Anyways, I have been dieing to share this recipe with you for months and despite its nutritional content and the possible day- after headache, it is defintely worth trying!
Cinnamon rolls are like a small cooking adventure, they need time and dedication and you never know how they are going to turn out until you try them and if they are good, well if they are good… they might become addictive…like they are for me now…but that’s an other story for an other time…
For the dough
* 2 cups flour
* 70 ml milk
* 1/4 vegetable oil
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1/2 pack dry yeast
* 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp baking soda
* Lots of melted butter
* 1/2 cup of sugar
* Lots of Cinnamon
For the frosting
* 1/4 bag of Powdered sugar
* 1 tsp Maple Syrup
* 1/8 cup milk
* 1 tbsp coffee
* 1 tbsp butter
Step 1: Make the Dough
Now add the yeast, mix and wait a minute.
Slowly sift in flour and mix well. (leave about 1/4 cup flour that we will use later)
Let the dough rest for about 1 hour or until it double in size.
Step 2: Make the Rolls
Sprinkle surface generously with flour.
Roll out the dough in a rectangular shape
Melt the butter and pour it on top of the dough. Don’t be stingy, go go go with that butter…it’s all good stuff! I used about 1/2 cup
Now sprinkle the sugar and lots of cinnamon….
Roll up the dough in a long snake shape and cut it into rolls (about 1 inch thick).
Place the obtained rolls in a slightly butter round, foil cake.
Bake at 200 C for about 15-20 min.
Step 3: Make the Frosting and EAT!
Drizzle the frosting on the warm cinnamon rolls, wait till they become one. Enjoy in moderation!
