House smells of cinnamon- Cinnamon rolls

One ingredient that is versatile is cinnamon. I love cinnamon flavor in almost everything- You can add in gravies, rice recipes and of course my favorite cinnamon rolls- ah, I could kill for a cup of steaming coffee and cinnamon roll. Here's my batch of home made cinnamon rolls- Enjoy!


1 pkt active dry yeast (7 gm)
3/4 cup warm milk
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

For the filling-

1/4 cup softened butter
1 big tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar


In a large mixing bowl, combine yeast, milk, sugar, salt, egg and one cup of flour. Stir the ingredients well. Add the remaining flour and knead it to a smooth dough. Store it in a bowl and cover it with a damp cloth. Allow the dough to raise and double in size (should take an hour).

For the filling, combine butter, cinnamon and brown sugar to a good paste. Once the dough has risen, roll it on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thick rectangle. Smear some butter on the flattened dough. Spread the filling on the dough. Roll it up along the long edge till it forms a one big roll. Slice the roll into equal sized pieces and place it on a baking tray. Cover it with a damp cloth and allow it to raise for 10-15 minutes. Give it a quick egg wash (egg combined with milk). Pre heat the oven to 200 degree Celsius and bake the rolls for 15 to 20 minutes till golden brown. Give enough space for the rolls to rise when baking it in the oven. Once baked, serve it hot with steaming cup of coffee!
