Dessert Cinnamon Rolls

Dessert Cinnamon Rolls

These cinnamon rolls are sweet and delicious.
I love the combination of the fragrant rum and cinnamon.

Ingredients: six 10 cm rolls

(Recipe ID: 888224) "Simple Basic Sweet Bread Dough Kneaded By Hand" ...or your choice of bread dough
120 g of strong bread flour
Butter (or margarine)
20 g
A. Granulated sugar
2 tablespoons
A. Cinnamon powder
to taste
Raisins, cranberries, etc. your choice of dried fruits
to taste
B. Rum
50 ml
B. Granulated sugar
50 g
Glaze (optional)...beaten egg or milk
as needed
C. Granulated sugar (optional)
as needed


1. Put the B. ingredients in a pot. When it comes to a boil, add the dried fruit and boil on high heat until the liquid evaporates. Let it cool naturally.
2. Return the butter to room temperature or soften it in the microwave.
3. Make (Recipe ID: 888224) until the you let the dough sit after the first rising. Then place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and use a rolling pin to roll it out.
4. Gently stretch out the dough, while releasing the gas. Make 20-25 cm wide x 25-30 cm high rectangles, as seen in the photo.
5. Open a 3-5cm hole in the center and coat the entire piece with the butter from Step 2. Sprinkle the A. ingredients on top.
6. Use a paper towel to thoroughly dry the moisture from the dried fruits in Step 1 and place them on top of Step 5.
7. Starting from the end closest to you, lightly and loosely roll the dough from Step 6. You can brush the seam with beaten egg to help prevent it from coming apart.
8. Slice Step 7 into 6 portions. I usually use a kitchen twine or thread to cut it.
9. Place Step 8 into a tart or muffin pan. You could also just place them right on a parchment paper covered baking sheet.
10. Cover Step 9 with a plastic bag and let them rise a second time. About 30 or more minutes. * I use the bread rising function on my oven (38°C for 30 minutes).
11. After they have risen, coat with the glaze and dust with the C. granulated sugar. You can skip this Step if you'd like.
12. Bake for 15-18 minutes in a 190°C oven and they're done. -Adjust the baking time according to your oven.
13. These cinnamon rolls are closer to a dessert than a bread. I love the fragrant rum and cinnamon. The luxurious bread dough is also delicious.
14. The total amount of powdered ingredients comes to 160 g. I learned from my friend's bread making class that this amount is easy for beginners to knead by hand. It definitely is easy to work with.
15. These are great too! (Recipe ID: 888880) "Caramel Cinnamon Rolls"
