Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls

Ok, who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls? Well I do and I love the smell of cinnamon rolls as they are baking more than anything. These rolls are delicious and you can either have them with icing, or no icing. I prefer no icing, considering they have enough calories as it is without the icing, but I did make some because my husband loves the icing. Don’t be afraid of making cinnamon rolls, honestly they are very easy to make.

First we need to get the yeast ready so in a small bowl, add the warm water, yeast and a bit of sugar. Set aside and let it activate for a few minutes. In the mixing bowl of your mixer, add the milk and melted butter. Add the eggs, salt and 1/4 cup of sugar, you don’t have to add a lot of sugar now because we will add more sugar when we make the rolls. Mix a bit and then add the yeast mixture. Mix well so that all the ingredients are well incorporated. Now the only thing that’s left is to add the flour, and we’ll add 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups at a time.
