I'm having an issue. I have a recipe and pictures, but I don't have too many words today.
These were a part of my annual holiday baking binge (which isn't much different from my every day life, but still....). I've realized I love working with dough, so I made cinnamon rolls a couple different ways, but these were my favorite.
I hope you all had a lovely holiday and wish you a happy new year.
dough (adapted from How Sweet Eats)
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 package dry yeast (or 2 1/4 teaspoons)
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 stick butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
- Heat milk in microwave for about 1 minute, until lukewarm. Add vegetable oil and sugar, stir. Sprinkle in yeast and let sit about 15 minutes, or until foamy.
- Move mixture to an electric mixture and add flour, baking soda, powder, and cinnamon. Stir until combined, then run mixer for about 6 minutes, kneading until dough is elastic and smooth.
- Allow dough to rise for 90 minutes or until doubled.
- Punch the dough down, then empty onto a floured counter. Roll out into a rectangle, making sure dough is roughly 1/2 an inch thick.
- To make filling, combine melted butter, sugars, and cinnamon. Spread evenly on the dough, then roll into spiral tube.
- Slice into 1-inch sections, then place rolls into a buttered pan. Let rise for 30 minutes.
- Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
- To make glaze, blend ingredients together. Pour over warm rolls and enjoy.
