I have undertaken the BBA challenge for 2011 but I am not one to follow directions. I am making the recipes in the order that they appeal to me or what I have a desire to bake. This does however mean that I will be on my own during the challenge without a number of supporters. My family decided they wanted some cinnamon rolls, so i pulled out the bba and went to work
The recipe called for whole milk, powdered milk, or buttermilk, so I made my own buttermilk by adding about a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice to 1 and 1/4 cup 2% milk. I creamed the sugar, salt and butter together, mixed the egg, lemon extract and added the flour, yeast, and warmed buttermilk. I didn't have any almond extract so I just left it out. The dough was a little wet so i worked in some extra flour and the dough became pliable and tacky. The dough was allowed to rise for a couple hours and then rolled out. I coated dough with brown sugar and cinnamon then cut up a stick of butter and distributed it evenly throughout. I rolled the dough and cut them about 1 and 3/4 inches apart. The dough went for a final proof and then baked, I roughly time my baked goods and use color and temperature as my cues. While the rolls baked I made a frosting out of powdered sugar, vanilla extract and warm milk.
The rolls tasted even better than they look and I'm officially off my eating plan.
