Everyone was talking about Cinnabons
Those wonderful rich Cinnamon Rolls
I had a look through the Food Network Site for a recipe
The Americans do these kind of rolls, so well
Paula Deen the Queen of Rich and Over the Top food, had this recipe
So I made them
It was so so popular
He loved them
1/4 -ounce package yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup scalded milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter or shortening
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup melted butter, plus more for pan
3/4 cup sugar, plus more for pan
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
3/4 cup raisins, walnuts, or pecans, optional
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 6 tablespoons hot water.
Heat oven to 175 degrees C
Mix milk, sugar, melted butter, salt and egg.
Add yeast mixture.
Mix in remaining flour
Blitz until dough is easy to handle.
Place in well-greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle.
Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over buttered dough.
Beginning at the 15-inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal.
Coat the bottom of baking pan with butter and sprinkle with sugar.
Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and
Bake for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches desired consistency.
Spread over slightly cooled rolls.
