Easy Cinnamon Rolls (Korvapuusti)


Amazing and incredibly delicious cinnamon rolls. Treat your loved ones with these gluten containing cinnamon rolls. They are yummy but I can’t have them. Why am I posting a recipe that has gluten? Because these go back to my childhood! I grew up and was surrounded by these on a weekly basis. The smell of them making still brings back memories from my childhood, and I make these for my son and his children when they come and visit. They love them too.

I am working on making these cinnamon rolls with gluten free flour and hope to post the recipe soon. I might have difficulty making them look this good with gluten free flour, but let’s hope they will look somewhat like this.

I love the way these rolls look.

Prep time


Cooking time






  • 2 packages active dry yeast 4 1/2 teaspoons

  • 2 cups lukewarm milk

  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar to proof the yeast

  • 1 stick butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon cardamom

  • about 5 cups unbleached flour

  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

  • 1.4 cup melted butter

  • 1.4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg white, lightly blended


  • Add yeast to 1 cup of lukewarm water and add the sugar. Set aside for about five minutes.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the butter, sugar, salt, and cardamom to the 2 cups of warm milk and beat for 30 seconds, using the beater blade. Stir in 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture and mix until well combined. Mix in the beaten eggs.
  • Gradually stir in the remaining flour and mix with the dough hook for about 10 minutes. Remove dough from the bowl and place on a lightly floured counter. Knead by hand, add a little flour if the dough is still sticky. Knead until dough feels satiny and smooth.
  • Divide the dough in half. With a rolling pin, roll one half of the dough into a rectangular shape, about 22 X 13 inches. Spread dough evenly with half of the softened butter, about 2 tablespoons. Sprinkle dough with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Roll the dough starting from one side until all of it is rolled and then cut it into about one inch slices. Place the slices on a baking sheet and let them rise.
  • Turn the oven on to 350 degrees. Once the cinnamon rolls have risen, using a brush, brush the egg white on top and sprinkle with a little sugar before placing them in the oven. Bake until done. Serve.
