Easy Cinnamon Roll Ingredients

 
Ingredients in Cinnamon Roll Dough:

1/4-ounce package yeast (In India they're in balls, they die quickly too)
1/2 cup warm milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1 c warm water
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour

Ingredients for Cinnamon Roll Filling:

1/2 cup melted butter, plus more for pan if you don't have spray for the pan
 3/4 cup sugar, plus more for pan
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
3/4 cup raisins, walnuts, or pecans, optional
1/4 cup nutella

Ingredients for Cinnamon Roll Glaze:
 
5 tablespoons melted butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 6 tablespoons hot water

Directions for making cinnamon rolls


Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and sugar and set aside. If the water is too hot, you will kill your yeast!
  • Next, in a separate bowl, mix your milk, sugar, melted butter, salt and egg. Add half the flour, mix until smooth
  • Add the yeast
  • Slowly add int he rest of the flour, mixing until smooth.
  • Place dough on a floured work surface and hand kneed. 
  • Put into a greased bowl and cover to allow it to rise (1-2 hours is fine)
  • When doubled, press down dough. 
  • Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle. 
  • Spread melted butter all over dough (I like to use the butter wrapping)
  • Spread nutella along the 15'' side.
  • Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over buttered dough, using a sieve so you don't have chunks.
  • Sprinkle toppics, such as walnuts, pecans, or raisins.
  • Beginning at the 15-inch side, role up dough and pinch edge together to seal. 
  • Cut into approximately 1'' slices (you'll get around 12-15).
  • Coat the bottom of baking pan with butter or cooking spray. 
  • Sprinkle the bottom with more sugar and cinnamon. 
  • Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan and let sit for 10 minutes or more (up to 45 minutes)
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.

Make the glaze while this is baking. 
Mix melted butter and powdered sugar with vanilla. Slowly  add water until it is smooth.
Spread over still hot cinnamon rolls. Spoon extra on top as you eat them.
 
This is not low carb or low calorie!
 
YUM.
