Me and my very dear friend once made cinnabons years back (separate homes, but at the same time lol), and recently we have really wanted to make cinnabons again...so here is a delicious recipe for cinnabons to try.
  1. In a large bowl, place the milk, sugar, butter, yeast, baking powder and salt and use an electric whisk to mix for 2 minutes
  2. Add the flour and dream topping and fold the mixture manually
  3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes (this can get quite tiring but do not quit! Take this opportunity to put all your stress onto this dough lol)
  4. Place the dough into a greased large bowl, cover and leave to rise for one hour
  5. Place the dough onto a clean surface, and roll it out to form a rectangle of an approximate size of 40 x 30 cm
  6. Spread the butter over the surface of this rectangle
  7. In a separate small bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon together, then sprinkle evenly over the buttered rectangle
  8. Gently roll the dough as if you are forming a swiss roll, keeping your rolls as tight as possible
  9. Cut the ends off the cinnamon roll, then divide the cinnamon roll into around 12-14 even slices. Place them flat and spread out onto a tray lined with baking paper
  10. Cover with cling film and leave to rise for a further 30 minutes
  11. Place into the oven on 180 degrees Celsius for 13-15 mins (keep an eye on them, I would say mine could have done with 1-2 mins less in the oven)
  12. Meanwhile, make the topping by whisking together the cream cheese and condensed milk
  13. Remove the cinnabons from the oven and place some topping over each one whilst they are still warm, then serve

You may wish to cut the cinnabons a little thicker to give them a more professional look. Other than that, cinnabons will be yummy in any shape or size! Enjoy :)
