This is a recipe that I wanted to make for a while, but each time, I found it easier to use my 30 min dinner rolls recipe, which is quick and straightforward.
But as this morning I had a little time to lose before going shopping (for my husband’s birthday which is coming up), this recipe is simple and even better.
For 24 rolls or 12 larger ones
- 1 packet of baker’s yeast
- 1/4 cup of warm water
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/8 for me is enough because this bread can be eaten both salty and sweet
- 3 tablespoons of margarine or butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 Tbsp of salt
- 3 and 1/2 cups of flour
For the cinnamon butter in small quantities
- 2 tablespoons low-fat butter for me
- 1 Tbsp of sugar
- 1 tbsp agave syrup or honey
- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder
For the cinnamon:
here are the two brands I tested, paid for out of my pocket, which have a real good cinnamon taste and not an old dusty taste!!!!
I don’t know the origin of the Bernard Ménès (the bottle), but the small box comes from Indonesia, and it’s delicious; I consume one of these small boxes in 6 months!
For the cinnamon butter
Mix all the ingredients and place in the fridge; breakfast on a hot slice of bread it’s delicious!
For the rolls
In the bowl of a food processor, add the yeast packet with the water and milk and add the sugar, butter, egg, and mix.
Put the salt in 3 cups of flour and add it progressively to the mixture 1/4 cup by 1/4 cup, letting the robot work well between each.
Add the last 1/2 cup of flour if needed; the dough should be very soft and elastic but not too sticky, so it’s up to you; I put 3 cups and a big quarter cup.
Let the dough grow in a warm place, covered, for 2 hours, fold it 2/3 times and roll it out into a large square or rectangle 1 cm high on a well-floured work surface, make six strips and cut them into four each, place the dough squares as they are on a baking sheet covered with baking paper, spacing them out well.
Preheat the oven to 180° and cook for about 15 minutes; they should not be too brown.
These are delicious rolls that are suitable for a snack as well as for a picnic.
