Mama B’s Kitchen

A while back my friend, Katie, and I decided to get together and bake a batch of cinnamon rolls. We thought we’d double the recipe so we could each have a bunch but we didn’t count on the fact that it was a mennonite recipe and already a ton!! 3 hours later, we had about 75 rolls! They were so good I thought I’d post it plus the cute pics we decided to take to show you how!!

  • 2 sticks marg
  • 2 c. milk

Heat milk a little (not too hot) and add marg.

Add:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp salt

Beat

Add:

  • 2 c. cold water
  • 2 tbs yeast
  • 9-11 cups of flour

Make a dough. You want it a little sticky. Cover and let rise for 1 hour then punch it down.
Divide it into 2. Use oil on your hands and roll it into an oblong.
Put some melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon on it.
Roll it and then slice off rolls.

You can either freeze some of these (like we did) If you do, I would recommend putting them on a baking sheet and covering them until they’re frozen. Then transfer to a ziploc bag so they freeze individually.

Cook at 350* for 20 minutes.

Topping:
Melt together 1 stick marg and 1/4 c. brown sugar.
Add: 1/3 c. milk and cook for a little.
Add 4 c. powdered sugar at the end.

Hint – If you’re going to just bake a few at a time just do smaller quantities of the topping. I did that and found it wasn’t an exact science!

    Yes Clair, you double a mennonite recipe, and you get a whole lot of food! Since we are always cooking for the 47 men who came over to build the barn and all…HA. Oh, and do I get compensated for the recipe?? Maria

  2. how about you bring a few of those delicious cinnamon rolls over here and let me try them!?

    We can’t both live in the same town and not see each other more often!
