave). I also made your chili (working with which ingredients we have on-hand here) and the cheesy biscuits. Everything turned out great. Thanks for so many delicious recipes!
Thank you so much, Heather!
I had to laugh when I saw your post today ! I LOVE cinnamon rolls more than life itself! Really I do. But my first thought when I saw this was,, “I think Mel is trying to kick the Coronavirus’s butt with as many cinnamon rolls as possible “ ! As if you could get it outta here if you slammed it with cinnamon rolls!
I plan on making one of these recipes tomorrow, (probably Cheryl’s) to enjoy during conference ! Thanks for slapping all of us in the face with cinnamon rolls lest we forget how much we LOVE them!
I literally came to your site today looking for a recipe for cinnamon rolls haha. Thanks for having this list!!
I’ve got the buttermilk ones rising right now! Can’t wait to eat them tomorrow morning!
We are making your orange sweet rolls! They are hands down my favorite, even over amazing cinnamon rolls which I also love!
Love orange rolls! I’m actually working on an updated post for those bad boys!
I just made cinnamon rolls today. I loved your honey oat dinner roll recipe so much that I used some honey and oats in my normal cinnamon roll recipe. They turned out as a delicious movie night treat and everyone is looking forward to having the rest for breakfast.
What a great idea, Rosie!
Which is your favorite??
Haha, can’t tell if you’re serious or not (based on my mention of this in the post)…but I really can’t choose a favorite. I love all of them for different reasons. 🙂
Yummy! Such a hard decision!! Which one to try?! Hmmmmm…. thanks for sharing Mel! Have a good weekend!
Thanks, Renee – you, too!
Questions: So for your family’s GC weekend, you make cinnamon rolls for a specific meal, is it breakfast or lunch or dinner? What other dish/entre do you serve them with for a breakfast and for a dinner?
I’m going to make one of your recipes, but can’t yet decide which one!
Thanks! Happy conference-ing!!!
I usually make them for Sunday morning breakfast. We usually make eggs and a smoothie to serve with them.
I agree! They all are great. The biscuit cinnamon rolls are life changing!
They really are!
Great timing! Making Cinnamon Rolls for Sunday morning ourselves. We used to look forward to staying home for church 2x a year, now I just wish we could go to church. (Or go anywhere….)
Haha. I feel ya.
We LOVE the yummy and easy biscuit cinnamon rolls, and we are making those this weekend, too! They are becoming a General Conference tradition for our family. 🙂
Thanks for sharing all of your wonderful recipes, Mel! We sure appreciate you!!!
Thank you so much, Janna!!
