I just recently made cinnamon rolls from scratch for the first time. And it won’t be the last time either. As always with yeast you have to cross your fingers that it works and the first time I made a dough it didn’t rise but I tweaked my recipe the 2nd time and it was perfect. It’s a pretty common recipe, with few ingredients and most of the time is spent waiting for rise. The results are definitely worth the wait!

Cinfully Good Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients:

Dough
4 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
¼ C. granulated sugar
1 TBSP active dry yeast
¼ C. warm hot milk (very important)
3 eggs, room temp
¾ cup unsalted butter, cut in 12 pieces, room temp.

Cinnamon Butter
1 cup light brown sugar
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of Salt
½ cup unsalted butter, softened

Glaze
1 1/4 C. powdered sugar

3 TBS Heavy Whipping Cream

6 TBS water

 

Instructions:

For Dough: mix flour, salt and sugar together in a medium bowl, set aside. Give your eggs a quick whisk to mix them

In small bowl mix milk and yeast and stir very well with a whisk until the yeast is dissolved in the milk. If it clumps, your milk is too cold. Let sit for 4-5 minutes.

Add yeast/milk mixture to stand mixer bowl with flat paddle attachment and with the speed on 1, add the eggs and mix for 2 minutes

Flip the speed up to 2 and add the flour mixture 1/2 C. at a time. your mixture will be dry flaky, that is ok.

Change the attachment to the dough hook and start adding your butter one piece at a time. Mix this for 4-5 minutes until you get a nice big dough ball. Set ball in a large bowl and cover, and let this rise for 1 1.2 hours.

Cinnamon Butter: Add all ingredients to stand mixer with flat paddle attachment and mix low-med speed until smooth. By smooth I mean ready to spread on bread, this will take 3-4 minutes.

Uncover your dough and work out the air bubbles and turn the dough onto a floured surface.

Roll the dough into an 11X18 rectangle

Spread cinnamon butter evenly on the dough. and yes, you can lick the spatula.

Roll the dough on the long side like a jelly roll, and use a bench scraper to slice your dough. Place rolls on pan and cover with plastic wrap, let rise 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350. Bake rolls for about 35 minutes or when they are golden brown. leave in pan on cooling rack for 5 minutes.

Prepare glaze by mixing the sugar and cream and then the water 2 TBS at a time to thin until it reaches icing consistency. pour on still warm rolls. Admire. Take a photo.

You’re Welcome.
