Cinnamon Rolls by Karen Robertson

TheCinnamon rolls are an occasional indulgence that we all deserve. In our home we dont make them often so they are very special. It is challenging to recreate the exact texture of a cinnamon roll but these come close.

Substitutions:
I like to substitute ½ the flour in the recipe with light buckwheat flour for an even better texture. The first time you make cinnamon rolls follow the recipe exactly and then begin to make your own substitutions. This way you will know what the dough is supposed to feel like before you begin to customize.

Though I havent tried it, I believe that a dairy-free version would include substituting the dry milk powder with ground almonds in the Workable Wonder Dough recipe. Water could substitute for the milk in the Cinnamon Roll recipe (butter could be substituted with a non-dairy margarine).

Tips:

  • Whenever you make gluten-free bread or dough, take humidity into consideration. Always hold back a little of the water until you can see how wet the dough will be. Gluten-free flour absorbs moisture from the air and too much water can ruin a recipe. The dough needs to be firm enough to roll out with a rolling pin without sticking.
  • It is important to tightly pack the cinnamon rolls into the pan, otherwise, they may become too firm.
  • A warm towel placed over the pan during the rise phase is important. A good way to warm a towel is to place a wet, cotton dishtowel into the microwave for 40 seconds. Place the towel over the pan of cinnamon rolls and then cover with another towel or a piece of foil. This will allow for a nice rise.

Good luck.

Cinnamon Rolls
Makes nine 2-inch rolls

Every now and then you must treat yourself to a cinnamon roll! Packing them tightly into a baking dish helps to keep them moist throughout. Adapted from Wendy Warks Living Healthy with Celiac Disease (An Affect, 1998).

1 recipe Workable Wonder Dough
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
½ cup raisins
1 1/3 cups confectioners sugar
3-4 tablespoons milk

Butter an 8-inch round cake pan.

Roll out dough to a 9 x 18-inch rectangle, approximately ½-inch in thickness. Brush dough with 3 tablespoons melted butter. Sprinkle sugar, cinnamon, and raisins evenly over the dough. Beginning at one of the 9-inch sides, roll dough into a log shape. Using a sharp, clean knife, cut log into 9 equal pieces. Arrange rolls in prepared pan, packing tightly together and keeping the swirl side up. Cover with a warm, wet towel and let rise one hour. Bake at 400F. for 15-20 minutes. While cinnamon rolls are baking, whisk together confectioners sugar and milk in a small bowl. Drizzle mixture over hot, baked cinnamon rolls.

I have been so hungry for cinnamon rolls, but never could find a recipe. I can't wait to try these.
Thanks!
