Best Cinnamon Rolls Recipe Ever


I just love cinnamon rolls, i have already shared a whole wheat version. But i wanted to make a basic cinnamon roll recipe always and finally i made it few days back and it was delicious.


The rolls were so soft with a buttery,sugary cinnamony interior and a little crusty sugar exterior. Perfect for this time of the year..


This recipe makes a good amount of rolls so it is best for sharing and you will just love it..


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..


Preparation Time : 15 mins
Rising Time : 2 hour
Makes : 12 to 15 buns

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 cups + more
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1 cup or as needed
Dry Yeast - 2 tsp
Egg - 1
Unsalted Butter - 1/4 cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp

For Topping:

Soft Unsalted Butter - 1/2 cup or as needed
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cinnamon Powder - 2 tsp
Raisans a handful

For Icing:

Icing Sugar / Confectioners Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - 2 to 3 tblspn

(MY 1 CUP MEASURES 240 ML)

Method:


Take flour, salt in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.

Melt butter in a pan, add in milk, sugar and whisk well. Touch and see whether the temp of the milk is luke warm. It has to be very warm, if it is hot then the yeast will die.

Once the mix is warm, sprinkle over the yeast and set aside for 5 mins. Now it will be all activated.

Now whisk it well and add in egg and whisk well.

Now add in flour and mix to a sticky dough. 

Now cover the dough with a plate and let it rise on a warm spot for 1 hour or till it is doubled in size.

Now Make the cinnamon sugar. Mix sugar and cinnamon till it is mixed.Set it aside till use.

Once the dough is risen. Roll it out into a long rectangle. Spread some soft butter over it. Sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar mix and raisans..Roll it into a thick log. Now cut them into equal slices.

Arrange it in a buttered tray. Cover again and let it rise for a hour.

Preheat the oven to 180 Degree C / 360 Degree F.

Once it is risen, bake it in a preheated oven for 25 to 30 mins.

Remove from oven and make the icing.

Take icing sugar and milk in a bowl and mix well so it forms into a smooth icing.

Drizzle this all over the rolls.

Serve.
