Danish Cinnamon Rolls







Danish Pastries are yummy, crispy outside and soft inside. I have always find making danishes a challenge especially Danish Cinnamon Rolls. This is Alex Goh's recipe which i modified to my taste.

Danish Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients:

( A) 280gms bread flour
       120gms plain flour
       60 gms sugar
       1|2 tsp salt
       1 and a half tbsp milk powder
       2 tsp yeast

 ( B) 1 egg
        190 ml cold water
        40 gms butter

  (C) 200 gms pastry margarine (roll into a rectangle)

  ( D) 200 gms Raisins, 1 tsp cinnamon powder and 50gms melted butter.

Method:

Mix (A) together and add in (B) to knead into a smooth dough.
Roll into rectangle and wrap dough with ( C ) in 3 folds.
Press the edges together and wrapped with a piece of clingwrap and put in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
After 1 hour take out, cut into 2.
Keep half in fridge.
Take half, roll into rectangle and placed pastry margarine in the centre and fold both ends into the middle.
Roll dough into 3 times the size of pastry margarine.
Wrap and put in refrigerator again for 20 mins.
Continue doing these for 3 times. Leave dough in fridge overnight.
Take out dough, roll into rectangle about 3mm thick.
Brush with melted butter, sprinkle brown sugar and raisins on the dough.
Roll like a swiss roll and cut into 7 ~8 sections.
Arrange roll on greased tray and let it proof for 45 mins.
After 45 mins eggwash and placed a half cherry in the middle.
Bake for 20 ~ 25 mins or until golden brown.
Brush with diluted apricot gel.
