I made Cinnamon And Sour Cherry Buns for Fresh From The Oven.
Today’s inspirational recipe from Lavender and Lime ♥ Cinnamon And Sour Cherry Buns ♥ #LavenderAndLime Click To Tweet
I had a real blonde moment when I joined Fresh From The Oven and so did not take part in the September challenge. After clearing up what I needed to do, I went to take a look at the October challenge, and it was for cinnamon buns. Even though I had already posted a recipe for them, this was not going to stop me from taking part. I decided to use the recipe from Things We Make that we were given with the challenge. If I were to make them again, I would add some cinnamon to the dough and I would use my cinnamon ‘sludge’ from my recipe for the middle. These kept amazingly well and we enjoyed the treat all weekend long. I also did not do the icing but instead made a glaze with jam – and it really worked well. I used sour cherries (notice the dark bits) instead of sultana’s as I do not like sultanas but I should remember to have put them on the edge of the dough and not the middle so that when I rolled them up, they would not have been at the edge.
Cinnamon And Sour Cherry Buns
- 125 mls luke warm milk
- 14 g instant yeast
- 7.5 mls fructose
- 25 g melted butter
- 1 egg yolk
- 200 g bread flour
- 100 g flour
- 1.25 mls salt
for the filling:
- 50 g softened butter
- 25 g fructose
- 2.5 mls ground cinnamon
- 40 g sour cherries
for the glaze:
- 15 mls fruit jam
- in a jug, mix the milk, yeast and fructose and leave to stand for 10 minutes
- add the melted butter and egg yolk to the milk mixture
- place the flour and salt in a large bowl and add the milk and egg mixture
- using a dough hook, knead until the mixture comes together
- at this stage I had to 20mls milk to make a dough
- you can also knead by hand for 10 minutes
- put the dough back into the large bowl and cover with a plate
- leave in a warm place for 2 hours to double in size
- knock down and roll the dough out until it’s the size of a baking tray
- slather with the butter and then sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar
- add the sour cherries to the bottom of the dough
- and starting with that edge, roll up until it resembles a swiss roll
- cut into 2.5cm slices and place in a buttered cake tin (the deepest one you have)
- tuck in any sour cherries so that they don’t burn
- leave to rise for another 30 minutes
- preheat the oven to 200° Celsius
- bake for 10 minutes and then cover loosely with foil
- bake for a further 10 minutes
- melt the jam on the stove in a small saucepan
- remove the buns from the tin as soon as you take them out the oven
- brush the jam glaze over the top straight away

Just gorgeous, Tandy. The perfect pick-me-up for our Autumn.
I’m trying really hard not to bake too much lately, I seem to have packed on a couple of extra unwanted kilos. 🙁
Love the idea of the glaze for a change too.
Have a great day.
I too have grown a bit around the hips!
What crap! I saw you yesterday and there is not more of you!!

I have NEVER made homemade cinnamon buns, these look wonderful….
do give them a try! thanks for the comment 🙂
I’ve never seen or thought to use jam in my cinnamon rolls! What a great idea and they look so pretty oozing with the jam! I’m sure your kitchen was filled with an amazing aroma!
I actually used dry cherries, but the aroma was great, and jam would work wonderfully as well 🙂
These are lovely. My children love it when I make cinnamon rolls but I have never put jam with them.
they are so easy to make, that I should do them more often 🙂
Fruity buns – what a great idea. I must look out for some sour cherries here.
I first came across them in London and now our Marks and Sparks here brings them in 🙂
Ooh lovely – could use some of my remaining cherry jam!
that is a great idea! I might have to try that 🙂
I love Things We Make! These look fantastic and I love the use of cherries.
I am meeting so many wonderful new people! thanks for the comment 🙂
Hmmm, my one son hates cinnamon but loves cherry. I might have to try this.
please let me know if you do! Thanks for the visit 🙂
Tandy, what an unusual twist on the usual cinnamon bun! I’ve never cooked with sour cherries before, but I’ve got some frozen ones in the freezer…
mine were dried ones – I don’t think you need to defrost them first 🙂
Oh I just love sour cherries, you clever thing!
thanks Cindy 🙂
Thanks for making the buns Tandy! I love that you made them with a twist. Good and fruity!
thanks for a great challenge!
Cherries and Cinnamon. I’m in love!
I love the sour cherries and can eat them by the handful 🙂
Tandy, the cinnamon buns look great. I like how you are using sour cherries in the buns, an interesting twist on cinnamon buns!
I find they have a much nicer taste (to me) than raisins when cooked 🙂
My fam loves cinnamon buns – I will definitely try your recipe – thanks!
try the first recipe Pink, they are awesome 🙂
How many rolls does this recipe produce ?
HI Michael. I would say 10 rolls given the way I sliced them 🙂
Thanks Tandy !
it is my pleasure 🙂
