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..

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

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.
