BAKE IT: Perfect Cinnamon Rolls

Perfect for Sunday mornings, brunches, and anytime you want the best cinnamon you can make. You'll never buy store buns once you see how easy these are to make.

Full time 45-60 minutes
Serves 4-6

The needs-

8 tbsp melted butter (in total)

For Dough:
2 1/2 cup flour
1 1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

For Filling:
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp melted butter
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp salt

For Frosting:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp milk

The know-

Lightly grease a 9" round dish and set aside. Preheat oven to 425'.

In a measuring cup pour white vinegar and then add milk bringing it to the 1 1/4 cup line. Let sit for 5 minutes to create baking soured milk.

In a mixing bowl whisk together all the dry dough ingredients.

In the measuring cup mix together the soured milk and 2 tbsp melted butter.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and form a rough but slightly crumbly dough.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board.

Knead for 30-40 seconds until an even dough forms.

Roll dough out in a rectangle roughly 9" by 12". Allow dough to rest for a bit.

In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients.

Add in melted butter and work into a crumbly moist mixture.

Returning to the dough, brush it lovingly with 2 tbsp of melted butter.

Spread filling mixture across the surface, leaving a 1" space along one side running width wise.

Slice into 8 even strips, you may end up with a tiny 9th strip or nub, this will get discarded.

Roll each strip, towards the un-filling covered edge and gently press down. This will create a seal stopping it from unrolling.

Continue until all strips are rolled.

Place one roll in the middle of your greased pan and the remaining rolls around it.

Brush with remaining butter.

Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes or until a golden color begins to form.

Allow to rest in pan for a moment.

Run a knife around edge to loosen and allowing the buns to slide out of pan.

In a small bowl stir cream cheese until smooth.

Add in milk and powdered sugar, mixing until smooth and well blended.

Pour frosting over warm buns and serve immediately. Cheers!
