Bread Machine Cinnamon Buns With Walnuts & Raisins

Recipe by Katzen
READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
YIELD: 12 Buns




  • Measure first 8 ingredients into bread machine (refer to your bread machine instructions for the proper order). Select the dough cycle.
  • Meanwhile, prepare syrup: Boil together butter, water and brown sugar for 1 minute.
  • Immediately, pour syrup into a 9 X 13 pan; tilt pan to cover bottom evenly.
  • Arrange walnuts, flat side up on syrup; scatter raisins on top.
  • When bread machine cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to a lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle.
  • Roll dough into a 12 X 18 inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter.
  • Sprinkle evenly with the mixture of brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Sprinkle chopped walnuts and golden raisins on top. Starting at large side, roll up jelly-roll fashion. Pinch edge to seal. Cut roll into 12 equal pieces. To avoid too much filling from escaping, I first cut the roll in half, then each half in half, and then each quarter in thirds. Place rolls flat over syrup.
  • Cover and let rise 30 minutes or until double in volume.
  • Remove cover and bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Loosen edges and carefully invert onto serving tray.
  • To make icing: Mix icing sugar and cinnamon together; add maple syrup and 1 tbsp milk, mix. If needed, add more milk. Icing should be stiff – but not too stiff – and not too runny either. I like to leave the icing on the side to allow folks to decide to use it or not.
  • Enjoy!
