Reasons Why Cinnamon Rolls Do Not Rise?

Essentially, cinnamon rolls do not rise because the yeast used is expired, likewise, due to killing the yeast by utilizing too cold or too hot water. Also, not allowing sufficient time for the dough to rise. Moreover, the oven was hotter than 200°F when proofing the dough. If the oven is exceedingly hot, this will prevent the cinnamon rolls from rising.

Step By Step Instructions To Make 90-Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Step 1 

Grab a saucepan and place the milk; heat until it boils, then remove from heat. Afterward, add in the butter, then stir until it melts. Set aside to cool down.

Step 2

In a bowl, add and whisk together the 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 cup of bread flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Then add the water, egg, and milk mixture; drop the batter at the stand mixer with a wire hook. Add the remaining 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 1 cup of bread flour to the bowl. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the dough until it incorporates.

Step 3

Just as the dough is incorporated, flour your board or tabletop. Place the dough and knead until it is elastic and smooth for 10 minutes, or you can utilize the dough hook in a stand mixer. Keep in mind that we need a soft dough; avoid adding too much flour. The dough will spring back when it is ready.

Lightly flour your board or tabletop and roll out the dough into a 12×9 inch rectangle. Spread the butter-cinnamon mixture using a pastry brush, then press lightly, so it does not spill out when you try to roll it.

Tips and Tricks For 90-minute Cinnamon Roll Recipe

Please do not kill your yeast; remember to allow your milk to settle before adding the yeast; the temperature must be 37° C to 115° C to activate it. Any hotter than that may kill the yeast before the dough can rise. The dough is mixed well once it is sticky and it starts pulling away from the sides of the bowl.

The proper way of proofing is one of the essential factors contributing to the cinnamon roll’s overall effect. Cover the bowl that contains the dough and place it in a dry and warm spot in your kitchen. It may be near a warm window or on top of the oven. Use softened butter instead of melted butter for the cinnamon filling. It will enable you to spread the filling evenly over the dough. Never forget to flour your board or tabletop lightly; this is to prevent the dough from sticking.
