A recipe for making about two dozen cinnamon rolls, no photos, since the ones I last made didn't quite roll out as they should have. Still yummy, though... :D
Original recipe is here
but it's in Finnish, so it is only good for 'this is what they should look like' photos, or do-you-feel-lucky translation by Google. :)Ingredients
17 fl oz milk
7 fl oz sugar
½-1 tbsp cardamom
1 ts salt
1.7 oz live yeast (about 0.9 oz of dry yeast, althought I did not use that)
51 fl oz wheat flour (approximation)
0.44 pounds butter
0.22 pounds crushed cark baking chocolate (about 74%) (optional)
sanding sugar, sugar water or leftover chocolate crumbs from fillingPreparation
* Take the butter out to soften before you start.
* Warm the milk until it's at skin temperature, if using dry yeast, then to 107*F.
* Crumble the yeast into the milk. If using dry eyast, mix it instead into part of the flour and add it before rest of the flour.
* Mix egg, sugar, cardamom and salt into the milk at this point.
* Slowly add the flour to the mix, constantly kneading until no more flour sticks.
* Finally mix the butter in small clumps.
* Dough is ready when it stays together and doesn't stick to the edges of the bowl.
* Cover the bowl with a cloth and let rise until the size of the dough is doubled.
* Put the dough on a working area (kitchen tale with some flour or specific baking platform.)
* Knead air bubbles out of the dough, then divide it in half.
* Roll the dough into a disk.
* Butter the top of the disk with melted butter. I mixed the sugar and cinnamon with butter, they could be sprinkled on the buttered disk as well, but I felt it worked better when mixed together.
* If making chocolate cinnamon rolls, sprinle the chocolate crumbles on the buttered disk now.
* Turn the disk into a roll and then cut it into sections about 0.8 inches wide.
* Raise on oven plate under a cloth for ½ hour
* Paint with egg and decorate with sanding sugar or left-over chocolate crumbs. (If using sugar water decoration, it is done after baking the rolls.)
* Bake in 440*F for 10 to 16 minutes.
