Cinnamon Rolls with Meringue Filling

These are not the classic rolls you are used to. But let me assure you, these Cinnamon Rolls with Meringue Filling are just INCREDIBLE… sweet, smooth, and very delicious.

The difference between these and the classic ones is the dough which is made with more butter that makes it very soft and the filling is made with whipped egg whites and cinnamon which creates quite a crispy top and soft, smooth interior. The aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls makes them irresistible. Served with fresh coffee turns into a delicious treat for breakfast or any time of the day.

Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 3 cups (375g) flour
  • 7 oz (200g) butter, cut in small cubes
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/3 +1 tbsp (100ml ) milk
  • 10 g fresh yeast (1 tsp of active dry yeast)


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup (120g) powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) vinegar

  • Dissolve the fresh yeast in the milk. In a medium sized bowl mix well the butter with flour. Add the egg yolks and the milk with yeast and mix until well blended. Knead well, cover with plastic  and refrigerate for about 1 hr to let the yeast develop.
  • Whip egg whites until foamy with a mixer and gradually add the sugar, the vinegar and vanilla extract whipping the whole time. Finally incorporate the cinnamon. Split the whites in 3.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 (350F).
  • Cut the dough into 3 equal pieces. Sprinkle flour on the working surface. Using a rolling pin roll out each piece into a rectangular about 12 inches (30 cm) long, 10 high.

  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely browned.
