Today, I made cinnamon rolls. I started by making a standard roll recipe. It's a 30 minute recipe. That's what caught my eye. 30 minutes, versus 1-3 hours? Okay!
The recipe was enough for two batches of sweet rolls and that's when I got all scientisty...
After I made a batch of regular cinnamon rolls, I starting scheming...
I love orange rolls, and I love Tang. It seems like a natural progression...
DElish! At least I thought so. My kids thought the Tang rolls were "sour". I like them that way.
30 Minute Rolls
1 cup warm water
4 Tablespoons yeast
2 cups milk
1 cube (1/2 cup) softened butter
6 Tablespoons sugar
8 Cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
In a small bowl mix warm water, yeast, and sugar; cover set aside. In a separate bowl add remaining ingredients when yeast has started to grow add to other ingredients and mix together. Let rise for 10 minutes. Work into rolls. Put onto greased sheet and let rise for at least 10 minutes. Work into rolls. Put onto greased sheet and let rise for at least 10 minutes. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Makes 2 dozen.
I divided this recipe in half and rolled out, spread butter, sugar, cinnamon, nuts and raisins optional. For the "orange" rolls, I used Tang, cinnamon and nutmeg. If you dare try these, you may want to add sugar so your children don't tell you they are sour.
Hey Barry, these are definitely better than those Tang pancakes years ago...;)
