Copy Of A CINNABON Cinnamon Roll
You Will need to gather your ingredients first before starting this recipe. You must follow the recipe step by step in order to achieve the true cinnabon flavor.
1 CUP WARM MILK
1/3 CUP BUTTER
4 1/2 CUPS FLOUR
1/2 TEASPOON SALT
2/3 CUPS OF SUGAR
2 1/2 TEASPOONS QUICK RISING YEAST
1 CUP BROWN SUGAR
2 1/2 TABLESPOONS OF FRESH GRATED CINNAMON
1/4 CUP OF BUTTER
3 OUNCES CREAM CHEESE
1 1/2 CUPS OF CONFECTIONER SUGAR
1/4 CUP BUTTER
1/2 TEASPOON OF VANILLA
1/8 TEASPOON OF SALT
Gather these ingredients and set them aside to start your dough recipe first.
PREHEAT OVEN TO 400 DEGREE’S
Take your 1 cup of milk warmed to about 100 degrees and disolve the packet of yeast, mix well into the milk making sure there are no clumps in the bottom of the bowl or on the spoon.
In a large bowl mix together the flour,sugar,salt, butter and eggs. Mix well and then knead the dough until well mixed and doesnt stick to your hands. Knead this into a large ball, Using your hands lightly dusted with flour place into a bowl with a drop of oil in the bottom of the bowl and cover in a warm location to allow to double in size. Once the dough has risen for about an hour you will remove it from the bowl and place on a lightly floured surface to roll out. Take your rolling pin and roll the dough out in the shape of a rectangle. Let this rest for approx. 10 minutes. While this is resting take the cinnamon that you have grated and combine in a bowl with the brownsugar and mix in well. Once you have done this, And your dough has rested take some butter and coat the dough with enough butter to make it even and slowly sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mix all over the dough. Once you have done this you will want to roll the dough up and seal it with a little bit of water on a paint brush to allow the seam to stick during the baking process. After you have done this cut the roll into 1/2 inch sections and place on a baking sheet and allow to rise again until doubled again in size. About another 30 minutes should be enough time.
Finally the last step in this recipe is the baking and the frosting of the cinnamon buns. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
Bake the rolls in a preheated oven until golden brown about 15 minutes, While rolls are baking, Beat together the cream cheese and butter with the confectioner sugar and vanilla and salt. You will want to spread the frosting on the cinnamon buns as soon as they have cooled but just for a few minutes as the best time to add the frosting is while they are still warm and will disolve the frosting allowing it to soak into the cinnamon bun
