Easy Homemade Cinnamon Rolls Recipe with Flax
To Make the Dough:
2 cups lukewarm water
1-2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons butter
Be sure the mixture is not too hot, then sprinkle 2 Tablespoons yeast on top and let the sugar start to work on the yeast for about 3 mins when it starts to look bubbly.
Add to the mixture:
Then slowly add, while still mixing:
3/4 cup Flakes o' Gold or Ground Premium Gold Flaxseed
1 cup of flour at a time until the goal of 3 1/2 cups.
1. Kneed the dough (folding it over itself and just mixing it well) for about 60 times -more is better to help the yeast be mixed throughout and start working on the dough.
* The key to great dough is: You want your dough to be sticky.
2. Then let it rise for about 30mins -1hr or until double in size.
3. When this is done, punch the dough down, and kneed about 30 times.
Cinnamon Roll Insides -aka Filling:
1 packed cup brown sugar
1-1/2 sticks of butter
Cinnamon to Sprinkle
Step 1. Heat up 2 cups water to luke warm -it should feel warm to the touch -not too hot because then it can kill the yeast.
Add 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Step 2. Add 3 Tablespoons butter or oil (this is a great time to melt the butter and dissolve the the salt).
Step 3. Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons or 2 packets of Active Yeast
Step 4. Add 2 eggs
Step 2 and Step 3. Roll out dough to about 1/4 -1/2 inch thick and as wide and long as you want.
The wider you roll out the dough, the bigger around the cinnamon rolls will be.
Step 4. Spread the butter over all the rolled out dough. If it is
too hard, warm the butter in the microwave or use a knife to slice pieces of it everywhere.
Step 5. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the butter.
Step 6. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the sugar -less or more depending on your love of cinnamon. -Cover all the dough.
Step 7. Roll the dough up
Step 8. Slice the dough into delicious and easy homemade cinnamon rolls
Step 9. Pinch the dough together tightly, to keep everything inside!
Step 10. Admire your creation and get ready to cut them and place them into pre-greased pans -any kind of pan will work!
Step 11. Cut the dough into ~2" pieces -depending on how big you want them to be -use the first one as your experiment.
*Tip: you can also use a clean piece of dental floss to cut your cinnamon rolls -slide it under the roll and place it where you want to cut and then pull and twist -Tada! :)
Remember, they will rise to about 1 1/2-2x the present size.
Step 12. Place them in your favorite pan to let them rise.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown around edges depending on your oven!
Cool on the pan for about 3 mins and then place them onto plate to finish cooling.
Drizzle with icing or leave plain.
Store in a airtight container, if they last that long!
