ok, so I'm not really perfect housewife kind of gal, but if I really want to make something in the kitchen I literally can't sleep at night. so the other day I came across with some random cinnamon roll's picture on instagram and I just couldn't stop thinking about how good they are.
this is how yesterday I knew that I just had to make them right there right now and they turned out just fine! maybe a bit too dry, so for next time I leave note to myself to add more butter even though it's not too healthy at all.
I didn't really follow some exact recipe as they can be really different and I didn't want to use a lot of eggs and milk because of the boy's allergies, so this is what I came up with:
what you need:
- 250ml warm milk
- 150g brown sugar
- 25g of dry yeast
- 2 eggs
- 200g butter
- 650g white flour
- 2 spoons of cinnamon
- Heat 200g of butter and stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 cup flour, yeasts and sugar; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk; beat well. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.
- Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, softened margarine.
- Roll out dough into a 12x9 inch rectangle. Spread dough with margarine/sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and pinch seam to seal. Cut into equal size rolls and place cut side up. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 190 degrees and bake for 10 minutes. When salve the egg white on tops and sprinkle some more sugar. Leave in the over for another 10 minutes or until browned.
and this is it, serve them warm together with milk or your favorite tea! believe me, they bring you very close to happiness.
