Cinnamon roll wreath



This incredibly delicious cinnamon roll wreath is the best breakfast on Christmas Day or any time of the year, with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk. When you bake it, your house will smell amazing all day long. I love the smell of baking❤️.


  • 1 tbs active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2 tbs plain yogurt (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp  ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup softened butter, divided

Egg wash:

  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 vanilla extract

Frosting optional:

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tbs heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs melted butter


  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, with the dough hook attached, add flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Mix to combine.
  2. Add yogurt, water and oil. Knead on medium speed until dough is smooth and does not stick to the walls of the bowl. If the dough still sticky , you could add some more flour.
  3.  Cover with plastic wrap and a clean kitchen cloth and keep the dough in an air-tight container until it doubles in size (approximately 30-45 minutes).
  4. Turn dough onto a floured surface.  Roll dough into a 16×12-in. rectangle.
  5.  Spread with the butter to within 1/2 in. of edges, sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon evenly.
  6. Roll up the dough into jelly-roll, starting with the long side, pinch seam to seal. 
  7. Transfer to parchment paper-lined round pan or 15x10x1-in. baking pan, seam side down. Shape into a ring,  pinch ends together to seal.
  8. Using kitchen scissors, start at outside edge and cut two-thirds of the way through the ring at 1-in. intervals. Separate sections slightly and twist to show filling. 
  9. Cover with kitchen towel, and let rise in a warm place until it doubles in size (about 1 hour).
  10.  Preheat oven to 400F.
  11. For egg wash, in a small bowl, whisk egg yolk, heavy cream and vanilla.until combined. Brush over wreath.
  12. Bake until golden brown. (about 25 minutes)
  13. For glaze, in a small bowl, mix icing sugar, heavy cream and vanilla and spread over wreath if desired.
  14. Enjoy! 😊
