The latest success story was a batch of Cinnamon Rolls. Holy Cow, these are good.... I mean really, really GOOOOOOOOD. Light and tender, perfectly sweet - I felt guilty not sharing. Not!
Back to my standby cookbook, Sourdough Jack's Cookery, there it was under the heading Fruited Sourdough Breakfast Rolls just waiting to be whipped up. All I can say is you gotta try this recipe.
¾ cup starter
1 cup evaporated milk
3½ cups flour
¼ cup soft butter
3 tbsp sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp soda
1½ tsp salt
3 tbsp melted butter (I needed 4)Stir starter, milk, and 2 cups of the flour in a large mixing bowl. Cover and let sit overnight in a warm place.
¼ c packed brown sugar (I needed ⅓ cup), mixed with
1 tsp cinnamon (little extra never hurts)
|First night's dough|
Cover and let rise until doubled. They were smelling good at this stage.
|Rolled and Risen - one of these I cut a little too big.|
I made an icing with 1 tbsp butter, 1 cup powered sugar and some of the remaining evaporated milk and a splash of vanilla. The icing was a little thick so it wouldn't melt and run off the roll.
Yep, these were a huge success - definitely doing these again. Next batch of this sweet dough may become kolaches.
