Eggless Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

Finally i baked today Eggless version of cinnamon rolls...I prepared it as a healthy version with whole wheat flour without preparing completely with all purpose flour, i decreased the quantity of all purpose flour and increased the quantity of whole wheat flour..To receive benefit from the wholesomeness of wheat it is important to choose wheat products made from whole wheat flour rather than those that are refined and stripped of their natural goodness. Whole grains are a rich source of magnesium, a mineral that acts as a co-factor for more than 300 enzymes, including enzymes involved in the body's use of glucose and insulin secretion..whole wheat flour is not the main ingredients of baked goods, as it adds a certain heaviness which prevents them from rising as well as white flour, this is the reason i have added less quantity of all purpose flour in this cinnamon rolls..Coming to this cinnamon rolls its a eggless version but not the vegan, since i used melted butter to the dough which turns this cinnamon rolls too delicious...We enjoyed having this cinnamon rolls for our evening snacks...Yummy cinnamon rolls goes straight to Madhuram's Whole Grain Eggless Baking Event (Wheat) and to  Susan's Yeastspotting hosted by Nick of Imafoodblog...

2+1/2cups Whole wheat flour
1cup All purpose flour
1/4cup Melted butter
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1tbsp Sugar
1tsp Salt
1+1/2cups Luke warm water
2tbp Cinnamon powder
2tbsp Brown packed sugar
2tsp Butter
3tbsp Confectioner's sugar

In a small bowl, add the active yeast, sugar and salt in luke warm water , give a stir and keep aside, let it sit for 5 minutes until it turns foamy...take together the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour and melted butter.

Gradually add the foamy yeast to the flours and knead as dough...dust the dough with enough flour and knead for few minutes until its turns soft..arrange the dough in a greased bowl , let it sit for an hour in a warm place..

Flatten the dough with a rolling pin and brush the butter over the flattened dough and springle the packed brown sugar, cinnamon powder over the dough..roll the dough as a loaf...

Slice the dough as thick or thin slices as u desire...Arrange those slices over a greased baking mould..cover it with a plastic wrap and let it sit again for an hour until they double their volume..Preheat the oven to 350F..arrange the baking pan in the middle rack and bake the uncooked rolls for 25-30minutes until its turn golden brown..let them cool..

Serve with confectioner's sugar.

Delicious rolls. Eggless and with whole wheat.. what more to ask for ? Looks perfect.

I learned a great trick for slicing this from my blogging idol, Joe of Instead of using a knife, loop some dental floss around the "loaf" and then pull it taut - it slices them perfectly with no smooshing at all.

Thanks for submitting to Yeastspotting!

Priya, I dont mean to be negative.. but this recipe really did not work for me..

First, the dough was really sticky.. which meant that it did not roll well.. so we used flour to pull it together.. coz of that the rolls came out with flour dustings on it..

Secondly, the rolls were really bitter.. I don't know if they are generally supposed to have less sugar (to be healthy) but the lack of sugar in the recipe was making me doubt this from the beginning..

Lastly, the dough, and the roll smelt funny.. it had a rawish (yeast-y?) smell to it..

I am not listing these to berate the recipe, but am just looking for fixes, since I really want to make these (my bhabhi loves cinnamon rolls so..) Also, I followed the recipe to the T..

Do let me know...

Hi Dream Catcher...thanks for ur comments..wat made me surprised is while kneading the dough u always need to be careful..While kneading,u have to knead the dough by adding little by little the foaming yeast..i think u might have added completely the yeast,thats the reason u got a sticky dough and bitter and coming to the bitterness, i didnt get my rolls bitter since the 2tbsp of brown packed sugar i used for rolling my rolls got melted while baking and turned the rolls very much sweet..mine smelled very much flavourful and the smell of the yeast was completely masked by the cinnamon smell..Wish urs might have turn better next time..Hope this helps!!
