Cinnamon Rolls
Preparation Difficulty
2 hours ★★✩✩✩

Appropriate for 10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 400gr flour, all purpose
  • 240ml milk
  • 112gr butter
  • 2 & 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) instant yeast
  • 60gr granulated sugar
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Heat the milk in a large saucepan along with 3 tablespoons of butter. Wait until the butter melts (be careful, do not bring to a boil) and remove from the heat. Let it cool enough just for you to be able to touch, at about 115° Fahrenheit / 46° Celsius degrees.
  2.  Put the mixture into a large bowl and add the instant yeast.
  3. Leave it like that for about 10 minutes, until the yeast starts “working”, add the salt and 1 tablespoon of sugar and stir for a bit.
  4. Add the flour little by little, while stirring.
  5. When you see that the mixture, the dough that is, is thick enough, then knead on a floured surface and form a ball out of it.
  6. Put the dough into a bowl with a bit of flour in it, enough not to stick down, cover the bowl with a towel or plastic wrap and set it in a warm place to double in size (Approximately for about an hour).
  7. After your dough has doubled, roll it out on a floured surface and brush with 3 tablespoons of butter (melt).
  8. Scatter the ground cinnamon and the rest of the sugar all over the dough on top of the butter and start rolling your dough into a large cane.
  9. Cut the dough into 10 or 12 pieces, depending on the size you want your rolls to be, and place them into a pan.
  10. Brush your rolls with the rest of the butter (melted) and cover with a plastic wrap.
  11. Put them aside, somewhere warm, while you preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit / 180° Celsius degrees.
  12. Put the pan into the oven (without the plastic wrap) and bake for about 25 minutes.
  13. Remove from the oven, let them cool off for a few minutes and there!*

Your Cinnamon Rolls are ready to serve!
