For my first post at Have the Cake, this month I baked cinnamon rolls. It was the first time to make them and now I intend to make them again and again!
550 gr. flour all-purpose and 1-2 cups more
9 gr. dried yeast
200 ml warm milk
3 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
a pinch of salt
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
3-4 tbsp cinnamon
Place all ingredients (except the filling's) in a mixer bowl and knead with the hook kneading for 6 to 7 minutes until it gathers as a ball on the hook. The dough will be slightly moist. Then, continue kneading with hands, adding flour - if nessesary - until you have a smooth, fluffy and not sticky dough. Put in a bowl covered with flour and let it in a warm place to double for 1 hour.
In another bowl mix well the filling's ingredients until it looks like paste.
When the dough is ready, put it on a floured surface and with a rolling pin open it in a rectangle shape. Spred the filling on the dough and roll it to become a stick. Cut it in pieces and place them on a large baking pan covered with a greaseproof paper. Let them stand for 30 minutes and turn on the oven at 180.
After half hour, cover them with beaten egg and put them in the oven for around 25 minutes. Serve them as they are or with icing sugar.
