Triple Coffee Sweet Rolls

Background and History

Triple Coffee Sweet Rolls elevate the classic sweet roll by infusing it with the rich and robust flavors of coffee in three delightful forms: brewed coffee, coffee extract, and coffee glaze. Born from a love for the comforting aroma and taste of coffee, this indulgent treat is a perfect marriage of breakfast and dessert.

Ingredients

For the Dough:

  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

For the Filling:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons finely ground coffee

For the Coffee Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons brewed coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon coffee extract (optional)

Instructions

Activate Yeast

In a bowl, combine warm milk, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.

Prepare Dough

In a large mixing bowl, combine the activated yeast mixture with melted butter, salt, and flour. Knead until a soft dough forms. Let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.

Roll Out Dough

On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle.

Make Filling

In a bowl, mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and finely ground coffee. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the rolled-out dough.

Roll and Slice

Roll the dough into a log and slice into rolls. Place the rolls in a greased baking dish.

Second Rise

Allow the rolls to rise for an additional 30-45 minutes.

Bake

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Prepare Glaze

In a bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, brewed coffee, and coffee extract (if using). Adjust the consistency to your liking.

Glaze and Serve

Drizzle the coffee glaze over the warm rolls. Serve and enjoy!
