Cinnamon Rolls Ingredients

Cinnamon Rolls IngredientsFor the dough:
  • 4 large egg yolks at room temperature
  • 1 whole egg, room temperature
  • 2 ounce of sugar, approximately ¼ a cup
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • 6 ounces of buttermilk
  • 4 cups of bread flour
  • 1 package of dry yeast
  • approximately 2 teaspoons of kosher salt
  • olive oil

  • For the filling:
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • ¾ cups of walnuts, pecans or raisins (optional)
  • a dash of salt

  • For the icing:
  • ¼ cup of softened cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoon of milk
  • 1 ½ cups of powdered sugar

  • Directions

    Dissolve the yeast in two teaspoons of warm water. Put half of the flour, the salt and the dissolved yeast into a medium bowl. Add the eggs, the butter, ¼ cup of sugar, the buttermilk and the butter in the bowl of the stand mixer. Start whisking all the ingredients until they are properly combined then add the ingredients from the other bowl continuing to whisk until you get a smooth consistency.

    Get a large bowl and oil put a little olive oil on the margins and the bottom of the bowl. Next mix the remaining flour with the composition for about 5 minutes using the dough hook. Now the dough should have a soft consistency. If the dough turns out to be a little sticky, that's a sign that you should add a little extra flour.

    After you made sure that the dough has the right consistency you can place it in the the large bowl, letting it sit for about 2 hours. Meanwhile start preparing the filling by the butter,combining the brown sugar, the cinnamon and the salt. Add one or more of the optional ingredients if you like them. Prepare the baking glass where you plan on baking the cinnamon rolls by rubbing a small quantity of slightly melted butter on the bottom of the dish. Preheat the oven at about 350 degrees F.

    After the dough has doubled in size transfer it on a working surface where you previously sprinkled a little flour and shape the dough in a rectangular form. Add the filling and start rolling the dough. After you have finished rolling the dough start cutting 1 inch and a half rolls and put them in the baking dish. Put the rolls in the oven leaving them for about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the rolls from the oven and start making the icing by combing all the ingredients. Pour the incing over the cinnamon rolls and serve immediately.
