Chocolate Cinnamon, Rolls with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting


100g butter

500 ml milk

100g white sugar

7 g active dry yeast

640 g all-purpose flour

60 g dark cocoa powder

0,5 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp ground coffee (optional)

150 g Brown sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

Some butter curls

For cream cheese chocolate, glaze

120 g cream cheese

4 tbsp milk

120 g powdered sugar (icing sugar )

1 tbsp dark cocoa powder


Warm the milk together with butter until it is completely melted then set aside to cool down. Add vanilla extract, sugar and active dry yeast. Stir and set aside for 5 minutes until the yeast becomes slightly frothy.

Add flour, cocoa powder, and ground coffee (optional) but intensifies the taste of chocolate). Stir with a spoon until no traces of flour are visible and set aside for 5 minutes so that liquids are absorbed by the flour.

Knead the dough by hand or in a mixer with a dough hook for 10 minutes or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic. Transfer it into a bowl, cover with a slightly damp cloth and let rise in a warm place for 2 hours or until it doubles the volume. The rising times are approximate, it can take more or less time depending on the temperature of the environment, the freshness of the yeast, the strength of the flour and other factors not related to the recipe. The small amount of yeast let your cake be moist and fresh for more time.

Deflate the dough and spread it on a floured surface to create a rectangle. Sprinkle the rectangle with brown sugar mixed with cinnamon and add some butter curls. Roll the rectangle to create a roll of dough. Using the sharp knife, divide it into 15 equal parts. Place cinnamon, roll slices over a rectangular baking pan ( leave some space between them ). Cover the pan with a cotton cloth and let rise for another 45 minutes -1 hour.

Bake your cinnamon rolls in preheated oven at 180°C for 25-30 minutes. Then take the pan from the oven aside to let it cool down.

Prepare the glaze by whisking cream cheese with milk, sifted icing sugar and cocoa powder. Pass the glaze through a fine sieve in case of lumps. Spread still warm chocolate rolls with prepared glaze and serve.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
