Rain and Cinnamom…

Rain….Rain…and Rain…
and you know what we do to keep us warm…. BAKE!!! :0)
Not completly true…but nice…

So today I baked Cinnamon buns ( Swedish)
150 g butter
5 dl milk
50 g fresh yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1- 1 1/2 dl sugar
14 dl wheat flour
…warm the milk to lukewarm…melt the butter in that…
Crumble the yeast into a bowl…add buttermilk and stir until the yeast is dissolved…
Add the rest of the sugar, salt and flour . Work into a smooth and silky dough…
Rest for 30 minutes

…make the filling…softened butter 150 g, vanilla-flavoured sugar and caster sugar (icing sugar?) mix this soft! (add sugar until it tastes Mmmmmm… 😉 )
…Make the buns…Divide the dough into two. Roll out each part to a large rectangle. Spread with buttermix and sprinkle over cinnamom! Roll each rectangle into a tight roll, starting at the long edge, and cut each roll into about 20 pieces. Place each piece in a paper cup on a baking sheet (covered with parchment paper so you won’t end up with a mess) Hmmm…I didn´t do this… 🙂 , cover and leave to proof for 30 minutes.

Beat an egg with 1/2 tsp of water, and brush this carefully on the buns. Finish by a light sprinkling of pearl sugar.
Bake at 225°C for 8 minutes, until they’re as golden as you like them.

And enjoy with a nice cup of tea!!!
Have a really good day… 🙂
