Don’t you just love the endless amount of things you can do with dough. All of the different shapes and flavours, you know that whatever you make is going to be amazing because ANYTHING made with yeast is amazing right!
I was so excited to come across a new way to make cinnamon rolls. I mean my obsession with cinnamon rolls has no boundaries and today’s version is by far one of the best!
I took another trip on my World Tour and landed on a specific type of cinnamon roll popular in Iceland. I immediately set on making a batch myself. Basically these are large individually portioned rolls that are slathered with frosting, primarily chocolate, but I saw some vanilla and toffee versions too. Obviously you can frost with anything you like but make sure it’s an actual butter based frosting. That is what really takes these rolls over the top as the frosting melts and then sets and becomes so delicious!
I used a new recipe for the dough which is what I like to call my ”all purpose dough” because you can use the exact same recipe for anything whether it’s bread, rolls, donuts etc whatever you need that calls for dough, this recipe will work.
It’s a very simple recipe, just put it all together and let it rise. Then you have to fill and roll like you would making regular cinnamon rolls but instead of placing them close together, you leave a good amount of space between each roll so each one has a chance to spread and puff. Traditional Icelandic cinnamon rolls are usually flatter and wider but I like my rolls extra fluffy so I made them taller. The dough is also spiced with cardamom which is a beautiful companion to cinnamon but if that’s not your thing then leave it out.
As soon as they’re out of the oven, drench the tops with frosting and devour! They are sooo good all warm and fresh and just perfect to pick one up on the go.
What will it be?? Are you a toffee cinnaroll……
Or will it be chocolate………………………
