  • Cooking and Prep: 2.5 h
  • Serves: 26
  • Contains:

Fresh, hot, and fluffy, with a mouthwatering coffee glaze or cream cheese topping … Need I say more? These cinnamon buns are simply irresistible. (For a healthier version, use oil instead of the margarine.)

Ingredients (22)

Dough

Filling

Coffee Glaze

Cream Cheese Frosting

Start Cooking

For the Buns

  1. Combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in mixer bowl.

  2. Heat milk, water , and margarine in a saucepan over medium flame or in microwave until warm. Add to flour mixture.

  3. Add eggs and remaining flour and knead until smooth. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

  4. Combine all filling ingredients in a bowl.

  5. Punch down the dough and divide into three parts.

  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each piece into a 9- x 13-inch (23- x 33-cm) rectangle. Spread filling on top.

  7. Starting with the 13-inch side, roll up tightly. Cut into 9 slices. Place in an 8-inch (20-cm) square pan. Cover buns and let rise another half hour.

  8. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

  9. Bake buns 20–25 minutes until golden brown.

Note:

This dough is quite sticky. It will become less sticky as it rises. If necessary, you can add more flour, but the less flour you add, the fluffier the cinnamon buns will be.

For the Glaze/Frosting

  1. While the buns are baking, prepare the glaze or the frosting.

  2. Mix all ingredients for glaze in a medium bowl. Drizzle over warm buns.

  3. Alternatively, place all frosting ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat until well combined.

  4. Spread over warm buns before serving.

    Substitute soy milk

    I would like to make it with the cream cheese frosting. Just wondering if i can use regular milk instead of the soy milk...

    Double the recipe?

    Thinking of maybe making these, but was just curious whether I could double the recipe instead of making 2 batches to save some time... Any thoughts whether that could work? Thanks

    Delicious but a bit too much burnt sugar on the bottom

    These were really good! However, two question to make them even better: I would have liked these fluffier. I did not line the pan with flour, I just used a PAM sprayed piece of parchment paper as my work surface (and then used it to line my pan). Would hand kneading make a big difference? While the buns rose, a lot of the filling dripped out and then burned in the oven. A little of this was good and sticky, but I would like to reduce it. Would sticking them straight in the oven, or only after a few minutes, keep them from rising properly? Is there any other way to prevent so much dripping?

    I would put a piece of foil on the bottom of the oven.

    Burned in the bottom of the pan, sorry not so clear. Pan was lined. Just a lot of burnt sugar under buns

    Great recipe!

    This is a great cinnamon bun recipe. Simple, easy and delicious. For an "israeli" version- I use shamenet (9% or higher) instead of American cream cheese. You may need to adjust the confectioner's sugar depending on how thick you like it. I always like to dust it with cinnamon-looks great tastes great.
