Our 90 minute cinnamon rolls with caramel frosting come together in 90 minutes! Soft, cinnamon rolls covered in decadent caramel frosting. Easy to make and a definite crowd pleaser!
Homemade bread is my love language. I love making it for family and friends and I love eating it! These 90 minute cinnamon rolls are a family favorite. The best part? They come together in 90 minutes. That’s right! They DO NOT need to raise for an hour. Yahoo! We are LDS and watch General Conference twice a year that is broadcast from Salt Lake City.
Instead of going to church, we stay home and watch the broadcast from the comfort of our living room.
Making and eating cinnamon rolls has been a conference tradition ever since we were first married. Once I found this recipe for 90 minute dough, it’s been our go-to method!

90 Minute Cinnamon Rolls with Caramel Frosting
Tip: instead of adding butter then sprinkling with sugar and cinnamon, mix all three together and spread over dough. Brown sugar makes these AMAZING.
Bake up until golden brown!
Can you make the cinnamon rolls ahead of time?
Yes! Make the cinnamon rolls up to this point. Where they are ready to go into the oven. Then freeze. When ready to make them, let the cinnamon rolls thaw then bake!
How many 90 minute cinnamon rolls does this recipe make?
This recipe makes a dozen cinnamon rolls with caramel frosting.
Can you use white sugar in the filling for cinnamon rolls?
Or course, but the mixture of butter and brown sugar makes the ooey gooey.
Now for the caramel frosting for the cinnamon rolls. Have you had this before? You’ll be adding it to EVERYTHING.

This is definitely my kind of recipe – super delicious and quick and easy! Thank you for sharing your 90 Minute Cinnamon Rolls with Let’s Do Brunch.
clublake food says
I made this for brunch….oohhh sooo good! It turned out like Cinnabon, or even better in my opinion. It’s fluffy and still taste so good even without icing/frosting. They’re gone in seconds in my family of 5.
Thanks for posting the recipe.
I bookmarked this recipe a few weeks ago & I don’t think the heat will prevent me from making them (& using my oven) for very long…
A question though: being French, I’m not really sure what instant yeast is (translations are not really clear).
Is it the little cube that must be kept in the fridge? Or is it like active dry yeast? Or still something else (white-ish? brown-ish?…)
Thanks for sharing!
The email kept coming back to me so I’ll post this here and hope you see it!
Active yeast will work just fine. Good luck!
Thank you for your speedy answer… which means some people here will have a nice afternoon snack!
Sorry for the email problem, I don’t see why (unless maybe you kept your American habits & didn’t see that it’s hotmail [dot] FR, & not COM… ;-))
Thanks again for sharing such great ideas!
These are terrific! It took me ages to come back & confirm it, but I can tell you they’re going to be regulars around here, especially as they are pretty versatile: I made them with real butter & fresh yeast, & tonight I’m going to try half of them with jam for the filling.
Thanks a million Brandy!
I’ve been making breakfast for dinner once a week since school started back. Tonight I made these rolls. My husband stated, “These may be the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had!” I used 1/3 whole wheat flour and they turned out fantastic. The middle is nice and gooey and the caramel could almost put you in a sugar coma! Thanks for sharing the recipe. It’s definitely a hit in my house.
Line and Jen,
Thank you so much for coming back and posting your thoughts on the cinnamon rolls! We absolutely love them too. Have a great week!
Thank you for sharing this. You’re a great cook and I trust your recommendations! I’ll try this!
Thank you, Lynne! 🙂
