- As salam. How are you? These few weeks were quite hectic with family activities so, I couldn't write any entry though I have a lot in mind.
- Yesterday was quite fun as I experimented bun making and the best part was of course when it was a success!
- I took the recipe from here. The original recipe requires a bread machine, but I decided to do some arm and wrist exercises by using my hands :)
- This rolls will take about 3 hours of your time. Yup, that long..as you need to let the dough rise and so on.
- Here's the recipe for those who want to build muscle ;P
237ml Warm milk
18g Dry yeast
76g Butter/Margarine (melted)
540g Bread flour
100g Granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
200g Brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons Ground cinnamon
60g Butter(room temperature)
85g Cream cheese
50g Butter (room temperature)
180g Confectioner's sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
- First, in a large bowl, dissolve the yeast into the milk to activate it for about 5 mins.
- Then, mix in the eggs, butter, sugar and salt.
- Next, add in the flour and mix well. Dust your hands with some flour and knead the dough into a ball.
- Place the dough back in the bowl and cover the bowl with a plastic wrap or a damp towel. You may even place the bowl in the oven that has been preheated. Don't forget to switch off the oven before placing the bowl.
- After 1 hour or when the size doubles, take the dough out. Lightly floured your work surface and punch the dough. This is to release any gas in it.
- Let is rest for about 10 mins.
- Prepare the filling. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
- Roll dough into a 16x21inch rectangle. Spread some butter on the dough followed by the filling mixture evenly.
- Roll up the dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place them in the baking pan.
- Cover and let them rise for about 30mins. Preheat your oven to 200deg celcius.
- Then, bake rolls until golden brown for about 15 minutes.
- While baking, prepare the frosting. Beat together butter, cream cheese and vanilla essence.
- Spread frosting before serving. Enjoy your rolls!
