CINNAMON ROLL DOUGH
- 2 cups flour (260 grams)
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/4 cup butter cold (50 grams)
- 3/4 cup milk (180 grams)
**If using unsalted butter then add 1/4 teaspoon salt.
- 1 cup brown sugar (lightly packed) (200 grams)
- 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon (if desired)
- 1/3 cup butter softened (70 grams)
- 1/2 cup powdered / icing sugar (60 grams)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/2 -1 tablespoon cream or milk
Pre- heat oven to 350 degrees (180 degrees). Lightly grease and flour an 8 inch pan (pie, cake or even a 12 medium size muffin tin) I used a pie plate.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt, then cut in the cold butter* until it resembles coarse crumbs, then add the milk and mix with the fork until the mixture becomes a soft dough, turn it onto a lightly floured surface and knead just until dough is thoroughly combined.
Roll dough out to rectangle that is 1/8 inch thick.
*I like to place the butter in the freezer 20 minutes before using, then grate it with a large hole grater, that way it is much easier to combine to make coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon (if using).
Spread with butter and sprinkle with brown sugar / cinnamon mixture, pat down lightly. Starting with long end roll into a log, cut into 12-13 pieces, place the slices cut side up in the prepared baking dish (pie, cake or muffin). Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes (or until golden). Let cool before drizzling with glaze. Enjoy!
