Cinnamon Rolls have been on my mind from a very long time but Adrian is not very fond of cinnamon thus I avoided making it.
Whenever I pass by Cinnabon, I keep drooling over the frosted cinnarolls. The aroma is so very enticing that it makes me feel hungry.
So finally today I decided to make it. I reduced the cinnamon but I don't suggest you to do so. I was quiet happy with the outcome, they were super soft, perfectly sweet. I didn't frost them either as I didn't want it too sweet.
I'm glad Adrian and Sabu liked it and both of them ate two each.
Final verdict they were superb. Sabu gave thumbs up. :)
1 1/3 cup KDD Milk (full cream)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp dry yeast
2 2/3 cups plain flour + 1/3 cup
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
100g unsalted melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 tsp Cinnamon powder
1/4 cup Sultanas (optional)
1/4 cup walnuts chopped roughly (optional)
Mix the milk, vegetable oil and sugar in a pan.
Heat the milk just before the boiling point, turn off heat and leave to cool for about 30 mins.
When the milk mixture is lukewarm, add the yeast. Leave it to froth for 3-4 minutes.
Add 2 2/3 cups of flour, mix well. Cover and let it rise for one hour.
Now to the above risen dough mixture add 1/3 cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir the mixture nicely and you will have a very sticky dough.
Leave it for another 30 minutes to rise. Punch the dough.
Sprinkle the rolling board or the surface with flour. Roll the dough thinly into a long rectangle shape.
Now drizzle the melted butter over the rolled dough.
Mix cinnamon & sugar so it can be easily sprinkled on the rolled dough.
Sprinkle the cinnamon & sugar.
Then sprinkle the cinnamon powder, sultanas & walnuts.
Now start rolling the dough slowly making sure both end are equally rolled . Roll it tightly. Finally pinch the ends to seal it.
Cut the roll to 2 inch thick and lay them in a greased baking tray leaving space in between for the rolls to rise.
Let the rolls rise for 30 mins.
Bake at a 180℃ in a pre-heated oven until light golden brown, for 25 minutes.
Enjoy it with hot cup of coffee or simply eat them plain.
