Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon roll is one of my favourites and I love the aroma that fills the house when baking these rolls.Whenever I pass by "Cinnabon", I would stop by and watch them rolling and making the rolls.There are few variations like adding raisins,nuts etc but I tried the simple version.

Process of making cinnamon rolls

rolled cinnamon rolls before and after baking

Sweet Cinnamon Rolls

  • Take the yeast in a bowl.Add warm milk and sugar.Mix well and keep it in a warm place. After 10 mins the yeast solution should appear frothy.
  • Take All purpose flour,salt,sugar,baking powder,melted butter in a bowl.Add the yeast solution slowly and mix to get a sticky dough.
  • Dust some flour on a clean counter, place the dough on it and knead well.Apply oil and keep it in a bowl covered with a wet kitchen towel.
  • After 1 hr the dough would have doubled in size. Place it on a clean counter and punch down to remove air. knead for few minutes.
  • Dust some flour on the counter and roll to a large rectangle of 1/4 inch thickness and brush some melted butter on the top.
  • Mix brown sugar and cinnamon powder and spread this mixture evenly on the rolled dough.Roll it from the long end to form a log. Pinch the edges to seal well.
  • Cut them into even sized rolls using a knife or a clean thread.
  • Arrange it on a baking pan lined with parchment paper,cover and let it rise again for about 45 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Apply melted butter on top of the rolls and bake at 180 °C for 18-20 mins till the top turns slightly golden in colour.
For the glaze:
  • Mix Icing sugar,melted butter,vanilla in a bowl.Add little warm water/milk and mix well to get pouring consistency.keep aside.
  • Once the rolls are done,take the pan out of the oven and pour the glaze evenly on all the rolls and serve warm.
  • Once cut into rolls,it is preferable to keep covered till it doubles in size(atleast 45 mins to 1 hr) but I let them rise only for 30 mins this time as I had to bake them immediately.
