This recipe is for the lazy day! This is the laziest cinnamon roll but it's beautiful and such a show stopper! I love making this when I need to feed a lot of people. It slices so nicely! But if you are looking at this picture, thinking how in the world can I make this. HA! I got you, darlin!
Okay this recipe requires a video! It is incredibly hard to write this recipe and explain the technique. I want to write...ya know...do the spinny thingy this way, but I can't do that so a VIDEO! Pictures wouldn't even be very helpful! So I've attached a video and I suggest watching the video before attempting! It is so much easier than you think!
Fresh Milled Giant Cinnamon Coriander Bun
3 cups hard wheat berries milled into flour (4 1/2 cups of flour)
1 1/2 cups of warm water
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tbsp barley malt syrup
2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sunflower lecithin
1 tbsp instant yeast
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp corriander
1 cup coconut sugar
1/2 stick of softened butter for the dough and 1/2 stick melted for the bottom of the pan
Mill the wheat on a bread setting. Add warm water, coconut oil, maple syrup, barley malt syrup, and egg to your mixing bowl. Add the salt, sunflower lecithin, flour, and instant yeast. Mix/knead the dough 8-10 minutes or until the dough pulls away from the bowl and you have achieved a good window pane. Cover and let it rise 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
After the first rise, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Flour your work surface and dump the dough out. Roll the dough into a 9 x 13 rectangle.
Mix together the coconut sugar, cinnamon, and coriander.
Spread the butter onto the dough and sprinkle the filling all over the rectangle.
Roll the dough together like you do for cinnamon rolls.
Instead of slicing them into individual cinnamon rolls, cut the dough straight down the center. The dough will split and it will seem messy. Stay the course!
Twist the dough around itself to look like a giant cinnamon twist donut.
Turn the dough into a spiral.
Melt the other half of the butter stick and put it in the bottom of a large pie plate.
Place the dough into the pie plate and bake 28-32 minutes.
