For the Dough:

  • 1 tablespoon golden flaxseed meal
  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) cold water
  • ½ cup (120 ml) water
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) milk
  • 4 tablespoons (48 g) granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 package (7 g) instant yeast (2 1/4 teaspoon)
  • 3 1/4 cups (455 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons (42 g) unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling:

  • 1/2 cup (100 g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons (56 g) unsalted butter, softened

For the Frosting:

  • 8 tablespoons (115 g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 oz (113 g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) heavy cream
  • 1 ½ cup ( 180 g) powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 200º F (90º C). When the oven reaches the temperature, turn it off.
  • Grease a 9x13-inch (35 x 24 cm) baking pan with 2 tablespoons of softened butter. Set aside.

Make the Dough:

  • Mix 1 tablespoons golden flaxseed meal and 3 tablespoons cold water in a small bowl until well combined. Let it rest for 5 minutes to thicken.
  • Place water, milk, and 1 tablespoon of sugar in a small bowl; mix to combine—microwave for 1 minute. Sprinkle with yeast, mix, and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  • Place flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl; mix to combine. Make a well in the center. Add 3 tablespoons melted butter, yeast mixture, and flax mixture into the well. Knead with a stand mixer with the paddle attachment for 5 -8 minutes or until the dough is well combined and no longer sticky. Place in a lightly greased bowl and let rest for about 5 minutes.

Make the Filling:

  • Mix together the sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

Form the Rolls:

  • After the dough has rested for 5 minutes, roll it out in a 15 x 9-inch rectangle.
  • Spread 2 tablespoons of the softened butter on top of the dough.
  • Sprinkle sugar-cinnamon mixture all over the dough.
  • Roll dough to form a log. Cut the log into 8 rolls and place rolls in the prepared baking pan. Cover the pan and allow the rolls to rise in the warm oven for 20-25 minutes or until nearly double in size. After the rolls have risen for 20 -25 minutes, take them out of the warm oven.


  • Preheat the oven to 375º F (190º C).
  • Uncover the rolls and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the rolls are lightly golden brown, and the center of the rolls are cooked through.
  • While the rolls are baking, prepare the frosting.
  • Make the Frosting:
  • In a large bowl, combine butter and cream cheese using an electric mixer. Add vanilla extract salt, and heavy cream; continue mixing until well combined. Then add powdered sugar. Beat until combined.
  • Spread the frosting over the rolls.
  • Store in an airtight container.


  • Prepare the dough, roll out, sprinkle with filling, roll into a log and cut into rolls following the recipe's steps above. Arrange rolls cut side down in the baking pan; cover tightly with aluminon foil and store in the refrigerator overnight or up to 16 hours.
  • The next day, preheat the oven to 200º F (90º C) for 10 minutes; turn off the oven. Place rolls in the warm oven, close the oven door, and let the rolls rise until they look slightly puffy, approximately 20 -25 minutes. Take the rolls out of the oven.
  • Then, preheat the oven to 375º F (190º C). Uncover the rolls and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the rolls are lightly golden brown, and the center of the rolls are cooked through (or until the internal temperature reaches 185º F / 90º C. While the rolls are baking, prepare the frosting.
  • Spread the frosting over the rolls and serve immediately.


For smaller rolls, cut the dough into 12 slices and use a 10x15-inch baking pan.
IMPORTANT: Please keep in mind that every oven is different, so the rolls might be just barely browned after 20 minutes in the oven. Their interior temperature at the center should be about 188°F.
Store leftover rolls in an airtight container for 2 days at room temperature. You can also wrap them in plastic wrap and stored them in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze them for up to 1 month.
Reheat leftover rolls in a 300°F oven until warmed through, about 10 minutes. Or microwave for 40 – 60 sec.
