Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls – quick and easy cinnamon rolls that are perfect for the holidays. Eggnog are both in the dough and in the glaze!
Welcome to Day Three of Christmas Week. This event is hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Susan of The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen. We hope to inspire you to break out those holiday sprinkles and get your bake on!
Earlier this week I talked about as a child my family tradition was to have French toast for Christmas breakfast. So I updated that recipe to a fun Eggnog French Toast. As an adult, our new tradition is to have cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning. Today I am updating that to a fun Eggnog Cinnamon Roll! I am seriously in love with the flavor of eggnog in baking and sweet treats. So is my 9 year old, so I have someone to make them for!
These Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls are ready in less than an hour, so you don’t have to spend a ton of time in the kitchen making them. No yeast is involved, so they are perfect for anyone to make! I adapted one of my favorite cinnamon roll recipes to make these. Super easy, and so much great flavor. I used eggnog in the glaze as well, so you get tons of great nutmeg and eggnog flavor. Be sure to add this to your breakfast menu this holiday season!
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 Tbls butter, , melted and cooled
- 21/2 cups (121/2 oz) flour
- 2 Tbls sugar
- 11/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 11/4 cups eggnog
- 6 Tbls butter, , melted and cooled
- 2 Tbls butter, , softened
- 2 Tbls eggnog
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt 1 stick of butter in a bowl, let cool (use this bowl for each step when you need melted butter).
- Brush 1 Tbls of butter into a 9 inch cake pan. Set aside.
- Prepare the filling. In a bowl combine brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Add 1 Tbls melted butter. Using your fingers or a fork stir together until is feels like wet sand. Set aside.
- Prepare the dough. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a liquid measuring cup mix together eggnog and 2 Tbls melted butter. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon, until everything is combined (about 30 seconds). The dough will be very rough. Turn onto a floured surface and kneed until just smooth (handle as little as possible for flaky rolls).
- Using your hands, press the dough into a 12x9 inch rectangle. Brush with 2 Tbls melted butter. Sprinkle the filling evenly over the dough, pressing gently into the dough. Be sure to leave about 1/2 in border around the edges. Using a scarper loosen the dough from the counter, and roll (starting from the long side), into a tight cylinder. Pinch to seal. Using a sharp knife, cut into 8 equal pieces. Slightly flatten each piece of dough, to try to keep the filling in. Place 1 roll in the center of the prepared pan, and arrange the other 7 around it. Brush with the last 2 Tbls of butter.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Allow the rolls to rest for 5 minutes before frosting.
- Meanwhile, prepare the icing. In a small bowl mix all of the icing ingredients together. You can adjust the eggnog and sugar level to get the desired consistency. Drizzle the icing over the cinnamon rolls.
- Remove from pan to serve.
