Homemade cinnamon rolls with cannabutter recipe

One of the best things about homemade cinnamon rolls is that they really aren’t that difficult to make, which means that they work in a pinch for those with or without any prior experience in the kitchen, and if all else fails, you can always keep on scrolling to an even simpler solution that works great for those who have no confidence in their dough making abilities.

Preparation time: 1 hour 50 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Calories: 169

Servings: 12

Dough ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 3 ½ cups flour
  • 1 cup milk (warmed)
  • ½ cup cannabutter (melted)
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons yeast (quick rise)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Filling ingredients

  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cannabutter (melted)
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Icing ingredients

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons cannabutter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Large bowls
  • Whisk
  • Cooking spray
  • Medium bowl
  • Silicone spatula
  • Brush


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F.

  2. Now add the warm milk, melted cannabutter, sugar, and yeast to a large bowl, combine them, and then leave it all to rest for approximately 10 minutes.

  3. Once the milk mixture becomes frothy, pour in the flour and salt, and then combine them until they form an even dough.

  4. Lightly flour a clean surface and transfer the dough, then knead it together for approximately 2 minutes or until smooth.

  5. Take a clean bowl and give it a nice coating of cooking spray before placing the ball of dough into it.

  6. Now roll the ball around until it’s all nicely covered in the cooking oil.

  7. Next, you’ll need to shut the oven off, and then place that bowl into it to rise for approximately 40 minutes.

  8. Retrieve the dough from the oven, and lightly flour a surface so that you can roll the dough out into a thick sheet.

  • In a small bowl, combine the filling ingredients and then use a brush to coat the exposed dough with a hearty dose of cannabutter.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F, and while you wait, rub the brown sugar combination into the melted cannabutter until the sheet is evenly coated.

  • Leave the dough to sit for another 30 minutes, because it still has a little bit of rising to do.

  • Cut the dough into 12 strips and then roll each one up so that they resemble proper cinnamon rolls.

  • Place all the rolls on a baking sheet and cook them in the oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • Combine the icing ingredients while the cinnamon rolls bake, and once they’re done, you can coat them in the sticky goodness, so that they’re ready to serve.

  • No kitchen skills? No problem!

They won’t be quite as thoroughly infused as the from-scratch cinnamon rolls above, but they will definitely hit that craving, and this idea takes most of the work out of the endeavor.
