Cinnamon Bun/Cinnamon Roll

Today I am sharing a flavorful cinnamon bun for Bake-A-Thon.I have already shared cinnamon bear claw.A friend and reader of my blog requested for for the bun/roll,so decided to bake and share.Also my kiddo was craving for cinnamon flavor and suggested to make cinnamon bun.
Coming to the recipe,its almost similar to the cinnamon bear claw,except the shaping.Here I used both all purpose flour and bread flour.The buns were so soft with the flavor of cinnamon and the caramelized sugar.My 3 years lil one enjoy 2 buns as soon as I finished the glaze.Off to the recipe........................

  • Knead the dough on a floured surface for 10 minutes till it becomes smooth and elastic.Shape the dough and keep it in a warm place for 11/2 hours or the volume of the dough doubled.
  • Meanwhile mix the sugars and cinnamon powder in a bowl and line the baking tray with parchment paper.Keep it aside.
  • After the dough has risen well,pinch it down and roll it.Smooth the dough and roll it to a 12 x 15 inch sheet.

  • Brush it with the butter and sprinkle  the sugar-cinnamon mixture.Now carefully roll from the one end and roll it to a log and pinch the ends and seal it.Slice the roll into 11/2 inch thickness.Arrange it on a lined baking tray and cover with a foil,keep it in a warm place for second rise for 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile mix the butter,icing sugar,vanilla and milk in a bowl.After the second raise brush it with the rest of the butter and pre heat the oven at 350 F.Bake the rolls for 30-40 minutes or until golden.Remove it and cool it on a cooling rack.After its completely cool down,mix the powdered sugar,vanilla and milk in a bowl.Drizzle it on the top the rolls using a spoon or a piping bag.

  •  Serve it warm.

    • The dough should be slightly stick,don't add too much of flour while kneading.
    • The rolls taste better when it is served warm,just microwave it for 5 seconds and serve. .
    • The sweetness was just perfect if you want it a bit sweeter version then add another tbs of sugar.
    • The amount of cinnamon powder can be increased according to personal preference.I reduced the amount from the original recipe.
    • The buns can be made with all purpose flour only.
    • I used my 9 X 9 square pan and it was just perfect to bake the 12 rolls.
