Glazed Cinnamon Rolls : ABC Feb 2012

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.  


Please visit my fellow bakers at ABC to view their post on this yummy rolls.

  2. They turned out great, Joyce! Thanks for including a picture of the interior. You can really tell they're soft and fluffy. I considered subbing bread flour for the All-Purpose but since I subbed whole wheat flour for some of the AP flour, I decided not to make TOO many changes at once, ha ha.

  18. Aren't they nice?
    I don't know what kind of flours you get in Malaysia, Joyce, but your bread flour might have the same amount of protein as American all-purpose flour. AP-flours in the US have a much higher protein (gluten) content than, for example, European ones.
    I have fond memories of Malaysia - I took a road trip in 1976, with friends, it is a very beautiful country.
    Happy baking,
    Karin

  23. They were sooo very good! Like you, my dough also had a big case of stickiness.. and I had to add a bit more flour for it to come to the texture that the book noted. I was nervous that they were going to be super heavy with the additional flour, but I had nothing to worry about.. they were light and fluffy...

  36. Hello,

    "The next time when I make this, I will reduce the sugar for the filling as I find it a little too sweet."

    Can you recommend me how much brown and white sugars to use for the filling as to your liking (ie. not too sweet)? TQ.

    2. Hi Anonymous,
      I apologize for the delay!
      The original amount of sugar for the filling are as follows : 1/2 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. Since I do not like very sweet treats, I would reduce half the amount for each, again that is for individual preference.
      This is a really lovely rolls, one that you would definitely enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea.
      Thank you for stopping by!

      Do we use soft or coarse brown sugar? And the normal white sugar or castor?

    4. Hi Anonymous,
