January's challenge on Have The Cake is Cinnamon Rolls.
At first, my intention was to step aside and wait for next month's challenge
but talking with my good friend Winnie, I've changed my mind and decided to make cinrolls
that will be tasty for me too- and there's nothing more appropriate than Chocolate!
I must say the result is amazing :)
For the dough:
T dry yeast
4 cups flour
2 L eggs + egg yolk
½ t salt
½ cup canola oil
½ cup white sugar
¼ cup warm water
For the filling:
30G milk chocolate, grated
1/8 cup white sugar
T ground cinnamon
For the Topping:
1 ¼ cup packed brown sugar
Mix the dry ingredients of the dough, add the liquids and knead until you form an elastic
and smooth dough. Set aside to rise – my dough hasn't risen much and I guess it's
because of my yeasts or the lack of willingness in my side to wait :)
Meanwhile, make the topping by melting the butter and then adding the brown sugar.
Spread in a baking pan- You can use two small pans as I did (one round and the other a rectangle)
or you can use small-medium baking pan.
Mix the filling ingredients together, except the butter.
Roll the dough to form a thin rectangle. Melt the butter and spread over the dough.
Spread the filling on top of the butter and make a roll. Cut the roll into rings.
Place the rings on the pan we made earlier. Heat oven to 175C and bake for 20 minutes.
When the cinnamon rolls is out from the oven, wait for about 5 minutes
and then turn it on a plate. Doesn't it look gorgeous? Yummy :)
