If you're looking forward almost instant gratification cinnamon rolls, you need to try this yummy recipe. I saw it awhile ago on www.joythebaker.com & she got it from http://bakingbites.com. I adapted it slightly & hope you give it a try!
1 1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 t. salt
4 t. active dry or rapid rise yeast
2/3 c. warm milk (100-110 F.)
3 T. oil
1/2 t. vanilla
2 T. butter, room temp
2/3 c. brown sugar
3/4 t. cinnamon
1 c. powdered sugar
1-2 T. milk
1/2 t. vanilla
In a large bowl (I used my Kitchen Aid mixer), combine the flour, sugar & salt. Dissolve the yeast in a small bowl with 1 T. sugar & the warmed milk. Stir the milk mixture, oil, vanilla & egg into the flour mixture. Mix well, until very smooth. Let rest for 15 minutes.
As the dough rests, mix the topping ingredients together in a small bowl until crumbly.
Divide the batter between 12 greased muffin cups. Sprinkle the topping evenly on top of the batter & press the mixture down into the dough with your fingertips. ( I forgot to do this because I was talking on the phone with my daughter!!! You know how that goes...we all try to do two things at once!)
Place pan into COLD oven, then set the temperature to 350 degrees.
Bake for 20 minutes, until lightly browned & the center of the muffin springs back when lightly pressed.
Cool for at least 30 minutes before mixing the icing together. Drizzle the icing onto the muffins.
Now have yourself a delicious muffin. Leftovers can be frozen & reheated.
