recipe // cinnamon rolls

March 12, 2014
I am one hundred percent a sweet person, meaning that when it comes to anything from chocolate to ice-cream I’m in! Just recently when I had some friends over for my birthday brunch, I thought about baking a cake or cupcakes – but those are standard and I wanted something special: cinnamon rolls! You know, these sweet little rolls from Sweden you can buy at IKEA? Yes, that’s them! Well, what can I say, they tasted just great! Plus, I prepared the dough the night before Sunday and I simply had to put them into the oven the next morning so that they were still warm and fresh – D E L I C I O U S, I’m telling you!
For 30 pieces you will need (for the dough):
  • 100g butter/margarine
  • 500ml milk
  • 50g yeast
  • 150g sugar
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1tsp cardamom
  • 900g flour
And for the filling:
  • 100g butter/margarine
  • 200g sugar
  • 2tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • sugar crystals

Melt the butter, add milk and let the yeast dissolve in it. Add sugar, salt, cardamom and flour and knead until you have a smooth dough. Cover it with a towel and wait for 30-40 minutes. Then knead the dough again, divide it into three parts and roll each part into a thin rectangle. Next, coat it with butter and sprinkle it with sugar and cinnamon (mixed). Once finished, you can roll it up and cut it into pieces (approximately 4cm thick). Put the pieces onto a baking plate and wait for another 30 minutes. Then, brush the rolls with whisked egg and sprinkle them with the sugar crystals. Lastly, bake them (pre-heated oven at about 250°C) for 8-10 minutes. ENJOY!
