A few Notes before you begin: 

  • Use a large bowl..Thank me later.
  • Bring your eggs, buttermilk, and whole milk to room temperature before starting.
  • Your butter should be melted, but not piping hot! (You dont want to kill your yeast)


  • You can use more or less strawberry extract or oil depending on how much of a strawberry taste you desire. Oils tend to be stronger than extract, so remember a little goes a long way. 
  • I usually let my dough rise in the oven. I turn the oven to the lowest temperature (about 200F for me) then I turn it off. Let cool for a few minutes before putting my dough in to rise.
  •  Heavy Cream is OPTIONAL. I prefer soft gooey rolls, much like Cinnabon so I use the heavy cream.
