Soft n Fluffly rolls baked to perfection, something I would love to eat during coffee breaks.
I love the smell of Cinnamon, especially when its used in baking. I have tasted these rolls “N” number of times and seem to never get bored of its divine smell or taste 🙂 What’s so inviting about this spice ?? Whatever is the reason, does not stop me from using it again and again 😀 These rolls are incredibly moreish for sure.
There are different methods of making these rolls. What I have made is using my own recipe, which suits my taste buds. The rolls are soft when straight out of the oven. Store it in an airtight container if you intend to keep it for a few days (which was not the case here).With this basic recipe , the combinations are endless. You can use dry fruits filling, nutella filling , cardamon and nutmeg filling ………..endless….. The amount of sugar I have (1/4th cup) used is just right. If you are more of a sweetish liking person , then about 3/4 of a cup can be used.
