The last year, i kept viewing at coffee shops and popular cafes large versions of cinnamon rolls.
Nobody knew they can make them at home, very easy process, only a bit time consuming but absolutely worth the trouble! Best part, you only do this once but you can freeze them unbaked and last for months in deep freeze!
I mixed a couple of recipes but finally found the best combination!
You’ll just need for the dough
- 1 liter whole milk
- 1 cup oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 bags of bread yeast (dried)
- 8 cups of all purpose flour ( and a bit more)
- 1 tbs baking powder
- 1 tbs baking soda
- 1 pinch of salt
And also for the filling you can use
any kind of sugar, black, brown, palm sugar or even regular
2 tbs of cinnamon
and couple of tbs of melted butter.
Now let’s get down to the process!
You mix the milk, the oil and the sugar in a pan, and just before they boil you close the heat. you let the liquid cool down a bit and mix the yeast. You place the 8 cups of four on a bowl and slowly add the liquid and fold them together. the dough will get a bit sticky, that’s the point!
We let a side the dough to rest, for about an hour or until it doubles it’s size!
When your dough is ready, you fold the baking powder and soda and a bit more flour until you can use the dough with your hand not being sticky! You half the dough and roll it with a rolling pin.
After it is thin enough, you spread the melted butter and sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon combination until it covers the whole dough!
After that, you roll the dough into a big cylinder and cut vertically in equal parts. You can fill two pans. In this stage, you can keep one pan in the freeze as it is
You have preheated the oven in 180 degrees and you bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown!
It’s always a nice accompany with coffee!
Hope you enjoy it
