There's something magical about the aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls filling your home, especially when they're infused with the natural sweetness of California Raisins and the wholesome touch of cane sugar. In this delightful journey into baking bliss, we'll guide you through the steps of creating heavenly California Raisin Cinnamon Rolls that not only tantalize your taste buds but also bring a touch of golden sunshine to your mornings.


To embark on this culinary adventure, gather the following ingredients:

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • ½ cup cane sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (plus extra for dusting)
  • Filling:
    • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
    • 1 cup packed brown cane sugar
    • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
    • 1 cup California Raisins


Dough Preparation:

  1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk and let it sit for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture, cane sugar, softened butter, salt, and eggs.
  3. Gradually add the flour, one cup at a time, until a soft dough forms.
  4. Knead the dough on a floured surface until it's smooth and elastic.
  5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it, and let it rise until doubled in size (approximately 1 hour).

Filling and Rolling:

  1. Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a large rectangle.
  2. Spread melted butter over the dough, leaving a border around the edges.
  3. Mix brown cane sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle it evenly over the butter.
  4. Sprinkle California Raisins over the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  5. Roll the dough tightly from the long edge, forming a log.

Cutting and Baking:

  1. Cut the log into equal-sized rolls and place them in a greased baking pan.
  2. Allow the rolls to rise for another 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  4. Bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Glaze (Optional):

For an extra touch of sweetness, you can prepare a simple glaze using powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract.


As you pull these golden California Raisin Cinnamon Rolls from the oven, the enticing aroma will transport you to a world of warmth and comfort. Each bite is a heavenly combination of soft dough, sweet California Raisins, and the natural sweetness of cane sugar, creating a breakfast treat that's both indulgent and comforting.
