I have always wanted to bake Cinnamon Rolls! Imagine how happy I was when I saw that Glazed Cinnamon Rolls is on Avid Baker's Challenge (ABC) February's bake. ABC is currently baking from "The Weekend Baker" by Abigail Johnson Dodge. This is the second recipe that I've tried, and it is another winner!
According to Abby, the dough is really sticky and advises us to resist the urge to add more flour. After I have kneaded for about 10 minutes, it was still very sticky, I read thru the recipe again and realised that I have used slightly more milk than the recipe states. I use one full cup of 250ml instead of 1 cup of 233ml (Abby's measurement) as stated. I then added in about 3 tablespoons of flour, it was still sticky, but I left it at that. And the only change I did was, I used bread flour instead of all-purpose flour as per the original recipe. The dough is shaped into a ball and left to rise for about 1 hour until nearly doubled in size. After rising for an hour, it is no longer sticky but wonderfully soft. It is then rolled out to a rectangle and spread with the filling. The dough is then rolled up like a jelly roll, and sliced at 1" interval to yield 12 pieces.
The rolls are placed in a pan and left to rise, covered for another 40 minutes or so, until they are almost doubled in size.
Bake the rolls for about 35 minutes until puffed and well browned. The smell of the rolls while baking, is deliciously wonderful!
These are delicious! The rolls are really soft and fluffy. Though we have the option of glazing the rolls, I omitted that, as I am not a fan of overly sweet desserts. These rolls are good on its own, without any glaze!
Yummy! So soft and fluffy! The next time when I make this, I will reduce the sugar for the filling as I find it a little too sweet.
Overall review : Really good! Soft, fluffy and absolutely delicious especially when eaten while still warm. A definite keeper recipe. You may find this delicious recipe from "The Weekend Baker" or get it here.
