So everyone’s been posting apple and pumpkin recipes. I am also trying to convince myself to make the transition. Fall has it’s own charm, but it’s hard to bid goodbye to summer! These Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls make for a great breakfast in the winter season.
This was my first yeast recipe and I can tell you I wasn’t disappointed. Working with yeast is not as technical as I had thought. I kept looking for simple yeast bread recipes all over the web. But most of them required a stand mixer for making the dough, and I don’t own one.
After having read so many, I tried developing my own. This recipe is perfect for a bread novice like me.Cardamom and not cinnamon is the hero of these Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls.
I love cardamom as a spice, in fact a little more than cinnamon. Indians tend to use a lot of cardamom in there everyday cooking. It’s prominent in all Indian desserts(mithai). Also, this is what makes our masala chai so fragrant and yummy.
The Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls are a delightful spin on the Cinnamon rolls. A simple cardamom spiced yeast dough is brushed with loads of butter and cinnamon sugar and then rolled into these buns. They are so delicious, fresh out of the oven. Even better with the white chocolate sauce!
Few things I picked up, when working with Yeast
Yeast needs to be proofed, which simply is a method to check whether the yeast(an organism) is active or not.
You have to knead the dough for a few minutes, to make it smooth and elastic. And to develop gluten in it.
Then you need to let the dough rise, so that gluten and the bread can become more stable.
This Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls recipe is fairly simple and utterly delicious. I hope you get fall vibes as you see pictures of these buns 😀
If you try these Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls, leave me a comment or tag me on Instagram! And if the yeast is intimidating you, bake the Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Muffins. They are my favorite muffins to bake for fall!
