The Kosher Hub’s Challah Cinnamon Rolls Recipe 

Ingredients: For the dough:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

For the cinnamon filling:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.

  2. Add the warm water, warm milk, eggs, and melted butter to the dry ingredients. Mix with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together.

  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic.

  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour, until doubled in size.

  5. While the dough is rising, prepare the cinnamon filling. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the softened butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until well combined.

  6. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down and turn it out onto a floured surface. Roll the dough out into a rectangle about 16×20 inches in size.

  7. Spread the cinnamon filling evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.

  8. Starting from one of the long edges, tightly roll the dough up into a log. Pinch the seam to seal.

  9. Use a sharp knife or bench scraper to cut the log into 12 equal slices.

  10. Place the slices into a greased 9×13 inch baking dish, cut side up. Cover with a clean towel and let them rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 30 minutes, until puffy.

  11. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).

  12. Brush the rolls with the beaten egg.

  13. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the rolls are golden brown and cooked through.

  14. Let the rolls cool for a few minutes in the baking dish before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
