Cinnamon Rolls/Buns


Cinnamon Rolls/Buns

  • 3 tbsp butter. Plus 1/4 cup butter, softened, for filling. Add 1/4 tsp salt to flour if using unsalted butter.
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1.25 tsp traditional yeast. Or active yeast, which can be mixed with the flour
  • .5 tbsp ground cinnamon. Plus 2-3 tbsp cinnamon, for filling.
  • 1/4 tsp salt. Omit if using salted butter.

  1. Scald milk. About 5- 10 minutes on medium-high heat. Set aside.
  2. Add the sugar & stir, until it is mostly dissolved.

  7. You can mix & knead the dough in the bowl or turn in out onto a floured surface. Knead for 4-5 minutes. You want a smooth, soft dough. Or you can use a stand mixture, then knead by hand.
