Ingredients and Method


Ingredients


Dough: 

200ml warm milk, 

1 sachet quick-rise yeast, 

60g white sugar, 

1 whole egg, 

1 egg yolk, 

60g melted Stork butter, 

750 bread flour, 

pinch of salt.


Filling: 

60g Softened Stork butter, 

400g brown sugar, 

2 tablespoons cinnamon.


Frosting: 

100g Cream cheese, 

2 tablespoons Stork butter, 

150g powdered sugar, 

Few drops of vanilla extract.


Method


Dough Preparation: Mix yeast in warm milk with sugar, add eggs, butter, flour, and salt. Knead for about 8 minutes if by Kenwood. You will need at least 10- 12 minutes on a well-floured surface by hand.


Let it rise: Place the dough in a well-greased bowl and cover with stretch & seal and a warm cloth. Allow it to rest and rise for around 1 hour and a half.


Make the cinnamon mix: In the meantime, mix the soft butter, cinnamon, and sugar in a separate bowl.


Assembling Rolls: Roll out the dough and apply the cinnamon mix evenly. Put some mix near the edges so you use the whole of the dough. Roll tightly and slice evenly.


Baking: Place the rolls in a pan, allow a second rise (40 minutes), then bake until golden brown (30 minutes or until golden).


Frosting: Combine cream cheese, butter, sugar, and vanilla. Spread on warm rolls.
