This Sweet Saturday a recipe for cinnamon rolls.


  • 450 gr of white flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 50 gr of sugar
  • 50 gr of soft butter
  • 200 ml milk
  • 22 gr of dried yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 100 gr soft butter
  • 100 gr brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon (or a bit more if you really love cinnamon :-)
  • 1 egg
Sieve the flour and mix with the salt and sugar, than rub in the butter. Heat the milk until warm, blood temperature and mix with the yeast, add the egg. Combine the 2 mixtures, using the dough hook or by hand, until springy and smooth. Cover and leave to rise for about 30 min in a warm, draft free place. 
Mix the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and egg to make the filling.
Knead the risen dough lightly and roll out a quarter to form the base of a cake-tin (diameter about 23cm). Roll the reminder into a large rectangle. Spread the filling over the rectangle and roll up. Leave a strip on one side filling free. Roll the rectangle up towards the free strip, egg wash strip if need be to make it stick, but usually a bit of water works too.
Slice the roll into 8 slices, set these on the base, well divided. Bake for about 30 minutes at 180°C.
