    About this recipe: I make these the night before and bake them in the morning. My family and friends can't stay out of them. They are very moist and decadently rich.

    Makes: 24 

    • 235 ml milk
    • 115 g butter
    • 235 ml water
    • 10 g active dry yeast
    • 200 g white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 eggs
    • 750 g all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 290 g dark brown sugar
    • 115 g butter, softened
    • 250 g confectioners' sugar
    • 85 g cream cheese, softened
    • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 45 ml milk

    1. Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in the butter; stir until melted. Add water and let cool until lukewarm.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the milk mixture, yeast, white sugar, salt, eggs and 2 cups flour; stir well to combine. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
    3. Divide dough into two pieces. Roll each piece into a 12x9 inch rectangle. In a bowl, stir together the cinnamon and brown sugar. Spread each piece with half of the butter, half of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough, using a little water to seal the seam.
    4. Cut each roll into 12 slices using a very sharp knife or dental floss. Place rolls onto two 9x13 inch greased baking pans. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
    6. To make frosting; combine confectioner's sugar, cream cheese, butter and vanilla. Add milk gradually until frosting reaches a spreading consistency. Spread over warm (but not hot) cinnamon rolls.
