A few weeks ago the ‘Cinnamon buns day’ was celebrated…well, actually it takes place in Sweden, but if we talk about a sweet treat, I´m in for the celebration for sure! 🙂 I think better late than never, so today I present you my cinnamon buns recipe here. It´s not a complicated one and besides waiting for the dough to rise, the rest does not take long.
Here we go!
For the dough:
25 gr of butter cut in pieces
225 gr of flour
1 beaten egg
1/2 teaspoon of salt
7 gr of dry yeast
125 ml of warm milk
For the filling:
55 gr of soft butter
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
50 gr of brown sugar
In a bowl, sift the flour with the salt and add the dry yeast, then add the butter and with your hands start mixing until everything is well combined. Then add the beaten egg and the warm milk. Knead adding more flour if necessary, make a ball with the dough, spread a bit of olive oil on top and cover with a cloth. Let the dough rise for 40 minutes in a warm place.
To make the filling, just mix the butter, the brown sugar and the cinnamon well until everything is fully integrated and you get something creamy.
If you like, you can add to the filling some raisins, cadamom or ginger to give a spicy touch.
When the dough has risen, strech it making it in a rectangular way and start forming the rolls: cut two long strips of dough leaving the top part uncut; twist the strips and then make a braid with the two of them. Now twist together forming a knot. Put it in the oven tray and put it in the preheated oven at 190º C for 20/30 minutes or until they get a gold brown color.
Done! you can sprinkle with pearl sugar or powder sugar on top, Enjoy! they are really delicious 🙂
