Description

Yeasty homemade cinnamon rolls studded with chocolate chips, filled with sticky espresso syrup and topped with an espresso maple glaze. Amazing. Step-by-step photos in the original blog post, for your convenience.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DOUGH:
  • 2 teaspoons Yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 cup Warm Milk
  • 1 whole Egg, Beaten
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • FOR THE ESPRESSO SYRUP:
  • ⅓ cups Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Brewed Espresso
  • ¼ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • ½ cups Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 1-½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, Melted
  • 3 teaspoons Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons Brewed Espresso

Preparation

Into the bowl of a stand-mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, add the yeast, sugar and milk. Mix together then set it aside and allow it to stand 5 minutes until foamy.

Then add the egg and butter and mix until combined. Incorporate the flour and salt until a soft dough forms and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. If too sticky, add more flour by the tablespoon until it comes together. Turn the mixer on medium-high and knead dough 5 minutes. Cover the bowl and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

When the dough is done rising, put a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, espresso, and cinnamon. Stir until the sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes a glossy syrup 2-4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and roll into a large rectangle. Using your fingers, spread the top of the dough with the soft butter (for the filling). Sprinkle chocolate chips over the butter. Drizzle the espresso syrup over the top. Roll up the rectangle of dough into a log, starting from the long ends. Then trim off the ends with a sharp knife and slice into 2-inch-wide rolls. Place rolls into a round 9-inch baking dish or pie plate (cut side up), allowing room for them to rise. Cover the pan loosely with foil and allow them to rise another 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake the rolls with the foil for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes, or until golden brown on top and cooked through.

In the last 10 minutes of baking, whisk together the glaze. In a medium sized bowl combine powdered sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, butter and maple syrup. Gradually incorporate espresso until a smooth, runny glaze forms (adding more if needed). When rolls are done, pour the glaze over top while hot. Best eaten fresh out of the oven.
