Cinnamon Roll ala Cinnabon

Have you ever had cinnamon roll in the morning with a cup or tea or coffee?  It's completely heaven!  There are various bakeshop or cafe where you can buy this lovely sweet pastry.  My favourite is definitely Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls although the price is a bit dear but it's worth it.  In the Philippines, The French Bakers is also a good place to buy cinnamon. 

According to what I have read, this delightful pastry originated in Sweden. It is known as kanelbulle which means "cinnamon bun". It's interesting to know that they even have a day of celebration every October 4 in honor of cinnamon bun. They call it "kanelbullens dag."
I could not remember where I got the recipe (below) on the internet but I got this website www.grouprecipes.com which I think has similar ingredients and procedure.

1 (1/4 oz) package of dry yeast
1 c warm milk
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/3 c margarine
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
4 c flour

1 c packed brown sugar (powdered similar to caster sugar texture)
2 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1/3 c margarine, softened

1 1/2 c caster sugar
1/4 c cream cheese (kraft easy cheese)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt

  1. To make the rolls, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  2. Knead the though into a large balle, using your hands. 
  3. Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about an hour or until the dough has doubled its size.
  4. Roll the dough on a floured surface until it is approximately 21"x16" in size, 1/4" thick.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 F or 200 C if fan forced.
  6. To make the filling, combine the ingredients into a bowl.  Spread the filling on the surface of the dough.  Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon evenly.
  7. Roll the dough down to the bottom edge.
  8. Cut into 1 3/4 " slices and place in a lightly greased baking pan.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
  10. While the rolls are baking, prepare the icing.  Use electric mixer when mixing all the ingredients.  Beat until fluffy.
  11. Remove the rolls from the oven and spread on top with the icing.
