Essential Tools:


Part 1: Sourdough Roll Recipe


Recipe Ingredients:


Recipe Instructions:


1. Activate the Starter: In a mixing bowl, combine the sourdough starter, warm milk, melted coconut oil (or butter), and honey (or maple sugar). Let it sit for about 10 minutes until it's bubbly.


2. Add the Egg: Beat in the egg until well incorporated.


3. Incorporate Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the flour and salt to the mixture, stirring until a sticky dough forms.


4. Knead the Dough: Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.


5. Rise and Rest: Place the dough back in the mixing bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise for 4-8 hours, or overnight until it has doubled in size.


Part 2: Cinnamon Filling Recipe


Recipe Ingredients:


Recipe Instructions:


1. Prepare the Filling: In a small bowl, mix the softened butter and honey (or maple sugar) until it forms a smooth, spreadable consistency.


2. Roll Out the Dough: On a floured surface, roll the dough into a rectangle, approximately 16x10 inches.


3. Spread the Filling: Evenly spread the butter and honey mixture over the dough's surface. Sprinkle the ground cinnamon evenly on top.


4. Roll It Up: Starting from the long side, tightly roll up the dough to form a log. Pinch the seam to seal.


Part 3: Honey Glaze Recipe


Recipe Ingredients:


Recipe Instructions:


1. Mix the Glaze: In a bowl, whisk together the honey, softened butter (or coconut oil), powdered sugar, and vanilla extract (if desired) until it forms a smooth glaze.


Assembly and Baking:


1. Slice the Rolls: Cut the dough log into 12 equal slices.


2. Prep the Pan: Grease a cast iron skillet or line it with parchment paper. Arrange the slices in the dish with a bit of space between them.


3. Final Rise: Cover the dish with a clean cloth and let the rolls rise for another 30-60 minutes until they're puffy.


4. Bake: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes until they turn golden brown.


5. Glaze and Serve: Drizzle the honey glaze over the warm rolls and let it soak in. Serve your homemade sourdough cinnamon rolls and enjoy!


Customization Tips:


  • Substitute honey with maple sugar for a different sweetness.

  • Use coconut oil instead of butter for a dairy-free option.


With this sourdough cinnamon roll recipe, sweetened with honey and filled with warm cinnamon goodness, you'll create a delightful treat that's perfect for breakfast or a cozy dessert. Get creative with your substitutions and savor the joy of homemade baking!
