About this recipe: The dough for these cinnamon buns is made in a bread machine before it is shaped into buns and baked in the oven. If you don’t have a bread machine, follow the notes at the bottom of this recipe. Serves 12.
For the dough
- 250ml (8 fl oz) warm milk (45 C)
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 75g (3 oz) butter, melted
- 600g (1 1/3 lb) bread flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 100g (4 oz) caster sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons quick yeastFor the filling
- 225g (8 oz) dark brown soft sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 75g (3 oz) butter, softened
- Place ingredients for dough in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.
- After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Roll dough into a 40x50cm (18×20 in) rectangle. Spread dough with 75g butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 slices. Place buns in a lightly greased 23x33cm (9×13 in) baking tin. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6.
- Bake buns in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
If you don’t have a bread machine, you can do the following instead: Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl. Mix in the sugar, butter, salt and eggs. Add flour and mix well. Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour. Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Follow the recipe from step 3 onwards.
