makes 1 dozen

1/2 cup warm water
1 {1/4-oz} package active dry yeast
1/2 cup butter, divided
2/3 cup whole buttermilk, at room temperature
1 egg, at room temperature
1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, divided
3 1/2 to 3 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp table salt
2 1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
Cream Cheese Frosting

Stir together the water & the yeast in a measuring cup. Let stand for 5 minutes or until foamy. Meanwhile, melt 3 tablespoons butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Set aside the remaining butter & soften at room temperature to spreading consistency. Place the buttermilk, the egg & the melted butter in the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer. Crumble 1/4 cup of the brown sugar over the surface. Stir the mixture with a rubber spatula until blended. Whisk together 3 1/2 cups of the flour & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the buttermilk mixture & blend on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the mixer & scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula. Add the yeast mixture & blend on Low speed 1 minute. Once the dough comes together, blend on Medium speed 5 minutes. Stop the mixer. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour over the dough. Remove with a bowl scrapper onto a cutting board. Form the dough into a ball & place in a large lightly greased bowl. Coat the surface with cooking spray & cover with plastic. Let rise in a warm spot free from drafts for 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in bulk.

Lightly grease 2 {8-inch} cake pans or cast iron skillets. Combine the remaining 1 cup brown sugar & the cinnamon. Punch the dough down & place onto a lightly floured work surface. Roll the dough to a 15 x 20-inch rectangle. Smear the softened butter over the dough surface using a pastry brush or your fingers. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the dough. Roll the dough up longways, jelly roll fashion. Cut into 12 even pieces using a serrated knife. Place 6 pieces of dough, cut side up, into each cake pan. Coat the surface with cooking spray & cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm spot free from drafts for 45 minutes or until doubled in size. Remove the plastic wrap. 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the filled pans on the center rack in the oven 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown on top. Prepare the Cream Cheese Frosting. Spread the frosting over the warm cinnamon rolls.

How To Proof Yeast

Dry active yeast can be purchased in 1/4-ounce packets or in small jars. I use both when preparing bread recipes, generally based on what my store has in stock at the time. If purchasing a jar of yeast, store it in the refrigerator after opening. Just be mindful of the expiration date so you don’t find yourself in a jam. You’ll find that 2 1/4 teaspoons is the equivalent to 1 envelope of active dry yeast. It’s a good idea to dissolve dry yeast before using. Here’s what you should know.

 Combine the warm water & the yeast in a measuring cup or a glass bowl. Allow it to stand until foamy & bubbly. If no bubbles are created during the proofing process, the yeast will not be able to do the job. Simply discard the batch & start again. At this point, you’ll only be five minutes into the procedure so don’t get discouraged. If the bubbles are present then the yeast has proved to you that it is indeed good & you can proceed.
