- 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups (7 1/2 oz) all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup (4 1/8 oz) whole wheat flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
- 5 tbsp butter, melted and cooled, divided
- 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 oz light cream cheese
- 1 tbsp buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with aluminum foil and lightly grease.
Prepare the Filling:
Whisk together all filling ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
Prepare the dough:
In a large bowl, or the bowl of an electric mixer, combine all purpose flour, whole what flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk to combine. Add in buttermilk and 4 tablespoons of the melted butter and mix until dough starts to come together into a shaggy ball. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 1-2 minutes, until dough begins to look smooth and can be handled easily. This can also be done by kneading for about 1 minute with a paddle attachment or dough hook, and adding a tablespoon or two of flour to a mixer bowl.
Place dough on a floured surface and press or roll out into a 9×12-inch rectangle with the long side facing you. Take remaining tablespoon of melted butter and brush over dough rectangle. Sprinkle evenly with filling mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch border around each edge. Using a bench scraper to help you (or a large, flat spatula if you don’t have one), roll the dough up into a tight spiral. Pinch seam to seal.
Use a serrated knife to cut dough into 9 even pieces. Gently flatten each of the rolls before placing them in the prepared pan, to even them out if they were misshaped when sliced.
Cover pan with aluminum foil. Bake for 12 minutes covered, then uncover the rolls and bake for 14-18 minutes, until golden brown. Use the foil to life the rolls out of the baking pan and place them on a wire rack. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Prepare the glaze:
In a medium bowl, whisk all glaze ingredients together with a hand mixer until very smooth. Drizzle over slightly cooled rolls and serve.
Store leftovers in an airtight container after they have completely cooled.
