Cinnamon Rolls made in ninety minutes

Cinnamon Rolls made in ninetly minutes


3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup margarine, softened
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1 egg
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Original recipe yields 12 rolls)

Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in margarine; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.

In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; beat well. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.

Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, softened margarine.

Roll out dough into a 12x9 inch rectangle. Spread dough with margarine/ sugar mixture. Sprinkle with raisins if desired. Roll up dough and pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal size rolls and palce cut side up in 12 lightly greased muffin cups (put tray under if using muffin cups). Can also use a deep pan/ tray lined with baking paper. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. (Can also be left in fridge overnight, taken out and left to warm up to about 30 minutes). Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius (375 degrees F).

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until browned. Remove from muffin cups to cool. Serve warm.

Cream cheese icing

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup softened margarine
2 oz cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

Plain glaze

1 tablespoon of softened butter
1 cup powdered sugar
A dash of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of milk

Topped each roll with a small dab (go easy so as not to overwhelm the rolls with megawatt sweetness) when they were just fresh out of the oven, which melted and drizzled over each roll attractively.
