Crowd-Pleaser Cinnamon Rolls
- In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups flour and yeast. In small saucepan, combine milk, water, the 1/2 cup sugar, oil, and salt. Heat; stir over medium heat till just warm (120 degree F to 130 degree F).
- Add milk mixture and egg yolks to dry mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl often. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.

I give this 5 stars although it only marked 3...so sorry. I did tweak the recipe slightly by adding vanilla bean into the liquid, using half brown sugar and regular sugar in the Cinnamon mixture and increased rising times. I've made it 4 times now...once adding sliced firm bananas on top of the sugar mix then rolling....mmmmm good!

Do you sift the flour? Hardly ever do I find a recipe that tells you if the flour is sifted or not. Thanks!
