This is my first cinnamon buns and I'm really happy for the result. I scared to cook cinnamon buns but in the end it's really fun to make. And I received my family jury's congratulations : trust me it's hard to have this "price".
This buns are sweet and flavorful. I took two pieces and I share one with my son...
I think I'll make some for Christmas' goodies.
8g instant yeast
240g warm milk
55g melted butter
21g ground cinnamon
30g melted butter
75g chopped walnuts
340g confectionner's sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
In the mixer bowl, mix milk and yeast until dissolved,then add flour, sugar, salt. Mix in lower speed 1 minute and 7 minutes in medium (add more flour or milk if necessary).
Tranfer the dough to a floured work surface, knead 1 minute and form a ball. Place the dough in a oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Remove the dough and let rise at room temperature 3 hours before to work with.
In a bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon.
On a floured work surface, roll the dough into a large rectangle (12 by 15). Brush the surface with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (leave 1/4 inch border) and then add raisins and walnuts.
Roll up the dought by rolling the large bottom to the large top.
Cut into 1 inch thick slices and put in a round cake pan lined with parchment paper. Place the roll 1 1/2 inches apart. Cover and let rise for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 10 minutes, rotate the pan and bake for 10 minutes more (buns must be golden brown).
Meanwhile, in a bowl confectionner's sugar with vanilla and milk. Make sure it's not too liquid.
Let cool buns 10 minutes and pour the glaze.
