You really want to know?!
I promise they’re delicious and so soft.
If you are a sourdough newbie, check out my directions for how to make your own starter in my blog post about my sourdough bread.
Have you noticed a theme to all of my baking? It all comes back to that jar of sourdough starter!
- 1 stick butter
- 400 grams All Purpose Flour
- 125 grams Active Sourdough Starter
- 160 grams Milk
- 20 grams Honey (or agave)
- 1T Cinnamon
- 165 grams of Brown Sugar
- 2T Cinnamon
- 2T Butter, melted
- 1 cup Powdered Sugar
- 2T milk (I use 1% but you can use whatever milk you have on hand)
- 1T Butter, melted
Instructions for Night Before:
- Let stick of butter come to room temperature. Add flour to the bowl and cut the flour into butter with a fork to incorporate evenly throughout.
- Add the sourdough starter, honey (or agave, I’ve used both without noticing a difference), milk and cinnamon. Use a spatula to incorporate ingredients until all the flour is incorporated. Knead dough until soft and smooth.
- Let sit overnight.
Instructions for the Morning of Baking:
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and lightly butter baking dish (I use an 8×8 glass Pyrex baking dish).
- Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and set to the side.
- Punch down dough from yesterday and knead again into a round ball. Flour a flat surface to use for rolling out dough. Use a rolling pin to roll dough into a rectangle roughly 18 inches x 12 inches.
- Brush melted butter onto the rectangle of dough leaving approximately one inch around the edges. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mixture on the butter and coat the dough evenly.
- Tightly roll the dough from one of the short sides so that the dough forms a log. Cut the log into 9 even slices. Place the rolls into the buttered dish. (I have split the log into 12 before to fit into a larger dish, but cooking time will need to be reduced to 25 minutes if you do this).
- Let rise at room temperature for about an hour.
- Cook rolls for about 35 minutes (or until the tops are golden brown). Check the bottom of your pan to make sure your rolls aren’t burning on bottom.
- While rolls are cooking, make the glaze by adding the powdered sugar to a bowl and adding the milk and melted butter. Mix until the glaze is glossy and smooth.
- Pour glaze over warm rolls and enjoy!
Let me know if you make these yummy rolls! I can guarantee that once you start, you won’t stop!
