Giant Cinnamon Roll

Why make a lot of small cinnamon rolls when you can save time and effort and make a cool looking, show steeling giant cinnamon roll?

This roll uses traditional elements, making a yeast dough, homemade cinnamon filling and finally topped with a soft spreadable frosting.

Perfect as a shareable breakfast or morning/afternoon treat.

Ingredients

Dough

1 package active dry yeast (7g)

1 ¼ cups warm water (110 degrees F / 43 degrees C)

2 tablespoons salt

4 to 4 1/2 cups water

Filling

1/2 cup softened butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

optional, 1 cup chopped nuts or raisins

Frosting

2 cups confectioners sugar (icing sugar)

3 tablespoons softened butter

2-3 tablespoons milk, or as required

Equipment

12" Dutch oven or skillet

Recipe Directions

  1. Place the yeast and warm water in a bowl to proof for 5 minutes.
    It is proofed when it has become frothy.

  2. Combine the proofed yeast mixture with the salt and 4 cups of the flour, it will be a sticky dough.

  3. Use the remaining 1/2 cup of flour on a solid work surface and kneed, slowly combing the remaining flour until smooth and no longer sticky. This will take about 8 to 10 minutes.

  4. Place the dough into a greased bowl, cover with plastic and leave to proof for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
    Tip: When cooking outside it is critical to place the dough in a warm location out of the wind, this may in some weather include placing in a covered warm box.

  5. After proofing the dough will have about doubled in size. Remove from the bowl and shape into a shape (or roll) into a large long rectangle.

  6. In a small bowl combine the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts/raisins if using. Combine well, the resulting mixture will be a grainy paste.

  7. Cut the rectangle of dough into 4 long strips then spread the filling evenly over all the pieces.

  8. Start rolling one of the pieces of dough, when this is used add the next strip of dough and continue rolling. continue adding an rolling until all the dough is used. Place the giant roll into the greased Dutch oven.

  9. Let the giant cinnamon roll rise in the Dutch oven for 30 minutes.

  10. Bake the giant cinnamon roll at 350 degrees f (180 degrees C) for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the center tests as done at 190 degrees F (88 degrees C).

  11. When the giant roll is cooked, leave to cool for 15 minutes and make the frosting.

  12. In a bowl combine the confectioners sugar, softened butter and 1 tablespoon of milk. Combine well until smooth. Add the remaining milk is small additions until the frosting is at the desired thickness. Thick enough to give a good coating, yet thin enough to spread or drizzle of the giant cinnamon roll.
