Michael Spicer



  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (will need more for rolling the dough)
  • 4 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ whole milk (any milk will work)
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream

Maple Glaze (Double Recipe for Extra Glaze):

  • 1 ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 ½ ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tbsp Cedarvale Maple Syrup


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cane sugar, ground cinnamon, and salt. 
  2. In a small bowl, microwave the whole milk and butter until melted. Then pour into the large mixing bowl with dry ingredients and mix together. 
  3. Flour a countertop and knead the dough for about 1 minute until it forms a smooth ball. Add more flour if the dough feels sticky.
  4. Cover the dough with a damp towel and let rest for 15min.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then grease a large baking dish. 
  6. Lightly flour your work surface and roll out the dough in a rectangular shape until it is about a ½ centimeter thick. 
  7. In a small bowl, melt the butter for the filling. Also, in a different bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. 
  8. Brush the melted butter on the top surface of the dough. Then layer the brown sugar mixture evenly on the top surface of the dough.
  9. Then, roll the dough up from the long end and cut into 1 ½ wide pieces.
  10. Place the rolls in the large baking dish. Pour the heavy cream over the rolls.
  11. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes.
  12. While the rolls are baking, melt the butter and soften the cream cheese for the maple glaze.
  13. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the melted butter, cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and Cedarvale Maple Syrup.
  14. Once the rolls are baked, pour the glaze over the rolls while they are in the dish. Let cool and enjoy!!
