4 cups flour
1/3 cup castor sugar
1 packet instant Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
6 Tbls butter
1 egg
1/4 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 Tbls cinnamon powder
For The Cream Cheese Frosting
110 g cream cheese
125 g unsalted butter, room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
2 – 3 Tbls milk
1 tsp
vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients together.
In a small pot, warm up the milk and butter until milk is warm and the butter is mostly melted. Let the mixture cool before adding to the yeast to prevent killing the yeast. Add the warm milk and butter to the flour mixture.
Add the egg.
Beat on low speed, gradually increasing to
high until completely combined, about 2 minutes.
Add the flour a bit at a time until combined and the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl and form a ball.
On a well floured surface, knead dough for about 10 minutes until smooth and you can stretch a piece of dough out between your fingers without it breaking. This means the gluten has developed and your dough will be pillowy soft.
Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl and cover. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
While the dough rises, make the filling.
Combine the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside.
Once the dough has risen, roll it out into a long rectangle about 18 x 12 inches on a well floured surface.
Spread the butter for the filling all the way to the edge of the dough. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the butter, pressing it down to stick to the butter.
From the long end, roll the dough away from you into a tight roll, sealing the bottom edge down by pinching the douch together.
Use a very sharp knife to cut the dough into 12 even rolls. Place the rolls in a 9 × 13 inch pan lined with baking paper. Cover loosely with a dish cloth and allow to rise for another hour until doubled in size and puffed up.
Bake the cinnamon rolls at 180 degrees C. for 30 minutes or until they are golden brown and no longer doughy. Allow to cool.
While the rolls cool, make the cream cheese icing. Whisk the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, milk, salt, and vanilla extract on medium speed until light and fluffy.
Spread the icing evenly over the 12 rolls.
Enjoy warm!
