    Prove your yeast by mixing it with the warm water and a pinch of sugar. If it gets bubbly and frothy after about 5 to 10 minutes, you have proven that the yeast is alive and you may proceed with the recipe.

    Throw in the Milk, sugar, butter, salt, eggs and flour straight into a bowl and mix using your stand mixer with the dough hook until it is elastic and no longer sticks to the side of the mixer bowl about 5 minutes.

    If you do not have a stand mixer use the dough blade of the food processor and pulse until you have a soft sticky mass. Then turn out onto a lightly floured table and knead it by hand 50 times.

    If you do not have either machine, you may knead the entire dough by hand, but this will take some time and effort to get to an elastic workable dough. Don’t give up though it’s not hard. A little arm workout will do you good. :p

    Next, transfer the dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a towel and set in a nice warm spot to double in size. This will take approximately 1-2 hours depending on the conditions in your kitchen.

    Once it has doubled, you will gently “punch down” the dough to release the gasses and proceed to roll the buns.

    Melt the butter in a small saucepot or in the microwave, keep aside.

    Combine all sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl, keep aside.

    Now you can proceed to roll the bun dough. Press the dough into the best square or rectangle you can by hand, and then roll with a rolling pin to approximately 16″ X 18″.

    Brush the entire surface with melted butter and then sprinkle generously with the entire mixture of cinnamon-sugar.

    Roll it up and then cut into 14-15 equal portions.

    Using a 12X18 sheet pan, grease with Pan Grease or spray with Spray Oil of your choice. Arrange the buns in the baking dish so they are about 1″ apart.

    Spritz the buns with water and once again cover with a towel and place the baking dish in a warm, draft free spot to double in size, about 1-2 hours depending on your kitchen conditions.

  14. Add Photo

    Once the buns have proofed completely, bake them in a preheated 180°C oven for approximately 25 minutes or Until they Are Done.
