Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls

July 23, 2015

I won’t waste your time explaining how delicious and easy these are to make. And I won’t tell you that this is one more wonderful way to use the extra sourdough starter that we usually have to toss at a feedings.

I won’t bore you with little stories of how long I’ve been making cinnamon rolls (45 years) or that when I was a young mama I sold them to make money to Christmas shop for my babies. Nor about the mile long trek through the snow and ice I had to make to sell them.  (not)

What I will say is LOOK AT THIS PICTURE.

    Hi, these look really good, but although they’re called cinnamon rolls, how much cinnamon goes in them please?

      I see the problem, Yvette, I left the amounts off! oh my…thanks for pointing this out to me….
      I don’t have an exact measurement…I just sprinkle heavily after I roll out dough and sprinkle with everything else..then I sprinkle with cinnamon….after you make them once, you can adjust the amount. I’d start with 2 tablespoons and go from there….;)

    My dough was really goes. Used lots of flour to roll out but could hardly roll up and didn’t even cut them. What did I do wrong?

      If your dough was really gooey(?) I would suggest adding additional flour.

    Hi, I’m very excited to try this recipe. Always looking for ways to use the sourdough surplus. How much do you feed the cup of starter you set out with?

      I take out a cup of the starter and feed it as usual, then allow it to rise and use that. Enjoy!

        Do you use a cup of sourdough starter or feed the cup of starter and use that?

          I use the leftover sourdough that gets thrown out.
