Hints: you must have fresh bread flour, fresh yeast, etc. Please do not store your yeast, wheat gluten or dough enhancer in your pantry. Store in the refrigerator what you will use within one month….the rest put in the freezer. Yes, white flour does expire… will grow mold spores…as do other products. When in doubt…throw it out……Buy what you use and use what you buy…..I only buy enough white bread flour I can use within 9-12 months.

Cinnamon Rolls-No Fail by Food Storage Moms

  • 4 Teaspoons SAF Instant Yeast
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 2 Cups Warm Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1-1/2 Teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 4 Teaspoons Dough Enhancer
  • 2 Eggs
  • 6-7 Cups White Bread Flour (Add half of the flour and then add more until the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl.)
  • Butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar
  1. Place all of the ingredients in order into your mixing bowl. Be careful with the eggs not to add the warm milk too quickly or you will have scrambled eggs. Add half of the flour and keep adding the rest of the flour until the bread dough pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap, and let rise the first time for about an hour. Punch the dough down and roll the dough into two-12 inch by 18-inch rectangles. Spread the butter, sprinkle a lot of a cinnamon and brown sugar. Roll up tightly and cut into 1/2 inch rolls. Cover with greased plastic and let rise one more time about an hour or until double the size. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes on a greased cookie sheet. Do not overbake. They should be a golden brown.
