This recipe is my daughters favorite recipe and it is so good and so good for you. Ok; not exactly. But it is so good. It is a whole lot of cinnamon and sugar. I decided that I would up the recipe for the cinnamon glazed muffins by adding maple syrup. I put the syrup on the bottom of the muffin tin and then added the rolls. When the muffins were taken out, the bottom, flipped over the top, had a great layer of syrup.
These are normally served as rolls. I wanted to serve them as muffins because I wanted to add the maple syrup. Like these need more sweetness. If you are going do it, then go for it. I do not do it often, so go ahead and enjoy.
- 1 quart whole milk
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 packages active dry yeast or 4 1/2 teaspoons
- 9 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
- 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
- 1 scant teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 2 cups melted butter, plus more as needed
- 1/4 cup ground cinnamon, for sprinkling
- 2 cups sugar, plus more as needed
- 6 tbsp maple syrup
- For the dough: Heat the milk, vegetable oil and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat to just below a boil. Set aside and cool to warm.
- Sprinkle the yeast on top and let it sit on the milk for 1 minute.
- Add 8 cups of the flour. Stir until just combined, and then cover with a clean kitchen towel and set aside in a relatively warm place for 1 hour.
- After 1 hour, remove the towel and add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and the remaining 1 cup flour. Stir thoroughly to combine.
- Punching down the dough
- To assemble the rolls, remove half the dough from the pan. On a floured baking surface, roll the dough into a large rectangle. The dough should be rolled to about an 1/8".
- For the filling: Pour 3/4 cup to 1 cup of the melted butter over the surface of the dough.
- Spread evenly with a brush.
- Generously sprinkle half of the ground cinnamon and 1 cup of the sugar over the butter.
- Roll starting with one corner - roll tight.
- Pinch the seam together and flip the roll so that the seam is face down.
- Cut into 2" thick pieces and add to muffin tin filled with maple syrup.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and flip over after the muffins cool for a few minutes.
- Serve and enjoy!
