Step-by-Step Guidance on Making Cinnamon Roll

Step #1

Take a large mixing bowl then add yeast and warm water to it. Let the yeast dissolve in the warm water and wait for 5-7 minutes. When it becomes foamy, it is ready

Step #2

Then add warm milk, sugar, butter, salt, 2 cups of flour, and eggs to the mixture. Keep moving it until the mixture becomes smooth.

Step #3

Add the remaining flour a little at a time until the dough comes together and stops being sticky. Start kneading the dough for 5-6 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

Step #4

Put the dough in a greased bowl, wrap it with a damp towel, and allow it to rise for an hour, or until it has doubled in size, in a warm spot.

Step #5

Stet the oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare it for the next step.

Step #6

Take a small bowl and add melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix them well and make the filling.

Step #7

Take a hardboard or surface and dust flour on it. Roll out the dough into a rectangle. On the dough, evenly spread the filling.

Step #8

Starting with the long side, tightly roll the dough and close the seam at the end. Make 12 pieces off of the roll.

Step #9

Organize the rolls in a 9×13-inch baking pan and grease it. Let the rolls rise for an additional 15-20 minutes.

Step #10

Bake the cinnamon rolls for 20-25 minutes until they turn golden brown.

Step #11

Prepare the glaze by blending the softened butter, powdered sugar, vanilla essence, and just enough milk in a separate bowl. It will produce a smooth, pourable glaze while the rolls are baking.

Step #12

When the baking is done, let the cinnamon rolls cool for five minutes. After that, sprinkle the glaze on top.

Step #13

Your cinnamon rolls are ready. So, enjoy them with your family.
