In a large bowl, add about half of the lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast and just mix it with a spoon and keep aside for 5 minutes.
Once you see bubbles on top of the mixture or if it's foamy, it means your yeast is active.
Sift the flour along with the vital wheat gluten (if using) and salt into this bowl. Add the milk little by little and keep kneading.
Once everything comes together, knead the dough using your hands on a clean surface. After kneading for about 8-10 minutes, the dough will be smooth and it will spring back almost when you poke it gently with a finger. You can also use a standing mixer to knead the dough if you do not want to knead it by hand.
Apply a little oil to a clean bowl and transfer this dough into it, add a little oil to the surface of the dough so that it doesn't form a skin.
Cover the bowl in plastic wrap and keep it in a warm, dust free surface of your house to rise for about 1-2 hours OR till it is doubled in size.
Once doubled in size, before rolling it out make sure your butter is in a spreadable consistency and prepare the filling. (recipe below)
Dust a little flour on your work surface and gently roll out your risen dough to a rectangle about 12 inches in length and about 8 inches in breadth.
Once you finish rolling out to the required size, gently spread the filling on the dough leaving about 1cm gap on the edges.
Gently start rolling your dough into a log. Take your time, do not rush. Once you finish rolling, pinch the outer end to seal it.
Cut into desired sized rolls. And place them on a baking pan leaving a little space between them, then cover it with a clean towel and once again leave it in a warm - dry place for about 30-45 mins or until almost doubled in size.
Preheat your oven to 175°C and when your cinnamon rolls are puffed up, with a pastry brush, brush the top of the rolls with a little milk. Bake your Cinnamon Rolls for about 30 minutes or until they are beautifully golden brown.
When your Cinnamon rolls are out of the oven, quickly blend the cream cheese and sugar using a whisk, and pour over the rolls while it is still warm. ENJOY!!!
In a small bowl add the soft cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon. Using a whisk, whisk until it blends together and becomes a smooth spreadable paste.
