Classic Cinnamon Roll

I am a self-confessed disobedient baker. I have tried and tested recipes from friends and trusted online sites but I always, deliberately, don't follow them. I shouldn't have gotten those recipes, right?! I'm just too lazy to follow everything to the dot. So I always end up with something less than spectacular baked product or I finally get the recipe right after several (and few pounds on the belly) tries.

As usual, I found this Classic Cinnamon Roll recipe, one of our favorites, from Yummy magazine and I tried making them based on their recipe.

Yeah, it was good.

Classic Cinnamon Roll (my "more or less" version 'coz I don't follow exactly the recipe)

1/4 cup milk 
2Tbsp butter
 ------melt/heat; cool to room temp

1tsp of yeast
1/4 cup warm water
------mix until frothy
then whisk to the mixture
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
milk-butter mixture
then add flour to make dough

Knead for a few minutes and proof for, ideally, few hours. (I just hate waiting.)

Roll out dough and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Roll up the dough and cut into equal portions. Arrange them on a greased pan. 

Cover with lightly damp cloth and proof again. (I really hate waiting.)

Bake at 180-200 degrees C for 20-25 mins.

Let it cool and drizzle with some glaze or frosting. I made my sugar glaze by mixing butter, milk and powdered sugar and the choco glaze by melting granulated sugar, butter, milk and unsweetened choco powder.

Eat. Bake. Repeat.
