Cinnamon Rolls (Just like Cinnabon!) July 21, 2012Posted by thelazychef in Bread.
There was such an awesome smell that wavered through the house when this was baking in the oven!
And the moment it came out, I couldn’t resist sinking my teeth into it!
And boy was it delicious and fluffy!!! **cue : It’s soooo flufffyyyy! aka Agnes from Despicable Me!**
The quality of this roll is just fantastic. I added in lightly toasted walnuts into the cinnamon brown sugar filling and I really think it made all the difference! Everyone raved about it!
I made this with my breadmaker so I must say that it was really simple. I will probably try making this again soon without a breadmaker and hope to post my results here… but in the meantime, here’s the recipe:
235 ml warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 eggs, room temperature
75 g butter, melted
200g wholewheat flour
400g unbleached bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
80g white sugar
180g brown sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
75g butter, softened
70g chopped lightly toasted walnuts
- Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.
- After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, walnuts, cinnamon and butter into a paste.
- Roll dough into a 16×21 inch rectangle. Sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 60 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Bake for 20 minutes or till top is golden brown. Enjoy!
Notes: Bread best eaten on day it is baked. But this is quite a big portion and if you have extras you wish to have for breakfast the next day, place the cinnamon rolls in the microwave for 10 seconds to warm it up so that it’ll be hot and fluffy again!
