Cinnamon Rolls, Homemade - per roll

Number of Servings: 36


    6 cups of King Arthur bread flour (and 1.5 cups to add later when kneading for a total of 7.5 cups)
    1/3 cup canola oil (and 2 Tablespoons for use when rising)
    1/2 cup granulated sugar (honey, molasses, brown sugar and natural sugar all make lovely substitutions and wonderful flavors)
    1 1/4 cup water - hottest your tap produces
    2 tablespoons yeast - if you have a health food store, get it there - is much less expensive and better acting than at a grocery store off the cooking aisle shelf!)
    1/2 to 1 Tablespoon salt (if you are using sea salt, you can use less)

    Topping - Make this TWICE - 1 time for each cake pan
    1/2 cup parkay squeeze butter
    1/2 cup raw sugar
    1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon cinnamon


Making Bread Dough:
In a large bowl, in this order, add:
6 cups flour
1/3 cup oil

Mix the contents together. Then knead. Add more flour as needed (I usually use 1 1/2 cups or so more flour).

Knead until the dough is not clinging to your hands and springs back when you push it down.

Roll kneaded dough in about 1 tablespoon oil. replace in large bowl. Cover with a towel and let sit until doubles (anywhere from 1 to 2 hours, depending on temperature and humidity).

When has doubled - punch down the center of the bread and knead it again. May have to add a little more flour.

Cut into halves. Roll into 36 balls. Put 18 (6 rows of 3) into a greased cake pan.

Make topping by microwaving for 1minute the topping ingredients. Pour topping over the rolls.

Set formed dough aside and let rise again until doubled.

Bake in preheated over at 350 for 35 minutes.

Number of Servings: 36
