Cinnamon buns |

Hello lovelies,
Today I'm sharing this delicious recipe for cinnamon buns. I love the cinnabons, which are just incredible, I know its more an American brand but we have a store in my local shopping centre and well...Its safe to say that have become a firm favorite in our house. As much as I love them they are a little pricey so I decided to try and make my own. If you want to see how I made them then stick around, grab yourself a drink and get snuggled in a blanket for I am about to show you the best recipe to recreate the cinnamon.



Ingredients |
For the dough |
250ml warm milk.
2 Eggs.
75g butter, melted.
600g bread flour.
100g caster sugar.
1tsp salt.
2 1/2tsp quick yeast.

For the filling |
112g caster sugar.
113g dark brown sugar.
2 1/2tbsp cinnamon.


Step 1 |
Warm some milk and put your yeast in it to activate. Sift all the other dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and make sure they are all combined.




Step 2 |

Melt the butter and then when it’s cooled add the eggs and mix well. Add this egg/butter mix to your dry ingredients and then mix together. At this point make a little well in the middle and add the yeast milk. After keep mixing it until it becomes to thought to mix with the spoon. Then you can start forming the dough with your hands. Obviously if you have a mixer then it would be easier to use that.

Step 3 |

Put your dough into a bowl and place some cling film over the top, leave it in a warm dry place and let it prove for about an hour or until its doubled in size.


Step 4 |

While your dough proves you can make a start on the guar that fills the dough. Add your sugar and cinnamon to a bowl and make sure it’s really all combined, after all you want cinnamon going all the way through the buns.  Put this to one side and then measure out your butter.


Step 5 |

Grab your dough when it’s done and roll it out to a 40x50cm rectangle and then spread the butter evenly over the top.



Step 6 |
Grab your cinnamon sugar and sprinkle it all over your dough. Make sure it’s on the dough evenly and that most of the dough is covered. Place them in tins and then leave them to double in size again. At this point you can pre heat your oven to 180c. I got impatient with mine and didn't let them rise because they did that in the oven. Obviously if your not a greedy pig like me, let them prove again but if your hungry then pop them in the oven. I found that they took about 35 minutes on 180c fan. Depending on your oven they may be done s little sooner or later. Keep checking them and when they are golden brown and feel a little hard on the top, take them out and pop on a baking tray. Be careful as the sugar was super hot and I don't want anyone hurting themselves.







This is what it looked like at the end. The lighting is awful but I can't help that. I drizzled salted caramel sauce and sprinkled with crushed pecans on top to make the caramel pecan cinnamon that my mum loves.


If you make this then please send me pictures of how yours turned out, id love to see if you liked them as well and what your put on top to decorate.


Lots of love,
Chloe xxx
