The recipe for mocha cinnamon rolls comes from Qiaoer, a senior YouTube blogger. She belongs to the type of pastry chef who explains very clearly, but there are so many kitchen utensils that sometimes it is difficult to reproduce. I made this recipe and found it very operable. I made some adjustments and recommend it to everyone.
1️ Milk soup: 30g high-gluten flour ➕120g milk. Heat over low heat until thick, turn off the heat and let cool.
2️ Main dough: All milk soup ➕300g high-gluten flour ➕1 egg ➕1 egg yolk ➕40g sugar ➕5g salt ➕4g yeast powder ➕50g milk and beat into a dough; then add 45g room temperature Beat the softened butter to make a glove film🧤. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise at room temperature for an hour until it doubles in size.
3️ Make the filling: After softening 90 grams of butter, add 60 grams of brown sugar ➕10 grams of caster sugar ➕1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder ➕2 grams of decaffeinated coffee powder (you just bought the wrong Nespresso capsules and can use it😆) and beat until light and feathery shape. Chop 45 grams of dark chocolate into pieces and set aside.
4️ Sprinkle dry flour on the cutting board, roll the fermented dough into a 45*60cm rectangle, evenly spread the butter filling; then sprinkle with chocolate chips, evenly spread into four strips ~
5️ Roll up the dough along the long side, using a scraper to help you roll it up. After rolling, knead it evenly, then use dental floss to pinch off the parts without filling at both ends. Divide the remaining part into 12 small portions and place them in In a 10*9inch baking pan.
6️ After continuing to ferment for 1 hour, bake in the oven at 350F for 25 minutes and take it out~~
This mocha roll is super soft when eaten hot, with layers of chocolate and a full butter aroma! I mainly tasted chocolate🍫, but Wang, who is sensitive to cinnamon, said he could still taste the cinnamon flavor🤷, but yes, he still ate three in one go😅 Maybe it was to give me face~
I have reduced the sugar in the entire recipe. After baking, I feel that the butter filling can be reduced by another 10 grams. If it is any less, it will not be spreadable and it will not be fragrant enough. When it comes to holiday food, deliciousness is the most important thing😋☯
