Don't know since when, my children started to accept cinnamon related foods, keep asking me when I can make for them the apple tart (with cinnamon), cinnamon rolls, pulut twist (also with cinnamon), churros and etc..So i started with this almond cinnamon rolls.

Since this month's "Best Recipes for everyone" event is "almond", so i came out with this cinnamon rolls that filled with almond cinnamon paste and more flaked almonds on top.

How much cinnamon is used? It is not listed in the ingredients.

Hi Ah Chi,
These are such lovely cinnamon rolls.
Love the generous serving of almond flakes on top.
That is the best part of homemade, we can always add more of what we love ;)

Hi is it possible to replace the butter from your bread recipe with olive oil?

Hi, so there's no use of any eggs for this recipe?

Hi Sonia, I baked these rolls today.....the taste was great! But my rolls were hard, dense and they did not expand at all during proofing and baking. I used the S hook to knead the dough. Could this be the problem or was it my yeast was not active? I baked in a 9'x9x'x3' square baking tin. Is 3' height ok? Kindly help because they really tasted great and I would like to bake again. Thanks for your help!

Teo ai li, do it during hot weather so dough easy to be active and rise well.

Hi Sonia

I baked this for weekend breakfast but the next day I felt the roll too thick, is this the correct texture?
