Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 2 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2  1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1  pkg cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar


Step 1:
In a large bowl dissolve 2 1/2 tsp of yeast into 1 cup of warm (not hot) milk. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Step 2: Add 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of melted butter, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 cup sugar and stir until mixed. Slowly add in the flour and knead until completely mixed.

Step 3: Lay the dough on a floured surface and roll into a 15×20 inch rectangle. Spread the 1/3 cup of butter over the entire surface of the dough. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle evenly over the butter. Roll the dough lengthwise and using thread or a very sharp knife, cut into 12 pieces.

Step 4: Arrange in a greased baking pan. Let rise for 20-30 minutes until doubled in size. Pre-heat oven to 375˚F (190˚C). Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.

Step 5: While the cinnamon buns are baking, make the frosting by creaming together 1 pkg of cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract . Slowly add the 1 1/2 cups of icing sugar and mix until smooth.

ENJOY!

Cooking Hiatus – Officially over

16 Apr

Admittedly I’ve been very lazy lately. I haven’t posted a new recipe in ages! Shame on me. Tonight, this changes. I’m craving a Pavlova and it’s going to be epic. EPIC! Maybe I’ll even have a Pavlova party.. Which will end up just being me and the Pavlova. I like saying Pavlova. PAVLOVA.

Alright, enough shenanigans. For now.

TO THE STORE BATMAN!
