Every Friday morning, I bake a batch of 'homemade' cinnamon rolls.
I make a big pan for our breakfast, and a mini pan for guests staying at the LOFT. The guests are always asking for the recipe so I thought I would share it. You won't believe how easy these are!!
2 loaves of frozen bread dough, thawed (I use RHODES, they come 5 to a bag) 6 tablespoons of butter, softened 1 cup of brown sugar 4 tablespoons of cinnamon 1/3 cup of sugar butter icing glaze (recipe below)
Thaw two loaves of frozen bread dough in the refrigerator or on the counter - I just follow the directions on the bag. Allow the thawed dough to rise for 1-2 hours in a warm area covered with a damp cloth. Roll the dough out into a rectangle onto a floured surface. Spread softened butter on the rolled out dough. Sprinkle sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon over the dough. Roll up the dough into a log. Slice into 2-inch thick rolls. Place into a buttered pan. Cover with a warm damp towel and allow to rise 2-4 hours (or overnight) in a warm area. When the rolls have doubled in size, bake them at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes until they begin to brown. Top with Butter Icing Glaze.
