These cinnamon rolls are baked in muffin tray thus the kids call them cinnamon roll-muffins lol They are best served warm.
Step 1: Dough and Filling
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) water
a dash of salt
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) white sugar
1 (.25 ounce or 1 tbsp) package instant yeast
raisins as needed
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (4 tbsp) margarine, softened
3/4 cup milk
3-4 tbsp of sugar
2-3 tbsp of softened margarine
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in margarine; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; beat well. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.
- Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together sugar, cinnamon, softened margarine.
Step 2: Method
Roll out dough into a 12x9 inch rectangle. Spread dough with margarine/sugar mixture. Sprinkle with raisins. Roll up dough and pinch seam to seal.
Cut into 12 equal size rolls and place cut side up in 12 lightly greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), bake rolls for 20 minutes, or until browned.
