How to prepare some cinnamon rolls .

Today I woke up wanting to prepare a sweet recipe , so remembering my pending subjects a dessert that I love.

Today’s dessert surely sounds like you, the  Cinnamon rolls or cinnamon rolls that I already tried last year in New York. A sweet that triumphs in the Scandinavian countries and the USA. In New York I had the opportunity to enjoy these buns with an intense cinnamon flavor , and the truth is that I loved them.

There is no self-respecting shopping center that does not have among its establishments one, or more, where to find these popular cakes of the United States pastry. Perhaps they are already as famous as the chocolate brownie or their delicious Apple Pie .

It is a sweet and aromatic taste that got me hooked, so that, despite not being anything light, butter is one of its star ingredients, it is almost impossible to be restrained and take only one.

A simple spiral cinnamon bun filled with butter, cinnamon, and sugar with a simply delicious frosting finish. In many cases raisins are added, but they are not necessary to appreciate the flavor and texture of this cake. What are you waiting for? To the kitchen immediately.

Preparation of the dough for cinnamon rolls

  1. We mix all the ingredients for the dough in the same bowl. That is, the flour, 20 grams of crumbled baker’s yeast (or 7 of dry yeast), 50 ml. of warm water, 100 ml. of warm milk, 50 grams of melted butter, vanilla, 1 egg and a pinch of salt.
  2. We knead all the ingredients vigorously for 10 or 15 minutes. Let the dough ball rest in a greased bowl and cover with transparent film.
  3. Let it rest until it doubles its volume for 1 hour 30 minutes.
  4. If we want to ensure the process, our kitchen is not always at an ideal temperature for the yeasts to work. We can turn the oven on for 1 or 2 minutes at 50º C and turn off and let the dough rest inside. Thus we will have the ideal room temperature for the dough to ferment.
  5. We stretch the dough on a floured surface forming a rectangle. Follow the step by step in the photo, so you will not get lost at any time.
  6. With a kitchen brush, spread the softened butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon powder mixture and the 30 g. of sugar.

Rolling of the dough. Baking and final presentation of cinnamon rolls

  1. We roll the pasta sheet and cut into 10 parts. We place each part vertically on a high tray greased with butter and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rest again for 1 hour 30 minutes until they grow again.
  2. We preheat the oven to 200º C.
  3. Bake at 200º C with heat up and down the cinnamon rolls for 20 minutes, until they are well browned.
  4. While our bites are baking we prepare the glaze mixing all the ingredients. We remove the tray from the oven and spread the glaze on top.

We preferably serve hot and with a good cup of tea, chocolate or coffee. Perfect for a snack or breakfast.
