I decided to kick it off with my ultimate favourite’s right after malva pudding. I made these once and I just fell in love with them, that freshly baked cinnamon smell had me hooked. I made a fudge sauce to drizzle over them because the sweeter the better! Anyway here’s how I made these cinnamon goodies.

Ingredients 

500 ml cake flour

2 ml salt      

50 ml white sugar

10 g instant yeast

¼ cup margarine

100 ml warm milk

1 egg

5 ml vanilla essence

50 ml lukewarm water

Filling

100 ml Margarine

200 ml light brown sugar

15 ml cinnamon

Fudge Sauce

60 ml Margarine

200 ml brown sugar

100 ml warm milk

5 ml vanilla essence

Method

Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line 23 cm round cake tin & one baking tray.

Sift the flour, salt and sugar together. Add the yeast and mix. Melt the margarine in the lukewarm milk, add the eggs and whisk to mix.

Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture to form soft dough. Add the water and adjust as required.

Knead the dough well for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic and leave to rest for 20 minutes in a warm place.

Knock the dough down and roll into 20-30 cm square. Mix the brown sugar, margarine and cinnamon together.

Spread the filling over the dough.

Fold the dough over into a half and slice into strips. Wrap each strip around your fingers almost like you’re forming a knot.

The other option is to roll the dough up and form into a roll. Slice the roll.

Place the slices cut side down, into a greased and lined 23 cm round cake tin. Allow to rise in a warm place until double in volume about 20 minutes. Do the same for knotted rolls but place onto a baking tray.

Sticky Fudge sauce

Melt butter in a sauce pan with the brown sugar, stirring till sugar dissolves, bring to a boil for 2 minutes till sauce thickens, remove from heat and carefully stir in the hot milk and vanilla essence.

Drizzle over buns while they are still warm.
