Homemade Cinnamon Rolls from Scratch in 2 hours or less!
LeAnn R. Ralph
If Ive heard it once, Ive heard it a dozen times: "Make homemade cinnamon rolls From scratch Are you crazy That takes all day!"
Actually, it depends upon the recipe.
I have several recipes for homemade cinnamon rolls that do, indeed, take at least all afternoon, if not all day -- scald the milk and let it cool to room temperature 30 minutes; mix the dough and let it raise for an hour 1.5 hours; punch down the dough and let it raise for another hour 1 hour; shape into cinnamon rolls and let raise for another hour 1.5 hours; and then, finally, bake the cinnamon rolls 30 minutes -- for a grand total of 5 hours from start to finish.
But it doesnt have to be that way. You really can make homemade cinnamon rolls from scratch in two hours or less.
Heres my recipe:
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Let sit for a minute or two. Add the sugar and salt. Mix. Add the cooking oil or shortening, 2 eggs, 2 cups of flour and beat until smooth.
Stir in 3 more cups of flour. Begin kneading the dough, adding the final cup of flour. If the dough seems too sticky, knead in more flour, a quarter to a half cup at a time.
Let the dough "rest" for 15 to 20 minutes. I leave it sitting on the counter and use the time to wash up the bowl and other utensils and to clean off the counter top.
Roll the dough into a rectangle thats 24 to 30 inches long by about 16 inches wide. Spread with soft butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Starting at the wide end, roll into a log.
Cut the cinnamon rolls into equal sized slices approximately one inch wide each or slightly more and place into two greased 9x13 pans. Put in a warm place to rise for 45 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then turn out of the pans.
This recipes makes two dozen cinnamon rolls. If you want REALLY BIG cinnamon rolls, cut into 12 equal pieces 2 inches wide.
Total amount of time needed from start to finish including time to bake is about 2 hours.
