Alton Brown. And this recipe is really nice, because you make the cinnamon rolls the night before, let them sit in the refrigerator over night, and then in the morning you bake and enjoy! These make your kitchen smell DELICIOUS too!
So, go get your recipe, ingredients, and I'll show you step-by-step what to do! It might look scary, but I promise, its super simple!
First step, start by whipping your eggs, sugar, butter, and buttermilk in your favorite stand mixer using the whisk attachment. Once it's evenly combined, add your flour, salt, and yeast. Mix very briefly with the whisk attachment, and then to the dough hook on your stand mixer.
The dough hook looks like this:
Oh, and make sure you have your filling combined. Mix the melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon together until it looks crumbly and delicious, similar to this:
Now roll out your dough into a rectangle-ish shape (it doesn't have to be perfect). And keep your filling at the ready! PS: The filling is WAY better than anything you would get elsewhere. Only 1.5 tablespoons of butter for 12 cinnamon rolls?!?! I'll take that any-day!
Now, is your dough rolled out?
They look sooo good already and you can't even eat them! Now, cover this pan in plastic and place in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, cook cinnamon rolls according to the recipe instructions, and voila!
You have warm, homemade cinnamon rolls! Ice and devour!
