Gooey Cinnamon rolls using natural yeast
- 2 cups Whole Milk
- ½ cup Butter
- ½ cup Sugar
- ½ cup yeast starter (find out how to make it here)
- 4 cups All-purpose Flour + 1 Cup
- ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
- ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
- ½ Tablespoon Salt
- 2 Tabelspoons Butter (melted)
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cloves
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:
Mix Whole Milk, butter, and Sugar in a pan. Bring to a 180°F. (You are just scalding the milk here. If you boil it you went too far, it will curdle the milk.) Remove from the heat and let it cool until warm (110°F).

Put mixture in a mixing bowl and add the natural Yeast starter. (I now switched to my stand mixer and used a dough hook but you can stick with the mixing bowl and spatula if you don’t have one). Add 4 cups flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, and Salt. This mixture will be very sticky, that’s normal. Cover the bowl (I used a glass pot lid) that let rise for 6-12 hours (until doubled). After it has risen, turn out to a floured surface and add 1 more cup flour while kneading it all in.
Combine filling mixture and set aside.
|Adding cloves and nutmeg to the classic brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Roll dough into into a rectangle. Cover with a thin layer of melted butter, sprinkle liberally with filling mixture.
Starting with the long side away from you, roll the dough up towards you. Fold the dough up and close the roll by pinching it together.
Now take a pastry cutter (or a sharp knife) and cut the roll in half. Then cut the right half in half, and those 2 pieces in half until you have 4 equal pieces. Repeat on the left half. You will end up with 8 equal pieces.
Place them in a greased pan without touching each other (giving them plenty of room to rise).
Cover and let them rise about 1-2 hours (until they fill the pan).
and put them into the oven at 400 for about 15 minutes.
Remove and cover with frosting!
