So, over this past weekend, my roommate and I decided to attempt to make a recipe that said it would yield 150 cinnamon rolls. We actually ended up with 158, and shared them with the people who live around us! It took about 4 hours in all, and was actually a lot of fun!! I’ve never used a recipe that yields such a massive quantity. It was such a great experience and definitely a great story!!!
1 gallon milk 24-30 cups flour 1 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup butter, melted 3 tablespoons salt granulated sugar, to taste
8 tablespoons yeast 2 tablespoons baking powder brown sugar, to taste
2 cups sugar 4 eggs cinnamon, to taste
1. Pour the milk into a large pot, heat until just warm, sprinkle in 1/4 cup butter, yeast and sugar. Do not stir; let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes.
2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking powder. Pour the milk and eggs into the dry ingredients. Stir until a dough just forms, adding more flour if needed. Knead for about 10 minutes, or until dough is smooth and elastic. Divide dough into four portions.
3. Roll out one of the portions until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Brush on some of the 1 cup of the melted butter and then sprinkle with granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Roll into a log and make slices about 1/4- 1/2 inch thick. Place into a baking dish. Repeat with remaining portions. Let rise 1 hour 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350.
4. Bake the cinnamon rolls for 25-30 minutes, or until golden. Remove, let cool about 5 minutes, and serve.
So there you have it; a recipe for about 150 cinnamon rolls!! This could definitely be halved, or even quartered!! The cinnamon rolls themselves are delicious!!
Have a wonderful day!
