Cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven

Simply irresistible. The warm, freshly baked yeast dough steeped in butter, sugar and cinnamon. In addition a good cup of coffee. Is there anything better to start on a (sunny) day? Or just a little bliss, when you come back from a rough hike on a stormy autumn day to warm yourself up at the open fireplace. The typical Scandinavian cinnamon buns are simply worth a sin.

Ingredients

  • 500 g Flour
  • 42 g Fresh yeast
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 75 g Sugar
  • ½ TL Cardamom
  • 75 g Butter
  • 250 ml Milk

Cinnamon and caramel filling

  • 40 g melted butter
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 2 pck Vanilla sugar
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon

For brushing before baking

  • 100 ml Cream

Before starting, all ingredients should be at room temperature. Sift the flour into a bowl. Add 75 g of sugar and cardamom and mix until dry. Form a hollow in the middle with a spoon. Crumble the yeast in and mix with a little warm milk, salt and a little sugar (1 teaspoon) until the yeast has dissolved.

Covered in a warm place let it rest for at least 20 minutes.

Heat 75 g butter and remaining milk lukewarm. Add to the dough and knead well with a dough hook for 5 minutes.

Cover again and let it rest for another 30 minutes.

Heat the mixture of 40 g butter, 50 g sugar, 2 packs of vanilla sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon and mix well. Dust the work surface with flour and knead the dough briefly with your hands again and then roll out. Brush with the butter-sugar-cinnamon mixture.

Roll into a roll and cut off 2 cm thick slips. Brush with the cream and bake in a preheated oven until golden brown at 180-200 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Depending on your preference you can dust with powdered sugar, decorate with sugar icing or simply enjoy it pure.

Wonderfully airy, interspersed with a fine cinnamon and caramel flavor

Warm out of the oven they are best. You can also freeze and bake them again.
