Cinnamon Rolls



3/4 C milk
1/4 C butter
3 1/4 C flour
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1/4 C white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C water
1 egg
1 C brown sugar

1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C raisins

Vanilla Glaze:
115g icing sugar
1 Tbsp warm water
1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in butter; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.

2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; mix well. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.

3. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes. 

4. Mix together butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.

5. Roll the dough out into a rectangle approximately 23 x 30 cm. 

6. Spread with the raisin mixture.

7. Roll up tightly from the longest side. Cut the roll into 12 equal pieces. 

8. Place the rolls on an oven tray, cover with oiled clingfilm and set aside in a warm place for about one hour, until doubled in size.  

9. Bake at 200 degrees celcius for about 25 minutes or until lightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack. 

10. Make the vanilla glaze by mixing the ingredients together. Drizzle glaze over the buns once they have cooled slightly. 
Enjoy the cinnamon rolls warm with a cup of tea or coffee. Best eaten fresh.
