Cinnamon Rolls

It’s baking time 😊

Hello again everyone, I can’t wait to share some baking recipe I made recently. Actually, I watched some YouTube videos about making cinnamon rolls, I am inspired by Anna Olson videos of making sticky buns or cinnamon rolls, and here I am sharing you the recipe with different version. So let’s start bakiiing!

Preparation time : 2.5 hours

Baking time : 40 – 45 minutes

Ingredients :

Dough :

  • 270gr all purpose flour
  • 105ml milk (I use low fat milk with 2% of fat), heat the milk in pan or microwave until it reach 40.5°C or above body temperature)
  • 25gr sugar
  • 1 medium egg at room temperature
  • 30gr unsalted butter, melted

Topping sauce :

  • 50gr icing sugar
  • 5tbsp milk
Heat the topping ingredients in medium heat pan until it becomes sticky
Set aside

How to Make

  • Put milk, melted butter, sugar and dry yeast into a bowl first, then add egg, flour and salt. Combine all ingredients using mixer or by hand
Mix in a bowl
Knead until smooth
  • It is much easier and faster to use standing mixer, or by hand it will take 15 – 20 minutes to knead. You will get smooth dough just like in the picture, then put in a bowl that has been spread with cooking oil, wrap it, then set aside for 90 minutes in warm temperature. Let the dough rise.
After 90 minutes, it will doubled up
  • After 90 minutes, the dough will rise. Turn your dough onto floured surface, and also prepare your rolling pin
Put some flour so it doesn’t stick
  • And start rolling your dough into rectangular shape about 35x40cm.
Rolling the dough
  • Then start to use the filling ingredients by spreading the melted butter onto the dough evenly until it covers the dough surface.

  • Put the dough into prepared pan, then cover it with plastic wrap or towel, let it rise for an hour
Place in prepared pan
Let the dough rise for an hour
  • After risen for an hour, release the plastic wrap and preheat the oven to 175°C, bake the cinnamon rolls for 40 to 45 minutes.
  • If you want to serve it in the morning, you can keep it in the fridge and bake the cinnamon rolls in cold oven with 175°C setting temperature for 45 minutes. Make sure you always check the oven so that your cinnamon does not burn. In the first try, I burnt my cinnamon and it became harden.

It’s quite long steps to make this cinnamon rolls, and this was my second attempt to make this cinnamon rolls. As I said that in the first try, I burnt the cinnamon and it became hard to eat. So please make sure to check your oven temperature and your timing. Yes it needs plenty of time to make this recipe but it is quite fun and refreshing. And I always enjoying the process.
