Fluffy cinnamon buns with or without frosting. These are very simple buns that, in principle, can be made from yeast dough. Today’s proposal is a soft and delicately buttery,  cinnamon buns.

Cinnamon buns are delicious, easy to prepare, they are very popular and they disappear very quickly.

How to make it

  1. First of all add butter to the hot milk – stir it until it melts, wait till milk is cooler (more or less at body temperature). It happens quite quickly because the butter, while melting, also cools the milk.
  2. Next pour sugar into lukewarm milk and crumble the fresh yeast or add sachet of dry yeast. Then mix thoroughly and set aside. In meantime measure out the remaining ingredients.
  3. Add flour and salt to a bowl, then add an egg and milk with sugar, butter and yeast.
  4. After that, knead it into a soft, smooth, elastic dough – you can use a spoon to combine the ingredients or with a mixer for yeast dough. I usually use a mixer, it’s easier.
  5. The dough is supposed to be soft, so if you feel that it is too “hard” add more milk, if it is too “wet” sprinkle some flour.
  6. Put the kneaded dough into a bowl, cover it and leave it to rise, until it doubles in volume around 30-60 minutes depending how is the weather outside :).
  7. In the meantime line the baking paper over the baking tray.
  8. Now prepare a cinnamon filling. Add sugar and cinnamon to the bowl and mix thoroughly, melt the butter and cool it down.
  9. Next roll the dough to a thickness of half cm, giving the dough a rectangular shape. Spread it with butter, sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar filling and roll the dough.
  10. When the dough is ready slice it into as many pieces as you want the buns – it should be enough for 9 bigger to 12 smaller buns.
  11. Now put each one in a prepared baking tray, keep the space between them, because they will rise.
  12. Finally put the baking tray in a cold oven, heat up to 180°C (356°F) – start counting the baking time from the moment the oven reaches this temperature and then bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes. At the end you can cover it with a foil so that it does not burn too much – I usually cover it for the last 5 minutes.
  13. Once baked, I take it out from the oven, leave on the metal grid with the baking paper and leave it to cool down.

And it’s ready 🙂 You can serve them with or without icing.

How to make yogurt frosting

  • 200 grams icing sugar (1 cups + ¼ cup + 2 tbsp)
  • 1 tablespoons of plain yogurt
  1. Put sugar in a bowl, add yoghurt, but gradually. The amount of yogurt depends on its consistency (thick / liquid). I mix thoroughly and possibly add more yogurt to get the desired consistency.
  2. Fluffy cinnamon buns are ready to eat.
