Homemade CINNAMON ROLLS No Kneading and No Mixer required. This simple recipe is so delicious! If you have never made homemade cinnamon rolls, you should try it!
- 1/2 stick butter
- 11 ounces whole milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 teaspoon instant dry yeast
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 large egg yolk
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons whole milk
Start by warming butter and milk in a microwave safe bowl, until it is warm (not hot). Add salt and yeast, stir gently with the back end of a wooden or plastic spoon. Add vanilla and stir. Add sugar and egg yolk, stir. Add bread flour. Stir with back end of spoon until it all comes together to form a soft dough. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the oven with only the oven light on, or any other warm draft free environment for 2 1/2 hours. In a separate bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon, set aside. Remove plastic wrap from dough, use the back end of the spoon to degas the dough. Add a small amount of flour on top and swirl the dough a few more rounds. Pour onto a floured surface and incorporate another small amount of flour- 3 tablespoons. Pat or roll the dough out and add cinnamon mixture, roll from one side to the other and cut into 1 inch slices. Spray 9 inch cake pan with non stick spray, I like these pans. Place slices into pan. Cover with a cloth towel and let sit for 30 minutes. In a separate bowl, add powdered sugar and milk, mix well to make icing. Bake these at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. Add icing. Enjoy!
