Recipe Ingredients for Cinnamon Rolls

1/4 ounce active dry yeast
1/8 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
3/4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 cup butter, melted
1/8 cup applesauce
3/4 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 t milk

Recipe Directions for Cinnamon Rolls

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. In a small saucepan, heat the buttermilk until warm to the touch.

  2. Pour the buttermilk and oil into the yeast mixture; mix well. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda. Stir the flour mixture into the liquid 1 cup at a time, until a soft dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 20 times. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes. In a small bowl, stir together the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out into a large rectangle. Spread the brown sugar and butter mixture over the dough, roll up into a log and pinch the seam to seal. Slice into 1 inch pieces and place cut side up in a lightly greased 10x15 baking pan. Cover and let rise 30 minutes or cover and refrigerate overnight. If baking immediately, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.

  5. Mix powdered sugar and milk to make frosting, spread over warm rolls.
