Cinnamon Buns

See these, these are cinnamon buns. And they are yummy. Scrummy in fact.

See that icing, that is cream cheese icing. It is oh my god good. I was never all that enthused about cream cheese icing on cinnamon buns. It sounded kinda weird. It's not!! I made sure I did not miss out on even a drip.

The recipe for this came from my sister (who got it from someone who got if from someone who got it from a long forgotten source). She sent it to me ages ago and then hounded me until I baked them. I got a text message every Monday without fail. I'm glad she didn't give up because they are yummy. Did I mention that.

Cinnamon Buns

3 tsp Dry Yeast
1 cup Warm Milk
½ cup Sugar
½ cup Melted Butter
1 tsp Salt
2 Eggs
4 cups Plain Flour

1 cup Brown Sugar
2 ½ tbs Cinnamon
1/3 cup Butter

8 tbs Butter
1 ½ cups Icing Sugar
½ cup Cream Cheese
½ tsp Vanilla

Dough: Mix Yeast and 1 tbs sugar into warm milk. Leave in a warm place until frothy. Sift flour, salt, sugar and make a well in the centre. Add yeast mix, eggs and melted butter.

Mix to a dough and knead in a bread machine, using a dough hook or by hand until smooth and elastic.

Cover and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled.

Punch and roll out until approx ½ cm thick.

Filling: Beat butter until creamy, add brown sugar and cinnamon and mix until smooth. Spread over the dough.

Roll up lengthwise. Cut into slices. Place on a biscuit tray and cover and leave to rise for an hour.

Bake for 10-15 mins in 190C oven until brown around the edges.

Icing: While buns are baking, beat the icing ingredients together and spread over each roll while still hot.

Eat while still warm for maximum enjoyment.

Those are the good recipes, KJ - the ones that have been tested and tried several times, by dear people. :D

These look irresistible and I can completely understand why your sister insisted so much. :D

These remind me of Cinabuns in America. I think the cream cheese icing would be betther though. I cant wait to try it.
