I can't describe in words how good these cinnamon rolls can be.
Initially, I wanted to make the "Cinnabon Rolls" recipe, but Amira looked at the Almette cheese box and decided, "I want to eat my own cheese" :))) So I ran out of cheese for the rolls. But I was not discouraged, I smiled and moved on… :))
The dough is the same thing I've been making lately, for the fluffy croissants with walnuts and for the cake . It's so good, soft and fluffy that I actually fell in love with it. :))
100 g sugar
10 g dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
200 ml of milk
60 g butter
550 g flour
1 tablespoon candied orange peel
For the filling:
100 g butter
~ 50 g sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
500 ml of milk
100 g sugar (or more, as desired)
Mix the yeast with 1 tablespoon of sugar, 50 ml of warm milk and a little flour. Homogenize and leave in a warm place until it swells and blisters appear on the surface.
Put the mayonnaise in the pan of the bread machine, then add the eggs, the rest of the sugar, the melted and cooled butter, the candied orange peel, the remaining milk and the flour little by little. Knead until all the ingredients are incorporated and obtain an elastic dough. Let it rise until it doubles in volume.
Place the dough on a lightly floured table and spread a rectangular sheet about 0.5 cm thick. Grease with soft butter, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
Roll tightly, lengthwise, then with a thread cut rolls of 4-5 cm.
We put the thread under the roll, then as if we were making a knot we cut the rolls. You can also cut with a knife, but with a thread it cuts perfectly and the cinnamon layers are distinct.
The rolls obtained are placed in a tray lined with baking paper and left to rise again for about 15-20 minutes.
Put the tray in the oven, over medium heat and bake until evenly browned.
For the syrup, heat the milk a little, then mix it with the sugar and vanilla.
Leave the rolls to cool in the tray, then syrup them with milk syrup.
You can syrup them according to your desire, more or less, but with a lot of syrup they are delicious, I assure you.
