One bread dough done 5 different ways



Today I am teaching a class at the Pinners Conference! When I was asked to teach a cooking class for the conference the first thing that came to my mind is a bread class. I am not at all a bread expert but I have made rolls many times in my life. One recipe in particular I have made more times then others. So I knew that I needed to share my overnight cinnamon roll recipe done in 5 different ways!

So here it is!


Overnight Roll Dough

1 Tablespoon yeast
3 cups warm water
1 c. sugar
1 Tablespoon salt
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup oil
5 cups flour + 5 cups flour


In a mixer add yeast, warm water, and sugar. Combined and let sit for 10 minutes. Then add salt, eggs, oil, and 5 cups of flour. Mix for 5 minutes on medium speed. Then add another 5 cups of flour and mix for 5 to 7 minutes on medium speed. Then let rise 1 hour. Roll dough into a rectangle on a floured board and spread with butter, sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Roll together and slice individual roll slices and place into a well greased or sprayed pan. Cover with thin cloth. Let rise for 8 hours on your kitchen counter. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes then frost them.
