Best cinnamon rolls in Dublin

    Spent quite a bit of time in the states and always fondly remember Cinnabons. Is there anywhere in Dublin that makes our right delicious fresh cinnamon rolls?

    And anyone heard the rumour of a franchise of Cinnabon opening here?

    I’ve never had a good cinnamon roll outside of North America. Cinnabon is something i dream off, and when I lived in Canada, my motivation for going across the border was usually about 50% Cinnabon.

    When I moved to the UK, there was a Cinnabon franchise in my city but it closed very soon after I arrived, and I haven’t seen once since.

    Starbucks do a cinnamon bun, but it’s a very poor substitute for a Cinnabon.

    Some of the craft bakers do glorious Morning Buns. Bread 41 makes a great version and supplies also to lots of cafes.

    They’re not cinnamon rolls, but more like croissant/flaky pastry baked into a bun with cinnamon & brown sugar.

    Yankee Bakers do amazing cinnamon buns, the closest I've had to Cinnabon. They have a market stall and I've got them before at the bushy park market in Terenure.

    They're reeeeeally easy to make. I can't stand cinnamon but my brother has a mild obsession with Cinnabon so I made them for him a couple of times while he was undergoing treatment for a pretty bad illness. Just Google "Clone of a Cinnabon" and you'll get loads of recipes.

    Was just going to say make your own, but be careful you'll get about 12 in a batch and they are so delicious you will want to eat them all :)

    Insomnia now have a traybake that similar-ish to Cinnabon, bar being a traybake

    I make them too and the biggest risk is as mentioned that you will eat way too many!

    I make the dough in the evening, leave overnight in the fridge, assemble in morning and pop straight into a cold oven, as it heats to required temp it gives them the second rise they need.

    I'm not a fan of kneading and am useless at it so this system suits me best as no waiting around for them to rise as such as it happens overnight.

    They can also be frozen very successfully after stage one to be cooked later or frozen already cooked.
