Raisin Cinnamon Rolls


For the dough
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup bread flour
3 teaspoons instant yeast
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, diced
1 egg for glazing

For the filling:

1/3 cup raisins
4 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon  butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Combine flour, cinnamon, salt, sugar and yeast in a large bowl, add in egg and milk and mix to get a dough. Knead the dough for few minutes, add butter and knead until it all blends and knead is not sticking to hands. Cover the dough and leave it for hour and a half on room temperature.

In a small bowl combine brown sugar, raisins and cinnamon for the filling. Move the dough to a wooden workspace, knead for minute or two, and cut it to 2 pieces. Roll each piece to 6 inch x 12 inch. Coat each piece with butter and top with brown sugar mixture. Roll up the knead and cut into 6 pieces.

Place a baking paper into a pan and arrange the rolls on the paper. Cover with plastic wrap and leave it for 30 minutes. Remove the wrap, coat the rolls with beaten egg and insert the pan into a heated oven. Bake on 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve while warm.
