I know many moms are already overwhelmed with cooking meals,baking doesn't seem to even be an option but its okay to clean out your ovens,one or two bakes will make everyone at home happy. Here's my cinnamon roll,its a yummy winner. I tried the chocolate spread as a second variant and it was goood. Another variant i make has apple pie filling.
Here is the recipe.Its not as complicated as it sounds or may seem. The recipes vary,some add more butter,eggs,sugar but this one works perfectly for me.Take it a step at a time. I hardly put frosting on mine also because its so sweet already.
- 3 cups of flour (I double the recipe most times,set some flour aside forr the work surface when rolling your dough)
- 2 teaspoons of yeast
- 3 tablespoons of sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1.5 cup cold butter
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees centigrade for about 40 minutes. if it starts browning too quickly you may need to cover with a foil or reduce the heat. I usually brush it with butter some minutes before finally bringing them out of the oven.
The smell that wafts through the kitchen and the house just announces the cinnamon rolls.
Enjoy! Do let me know how it goes.
