Cinnamon buns (Fri 15.01).

Cinnamon buns.


  • 500 g white bread flour
  • 25 g g caster sugar
  • 25 g light brown sugar or cane sugar
  • half teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 20 g yeast
  • 350g milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 50 g unsalted butter diced
  • 1 egg white only

1. Combine flour, both sugars, cinnamon and the salt in a bowl. Crumble the yeast in the flour and add most of the milk.

Start mixing both to a firm non sticky dough, add the remaining milk if necessary. Turn out the dough and knead for about 2 minutes until smooth.

Squeeze and knead the butter into to the dough. The dough is able to absorb all this and will become again a smooth somewhat softer dough.  Forgot to add the cinnamon with the flour so did this here.

Leave to rise for about 1 hour until doubled in size.

2. Turn out the dough and form into balls about 60g each. Put them on a greased tray well spaced apart.

Leave to rise for 1 hour.

3. Press your thumb into the middle of each bun and glaze them (twice) with the egg white.

Bake in a pre heated oven at 210 C for about 20 minutes or until brown.

Leave to cool on a wire rack.
