I was multi-tasking like a mother last week when I looked up to see we were in the middle of a damn blizzard, so I added another task to my plate because what could be better than homemade cinnamon rolls and stovetop hot chocolate after school during a blizzard??
Seriously, while my rolls rose, I was working on the elliptical while bleaching my teeth and defrosting pork chops.
Okay, these rolls are easy and so, so, so, so good.
Whisk together 2.5 cups bread flour and a packet of yeast and set it aside. Then use the whisk attachment on your stand mixer to mix together 1/4 cc. sugar, an egg, 1/4 c. milk, a half c. water, and 2TBSP melted butter. Pour the flour and east in a little at a time until you have dough. This is when you need to switch to the hook attachment for your mixture and then let the mixer beat the dough while you tidy up your mess.
Wrap the dough in plastic and let it rest.
SHHHHH-- the dough is resting. Quietly tiptoe across the kitchen and preheat your oven to 200.
