How to make a giant cinnamon roll to feed all your favorite peeps
First things first, one of the details that we love most about this specific giant cinnamon roll recipe is that the breakfast sweet is made almost entirely from scratch. We don’t know about you, but we’re not too proud to admit that even we select the pre-rolled, canned cinnamon bun variety most of the time.
It’s one of those selections that seems like a time-saver, but it really doesn’t give you the taste-payoff that homemade ones do!
To get started on this humungous cinnamon roll masterpiece, all you need to do is mix together a list of standard baking ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen cupboard. Once that’s finished, you roll out the dough and separate it into small strips so that it can easily be placed in concentric circles around your cast iron skillet. (We love this step because it looks like a rose being molded from clay!)
After you put your cooking cinnamon roll over some heat, you can set off making your soft cream cheese-based sweet glaze which you can delicately drizzle atop your culinary vision once it has cooled.
Is your mouth watering right now, because ours is!
Now that you know the basics, let’s take a look at the rest of the steps required in making this giant cinnamon roll masterpiece via celebrity chef, Gemma Stafford. We promise–you’re family will want you to make one of these bad boys for breakfast every morning!
