This week for my learning project, I made homemade cinnamon buns. I chose this recipe because it was a no knead recipe, which I was really excited to try. After reading the comments, I also read up about tips for making these cinnamon buns – I found these tips very helpful! First of all, I mixed oil, milk and sugar in my large stockpot and then let it cool for an hour. After an hour, I added flour and yeast and put the lid on to let the yeast work for an hour.
This is what my dough looked like after rising for one hour – very moist dough. I added another half a cup of flour and some other ingredients, stirred, and the dough was ready to go! I loved how easy the making of the dough was! Certainly the easiest this far! I rolled out the dough in a large rectangle, and covered in the one cup of melted butter.
After putting the butter on, I mixed the white sugar and a lot of cinnamon and incorporated it with the butter.
I grabbed the edge of the long side and rolled the dough into a log. Now this was a real struggle. There was way to much butter and so they dough was too heavy for me to be able to pull up and wrap. Next time, I would cut the amount of butter in half. Not that we don’t all love butter, but this is what was left on my counter after I got the cinnamon rolls cut and into my pan.
The recipe made 15 rolls, I made one pan and a small pan with just a few.
The cinnamon buns were so simple! I forgot to take a picture before I iced them, so this is all I have for the finished product. They turned out very light, fluffy and delicious. I have a new favourite cinnamon roll recipe!
Thanks for reading! Its been a slice!
