Hey! I have a great idea. Why not start a holiday tradition of delivering these delicious cinnamon rolls to your friends and cohorts?
Growing up, my mom always made them for her good friends at Christmastime, and you could literally hear the primal groans of pure joy rising from the rooftops of our town. I’ve carried on the tradition through the years and have won friends and influenced people just by delivering these rolls. They really are that good.
***This is the original Cinnamon Roll recipe! All other sweet roll recipe variations that I do come from this.
Let’s start by making the dough.
Mix 1 quart of whole milk, 1 cup of vegetable oil, and 1 cup of sugar in a pan. “Scald” the mixture (heat until just before the boiling point.) Turn off heat and leave to cool 45 minutes to 1 hour. Go fold laundry or sculpt or play Twister with your mailman or something.
When the mixture is lukewarm to warm, but NOT hot, sprinkle in 2 packages Active Dry Yeast.
Let this sit for a minute so the yeast gets all warm and moist and happy.
Then add 8 cups of all-purpose flour.
Stir mixture together. Cover and let sit for at least an hour. Go throw away the rest of your wrapping paper or build a Lego Rottweiler or do Yoga or watch Home Shopping Network and order a frozen pizza oven for your countertop or some cellulite cream.
After an hour, the dough will look like this.
Now add 1 more cup of flour…
1 heaping teaspoon baking powder…
And 1 “scant” (less than a full) teaspoon baking soda and 1 heaping tablespoon of salt.
Stir mixture together. At this point, you could cover the dough and put it in the fridge until you need it—overnight or even a day or two, if necessary. Just keep your eye on it and if it starts to splurge out of the pan, just punch it down. Or, of course, you can just go ahead and make the rolls.
