26 Feb2010


Posts have been slow on the blog lately. Sister is in town and we are extremely busy, zipping here and there, taking two quick trips to the province, and out for the next few days, so that’s why I seem distracted. But I thought I would do a quick post on these utterly stunning cinnamon rolls that my sister just whipped up together with the cook… If you have never experienced the smell of baked goods with lots of butter and cinnamon in your own home, you have missed one of life’s most memorable yet economical pleasures. The rolls have a rich dough with lots of butter and eggs, light but not airy, coated in caramelized butter, sugar and cinnamon (and raisins and nuts if you so desire) with crisp edges and sticky bottoms that make the perfect late afternoon merienda with coffee, tea or a diet coke. :)


We are still working on the recipe, but I thought I would post this teaser anyway. Up top, rolls just minutes out of the oven with a totally unnecessary additional pat of butter. In the second photo, fresh out of the oven, the crisp tops of the cinnamon rolls rest for a couple of minutes before being inverted to show off the caramelized sugar and cinnamon mixture below…


This pan was chock full of walnuts and raisins, while other pans were just plain…


Foil tins make browning the bottoms a little harder, but these still looked and tasted spectacular. The crew were totally in awe. In awe. And took pans and pans worth of cinnamon rolls home. And sister even stepped out to the “parlor” somewhere in between to get the works… :) The reason I have never made these before? I didn’t have the recipe! Sister has always been generous with her recipes, but before we bother to write it out and test it again, I think you need to convince her that enough of you out there are actually going to try and make it, if only for the wonderful smells that will permeate through your home. So here’s the deal — leave me (and sister) a comment if you WANT the recipe. If we manage to get to 100 folks over the next couple of days, you may just convince sister to sit down and write the recipe for me to post on the blog next week :)

    MM’s Sister, may we have a copy of the recipe? Pretty please? With cinnamon and sugar on top. :-P

    What more lethal presence than sister´s to undermine your diet goal. On the other hand, would like to have the recipe. Her recipe for panetone turned out better than that of the Italian baker.

    Sister please! I love cinnamon rolls, and someday if I have an oven, I promise to make them!!! As in! :)

  11. Rowi says:

    Dear MMs Sister,

    Thank you for sharing the lovely cinnamon rolls to MMs readers.
    The smell of cinnamon mixed with sugar and butter is really a gratifying homey experience – this combination of smells has been used to attract would-be flat buyers in Stockholm.

    The Swedish cinnamon buns, classified here as coffee breads (yeasted pastries) although share common fillings with the cinnamon rolls that are perhaps of American origin, in that these are less sweet, use a lot of ground cardamom seeds in the filling and have no sweet sticky glaze. Instead “pearl” sugar and/or almond flakes are used as toppings.

    I’ve grown accustomed to these buns after having lived here for more than a decade and it’s quite addicting, even other Europeans love them – must be the cardamom??

    Cheers and enjoy Manila!

  20. ragamuffin girl says:

    WANT WANT WANT! Love cinnamon rolls and hate the ones that are dry and chewy with too much cream cheese topping to disguise how bad they are! I get my fix here in HK from Little Mermaid Bakery in CitySuper IFC, where the Rolls are (yes, with a capital R) are pillow-soft. My only complaint is I want more cinnamon in them, and the nuts would be great as well. Your pictures show me a truly marvelous confection so PLEEEEAAASE Sister share the recipe for diehard cinnamon roll fans like me? THank you!

  23. Miriam says:

    I’m having flashbacks of years back when I used to bake cinnamon rolls at night —- it’s much cooler and relaxing to do the kneading. The best part is the house would smell of cinnamon in the morning. Nice to wake up to the smell of cinnamon and brewing coffee. If only we could bottle the scent of good old memories . . . . . Why is it never the same when you try to replicate?

    I could use the recipe because I love cinnamon rolls. I have a niece who bakes them at least once a week and they are yumy. My niece got accepted in Princeton for her doctorate last fall so she doesn’t make it any more unless she home for a vacation. I love the smell of those cinnamon rolls when I walk in to their home with a freshly brewed coffee for breakfast. She calls me when she makes them and it is worth the drive (a 20 minutes drive).

    Hello MM. I NEED THIS RECIPE. Let me tell you why. If there is one thing, one that my husband loves and if I do bake it for him, i know he’ll love me for life (oh, he already does) it’s cinnamon rolls. Wherever we go, if he sees a cinnamon roll, he will test it. To this day, he has not found one that he is happy with. So, please, share your recipe. The pictures are so enticing, I really hope you send it very soon. I look forward to hearing the good news! Thank you in advance.

    Feb 27, 2010 | 2:00 am

  94. Cindy S. says:

    Oh I forget to add, the one recipe that was close to what my husband was looking for was the cinnamon rolls my eldest sister, Susan use to bake. However, she passed away just recently. I looked through her recipe notebook but I have not found the recipe. I know this one will be exactly what he’s looking for. Thanks, MM>

    I’m a lifelong fan of these babies but I’ve yet to find my perfect cinnamon roll here in Manila. I’ve sampled most shops selling these around the city I think..from hotels to the popular chains to corner bakeries. I haven’t found that cinnamon roll yet. But maybe your recipe is IT. If it is, I’d gladly have my oven stamped with the scent of cinnamon the rest of its dear life.

    Mr MM and sister
    Please share Thank You.Now can I ask 13 times to make it 100.
    I think it is not legit.Just trying sakaling makalusot.
    What brand of flour do you use? I’ve tried a brand bought from
    a chain grocery store,very disaapointed x3, something extra
    inside the bag.Alive and crawling! So I usually bring home
    a bag of flour.

    My husband has fond memories of these from his childhood. When we asked his mother to make it, she just bought frozen dough. We were a bit disappointed. We would like to make this and we do like our cinnamon roll to be soft and gooey. So, post the soft & gooey recipe of this sinful delight ASAP. We are looking forward to it.

  117. rosemarie says:

    yummy. Looks so delish. I had attended a class by Heny Sison 10 yrs ago- her recipe is just awfully great – so yummy and so mouthwatering. just as all her other recipes. It had whipped butter instead of plain butter. I long to bake her cinnamon again but today the snow is just nasty- hired a couple to clean up the foot of snow in my driveway. Grabe – tumigas na sa kapal! Good thing – spring is behind the corner so maybe i can do my mise en place for the cinnamon buns. waiting for your recipe. thanks .
    ps. twenty yrs ago whilst working in cavite as a resident – there was this guy who baked the best cinnamon buns. but i forgot his name. it was in cavite city. my memory is dwindling w age but the taste of those cavite cinnamon buns is so vivid in my memory – as if i just had it today. yummy.

    MM and Sister: Count me in! I know this will be a good one since I have been baking your ensaimada recipe and have impressed family and friends with it, in fact, since it is the best tasting ensaimada I have ever made, I threw away my other tried and tested recipes which were good but not as delicious as yours. I don’t diet on the weekend so i will surely be making this one weekend. I’ll be waiting! Yum yum!

  157. zena says:

    We used to make these at home in Manila and I soo agree that there is nothing like the smell of baking bread with cinnamon. The moment it’s cool enough to handle, we flip it over and grab the corner. =) No more additional butter. Just lots in the inside along with the cinnamon sugar. My momn always added crushed pineapple to the bottom along with raisins and walnuts. I am here in the states now so no recipe. =( I need one!

They are coming back to the country in a couple of months and I would like to surprise them with a home filled with the smell of baking cinnamon rolls from my brand new oven.

    P.S. my mom would go NUTS over these rolls, especially if it’s full of walnuts on the bottom. Must get lots of coffee too…

    I know it’s way past the 100th mark already but I like to add… me too!!! Would love this for merienda on one of our get togethers. Could this be placed in the freezer prior to baking, so that I can just pop it in the oven an hour before afternoon tea? That way, I can make it in advance and not mixing and preparing them when friends are here. Thanks in advance MM and sister for sharing the recipe.

    Mar 2, 2010 | 2:36 pm

    These look like Sticky Buns more than Cinnamon Rolls….a distinction my grandmother from Philadelphia was always quick to point out. Whatever the name, they look wickedly delicious!

    I love cinnamon rolls! Please share your recipe because mine is difficult to make and yours looks better and probably tastes better too!
    You see, my recipe was given by a professional baker so it’s complicated to make and I think it needs the right kitchen equipment to be just perfect. When I made it, the dough was a bit tough.
