Homemade Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

There are very few things I love more than the smell of coffee in the morning but Cinnamon Rolls are one of them. I am personally sick of buying the Pillsbury Dough boy kind and wanted something fun to do on the weekend. What better way to start off your Saturday/Sunday than with some baking? Try out this recipe I found over on Ang Sarap.

What you’ll need. (ingredients)

Dough
• 4 cups flour
• 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
• 1/2 cup water
• 1/2 cup evaporated milk
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 1/3 cup margarine, melted
• 1 tsp salt
• 2 eggs

Filling
• 1 cup brown sugar
• 3 tbsp cinnamon
• 1 1/2 cup raisins
• margarine, softened

Icing
• 1/2 cup margarine, softened
• 1/2 cup cream cheese
• 1/4 cup evaporated milk
• 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
• pinch of salt

• 2/3 cup milk
• 2 tablespoons loose leaf chai tea
• ½ cup pouring cream
• 225g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 tablespoon dried yeast
• 30g caster sugar
• Vegetable oil, for deep frying

Glaze
• 150g icing sugar, sifted
• 3-4 tablespoons chai-infused milk, reserved
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Let’s do this. (instructions)

1. Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Set aside.

2. Mix together flour, sugar, and margarine, salt, eggs, milk and yeast mixture. Once evenly mixed knead the dough in a floured board. Form into a large ball then place in a bowl covered in cling wrap. Place in a warm place and let it rise for 1 hour or until it doubled in size.

3. Remove dough from the bowl, deflate and roll into a floured surface until it reaches 24 x 16 inches in dimension. The thickness should be around 1/4 inch.

4. Prepare the filling by mixing brown sugar and cinnamon together.

5. Spread the softened margarine over the top of the flattened dough, sprinkle the cinnamon mixture and raisins.

6. Now start rolling starting on the 24 inch side until the end then cut into 2 inch slices. Place in a greased pan.

7. Bake for 10 minutes in a 200C pre-heated oven.

8. Prepare the icing by mixing all of the ingredients using a hand mixer until smooth and fluffy.

9. When rolls are cooked, top it with icing and let it cool.

Take pictures of these when you finish making them! Would love to feature some of your photos on my Twitter.
