C is for Cinnamon Rolls

When I embarked on the A-Z of baking journey, there was one alphabet I was crystal clear on. C is for Cinnamon Rolls. I adore Cinnamon rolls and the fact that I love Cinnamon as a spice should be pretty evident from the name of the blog itself and for those who don't know yet. The name is a play on Cinnamon the spice, sinful goodies and my name Monika :)

Ingredients

For the dough
Yeast
10 gm
Pupose flour
1 kg all
Honey
1 tsp
Salt
1/2 tsp
Water
300 ml
Milk
300 ml
Olive oil
2 tbsps
For the filling
Butter
1/2 cup
Sugar
3/4 cup
Cinnamon powder
2 tbsps
Cream cheese (optional but highly recommended)
1/3 cup
Rum soaked raisins (plain will work as well)
1/2 cup
Egg for coating (optional)

Steps

  1. Mix together the ingredients of the dough and either by hand or using your stand mixer, knead the dough well. If kneading by hands it will take anywhere between 8-12 minutes till the dough is smooth and elastic
  2. Cover the dough with a damp kitchen towel and let it raise for an hour or so till double in size.
  3. Once the dough is double, tap the dough down to release all the gas and roll it in about 1/2 inch thick rectangle.
  4. Spread a very thin layer of cream cheese followed by melted butter. Even sprinkle cinnamon sugar (sugar + cinnamon mixed together) and spread the raisins
  5. Roll the rectangle like a log and cut into 3/4 inch pieces. Line them in a greased baking tray and set aside for proofing for 45 minutes.
  6. Pre heat the oven to 190C
  7. Glaze the cinnamon rolls with eggs (optional but will give you a glaze like in first picture) and Sprinkle some more cinnamon sugar on top (again optional but I like the color it gives)
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes till the rolls are golden brown in color
  9. Serve warm
