Valentine's Day Cinnamon Rolls (12 rolls) (KitchenAid Professional 600 standmixer製作,無standmixer,也可以像我以前手做麵包揉麵方式製作,差別不大)
材料及作法(1 cup=1杯=250ml, 1/4 cup=60ml, 1/3 cup=80ml, 1 tbsp=1大匙=15ml, 1 tsp=1小匙=5ml, 1 lb=454g)
2 cups unbleached bread flour
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour (I used 30% blend of white whole wheat)
3 tbsp buttermilk powder (Regular milk powder will work.)
2 tbsp sunflower seed oil
A.將以上幾項,放在KA standmixer大鋼盆裡,用wire whisk攪拌均勻
Put all the above ingredients into the mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook.
1 cup 2% milk
6 tbsp water
3 tbsp granulated sugar
1+1/4 tsp salt
1+1/2 tsp active dry yeast (一般商用乾燥酵母,非速酵/麵包機酵母)
Mix all the ingredients except butter from B and stir until all dissolves. With the ingredients from A in the mixing bowl, turn on the stand mixer and set the speed to 2. Gradually pour in the B mixture. Beat until the dough forms and becomes smooth, about 5 minutes. It's a slightly sticky dough. Shape it into a ball. Use a little flour to prevent it from sticking. Transfer it into a greased bowl and cover with a lid or plasstic wrap, then place the bowl in a warm oven with a pan of hot water underneath for fermentation.
Let the dough rise until double/triple in size. Take the dough out and shape into a ball. Rest for 15-20 minutes. Flaten it a bit and divide it into 12 pieces like cutting a pie. First shape them like dinner rolls. Then roll them out and shape them just like cinnamon rolls. Then stretch each of them out to about 6 inches long just like shaping baguettes. Use a pizza cutter to split it in half with one end still attached. Take the two halves by their ends and curve them in to form a heart shape. Mist the dough surface with some water with spray bottle after shaping.
Place the shaped dough with the baking sheet in a warm oven with hot water underneath for fermentation. Let rise until double in size.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp butter+3 tbsp sunflower seed oil
1/4 cup white whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350F, and bake for 20 minutes. All ovens vary. Adjust your baking time accordingly.
Brush with some brown sugar syrup right after baking.
