Cinnamon Rolls

I just love cinnamon rolls and I wanted to figure out how to make them myself. This was the first recipe I ever used and it was perfect and I should tell you that the house smell amazing. So lets get started. 

Ingredients: (Makes 14-16 rolls two batches of the above picture)
  • Yeast - 8 grams 
  • ¾ cup of Whole Milk 
  • ¼ cup of Granulated Sugar 
  • ¼ cup of Water, warmed up 
  • ¼ tsp of Vanilla Extract 
  • 1 Egg 
  • 1 tsp of Salt 
  • ¼ cup of Unsalted Butter 
  • 4 cups of All Purpose Flour 
  • ¼ cup of Melted Butter, to brush over the top before baking 

For the Filling,
  • 1/3 cup of Unsalted Butter, at room temperature 
  • ¾ cup of Brown Sugar 
  • ¼ cup of Granulated Sugar 
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp of Ground Cinnamon 

  • In a small bowl, combine the warm water and 1 tsp of the granulated sugar, sprinkle the yeast over the top and let it sit for about 5 minutes. 
  • In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook, mix the egg, milk, salt, sugar and melted butter. Add 2 cups of the flour and the water, vanilla and yeast mixture, mix until its all incorporated and slowly add about 2 more cups of flour. Turn the speed up to medium and let it mix for about 5 minutes or until you have a smooth dough. 
  • Oil a large bowl with some vegetable oil and set aside. Take the dough out of the mixer and place it in the oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot to rise for about 2 hours. 
  • In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon for the filling, set aside. 
  • When doubled in size, punch the dough down and roll it out onto a floured surface into a rectangle. Spread the soft butter over the top and sprinkle evenly over the sugar and cinnamon mixture.Staring from one of the long ends, tightly roll the dough into a jelly roll form. Cut into 14 to 16 slices and put them in well buttered baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let put them back into a warm spot to rise for another 1 ½ hours. 
  • Meanwhile preheat your oven to 170 degrees C. 
  • Once risen, brush them with some melted butter and bake them for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
