Whole Wheat Sourdough Almond Cinnamon Rolls

By Travis Piper / January 9, 2018

Guys, this is a winner! Make it a day ahead of time, and give them the time they need to really come into it in the fridge. Cold proofing is a key step when dealing with sourdough. Don’t skimp on it. I went for 24 hours myself. More time = more complex flavors, textures.

  1. Mix everything together and allow to rise at room temp. Depending on your kitchen's temperature, this could be anywhere from 2-8 hours. The instant yeast helps with this a lot.
  2. When the dough has nearly doubled in bulk (approximately), punch it down and roll it out on a floured board. Make a rectangle of 16x20".
  3. Then spread out the filling, covering the entire shape. Roll it up like sushi (a flexible board really helps) until you have a 20" roll.
  4. Keep it seam side down and slice it carefully into 8 equal pieces. Lay these out onto a piece of parchment inside a baking dish. I use my 8" cast iron, and it's the perfect size, but you could use an 8x8" brownie pan, too.
  5. Bake 40-45 minutes at 350 F. Cover them with foil for the last 15 minutes to prevent burning.
  6. Hit them with the glaze after they've been out of the oven for about 10 minutes or so. Serve directly! They also keep well in the fridge for a day-after cold breakfast treat. I should know: I'm eating one as I type this... 🙂
