Cinnamon Rolls

This is my first attempt to make bread and the end result is awesome !

When I left the dough to raise – it was like falling in love, my heart was beating faster than usual. I was so worried that it won’t raise, and my intention for having a cinnamon roll for breakfast the next morning was only in my dream.

Try this recipe, I could guarantee you that it won’t fail. It worked really well with me, who is an amateur in bread making.

Ingredients :
- 550 g flour
- 25 g fresh yeast , or 8.5 g of dry yeast
- 70 g melted butter
- 210 ml milk
- 75 g sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 pinch salt

- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 200 g brown sugar
- 85 g butter kept at room temperature

Egg Wash:
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbsp milk


Begin the dough
Start by adding the flour, the yeast, the sugar, the salt, the eggs, the milk, and the butter into the mixer. Mix the ingredients on low for 5 minutes until it becomes shiny in appearance. Add about 2 Tbsp more of flour to the bowl and turn off mixer. Now scrape the dough from the hook.

Knead and let the dough rise
Put a little flour inside the bowl and also sprinkle some on your work table. Now knead the dough briefly. Add a little more flour to the bowl and sprinkle a little onto the dough. Return the dough to the bowl. Cover it and let it rise for about 1 hour or until it has doubled its size.

Make the filling
While the dough is rising you can place into a bowl the brown sugar, the cinnamon, and the butter and mix with a spoon until combined. Now set it aside.

Preheat oven to 185°C
You can now set the oven to 185 degrees Celsius.

Roll the dough
Punch the air out of the dough. Sprinkle the work space with flour and place the dough on it. Sprinkle the dough with some flour. Now roll out the dough to a 1/2 cm thickness, making sure there is enough flour to prevent it from sticking to the table.

Shape the rolls
You can now spread the filling on the dough. Carefully roll the dough into a log and cut it into slices of about 3 cm in thickness. Place them on the lined baking tray, leaving enough space for the rolls to rise. Allow them to rise for 15-20 minutes.

Wash and bake
Take your egg wash and using your brush, paint each roll individually. Put the tray into the oven and let them bake for 12-15 minutes.

Cool and serve
Remove the tray from the oven and let the rolls cool a bit. Your Cinnamon Rolls are now ready to serve. They can be eaten cold but they taste especially good warm. Try them both ways!
