In The Kitchen
Want to help with the baking?
Sure. What are we making?
Let’s make cinnamon rolls.
I love cinnamon rolls. I’ve never made them before.
It’s easy. I have my grandmother’s recipe.
What ingredients do we need?
Let me check the recipe. Let’s see, for the dough we need flour, butter, milk, salt, eggs, sugar, yeast and water.
Ok, I’ve got the ingredients on the table. Now what?
Mix up the sugar, butter and salt in a mixing bowl while I heat up the milk. Then we’ll mix it together.
Ok, now when that is all combined, we add the butter and let it melt in. Then we can add the eggs and yeast.
Then the flour?
Yeah. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Then we let it rise, work it down to get any air bubbles out of the dough then let it rise again.
That’ll be a little while yet.
True. After the dough has risen again, we can roll it out and get ready to add the next ingredients.
What other ingredients do we need?
We need melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon.
I have the dough rolled out.
That looks good. Now you can carefully pour the melted butter over it. Make sure you cover all the dough.
What if it spills onto the table?
Don’t worry about it. We can clean it up later.
When you have that done, spread a layer of brown sugar over the dough.
Go ahead and put more on. Cover the dough thoroughly.
Ok, that’s done.
Now you can sprinkle the white sugar over top of the brown sugar and then sprinkle on the cinnamon.
Done. Now what?
Now we roll the dough up, cut it into slices, let it rise a bit and bake the cinnamon rolls for 30 to 40 minutes.
