We were walking along Yuyan Lu in Shanghai and came across a shop named Cinnamon Swirl. It sells cinnamon rolls There's a long queue waiting to buy it. Freshly rolled and baked, served with cream, chocolate or peanut butter. Looks yummy.
My husband says why don't you make it. I'm like I made before but you don't eat them. He said I will, well just one.
Ok, I've don't cinnamon roll but I find most recipes end up having a hard bread after it cools down. I recalled I have some ricotta left, and ricotta cheese tends to make breads soft due to its high fat content. And ricotta with orange, that seems like an attractive combination. So here I am experimenting as I go along.
250g bread flour
40g orange juice
1tsp instant yeast
Add these ingredients after 1st rise.
Using my Panasonic SD104 bread mixing mode, so easy, threw all the ingredients in and
1 hr later,, it's risen nicely. I took it out, fold and let rest.
Using my rolling pin, flatten it and roll out into rectangular shape. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar. And I used orange sugar, without measuring, just sprinkle enough to cover the whole surface. Roll up, and sealed the ends. Using s rectangular pan, I decided to have 9 pieces, cos it fits nicely into my pan.
Let rise 1 hr. Sprinkle a little of cinnamon on top.
Bake at 190 degree for 15 mins. The roll as expected, turns out really soft, with a tangy taste. I think I just found a great way to make cinnamon rolls.
