560gall purpose flour, maybe 10 gram extra if the dough is too wet.
1vanilla bean, the seeds, or 1 tsp of vanilla paste
Heat the milk up to approx. 30 degrees. Add the 2 tablespoons of sugar and the dry yeast. Whisk it thoroughly and place it in a warm spot until it bubbles up. It usually takes 10 - 15 minutes. Then the yeast will be activated
I assume you knead the dough on the machine. Add flour, sugar, the mixture of milk and yeast from step one, salt, melted butter, 2 eggs and vanilla seeds in the bowl. Then knead the dough at medium speed until it releases the sides of the bowl. It is in this step that you can add extra flour if you think the dough looks too wet.I usually knead the dough for about 10 - 15 minutes before it is ready.
When the dough starts to release from the sides of the bowl, pick it up and transfer to a second bowl lubricated with a little oil. Position it in a warm place and let it raise to double size. It usually takes an hour.
As the dough raises, prepare the filling for the cinnamon snails. Mix brown sugar, soft butter and cinnamon in a bowl. Mix it thoroughly and set it aside.
When the dough is raised, transfer it to a table sprinkled with flour. The dough may seem a bit sticky, so it is important with the flour. Sprinkle flour on the dough and roll it out to a square of approx. 50 x 50 cm with a rolling pin. Then spread the filling gently into an even layer on the dough.
Gently roll the dough from one edge to the opposite into a cylinder shape.
Find a roasting pan approx. 22 x 33 x 5 cm and cover it with baking paper. Now cut the cylinder into 15 equal sized snails and place them in the roasting pan. It doesn't matter they are a bit close. We want them to raise upwards during baking. It is a good idea to use a piece of sewing thread to cut the pieces. This avoids pressing the dough flat. You make a loop around the dough and tighten.
Now the cinnamon rolls have to raise again. Place them in a warm space and cover them with a cloth. Let them rise to double size. It should take 30 - 40 minutes depending on the temperature. While the buns are raising, the oven is preheated to 190 degrees.
Place the roasting pan in the middle of the preheated oven and bake the cinnamon rolls for 20 - 25 minutes until slightly golden.
Allow the snails to cool and mix the powdered sugar, cocoa and boiling water to make the icing. Decorate the snails with sugar icing and enjoy them with someone you love.
