I personally can't get tired of cinnamon, be it coffee, buns, cookies or just rolls. So, I decided to bake some cinnamon rolls with brown sugar. I was getting this cinnamon craving and because of this lockdown, we can not even go to my regular cinnamon cafe which serves amazing cinnamon bakery stuff. So, I though, why not make my own cinnamon rolls 'cause that's how I roll. ;),
1.5 cups - all purpose flour
1/4 tsp - salt
1/2 cup - warm milk
1/8 cup - melted butter
2.5 tbsp - sugar
1.5 tsp - yeast
1 tbsp melting butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon powder
Take a glass, pure luke warm water, add sugar and instant yeast to it.
Mix it well and keep aside for 5 minutes for the yeast to get active.
In a bowl, add flour, salt and yeast mix, melted butter and mix it well.
Knead the dough for 10 minutes on a clean slab so that it develops gluten.
Add a few drops of oil into the same bowl and keep the dough into the bowl for 2 hours, covered with a damp cloth.
Wait for the dough to get double its size, this will take 1.5-2 hrs.
PREPARING THE ROLLS
Take the dough out of the bowl and deflate it using your hands.
On a clean slab, dust some flour and lay the dough flat.
Keep rolling the dough till it becomes flat, roll it out in a rectangular shape.
Glaze butter with a brush on the flat dough so that the filling gets stuck to it.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon powder together in a small bowl.
Sprinkle this powder on the dough evenly.
After sprinkling, roll the dough gently using your fingers.
Cut it into circular slices with a clean knife or a strand of thread.
Prepare your baking dish either by laying a parchment paper or just glazing some oil/butter.
Gently place the rolls on the baking dish and cover it with a damp cloth for another 30 minutes.
PREPARING THE GLAZING
Mix powdered sugar, milk, butter and vanilla essence to make the sugar glazing.
Your cinnamon rolls are going to expand, after 30 minutes, bake the rolls in oven for 30 minutes at 180 degree C.
Serve hot with sugar glazing and a few cinnamon sticks for garnishing.
