Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

cinnamonrollfor father’s day I wanted to prepare something special for hubby. one of his favourite sweet are cinnamon rolls. i could have bought them from our favourite bakery, but instead i decided to use my kitchenaid to bake some myself. i went on pinterest and found many recipes but the easiest and quickest was this one. i DID NOT follow the recipe as a first class student would have
INGREDIENTS
dough
¾ cup lukewarm water (+plus 2 tablespoon of water)
2 tablespoons 70% vegetable margarine
2 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon bread quick rise yeast
filling-
1/3 cup granulated brown sugar
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons 70% vegetable margarine
coating
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
cinnamon
in the early hours of Sunday, after feeding AOI she didn’t want to go to bed and I didn’t know what to do, but fortunately i remembered my surprise for hubby. i got out of bed, i wrapped AOI on my bad and began my work as a baker.
as per my usual i didn’t take photo for each stage – my hands were full of flour.
PREPARING THE DOUGH
put water, butter, bread flour, ¼ cup granulated sugar, salt and yeast in a mixer and mix until dough smooth.
Meanwhile: in a small bowl mix cinnamon and granulated sugar.
when dough is complete roll it out with a floured rolling pin on a floured surface into a (rough) 9” square.
spread the 2 tablespoons of softened butter over the dough and top with the cinnamon mixture. roll up the dough tightly. cut into (roughly) 1” slices and place [about 12 rolls] into a lightly greased baking dish. cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour.
Meanwhile: before the hour is up preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit
after the hour is up, remove plastic wrap and bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden. once they are baked, coat cinnamon rolls with powdered sugar and serve.cinnamonrollserve
enjoy.
xoxo, TOI
