Giant Cinnamon Roll
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 30 min.
This turned out really good and is a different way to serve a familiar treat. I didn't have heavy whipping cream so I used regular milk in the dough. I also choose to use a different icing on mine.
This was a huge hit when I made it this past weekend for breakfast. Ok, maybe it was more brunch or lunch since I got up a little late. It's simple to do and impressive as all get out. I don't make a lot of breads or rolls from scratch but this was easy to do. Thanks.
Although I did not get a chance to taste it, I received rave reviews from the ladies who did. It was an easy recipe to make but just time consuming; I had to use a low-temp oven for the rise of the bread. It made the entire house smell wonderful!
I like the mechanics of this: just to make one Texas size roll. I'm glad that I upped the sugar /cinnamon for the filling as it needs it. Since not everyone in the household likes caramel, I opted just to glaze it instead.
I loved the sauce on this - it came out very much like a butterscotch. The rolls themselves were perfect, soft texture.
The idea is really cute, and the bread part is really tender and delicious. The topping needs a bit more specific direction. Stir or not stir the sugar? Does it make a syrup? About how long should it take? I got impatient and ended up with a tasty, but crunchy topping. I did substitute fat free half and half for the cream in the bread dough and skim milk in the topping, and it was no problem.
