Best Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
The recipe consists of three different parts – making the dough, combining the sugar cinnamon mixture and cream cheese frosting. Again, this yeasted dough requires proofing twice (2-3 hours in total) to attain the best results.
First, the dough. The first and foremost step is obviously proofing the yeast before adding the other ingredients of the dough. All you need to do is combine together active dry yeast, lukewarm milk and a little sugar in a bowl. Set this aside until it starts to foam.
To prepare the dough for this best cinnamon rolls recipe, we’ll be using the electric stand mixer with the dough hook attachment. Even though this makes the process easier, you can always knead with your hands. However, it may require longer kneading time.
To the bowl of the mixer, add all the dry ingredients including flour, sugar and salt. Use a wooden spoon to give this a quick stir. To this, add all the wet ingredients – egg, vanilla extract and butter. And finally, the bubbly yeast mixture.
Place this on the stand mixer and knead for about 5 minutes. Cover and place this dough in a warm spot to rise. This will take about 1-2 hours. Punch down the dough (this is very important) and transfer onto a floured surface. Roll out. This should be about 1/2 cm thick.
Next, filling. A simple sweet combination of butter, brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Use dark brown sugar if you can. Just a quick mix and you can spread this on the rolled out dough.
Now, roll the dough with the filling inside and cut into thick circles. Transfer this to the baking pan and let it rise for another 1 hour. And again, we’ll also try the viral TikTok hack in this recipe. Drizzle a little heavy or thickened cream on the rolls just before baking. Bake this for about 25 minutes.
Final step, the cream cheese frosting. It’s super simple to make. Just combine together cream cheese, sugar, butter and vanilla extract. The frosting needs to be soft and fluffy.
