The Best Cinnamon Rolls in the World

I say they’re the best cinnamon rolls in the world – but maybe I’m biased. Still, I’ve probably made this very recipe at least 100 times, if not more. As a cinnamon-roll lover, I’d like to think I know what I’m talking about. When I did markets, these were the first item to sell out, and the one that people would come for. I’ve had people pre-order full trays of them, and they were briefly sold in a cafe in Manchester. They are good. Trust me.

You shouldn’t need more convincing – cinnamon rolls are absolutely delicious, and you should have more of them in your life. So let’s get started.

This particular type of bread is flat, and a common Levantine Arabic food. It can have various types of toppings, from cheese to lamb to fried eggplant.
