Can’t stop eating: Cinnamon Bun

Oh my I have been craving for cinnamon bun since I’ve watched Cook with April youtube video. So I decided to give it a try. I kinda tweak the recipe a little bit with the recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction website.

I had to kinda mix the recipe because I wanted a smaller portion, and because I don’t have a bread machine and bread flour so here what I kinda end up with mixing the two recipes. It turn out so fluffy and gooey in the middle I end up having 3 buns and had to put it aside so stop eating it. So thank you April and Sally for amazing recipes!



I forgot to cover up the top after 15 minutes that why it turned out very brown.


  • 2 and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 2 and 1/2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

Fillings (mix up the sugar and cinnamon powder)

  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of cinnamon powder
  • (put aside some 2 tablespoon of soften butter to spread on top of the dough)

Coffee Glaze (mix it all up well)

  • 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of strong coffee
  • 2 tablespoon of milk


Ok so I kinda didn’t follow the instruction as thoroughly as it should both of April’s Nor Sally’s but it turn out great so phewwww, and I even forgot to put in the egg, even though the recipe called for eggs ooppsie. I mean it turn out yummy still I let you know next time if I made it with eggs what is the difference.

I just have to show the gooey goodness inside *sorry for the duckie plate!


I mixed all the dry ingredients together, flour, salt, yeast and sugar. Then in another bowl I put the milk and butter and heat it up in the microwaves until butter is melted and hot to touch.

Mix dry and wet ingredients all together. Add more flour if the dough is gooey. You need to get that sticky consistency. Knead the bread on a floured surface for 4-5 minutes and set it aside.

Then rolled out your dough to a rectangle shapes with about 1 cm thick.

Butter up the surface with the soften butter then sprinkled all the cinnamon sugar on top. Roll it up real tight and cut it up into 8-10 pieces. Place it on a butter baking tray, I just used my rectangular pyrex dish.

Then leave it out to rise. A good tip from Sally is to preheat your oven 100C for 10 minutes  turn it off and put the tray in and let the dough rise for 60-90 minutes.

After that you can bake it for 25 minutes on 190C oven.  Cover it after 15 minutes with a foil or baking paper so it doesn’t go to brown.

Put the glaze on top and enjoy!!! I don’t think you can resist the cinnamony smell lingering in the kitchen!
