WATCH: How to Make Cinnamon Buns from Scratch

 

Enjoy the smell of cinnamon in the kitchen with this easy cinnamon buns recipe. You only need a few pantry ingredients and a bit of kneading to make it! 


To make the dough:
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ teaspoon yeast
2 ½ tablespoon butter
¼ cup white sugar
½ cup warm milk
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg, at room temperature

To make the filling:
2 ½ tablespoon butter, melted
½ cup brown sugar, packed
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon

To make the icing:
2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
½ cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ teaspoon vanilla

 

1

Sift 1 ¼ cups of all-purpose flour with the yeast into a bowl. Set aside.

 

2

In a saucepan over low heat, mix the butter, sugar, milk, and salt together just until the butter melts.

 

3

Add the butter mixture to the flour mixture and add the egg. Beat with a wooden spoon for 10 minutes. Alternatively, beat on a stand mixer on high speed for 5 minutes.

4

Pour in the rest of the flour and mix until it forms into a dough.

 

5

On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until smooth, around 10 minutes. Form dough into a ball, transfer the dough into a lightly greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or a moist towel and let the dough double in size, around 1 hour.

 

6

When it's done, punch down the dough and roll it out into a rectangle, around ¼-inch in thickness.

 

7

Generously brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top. Gently roll into a log and cut into 8 pieces. Transfer the rolls into a 7-inch baking pan and cover with plastic wrap or a moist towel. Set aside and let the dough rise for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 15 minutes.
