A cinnamon roll that can be eaten 30 minutes after waking up
I’ve been on the search for a cinnamon roll that I could make at night and enjoy in the morning, but hadn’t been able to find one. All the recipes involved at least an hour’s wait time before baking.
For my mom’s birthday, I wanted to create a special breakfast, so I crafted these cinnamon rolls. I used a variation on one of my favorite bread doughs and kneaded in sprinkles!
Can you believe I’ve never baked with sprinkles before? I can’t believe I’ve been missing out for so long. The possibilities are endless – cakes, cupcakes, cookies and more!
These do have a slightly different texture than your traditional cinnamon roll, but they’ll do when you need a quick cinnamon roll. The dough is a little stiffer and thus the dough is a little chewier, but still a delicious treat!
So what’s the technique for these – prepare dough as normal, let rise 30 minutes, shape rolls, slice, place on baking sheet, put in refrigerator overnight, take out and let pan warm up while preheating oven and then BAKE!
