We have enjoyed sharing our Monday coffee recipes so much that we have decided to expand our horizons with a new series of dessert and breakfast recipes! But, these aren't just any old recipes. We have hand selected easy to prepare, simple treats that pair well with, you guessed it...Kcup coffee! Not only will we include a delicious recipe but, we will suggest a Keurig Kcup coffee to enjoy with it for optimal taste!
Up this week...Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls.
This is a household favorite in my family. The best part is that you can prepare the rolls the night before and bake them fresh Sunday morning. There is nothing better than waking your loved ones up to the amazing smell of cinnamon rolls in the oven. In addition, this recipe will make two batches of dough. I always freeze my second batch to be enjoyed with minimal effort on another Sunday morning.
P.S. I should mention that I prepare the dough in a bread maker but, don't worry, preparing them the good ol' fashioned way works just as well.
Let's get to the recipe...
You will need:
1 C plus a dash of milk
3 T oil
1 egg plus 2 egg whites lightly beaten
1/2 C sugar
4 C all purpose flour
1 dash of salt
3 t yeast
-Combine the ingredients in your bread maker on the order suggested by the manufacturer. I always go with wet ingredients first, then the flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Prepare using the dough cycle of your bread maker plus add an extra hour of rise time, total time in bread maker is about 2 hours 20 minutes.
-Remove the dough, punch down and divide in two.
-Roll each dough ball out into a rectangle on a slightly floured surface, approximately 12x6 inches.
Now its time for the filling, you will need:
3 T melted butter
1 C brown sugar
-Brush the rolled out dough with butter. Sprinkle each rectangle with 1/2 cup of brown sugar and top with cinnamon (I don't measure this, just cover it really well, it is a cinnamon roll after all).
-Roll the dough up jelly roll style and cut into equal sections. (about 10 sections per roll).
-Spray 2 8inch round baking pans with cooking spray and fill each with the cinnamon rolls.
-If you are not going to bake them right away, cover each pan with saran wrap and place in fridge. I prepare the dough on Saturday, place one pan in the fridge for Sunday morning. I cover the second pan with aluminum foil and freeze.
-When you are ready to bake simply pull them out of the fridge and let them sit on your counter for about an hour or until they have risen to at least the edge of the pan.
-Bake at 350 degrees on the middle rack for about 15-20 minutes minutes.
-Let them cool for about 5-10 minutes.
Now it is time to ice them, you will need:
1 C powdered sugar
about 1 T milk
a dash of vanilla
(I have been making this icing for so long, I don't measure anymore!)
-Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir until smooth.
-Drizzle over the cinnamon rolls while they are still in the pan. Drench them, we are certainly not counting calories with this breakfast!
-Cut and enjoy!
Your family will think you are a super hero with this delicious breakfast treat. Let me tell you, they taste even more amazing with a hot cup of coffee! The cinnamon truly enhances the flavor of your favorite brew. There is so much flavor in these babies that I prefer to pair them with a regular non- flavored roast that has a strong body such as Brista Prima Colombia.
