Soft and fluffy cinnamon rolls filled with a buttery mixture of cinnamon, coconut sugar and walnuts and finished with a simple glaze. You can switch the walnuts for your favourite nuts or seeds or simply leave them out. So the choice is yours! They're best enjoyed warm with a cup of tea or coffee.

  • 330 g All-purpose flour
  • 40 g Raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 4 g Dried yeast
  • 180 ml Buttermilk
  • 3 tbsp Ghee, melted (or butter)
  • 1 Egg, medium
  • 110 g Ghee or butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp Cinnamon powder
  • 80-100 g Coconut sugar
  • 100 g Walnuts, dried toasted and chopped
  • 120 g Powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp Milk or cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, whisk the flour, the sugar, salt, and dried yeast together. Set aside. In a small saucepan, heat the buttermilk and ghee / butter over low heat until the ghee is melted.
  2. Stir the liquid mixture into the flour mixture. Add the egg and mix with a dough hook at slow speed until the dough comes together. Increase the speed and knead until the dough is soft and elastic.
  3. Turn out the dough and shape into a ball. Lightly grease the mixing bowl with a bit of oil and return the dough to the bowl. Cover with a plastic film and let the dough rise until almost doubled in size, 1-2 hours.
  4. Turn out the dough and knead briefly. Roll the dough out into a rectangle, about 30cmx40cm. Spread the softened ghee / butter on top. Mix together the cinnamon, coconut sugar and chopped walnuts and sprinkle it all over the dough as evenly as possible.
  5. Divide the dough from the shorter side into 9 even strips and roll up each strip tightly. Place in a 25cmx30cm baking pan lined with baking paper and cover with a large piece of plastic wrap. Place it in the fridge for 8-12 hours.
  6. Two hours before baking, remove the dough from the fridge and let rise in a warm place until puffy. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Bake for about 25-28 minutes, until they are golden brown.
  7. Mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together until smooth and lump free. Drizzle over the warm rolls and serve immediately. Store the leftover at room temperature for up to 3 days. | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

Even the cross-section of your cinnamon roll looks so perfect :p I was trying to make French toast with some "old" bread the other day, and somehow the outcome (esp the taste) was more like cinnamon
