Bite Size Eggless Cinnamon Rolls/ Florets

Bite Size Eggless Cinnamon Rolls/ Florets 


When you have to host a party or arrange a potluck for kids or need to send some goodies to your kid's school for some party and they request you to make something pretty and yummy. Like me are you in a fix too??

Well, with me the occasion was a secret Santa that was planned for the kids in my apartment. And we all thought of bringing something from each family for the kids. I wanted to make something gorgeous yet yummy and dessert of course as kids loves sweets...:D 

I first wanted to make chocolate Kringle from my last post, but then it was too much of work on cutting and serving them to the kids. So though of making something bite size. 

I eventually ended up baking these lovely cinnamon bread Florets. Kids loved them ,and I was super Happy ..:) <3

Also as a part of celebration these Cinnamon bites goes to Angie' Fiesta  Friday Co hosted by Kalia and Mr. Fitz..
 Happy FF guys..  I was away from FF for quite a while,  but I am Back now... :-) :-) 

Ingredients
For dough
-  3/4 cup plain flour/ Maida+ some for rolling and dusting.
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp. milk powder
- 1/2 cup warm milk ( 2-3 Tbsp for brushing included ) 
- 3/4 tsp. active yeast
- 4 tbsp melted butter+ 1-2 for greasing 

For cinnamon butter
- 2 tbsp room temperatures butter
- 2 tbsp cinnamon powder
- 2 tbsp powdered sugar. 

Process
1. We will make the cinnamon butter first.  In a small bowl, take together butter cinnamon powder and icing sugar and mix them throughly. And keep this aside.
2. Take a small bowl, and add warm milk and powdered sugar. Mix them together till sugar dissolves completely.
2. Now add yeast to this mix, and stir. Let this milk rest for at least 10 minutes, or till yeast becomes frothy.
3. In a separate big bowl, take together flour and milk powder. Mix them nicely.
4. Once, yeast has bloomed nicely. Add this yeast milk to the flour bowl little by little.
5. Once entire milk is added to the flour, what you will have with you will be an absolutely sticky dough.
6. Now take 4 tbsp of melted butter and add to the dough.
7. And, start kneading the dough. Knead this for around 8-10 minutes. 
8. As you knead the dough eventually it will,start coming together. Though it will not be a firm dough but decent enough to bake a rough dough ball.
9. Grease the dough a little, and cover with kitchen towel or cling wrap and place this at hot spot for atleast an hour, or till the dough becomes double in size.
10. Once done, Knock the dough to deflate all the air. 
11. Since even now the dough will be sticky, take some additional dry flour and knead the dough to turn it into workable dough. It will take your 3-4 tbsp more flour to make sticky dough into firm dough ball.
12. Now, roll the dough ball in rectangular big disc.
13. Spread cinnamon butter evenly on the dough disc.
14 now, using your finger tips very gently roll the Disc vertically in one big log. 
15. Once done, taking a sharp knife cut 1.5 inch pieces from the log, as shown in pic. Below.

16. grease a muffin pan with some butter.
17. Place each small cube cut from log in each muffin mould. As shown in pic. Below 

18. Once dorm with rest, cover with kitchen cloth and let this rest for at least 20 minutes.
19. In the meanwhile pre heat the oven at 180 degrees C.
20. Bake the rolls in pre heated oven for 20 + minutes or till the rolls becomes nicely golden brown. In between brush them with milk at least twice. 

Your gorgeously cute cinnamon bites are ready..:)
