Cinnamon Buns

DSC_0024This recipe is from Bake with Anna Olson program on TV. This was my first try and it turned out very well. The original recipe is called Cinnamon sticky buns, but i figured out it will be too sweet as the buns are baked in Goo (sugar, butter and maple syrup mixture), so i just left the Goo part away. This is so easy to make and very tasty,too.


Dough : 1 1/4 cups luke warm milk

2 1/4 teaspoon instant dry yeast

1/4 cup sugar

1 large egg at room temperature

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon salt

Filling :   3 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2/3 cup light brown sugar ( I used regular white sugar)


For dough, mix all ingredients in bowl and mix with wooden spoon. Turn the dough out onto work surface and knead until smooth. it might get very sticky, but no  need to add more flour. Transfer the dough to an oil bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 1 hour or so until doubled in size.


I forgot to take picture with my camera but my little girl took some with my mobile phone. Thats how the dough look like after kneading.

Now for the filling, have the melted butter ready. Do not mix it with sugar and cinnamon.

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out. Try to roll into a rectangle ( but mine did not ). Brush the entire surface of the dough with butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.Image

Roll up the dough from the longer side and then cut the roll into desired pieces.Image

Place into baking pan ( I did not have baking sheet so i brush the pan with a little bit butter so the buns won’t get sticky ). Evenly spaced.Image

At this moment, they did not look good yet. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for an hour.Image

Look how beautiful the turned out.

Preheat the oven to 350 F.  I glazed the buns with 1 egg and sprinkle with sugar to make them look nice. and bake for 30 minutes (depends on how big you cut the roll, just keep checking, you will know when they cook, right?) until they are golden brown. Image

The buns are  best served the day they are baked.
