Outrageous Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Outrageous Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

I have attempted to make homemade Cinnamon Rolls before and for whatever reason they never seemed to rise properly. My daughter’s friend shared a recipe for a cinnamon bun recipe she has made several times. We invited her over to help make them so I could learn a thing or two too! These breakfast treats came out amazing and they were so easy, no mixer was even needed. It was fun to share my kitchen with two teenagers and try out some new kitchen tools we were supplied with from T-Fal. Baking is fun when you do it with together!

It’s amazing when you show more patience when it’s not your child in the kitchen with you. It was great having a friend there and she was able to talk my daughter around this recipe without me always interacting. This is a reminder to allow her to do more in the kitchen and just look away. Of course, if she cleaned up after herself I would me more willing.

It is no surprise that I love new kitchen supplies. My husband thinks I need to get rid of stuff but I can’t bear to throw my old things away, unless they are damaged.

This is what makes it a true cinnamon roll. Just look as this base layer of cinnamon and sugar on top of the melted butter. Sin City Baby.

Baked and now ready for the icing, one of my favorite parts. Check out this cool T-fal silicone spatula. It has a flexible contoured edge and large straight edge which is great for frosting cakes. We just dripped some icing on these cinnamon rolls but it was great to also lift out individual slices.

No burning and easy to lift up. I am sold on these pans and might even replace some of my old stuff.

These cinnamon rolls were super easy and so tasty. We even enjoyed them the next day by simply putting them in the microwave for about 30 seconds tops. Tasted fresh out of the oven. Thanks Avery for allowing me to have my first good cinnamon rolls recipe experience.

Ingredients

Dough

  • 1/4 - ounce package yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup scalded milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour

Filling

  • 1/4 cup melted butter use some for pan
  • 3/4 cup sugar, plus more for pan
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 to 6 tablespoons hot water

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. In a large bowl mix milk, sugar, melted butter, salt and egg. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mix in remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface for 5 to 10 minutes. Place in well-greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  3. When doubled in size, punch down dough. Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. Spread melted butter all over dough. Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over buttered dough. Sprinkle with walnuts, pecans, or raisins if desired. Beginning at the 15-inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15 slices.
  4. Coat the bottom of baking pan with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
  5. Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar, and vanilla. Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches desired consistency. Spread over slightly cooled rolls. Enjoy!
