- FOR THE DOUGH:
- 3½ cups / 470g All-Purpose Flour
- ½ tablespoon salt
- ¾ tablespoons dried yeast
- 1 cup / 200g milk
- ½ cups / 100g water
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ cup /85g honey
- ¼ cup /60g melted butter or vegetable oil
- FOR THE FILLING:
- ½ cup (4oz/120g) butter
- 1¼ cups ( 7 ½ oz /210g) packed light brown sugar
- 2½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
In a separate jug add in the milk, water, honey and butter. Heat it in the microwave until it is warm (at blood temperature) and the butter has melted. Whisk in the eggs quickly.
Stir the wet into the dry to make a sticky dough. You can simply mix with a spoon until there are no flour lumps yet. Scrape down the dough from the sides of the bowl.
Cover the bowl, and let the dough rise for 2 hours at cool room temperature. It will triple in size
After this, REFRIGERATE THE DOUGH FOR AT LEAST 8 HOURS, preferrably over night. It can be refrigerated for up to 3 days before using.
When you're ready to make your cinnamon rolls, make the filling. I combine both sugars and cinnamon and set aside.Transfer the dough to a floured work surface, and roll it into a rectangle approximately ¼" thick. Spread room temperature butter all over the dough and sprinkle the filling over the top, be generous!
Starting with a long edge, gently roll the dough into a log. Don't roll it too tightly; if you do, the centers of the buns will pop up as they bake.Slice the rolls 2” thick and set them with their cinnamon face up.
In a deep baking pan lined with parchment space the buns in the pan.
Cover the pan, and allow the rolls to rise until they're have grown into each other and are puffed up, about 30-1 hour. (Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 375oF/ 190oC)
Uncover the pan, and bake the buns for 40 to 45 minutes, till they're a deep golden brown. Rotate the tray during baking so they can get golden brown all over.While they're baking, make the glaze. Combine 1-2 cups of powdered sugar and add 1-2 tablespoons of fresh lemon or lime juice. After cinnamon rolls are slightly cooled, drizzle with glaze and enjoy your warm rolls! :)
