The ticket here is to work with Instant Dry Yeast and to have Saran Wrap on hand, as that will help boost the rising process. It's a very simple process!
You can make these cinnamon rolls in advance, you just need to do a few minor adjustments.
The heavy cream hack is often used for canned cinnamon rolls BUT we like to do things 'From Scratch' around here!
The heavy soaks into the cinnamon roll dough giving them a richer flavor that balances out the sweetness, makes them extra fluffy, and helps create a syrup in the pan that keeps the cinnamon rolls moist and soft!
Once you try it out, you won't make them any other way!
I've notice that many French bakeries will add a buttercream-like icing on top of the cinnamon rolls, which makes for a beautiful presentation! However, I think the perfect time to glaze a cinnamon roll is a few minutes after being pulled out of the oven. The icing melts to form an irresistible glaze on top that is mouth!! watering!!
Cinnamon rolls stay good at room temperature for up to 2 days, in the fridge up to 1 week, or in the freezer up to 2 months. I recommend storing them in an airtight container or wrapping tightly in Saran Wrap.
First, I recommend using active dried yeast instead of instant yeast, as it'll perform better when making these cinnamon rolls in advance.
Store the cinnamon rolls prior to baking them. It would be like canned cinnamon rolls, except homemade!
If already baked (which is my typical case), I would wrap them tightly in Saran Wrap or place in a freezer safe bag. Then, I let them thaw in the fridge overnight before warming up in the oven the next morning.
Place frozen rolls evenly on pan and cover with plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray to keep from sticking to rolls while rising. BAKE – Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Carefully remove plastic wrap. Bake 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
I truly hope you all enjoy this treasured recipe that has nestled its way into our hearts here in the ABM kitchen! ’till next time… xxL
