Get in my belly, cinnamon rolls!

Time flies and holidays are just around the corner. Ok, not quite, but I’m using that as an excuse while baking lots of cinnamon rolls. First of all they are easy to make, but most importantly, they are so fluffy, soft and tasty. They just remind me of Christmas time (um..yeah, I love holiday spirit, if you couldn’t tell already).
Who doesn’t love them, right!? Well even if your answer to this question was “me!”, I have a solution – all you have to do it replace the cinnamon filling with nutella. Now that really is something that everybody loves.

Lets get going! Here is what you need:
For the dough:
  • 75g butter
  • 50g sugar
  • 5g salt
  • lemon zest
  • 1 big egg
  • 430g flower
  • 1 yeast
  • 300ml milk
  • 50g sugar
  • 5g cinnamon (or any other spices)
  • (or just nutella, doh)

The way to do it:
1. Mix the butter, sugar al salt until you get sand like texture.

2. Add lemon zest and an egg, mix until well combined.

3. Add yeast and half of the milk and half of the flower and mix for a few minutes. Then and the other half of the milk and flower and mix for about 10min. I would recommend you to use attachments for bread on your mixed, as it will get the job done easier. You want to see the gluten starting to emerge. Add flower if you need to, as the dough should be silky and tacky but not sticky.

4. Leave the dough in a covered bowl, at room temperature, to rest for about 2 hours or until it doubles in size. The bowl should be lightly oiled, as well as the dough, to prevent sticking.

5. When the dough rises you roll it out in a rectangle, about 80mm thick. It shouldn't be to thin, because that would make them chewy.

6. Spred the cinnamon filling on the whole surface equally (I made half cinnamon and half nutella filling)

7. Roll the dough in a "roulade" kinda of shape and with the seam side down cut it in 3cm pieces.

8. Cover baking tray with baking paper and put the cinammon rolls on it. You should leave some space between them, so they will have room to rise.

9. Again cover them up and leave to rise for at least 75min.

10. Preheat the oven on 175°C and bake for about 20-30min, unitl they are golden brown.

11. Eat them warm and ENJOY! (Mine were gone before I had a chance to take photos, oops)
