Phase 1

To prepare the cinnamon rolls, start making the mixture by combining the flour, milk, egg yolks, eggs, yeast, sugar, honey, grated rind of an orange and knead with the help of a planetary mixer. Then also add the butter and salt until the dough is smooth. Form a loaf and let it rest for 15 minutes at room temperature. Then spread the dough on a plate, cover it with cling film and leave it in the refrigerator overnight.

Phase 2

The next day, take the dough and with the help of a rolling pin roll it out until it is 3-4 mm thick and form a rectangle. Proceed by preparing the soft butter with the cinnamon: in a bowl, first work the butter with a spoon, then add the cinnamon and mix well to mix everything.

Phase 3

Spat the cinnamon flavored butter over the entire rectangular surface of the dough and then sprinkle the brown sugar as well. Roll everything up and cut into slices 2/3 fingers thick, thus forming swivels.
