Overnight Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Rolls

Some mornings all you need is something hot and fresh from the oven. But baking a bread or a pastry from scratch takes time and for getting it ready for breakfast seems a difficult task. Well not always, if you plan ahead and do the prep work a day before, all you need is to pop it in the oven for your breakfast. This is when my Overnight Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Rolls recipe was invented.

Overnight Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Rolls

We wanted some hot, fresh and crunchy pastry for our breakfast. That’s when I decided to make this Overnight Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Rolls. All I did was saved a small dough from the Indian Pav / Dinner Rolls batch I was making the previous day. Rolled it, filled it with desired stuffing and left it overnight in the fridge to rise. Next morning I just had to bake it for our breakfast. Isn’t that easy peasy?


Fillings one can use

One can use a filling of their choice in this. I have added apples, almonds and layered with a mix of butter and cinnamon. One can use chocolate or even a savoury filling. The possibilities are endless. I used the combination of apples and cinnamon as it goes well together.

Few Points to take care

The overall process is quite simple. But just need to be careful of some bits here. The filling needs to be chopped finely or else you will not be able to roll out the dough properly. It might tear as the dough would be a bit soft and stretchy. The rolls can be made on the same day too, with proper proofing or else you can let it rise in the refrigerator overnight. If your kitchen is cold you can even leave it over the counter.

The slow rise helps develop taste as well helps you when you need something ready to bake. This rolls also comes in handy when you have a party or guests as they can be made well ahead of time. 


Overnight Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Rolls process

As mentioned earlier, I used the dough from my pav batch I was making on the earlier day. Rolled it into a big rectangle. Layered it with Butter and cinnamon. Added some chopped apple and almonds. Rolled and cut into pinwheel shapes of around 1 inch in thickness. Then arrange it in a baking tray. I first let it rise for 30 minutes at room temperature and then let the remaining rise happen in the fridge overnight. 

Warm Overnight Rolls

The next morning I just removed it, preheated the oven and baked this cinnamon rolls. My kitchen was smelling oh so good with the cinnamon bake. Removed from the oven, let it cool for 5-10 minutes, and then drizzle some icing sugar paste. Hot , sweet and crunchy breakfast is sorted.
