- 120 milliliters milk (warm)
- 40 grams softened butter
- 30 grams brown sugar
- 300 grams flour (without yeast)
- 2 1/4 teaspoons baker's yeast
- 1 small egg (at room temperature)
- 50 grams softened butter
- 80 grams brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- Mix the milk with the butter, sugar, and a pinch of salt until well dissolved.
- Add the egg, and stir.
- Add the flour and yeast. Stir again with a fork, until well mixed.
- Place the dough on a floured work surface, knead until dough no longer sticks to hands. Form a smooth and elastic ball.
- If you use a large egg, more flour is necessary.
- Put the dough in the bowl again, cover with plastic wrap,or a kitchen towel, and let rise in warm draft-free place for about 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled in volume.
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- On floured work surface, knead the dough lightly to remove air bubbles, and deflate.
- Roll out the dough to form a rectangle about 40x30 centimeters.
- Mix 80 grams brown sugar and 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon.
- Spread the butter on dough, and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Save some cinnamon to sprinkle on before baking.
- Roll up dough. Cut roll in 12 even slices, depending on desired thickness.
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper, and grease.
- Place the dough slices with the cut side up and close together (not tightening too much, as they will still grow in the oven) in the baking pan, and sprinkle with the remaining sugar and cinnamon mixture.
- Bake at 180 C, for 25 to 30 minutes.
- Each oven is different, so you should keep an eye on the baking, and do the toothpick test.
