I've been wanting to bake cinnamon rolls for so long, but I just didn't have the push to do it. But when a dear friend asked me if I could bake some cinnamon rolls for her, I knew it was a sign that I really should try it. I couldn't bake these for the friend due to time constraint at the time she wanted to order, but I sure hope I could make it up to her one day.

Actually, the last time I ate a cinnamon roll was when I was still in high school! That must have been in 1994 or 1995! There was a fast food outlet in Seremban called The White Castle if I'm not mistaken, and they served really really yummy cinnamon rolls! So, in actual truth I am a little scared of baking this as I'm afraid I'm going to be disappointed since I remember loving the ones I had back in Seremban.

But I woke up this morning and I knew I just had to do it!

Searched the Internet (where else, these days) and found one recipe that seems to be a favourite among bloggers.

I'm sharing the recipe here, with some remarks based on what I did.

Cinnamon Rolls
Resepi asal: http://www.myresipi.com/top/detail/256

Bahan-bahan ( 10 biji ) - I made 12 instead

= Bahan utk Roti =
300g tepung roti
50g butter
1 biji telur
50g gula halus
100ml fresh milk/air (room temp)
8g dry yeast
1 sudu kecil garam
= Filling =
2-3 sudu kecil cinnamon powder (ikut suka ) - I don't want the cinnamon to be too strong, so I put just a tea spoon of cinnamon ground instead. It turns out just nice for me.
60g gula perang
20g butter-suhu bilik
= Icing =
50g cream cheese - suhu bilik
20g butter - suhu bilik
100g gula aising
secubit garam
beberapa titik vanila esen

I didn't use all of the cream cheese frosting. In fact I used probably only a quarter of it and it was sweet enough for me. So maybe you can make only half of this cream cheese frosting recipe.


Cara buat roti: I used my breadmaker, so if you do too, just put all the ingredients for the bread into the breadmaker (liquid first, then the dry ingredients). Set the function to dough and wait for one and a half hour. Hehe.

---If you're doing this by hand (oh my respect goes to you!), here's the cara2.

Gaulkan butter dengan tepung sehingga jadi macam serbuk roti
Kemudian masukkan gula dan dry yeast. Kacau dengan sudu sehingga bergaul rata.
Masukkan pula garam, telur dan susu. Uli sehingga tak melekat ditangan atau sehingga licin.
Wrap dengan plastik/ kain lembab. Biarkan naik sehingga 1.5 kali ganda. Bila dah naik, buatkan bentuk bulat sekali lagi dan rehatkan selama 10 minit.

---Once the breadmaker has done its job;

Bahagikan doh kepada 2 bahagian. Ambik 1 bahagian dan canaikan lebih kurang 20x25cm. Letakkan bahan-bahan filling.
Kemudian gulung. Bahagikan pula kepada 4 bahagian kecil( lebih kurang 4 cm panjang). Ulang untuk doh yang sebahagian lagi.

--- What I did was, I divided the dough into 2, and once I put in the filling and roll it, I cut it into 6. Repeat with the other half of the dough.

Lapikkan roti dengan muffin cup. Biar naik 1.5 kali ganda lagi. Bakar dengan suhu 180C selama 15 minit.

Sementara itu sediakan aisingnya. Masukkan semua bahan-bahan untuk aising ke dalam mangkuk. Pukul sehingga jadi bentuk krim.
Bila roti dan masak( ketika masih panas), letaklah aising 1-1/2 sudu besar ke atas setiap roti. Jangan letak terlampau banyak aising. Aising yg banyak boleh menghilangkan kesedapan rasa roti.

The verdict: Oh sooo yummy! I took the first bite and I was all yummmmmm-pejam pejam mata! I might try adding raisins the next time since I think The White Castle's cinnamon rolls had raisins in them too.
