Cinnamon Buns

Recipe by RavJJ
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Scald milk and stir in 6 tbsp butter, 6 tbsp sugar and salt.
  • Cool to lukewarm.
  • Dissolve 1 tsp sugar in warm water.
  • Sprinkle yeast over water mix.
  • Let stand in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  • Stir once this is done.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine lukewarm milk mix and eggs.
  • Stir in yeast mix.
  • Add four to five cups of flour and mix well.
  • With wooden spoon add remaining flour.
  • Place dough in a well greased bowl.
  • Roll dough over to grease top.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and allow to double in size for one hour.
  • Punch down and turn out onto floured surface.
  • Divide into two, roll each section into rectangles.
  • Sprinkle on filling (filling: 1 cup melted butter, 1 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tbsp cinnamon- divided between two rectangles).
  • Roll up and slice (a good way to slice pieces is to use a piece of string, place it on the underside of the roll and cross over opposite ends at top, cutting the piece).
  • Grease cookie tray with melted butter.
  • Place slices in tray, leaving enough space to allow them to expand, but not enough that the filling melts out.
  • Place greased waxed paper over slices and allow to double in size again for one hour.
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 to 45 minutes.
  • Remove immediately from tray.
  • If desired, buns can be iced.
