Dangerously Addicting Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls

Sharing is caring!

For the love of sourdough!! This Sourdough Cinnamon Roll Recipe Is Ridiculous!

OK, if you’re a regular reader, you might be noticing a pattern.  I am in love with my sourdough starter!

It was time to feed my starter again and I’ve had a mad sweet tooth this week.  What better way to fix that than making cinnamon rolls??

I used to have a fear of certain baking tasks.  

One being, anything that needs rolled up.  There has to be a clinical name for this. 

Am I alone here??

I don’t know why.  But I was always in awe at my mother in laws Pumpkin Rolls (maybe if we get enough comments she’ll share the recipe?? ehem Linda??)  

The thought of the process and making them terrified me!

Pin me for later!!

But then I tried a pumpkin cinnamon roll recipe last year (again, look out in the future!) and I was hooked!  

My fears were ridiculous, I just needed to try!

So when I was looking for sweet ideas with my sourdough, cinnamon rolls jumped out at me! 

Okay, maybe they actually screamed. 

I have a ridiculous sweet tooth that I blame entirely on my dad. 

Growing up, on any given night you could find him sneaking to the living room for a bowl of ice cream or milk and cookies!

This craving for sweets wasn’t a special occasion, like Christmas or something to make the hubs smile in the morning.

Nope.  It was seriously just a need for sugar!

They are dangerous!  

Seriously.  Bake at your own risk!  

I should probably add a disclaimer that I am not responsible for binge eating…

 Dangerously Addicting Sourdough Cinnamon Roll Recipe

Ingredients

Dough

1 cup sourdough starter

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled (here’s how to make your own, homemade!)

2 eggs

1/4 cup warm milk

1 tsp yeast

3-4 cups flour

Filling

5 Tbsp butter, softened

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Frosting

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 Tbsp milk

Instructions

Dough

Add sourdough starter, salt, sugar, butter and eggs to your KitchenAid Mixer bowl.  Combine these ingredients with the dough hook.

Add yeast to the warm milk, mix in and allow to sit for 5 minutes or until foamy.

Add the milk/yeast mixture to the starter mix.

Gradually add flour, while mixing on setting 2, until you have a soft ball of dough that is not sticky.

Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until elastic.

Put the dough in an oiled bowl and allow to rise until doubled.

Punch down, and allow it to rise again. (I did the first rise in the afternoon and allowed the second rise overnight.)

Punch down again and roll out into a rectangle, 12″ x 24″.

Filling

Preheat the oven to 400°F

Mix the butter, brown sugar and vanilla.

Spread in a thin layer on your dough.

Starting on the long side, roll the dough into a tight log.

Pat the ends flat, then slice in one inch rounds.

Place them in 2 9″ pie pans. (12 rounds in each)

Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Frosting

Combine the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.

Mix until smooth.

Pour over top and serve!

Love this recipe. I’m on the final rise before I bake the rolls. My sourdough starter was at its peak and this dough rose beautifully both times. I can not wait!! I’ll post a picture when they come out of the oven.

2 mistakes with recipe first the yeast should be increased to 1 tablespoon and decrease cinnamon to 1 teaspoon other than that great recipe.

Is it safe to keep raw eggs and milk out at room temperature for this length of time while it rises?

Why don't they buns call to rise once they are rolled? The dough rose nicely both times but then I bake little pucks. Not sure. Flavour is good but next time I will let rise in the pan a bit to lighten them.
