Cinnamon Buns

I am not sure what is the best part of these cinnamon buns, the soft sweet dough, the delicious warm cinnamon sugar in the centre or the whipped vanilla cream cheese frosting on the top, what I do know is that combined they are perfection!
Servings 9 buns
Cook Time 2 hrs 30 mins
Total Time 2 hrs 30 mins

Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 egg yolk room temperature
  • ¾ cup warm whole milk at 110 degrees
  • tsp rapid rise yeast
  • ¼ cup white sugar

For the filling:

  • cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup softened butter
  • tbsp cinnamon

For the frosting:

Instructions

  • Place the warm milk into the bowl of an electric stand mixer and sprinkle the yeast on top. Add the egg and egg yolk, melted butter and sugar and mix until combined.
  • Add in the flour and salt and stir. Once combined using the dough hook, knead on medium speed for around 8 minutes until you have a sticky but formed ball of dough that comes away from the sides of the bowl. If it is too sticky add a little more flour a tablespoon at a time.
