Cinnamon Rolls

Picture this: Sunday morning - You are lazing on your bed after a good night rest. The aroma of coffee fills the air. You wake up and stroll to the balcony to find breakfast ready - fresh cinnamon rolls warm from the oven. The aroma of the freshly-baked rolls permeates the entire house. What a way to start the Sunday and the week!

Wife has been baking cinnamon rolls for our Sunday breakfast for a while now and the whole family simply loves it. My eldest can have 4 to 5 rolls at one go!

Wife will make the dough on Saturday night and let it rise throughout the night. Before we wake up, she will turn the dough into those yummy cinnamon rolls that all of us just cannot have enough of. Here is the recipe adapted from Aunty Yochana's version that you must try!

Bread ingredients:

210 gm. Bread Flour
90 gm. Plain Flour
10 gm. instant yeast
60 gm. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
120 ml. milk
60 gm. soft butter

Filling (Use your creativity to add/change the filling):

2 Tbsp. Soft Butter (For a richer version, cut butter block into slices/cubes)
60 gm. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon Powder
(We increased the sugar and cinnamon powder portion as we thought result using above original recipe's portion was too blend)
30 gm. Walnuts - chopped

Beaten egg for brushing


Mix all the bread ingredients together except butter and beat till a smooth dough is formed.

Add in butter and continue beating for another 5 mins.

Leave to prove for 45 mins.

Mix brown sugar, cinnamon powder and chopped walnuts together.

Divide dough into 2 portions. Roll each portion to a rectangular dough - 20 x 30 cm (8 x 12 in). Spread with some soft butter (Or place the cut butter evenly) then sprinkle brown sugar mixture. Roll up into a swiss roll and cut the roll to about 1" high. Place cut rolls on greased tray. Let it proof again for another 30 mins.

Brush rolls with beaten egg and bake at 180C for about 12 mins. or till golden brown.

The rolls before going into the oven

Wife usually makes a few variety of the cinnamon rolls - Original, Banana Chocolate, Walnut...
