Recipe For Cinnamon Buns

It is not often that I try something and want to eat the whole lot of them! I made a batch of these very tasty treats and Dave and I had to ration ourselves to making them last two days. This recipe for cinnamon buns was given to me by my friend Bev and I can lay no claim to it’s goodness. You would do well to make double the batch and cook the second batch as soon as you take the last one out of the container you have hidden them in. I am going to save these for a weekend tea time treat, as if I make them for after dinner dessert during the week, my waist line and I will soon not be on the same page.

Cinnamon Buns
 
Ingredients
for the filling:
  • 125mls brown sugar
  • 60mls sugar
  • 15mls ground cinnamon
  • 0.625mls ground nutmeg
  • 1.25mls salt
  • 15g butter, melted
for the buns:
  • 280g cake flour
  • 2.5mls salt
  • 15mls baking powder
  • 65g butter, fridge temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 125mls buttermilk
  • 45mls water
  • flour for dusting
  • 60g melted butter
Method
  1. preheat the oven to 190° Celsius
  2. butter a 22cm cake pan really well, and line the base with baking paper
for the filling:
  1. combine the sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a small bowl
  2. add the melted butter and stir with a fork until it resembles wet sand
for the buns:
  1. sieve together the flour, salt and baking powder
  2. chop or grate the butter into the flour and gently rub with your fingertips to form a crumble
  3. beat the egg, buttermilk and water together with a fork
  4. use a knife to mix this into the flour
  5. lightly knead for 30 seconds
  6. roll the dough out on a well floured surface to a 35cm x 25cm rectangle
  7. brush the dough with 2 tablespoons melted butter
  8. sprinkle and level the cinnamon sugar mixture, leaving a 1cm border all around
  9. roll the dough lengthwise into a tight log
  10. wet the exposed end and seal
  11. keep the seam side down and cut the log into 8 even slices
  12. slightly flatten each slice and place seam side down into the pan
  13. place one in the middle and the others around the perimeter
  14. brush the remaining butter over the top of the buns
  15. bake for 25 minutes until browned
  16. turn out onto a cooling rack and flip over so that the cinnamon side is facing up
  17. place your cooking rack over some baking paper to catch any drips while cooling and when icing
My Notes
add ½ a cup of raisins or pecans etc. to the filling

  7. Oh fantastic! I am SO happy to have seen this recipe! I ADORE cinnamon buns (to an obsessive / unhealthy level) but they all seem to contain yeast – which scares me out of the kitchen. Can’t wait to try these out…I think tonight would be a good time 🙂
