Scandinavian Cinnamon Rolls
I guess it's the same stuff as sold by IKEA, but mine are better, of course, because homemade:)
The recipe is adapted from the same magazine as the previous one (Home-Style Cooking).
To make 24, you will need:
1 pkg (7g) dry yeast
1/4 c warm water
1c spelt+whole wheat + 3c regular flour
1c warm milk
For filling, use
3tbsp softened butter
cinnamon to taste
In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water. In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and butter cut into small cubes. Add yeast+water, milk and eggs, mix till dough forms. It will be very soft. Cover and refrigerate several hours, I actually made it yesterday morning but only found time to get back to it this morning, after nearly 24 hours, but it turned out fine.
Use a lot of flour on your hands and surface as the dough will be very sticky. Divide it in half, roll each half into a rectangle of ab. 10x12in. Spread with butter, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, roll up and cut each roll into 12 slices. You then can place them in (greased) muffin cups so the result will be similar to what you see in the picture, or just place on a greased baking sheet, which I had to do with the other 12 as I only have one muffin pan. They won't look so cool but they'll taste all right. Cover and let rise for 30 min to 1 hour. I did 30 minutes because they did overtime in the fridge:) Bake at 190*C for 25 min. or until browned.
Cover with glaze. For glaze, you'll need:
3/4c powder sugar
2tbsp soft butter
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
enough milk to create a smooth paste
Cream butter and sugar, add remaining ingredients, beat until smooth. Spread on top of rolls. Enjoy!
In other news, we still have nice mild autumn weather, though it's actually winter according to the Celtic calender. Not one storm yet! How about you?
