I’m the mood for something delicious that pairs well with my coffee! So today I would like to share my Coffee Cake Cinnamon Roll recipe with you!  Cinnamon rolls are absolutely delicious; for my family and friends they are definitely considered a treat. I have made the basic cinnamon roll recipe more than a few times now and I think it is definitely time to incorporate something extra relish!

Now I don’t know about you but International Delight and Dunkin’ Donuts are my go to creamer and coffee duo. I love it sooooo much and lucky for me everyone in my house does too! I wanted to make cinnamon rolls but with extra flavor. The best way for me to do this was by adding the coffee to the dough. I think it came out amazing. I really love International Delight because it is the everyday brand that is super delicious. They offer so many flavors that suit everyone: the best part for me is that they are also offered in fat-free and sugar-free options.



Dunkin’ Donuts is consistently a great cup of coffee from store to shelf. It’s available in a variety of flavors and the coffee is rich & smooth: it’s just great coffee!

My inspiration for making these cinnamon rolls came from pure foodie insanity! I kept seeing cinnamon rolls ALL OVER the place and I knew that adding coffee would really kick things up a notch! My family can’t seem to get enough lol. This recipe may seem a bit overwhelming at first but I promise you its not. I think the two most important tips I can give you would be to first make sure to activate your yeast (I add a teaspoon of sugar and luke warm water) the water temperature has to be just right in order for this to happen and second when forming the roll make sure to roll the dough tightly (well as tight as the dough will allow it) this will ensure that the rolls remain together after the cutting process.This recipe makes about 24 rolls if cut correctly. Theres plenty to eat and plenty to share with family and friends. I have to issue a warning though……you may end up eating more than you should so please don’t proceed with this recipe if you are on a diet :)Lets get started on this easy recipe 😉 First you want to activate your yeast. Add your yeast to a bowl with sugar and luke warm water.

Next add your coffee, buttermilk, egg, salt, sugar, and melted butter until well combined. Mix in half of the flour along with activated yeast mixture and vanilla; mix well. Then add the rest of the flour.

In a large bowl add a generous amount of oil to a bowl. Form dough into a ball and add the dough to the oiled bowl. Make sure the dough is covered in oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.



Once dough has risen punch out the air and roll it into a rectangle. Add you butter, sugar, and cinnamon to a bowl. Stir until well combined and add the mixture to the dough. Make sure to spread out evenly.

  • 1/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Melted butter
  • 4 cups Flour
  • Filling
  • 1/3 cup Butter room temperature or melted (I’ve tried it both ways)
  • 3/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp All spice
  • Cinnamon Crumb Topping
  • 1/2 Flour
  • 1/4 Cold Butter
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Brown Sugar
  • Frosting
  • 1/4 cup Cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup Confectioners sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp of Dunkin' Donuts (room temperature)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix yeast, 1 tsp sugar, and luke warm water (about 1/4 cup) to a bowl and stir. Set aside and allow yeast to activate.
  3. In a large bowl mix coffee, milk, egg, salt, sugar, and melted butter until well combined. Mix in half of the flour along with activated yeast mixture and vanilla. Make sure mixture is well combined before adding the remaining flour. Mix until dough forms.
  4. Add a generous amount of oil to a bowl (just enough to oil the bowl) Remove dough from the bowl and form into a ball; add the dough to the oiled bowl and make sure the dough is also oiled. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes.
  5. In a separate bowl mix sugars, cinnamon, and butter together and set aside.
  6. Once dough has risen punch in the middle to release air and roll out onto a floured surface. Roll the dough out into the size of a rectangle (about the size of a slightly bigger that 13×9 inch baking pan).
  7. Spread the butter mixture over the entire surface of the dough. Begin tightly rolling one end of the dough to meet the other forming a cylinder shape or jelly roll.
  8. Cut the dough into 16 pieces and place in a butter baking dish; cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm place for another 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  9. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes.
  10. Glaze
  11. Mix sugar, butter, and cream cheese until well combined. Add coffee a little at a time until a glaze begins to form.
  12. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  13. Add glaze to semi-cooled rolls, plate, and Enjoy!
