Cinnamon Buns Recipe

Written By: Sylvia Eayrs

Anyone else feel like this year is moving extremely quickly? I think we all just need to take a minute and sloooow down. Maybe I feel this way because I’m a senior now and the future looks pretty daunting, or maybe I’m just having too much fun. Either way, time slows for no one and winter is fast approaching. Everyone keeps talking about the holiday season and I’m sitting here still pondering my Halloween costume. If you feel the same way I do, here’s a recipe to help you get into the festive mood.

Cinnamon Buns

Ingredients: Buns

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk, scalded
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ½ ice cold water
  • 2 tbsp. instant yeast (not dry-active!)
  • 5 ½ cups unbleached flour

Ingredients: Filling

  • ¼ melted butter
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon

Frosting (optional)

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • ¼ cup icing sugar


Heat milk, salt and butter and stir to melt. Add water to cool slightly and set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar. Add very warmliquids to egg mixture and stir well. Add 2 cups flour mixed with yeast to the liquids and continue adding one cup at a time, mixing with a wooden spoon. Once all the flour is added in, knead the dough until smooth and elastic-like. Cover with a clean town and some plastic wrap and list rise for 60-90 minutes. When double in size, divide in half and shape into rectangular shape on a floured surface. Roll each piece of dough to about 12×8 inches and spread sugar/cinnamon mixture over top. Roll up dough jelly-roll style and cut into thick slices. Place on baking tray lined with parchment paper and let rise for 60 minutes. Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. Mix icing sugar and melted butter together and spread over cooled buns for frosting.
