I really hate it when I don't have any pictures to show from the actual making/baking/cooking process. Seriously, I do. I very much enjoy the step-by-step photos I see in other blogs; they're so explanatory and speak so much louder than words.
But.... when I made these cinnamon rolls I had no idea that they'll become a huge success. I focused on the recipe and not photography, therefore I have no step-by-step pictures to show :(
Here I give you today the ingredients and the steps to follow. Hopefully, when I bake these rolls again, I'll take some pictures and edit this post!
Ingredients (20 medium size cinnamon rools)
2 envelopes of dry yeast
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup warm milk
1/2 cup melted butter
pinch of salt
flour, almost 5 cups
For the filling
2 tbsp cinnamon
2 cups brown sugar
For the glaze
- Add yeast to the warm water and let it stand for some minutes to get activated.
- Add the warm milk, melted butter, sugar and the egg and mix well all ingredients.
- Gradually add the flour (with salt) to the milk mixture and make a smooth and elastic dough
- Let it rise until double in size, for about an hour.
- In floured surface roll the dough until 1,5 cm thick.
- Brush the dough with the melted butter.
- Sprinkle the sugar-cinnamon filling evenly and roll the dough.
- Slice the roll in 2-3 cm thick pieces.
- Arrange them in a baking pan, allowing some distance between them.
- Let them rise for about an hour (they now must have touched one another).
- Bake in a 350F (180C) for about 15-20 minutes.
- Prepare the glaze while you let the rolls cool down a bit.
- Drizzle the glaze on the rolls and serve your friends and family!
The smell of cinnamon will fill in the air and the baked sugar will "caramelize" your morning!
