DIRECTIONS

  • Night before: Proof your starter. I usually get mine out of the refrigerator, where I store it, and add a cup of flour and a cup of water. Then I let the mixture sit loosely covered overnight on the counter. It should be bubbly and active in the morning.
  • Heat the milk and the butter in the microwave for one minute. Allow to cool slightly. Add yeast and let sit until yeast dissolves.
  • In a large bowl, mix the proofed sourdough, egg, salt and sugar. Add the milk mixture. Gradually add the flour to make an elastic dough.
  • Knead for 5 minutes.
  • Let the dough rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to approximately 9" x 13".
  • Sprinkle the surface of the dough with the cinnamon mixture (and raisins if you are adding them).
  • Roll up the dough.
  • Lightly score the roll to create 12 rounds. Cut firmly with a sharp knife.
  • Put the rounds in a lightly buttered 13"x9" pan.
  • Allow to rise until rounds are touching each other and the sides of the pan. Approximately 60 minutes in a warm place.
  • Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
  • Mix the icing to your desired consistency. Some people like it thicker, some prefer thin. Pour over the cinnamon roles while hot.
  • Serve warm.
