Today's Blogember Prompt is to share your favourite recipes. Now, that is pretty difficult for me, since I love to cook and bake, and I wouldn't want to share a recipe I've already done on my blog. So let's go with something recent and delicious.
Cinnamon Buns...or as my late grandmother called them "Sticky Wicky's". (at least that's a memory I seem to have about them!)
Not wanting to trust dough to rise in dry old Calgary, I of course do the dough in my bread machine.
1 cup milk
3 tbsp water
3 tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
3 cups flour
2 tsp dry active yeast
Put all that into the bread machine in the order above, and run the dough setting...which takes about an hour and a half.
Turn the dough out, and let it rest covered with a big bowl for 10-15 minutes.
Then knead and fold the crap out of it, enjoy the process, punch it as hard as you can, it's a particularly shock absorbing dough!
Roll it out flat (I had to separate min into halves for this due to small working area) and spread with filling.
1/3 cup butter melted
3/4 cup brown sugar
shake a liberal amount of cinnamon into it (to taste).
Then roll it on up, cut it into pieces (scissors work best!) and nest into a well buttered baking dish. I had enough left over for 4 bonus giant rolls.
Bake at 350' for 25 minutes. It's OK to under bake a little...that's the secret to the best cinnamon rolls!
For my icing I mixed 1 stick of light cream cheese with about a cup of icing sugar, a bit of milk and some vanilla....I was just winging it here and suggest you do too!
And of course I was way to excited to eat them to take a picture of the finished product!
