Artistic endeavors come in all shapes and sizes, but perhaps one of the sweetest is making something as scrumptious looking as a cinnamon roll. All it takes is a little know-how and some delicious ingredients to help make this kind of masterpiece. The good news is that with just a few simple steps, anyone can create this delectable delight. So get your baking supplies and let’s get rolling!
Gather the Necessary Ingredients
Before diving in, we need to get the right ingredients. That means we’ll need flour, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, a bit of salt, and some all-purpose yeast. This isn’t an exact science, so don’t be afraid to play around with the amounts – that’s part of the fun!
Once all these ingredients have been gathered, we can begin the process of making our cinnamon roll.
Step One: Create the Dough
The first step is to combine the sugar, flour, salt and yeast in a bowl. This is done easily by stirring all the ingredients together until the mixture is even within the bowl. Follow this by melting the butter and adding it to the mix.
Next, we add in some warm water to the mixture. Once everything is combined, knead the dough until it has a consistent texture. Once that is achieved, coat the dough with a bit of olive oil and leave it to the side for the next step.
Step Two: Add the Cinnamon
Now is the time to get your cinnamon in the mix. Generously sprinkle it over the dough until it’s equally dispersed throughout the bubbling mound. Next, roll it up with a rolling pin so everything is properly blended.
When that’s completed, sprinkle more cinnamon onto the dough and flatten it out with a cutting board. This will help when it’s time for things to take shape.
Step Three: Get Things Rolling
Now that our ingredients have all been blended, it’s time to get rolling! Start by cutting the dough in half and then into three sections. Take one of these sections and roll it up until it forms a large log.
Once we’ve got our roll of dough, it’s time to cut off the ends and make sure it’s round. This will give us the classic cinnamon roll shape we’re all hoping for.
Step Four: Bake
All that’s left to do is pop our masterpiece in the oven and wait for it to cook. When the timer goes off, we’ll know it’s ready. Let it cool for a few minutes and we can start to indulge in our warm, cinnamon-filled snack.
With the right set of instructions and ingredients, anyone can make their very own cinnamon roll. So the next time you’re in the mood for something sweet and spicy, throw on your apron and get rolling!
