Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

Dry Ingredients Wet Ingredients
  • 6 Cups Fresh Milled Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Dry Instant Potato Flakes
  • 2 Tbsp. Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 2 Tbsp. SAF Instant Yeast
  • 2 Tbsp. Salt
  • 5 Cups Hot Tap Water
  • 2/3 Cup Canola Oil or Melted Butter
  • 1 Cup Sugar or Honey
  • 4 Eggs
Step 1: Using the WonderMill

Using your WonderMill grind 6-8 cups of wheat (we recommend hard white). This will yield 10-12 cups of flour.
Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients

Mix all dry ingredients together. Stir well.
Step 3: Add Wet Ingredients

Mix the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients for one minute in an electric mixer. Add the eggs after the dry ingredients and wet ingredients are mixed.
Step 4: Mix

Mix on low speed for 3 to 4 minutes. Add approximately 6 cups of white flour or enough to make a firm dough. The dough should be a little bit sticky to the touch.
Step 5: Knead

Knead on speed 2 for 6 minutes. The gluten will develop in the dough and the dough will lose the stickiness. The dough will be soft. If it is heavy just add a small amount of water (about 1/4 Cup) and mix 2 minutes more.
Step 6: Roll

Let the dough raise for 25 minutes or until doubled in size. Cut the dough in half and roll 1/2 of it in a long rectangle. Spread with melted butter and top with sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough into a long roll from back to front.
Step 7: Cut

Cut the roll with dental floss in 1" lengths and put 12 rolls on a jelly roll pan. Putting only 12 rolls on a pan gives the rolls room to spread out and raise so the middle does not spiral upward.
Step 8: Bake

Let raise until doubled in size. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until medium golden brown.
Step 9: Cool

Allow the rolls to cool upside down. This will keep the bottom from getting soggy.
Step 10: Frost

Place the rolls back inside the pan and spread frosting generously (see frosting recipe below).
Creamy Frosting
  • 1 (2 lb.) Bag of Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Cube of Butter (Softened NOT Melted)
  • 1 Can of Evaporated Milk
Pour 1/2 of the bag of powdered sugar and the softened butter into the mixing bowl. Mix on low speed, add the evaporated milk a small amount at a time, and the remainder of the powdered sugar alternately until the mixture becomes silky with nice peaks.
