I love cinnamon and it happens to be a Christmas spice.

I love it in teas, cakes, sweets, fragrant oils but my favourite is cinnamon and apple spiced teas….oh you didn’t hear? I’m a confirmed sweet tooth ๐Ÿ™‚ but I assure you I take everything in moderation!

Anyway, I decided to add cinnamon into the buns recipe, I love it and I’m sure you will love it too!

Still to come before Christmas are 2 awesome chicken recipes! Certainly different from what we’ll normally do with chicken this season, so join me on monday ๐Ÿ™‚ . Promises to be worth your time.

Now on to our cinnamon buns.

Ingredients: (30-40 buns)

4 cups plain flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon powder

1/2 cup butter (melted)

1 cup hand hot milk ( I used Hollandia, ย warmed it in a pot, didn’t let it boil)

7g pack/2 teaspoons instant yeast ( Shoprite )

1 egg

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

Vegetable oil for deep frying

Method:

Sift the flour, cinnamon salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Stir in yeast.

Make a well in the centre of the flour mix and fold in the milk, butter and egg.

Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic. ย About 5 minutes.

Place in a bowl, cover with cling film and keep it in the warmest part of the house.

*I put mine in the oven and place a hot water bottle beside it, you can substitute by placing a bowl of hot water on the bottom rack of the oven, then place the dough on the middle rack.

The dough should double in size after 2 hours, knead lightly again then roll into small balls and deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.

Alternatively, ย skip adding sugar to the dough, then drizzle honey/maple syrup/golden syrup over the buns after frying…..now sit back and really enjoy sticky cinnamon buns! ๐Ÿ˜€
