What if I told you… these could be whipped up in less than an hour.. would you believe me? START TO EATING-uno hora mi amigo. What if I told you this actually is a c i n n a m o n roll dough and you could make one batch of rolls use the rest for cinnamon swirl bread, orange rollls or fluffy Cinnabons? Would you send this recipe to a fellow baker? Preferably a busy one who doesn’t have 3 hours to babysit fluffy delicate+delicious rolls? K cool. Bring a friend. Let’s do this.
Obsessed with using Lehi Mills enriched flour- helps make these extra moist and delish. We’ve been using their bread flour for over 10 years.. and guess what.. I can get you 20% off+free shipping! Just use code: BRIT at checkout, and don’t forget to add some cranberry+blueberry muffin mix!
The fluffiest lightest fastest dinner roll

10 C. Flour
(only 5 at first, then add in..)
After kneading for about 8 min...
Place on floured surface and knead for a few more passes with a handful of flour.
Return+cover in the oiled bowl with plastic wrap/damp towel in a warm environment until doubled in size, about 15 minutes
Divide dough in two one per jelly roll pan and then divide into 20 rolls each 4x5 (five rows of four)
make it SUPER easy and try this method:
pull and pinch as you go. I like this trick just remember to flour your hands every couple ones you do.
Make sure to smooth out the tops as you place them pinching the bottoms to hold the ugly seems in there.
Paint tops with an egg wash or cream/milk + flakes of salt
Cook for 12 min at 400° or 350° on convection for 13ish min.
⭐️If tops are getting too dark loosely place a sheet of foil over to shield the direct heat :)

Making cinnamon rolls/swirl bread? Split dough in two
Roll out each
Smear each with half stick of room temp butter
Sprinkle with 1/4C. white sugar+1T. cinnamon
Let’s roll it out :) Starting with the short end, roll the dough up tightly into a log. Pinch the seam closed and place the loaf seam side down in your prepared pan Or slice with twine for rolls.
Cover loosely with plastic wrap/damp towel and let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes, until the rolls/loaf has risen above the pans. Just before baking, egg wash or lightly spritz the tops of the with water. (Helps with cracking and adding in a little moisture)
Bake loaves for 30 minutes/ Cinnamon rolls for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cover with aluminum foil if the bread begins to brown too quickly. Cool loaves in the pan for 20 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Smear rolls immediately with frosting so the buttery goodness can become one with the glorious gooiness from the centers of the rolls.
