These days I don’t have time to cook any complicated dish, my kitchen scale is broken (actually not broken but I don’t have any spare battery for it) and 1 hour ago I was DESPERATELY craving cinnamon rolls! What to do? I checked few recipes and all of them required to weight flour, weight sugar, wait for the dough to rise bla bla bla so I decided to make my OWN super quick version of cinnamon rolls.
I had some puff pastry in the fridge which I rolled out. I then spread melted butter on it, lots of it to cover the full surface.
Then I sprinkled some granulated brown sugar on the top and dusted lots of cinnamon powder.
I rolled the pastry into one log. You don’t need to roll it really tight cause in the oven these little rolls will puff better if they have more space between lawyers.
To be able to cut the log easily I left the rolled pastry in the freezer for around 20 minutes or until you notice it is getting harder. Then I took it out, cut it in slices and placed them on a baking tray covered with baking paper.
I baked them in the oven for around 20 minutes (or until you see they become slightly brown).
When I took them out they looked super yummy but they needed something more so I just followed the advice of one of the various recipes and mixed some maple syrup with little milk and sugar until I got a thick consistency.
I poured a teaspoon of the mix on each roll. After half an hour there were only 3 left!
My own recipe worked!
