I love cinnamon. Food with cinnamon in it, food with cinnamon on it. I’d eat it from the jar if it didn’t set your tongue on fire. I’ve seen numerous posts, blogs and photos on Facebook and Twitter lately showing delightful Cinnabuns. Why hadn’t I made these before? I’ve been feeling pretty bad all week with the lurgy but made a pact with myself that if I was feeling better by this weekend, then Cinnabuns would be on the menu.
I used a recipe from All Recipes UK called Clone of a Cinnabon. (the recipe is on the recipes page).
The dough can be made in a bread maker if you have one. I was going to make it in the bread maker but I noticed that there is a lot of flour in the recipe (600g) and my bread maker is only a mini one and I didn’t think that it would all fit, so I decided to make it by hand instead.
I used the dough hook on my mixer to mix all the ingredients and when mixed left it to prove for approx. 1 hour. When risen, I rolled out the dough to a rectangle (approx. 40x50cm). I spread the dough with butter and then covered it in the cinnamon and sugar mix.
The dough is then rolled and cut into 12 slices. The dough is left again for a further 30 minutes to rise slightly more. I put 4 slices at a time into a square baking tin and baked them for about 15 minutes.
When the cinnabuns were cooled, I iced them with glace icing. Oh my word! They are absolutely delightful. I could live on them if they weren’t so naughty!!
