Cinnamon Rolls

How many times have you postponed making something you really wanted to try,fearing it may not work well or it may not rise to your expectations?I have and I regret postponing cinnamon-rolls-project for so long.because it is just so delicious and I wonder why I feared it so much.
Cinnamon Rolls
Cinnamon is one of my most favorite spices.I add it to my cookies,cakes,muffins,breads,milkshakes and even to my regular cup of tea.The fragrance of the spice is just so warm and earthy!I have shook my misgivings to yeast baking,mostly thanks to the bread baking we do once in a month WKtB.The availability of good quality yeast also adds up to the success ratio.

A while back,I received a Giveaway package from Ria who sent me a delicious batch of Cinnamon rolls.Then and there I decided I should try it out too,in my kitchen but as always,it went deep down in my bookmarked folders and was completely forgotten.Out of the blue one day,I decided I am going to bake a batch and that's it,a fresh,fragrant batch of perfectly risen and browned Cinnamon rolls came out of my oven too,it was time to pat my back for I was worrying unnecessarily about something so simple!

Method

Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls 
Mix together the dry ingredients - 
Cinnamon Rolls 
flour,salt,yeast and sugar.
Cinnamon Rolls 
Pour in the warm to touch milk mixture and break the egg into it.
Knead into a smooth dough.It will start out sticky,so knead it for 5-7 minutes till it becomes smooth.
Cinnamon Rolls 
Let the dough rest in an oiled bowl,covered in a cling wrap/kitchen towel until it doubles-about an hour or so.
Cinnamon Rolls 
Punch down the dough and roll it into a rectangle.I started out by rolling it into a 12' square and then rolled it into a rectangular shape keeping the width intact.
Cinnamon Rolls 
Mix together the cinnamon and the sugar.
Cinnamon Rolls 
Pour the melted butter over the rolled out dough and spread it using a pastry brush or even better your fingers.Make sure the butter is spread out evenly.
Sprinkle over the cinnamon sugar evenly.
Roll the dough in a swiss roll style from the longer side towards you.Pinch the seams together.Cut the dough into even sized 16 rolls.
Cinnamon Rolls 
Place the rolls in a square/round tray* and let it rest for 45 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C.Bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes or until the rolls are evenly browned and sound hollow when tapped.
Cinnamon Rolls 
Meanwhile make the frosting.Mix all the ingredients mentioned for the frosting and 
Cinnamon Rolls 
pour over the warm rolls and let it sit for 10 minutes or so.
Serve warm.

Notes
  • I was apprehensive to add the egg mentioned in the recipe but let me assure you,the rolls do not smell eggy at all.I am planning to try the recipe without egg too,will update the post once I try.
  • The rolls taste delicious warm,so if you like you can Microwave the rolls for about 10-15 seconds before serving.
  • The amount of filling is per one's choice.I always have a jar of cinnamon sugar in the kitchen to sprinkle over buttered toasts so I used that and the pictures are also of that one.I used part white sugar and part brown sugar.
  • *I had a smaller tray so I divided the rolls and baked in one square and one round tray.The square tray was baked in the OTG and the round one  in the Microwave.
