I always used to think that making cinnamon rolls were so hard until recently. I was bored with baking cakes and wanted to try something different. So I remembered that a couple of people had asked me to try out a couple of ideas and cinnamon rolls recipe made the bucket list.
Not only does it take about 15 to 20 minutes preparation, but its also very easy.
Cinnamon rolls recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, softened
¾ cup milk
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Brush a 9-inch square baking dish with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
Whisk flour,white sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Work 3 tablespoons softened butter into flour mixture using your hands. Beat milk and egg together in another bowl; pour into flour-butter mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms.
Turn dough out onto a floured work surface and roll dough into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Brush surface of dough with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
Whisk 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1/2 of the cinnamon-sugar mixture in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar over butter-brushed dough. Roll dough around filling to form a log; cut the log into rolls and place them in the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until rolls are set, 20 to 30 minutes.
FOR THE VANILLA GLAZE :
1 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar
2 ½ teaspoons milk
⅛ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon butter
Mix all the ingredients together to form a paste then drizzle it over the cinnamon rolls.
Serve with a hot beverage. Enjoy ♥
