With everyone talking about that tiktok viral video of dumping heavy cream over frozen cinnamon rolls, I thought how would it be over homemade? We tried it and we were not disappointed. It made the rolls so moist and delicious! Give these a try.



Cinnamon Rolls with Heavy Cream


Roll Dough

  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1 cup milk, scalded then cooled to room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp. melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3.5 – 4.5 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup honey


  • 6 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, for the pan


  • 1 Stick butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream



Cinnamon Rolls with Heavy Cream


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine yeast, warm water, and 1 Tbsp. sugar. Let the yeast get bubbly. 
  2. Place milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Allow cooling slightly.
  3. Melt the butter in the microwave and set aside.
  4. Add the sugar, honey, milk, and 3 1/2 c. flour to the yeast mixture. Beat together for two minutes.
  5. Add butter, eggs, and salt. Stir well.
  6. Add the rest of the flour a half a cup at a time until the dough begins to separate from the sides of the bowl. Let it rest for 3-5 minutes.
  7. Knead the dough in the bowl for 5 minutes. If the dough seems sticky to you add a tablespoon of flour at a time until it reaches a good consistency.
  8. Remove dough from the bowl and grease the inside of the bowl.
  9. Place the dough back in the bowl and flip it around till the entire outside is nice and shiny with the oil.
  10. Loosely cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to double in size, which takes a little over an hour and sometimes longer in my cold house.
  11. Once the dough has doubled, smash it down with your fists for about a minute. 
  12. Roll the dough out to about a 1/4 inch thick. Into about a 14×16 inch rectangle. 
  13. In a small bowl whisk together the cinnamon and brown sugar for the filling.
  14. Spread the softened butter on the dough leaving 1/2 inch on each side. Then sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on the dough and roll the dough up tight. 
  15. Then cut into even rolls. Makes about 12 or 13. Since I’m still working on my cinnamon roll skills. Place in a buttered 9×12 inch pan.
  16. Then pour in the heavy cream around the rolls, then cover with plastic and let rise in the fridge overnight. 
  17. Next morning, pull the rolls out and let them rise for 2 hours at room temperature. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375.
  18. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. 
  19. While the rolls bake, make the frosting. Put the ingredients for the frosting into the bowl and using a hand mixer whisk until smooth.
  20. Once rolls are done baking let cool for about 15 minutes and then top with the yummy frosting.
