For Dough

  • 1 1/4 cup warm milk
  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 4 tablespoons butter softened

For Filling

  • 1 can Dulce De Leche
  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon


  1. In the bowl of a standing mixer** place the yeast, warm milk, eggs, salt, sugar, butter and 1 cup of the flour. Mix manually with a whisk until combined
  2. Place the dough hook on the mixer and add the rest of the flour. Mix on medium - low speed for 6-7 minutes to knead the dough
  3. Dough should be elastic and not sticky
  4. Grease a bowl with non cooking spray or oil. Place the dough inside the bowl
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic paper and then with a clean kitchen towel
  6. Heat a cup of water in the microwave until it starts boiling
  7. Open the microwave door, move the cup of water to the back and place the bowl with the dough in the middle
  8. Close the microwave door and let the dough proof for 20 minutes (dough should double its size). DO NOT TURN ON THE MICROWAVE
  9. Remove dough from microwave
  10. With a rolling pin, stretch dough into a large rectangle. If dough is sticky, simply add some more flour
  11. Empty the can of dulce de leche into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave dulce de leche for 25-30 seconds or until it becomes smoother and runnier (for easier spreading)
  12. Brush the melted butter all over the surface of the dough
  13. Spread the dulce de leche on top
  14. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the dulce de leche
  15. Roll the dough into a log tightly
  16. Cut into log into 2 inch sections
  17. Grease 2 rectangular baking dishes or 2-3 large cake pans
  18. Place the rolls into the pan. Make sure that the rolls separated so they have enough room to rise. Cover pans with plastic paper and a clean kitchen towel
  19. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and when it reaches temperature turn the oven OFF
  20. Place the rolls inside and let them proof for 20 more minutes
  21. Remove from oven and uncover the rolls.
  22. Preheat the oven 350 Degrees F
  23. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown
  24. Enjoy

Recipe Notes

*Milk needs to be at a lukewarm temperature (around 100 Degrees F). If milk is too hot the yeast will die, if milk is cold or at room temp, the yeast will not activate.
**You can also make these by hand but the kneading times will be longer
***You can proof the dough in the refrigerator overnight and bake the next day
