  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk - lukewarm not hot
  • 2 eggs at room temperature, lightly whisked
  • 1/3 cup butter softened, but not melted


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter melted


  • 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee hot
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch salt
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar


For the Dough

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, mix together flour, salt, sugar and yeast.
  • Add in the warm milk and eggs.
  • Mix until a ball of dough forms. Continue to knead for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Start to add the butter to the dough. Keep adding one piece at a time until all the butter has been incorporated.
  • Keep kneading for about 4-5 minutes, or until a soft and smooth dough has formed. It should still tacky, but not sticky.
  • Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and let rise until doubled in size.


  • In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon.
  • Melt the butter and set aside to cool slightly.

To Assemble the Rolls

  • Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan and line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size, transfer to a lightly floured surface.
  • Roll dough into a 12x18-inch rectangle (no need to be exact).
  • Brush the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  • Starting from one of the longest sides, roll the dough up into a log. Cut into 12 even pieces (using dental floss is the best way to cut through the dough easily).
  • Place rolls into the prepared baking pan.
  • Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Bake rolls until golden brown, about 30-35 minutes.


  • Add the hot coffee to a small bowl and add butter. Stir until the butter has melted.
  • Stir in the maple syrup and pinch of salt
  • Add the powdered sugar and whisk until smooth.
  • Generously drizzle glaze on warm rolls. Make sure you completely cover the tops and sides. The buns will absorb some of the glaze as they sit and cool.


  • Tips: Double the glaze and apply half while still warm and more after they’ve cooled slightly. You can even make a cream cheese and coffee icing if you like things extra sweet!
