ABC FEB 2012 # Glazed Cinnamon Rolls

This is my second post for Avid Baker's Challenge ( ABC )  and I feel kind of excited and guilty at the same time as I am really late for my submission of post for this month . I have to apologise for this as I was away to Vietnam for holiday ( yeah at last ) .In 2012, the ABC Bakers will be baking from The Weekend Baker by Abby Dodge .

                                                     
Honestly I have never use cinnamon in any of my bake before. The only time I ever eaten any bake goodies from cinnamon was the time when I will just grab some from Cinnabon ( hope I get the name right ) . I love the taste of it but was not a big fan of cinnamon tho . Well , I really love the soft and fluffy texture of this  cinnamon rolls. As usual , I have actually reduce the amount of sugar used in the filling . The original recipe calls for 113g of brown sugar and 113g of granulated sugar . I have reduce both sugar to 60g of brown sugar and 40g of granulated sugar. I have also follow the changes to the filling and used 2 ounces of flour and 1 tbsp of ground cinnamon for the filling.
The results : Crunchy on the outside , soft and fluffy on the inside. I am definitely gonna bake this again . I should have added coarsely ground roasted peanut into the filling . Since I baked this at 2.00 am , I dun wanna add more stunt to it .
My kitchen was fill the smell of cinnamon while baking this rolls. Really very tempting, makes my heavily snoring mom to wake up at 2.00 am when I was taking it out from the oven . We really can't wait to taste this delicious rolls. Mom says " guess we can sell this " and I just smile at her . LOL
Check out the soft and fluffy texture of the cinnamon rolls. You really dunno what you missing if you haven't try this before ... Happy Baking .

I just couldn't get enough of this cinnamon rolls . LOL . Believe it or not I have been baking this every week . Here's my improve version of the cinnamon rolls .
I have actually made 1 1/2 portion of the filling so that I will have extra filling to sprinkle on top before baking it. Since mom really love nuts, ( I mean she really love all nuts and its kind of lucky that she is not nuts tho, LOL . I am just kidding ) I sprinkled some of the extra filling and almond nibs on top of the cinnamon rolls before baking it in the oven for 35 minutes instead of 40 minutes . Hope you guys enjoy it too ... till then ..

    1. Hi Zoe, glad that u bought the book. This is really one nice cinnamon rolls that I immediately fall in love with. I have to tell u this story of my friend visiting me at my office when I was just about to eat my precious cinnamon rolls. She was telling me about her headache and feeling nausea. Then I knew I have to give away my cinnamon rolls to her as I heard that cinnamon can actually cure headache and nausea. She was doubtful when I told her that. Guess what , after eating it and rest for about 10 minutes , she told me " Thank you so much for your cinnamon rolls. I think it really helps to cure me . " I was telling myself " yaya and I didn't get to eat it . LOL " .. This is how much I love this cinnamon rolls . Take care ;)
