Cinnamon Buns

Soft and tender Cinnamon Buns made with our Sweet Dough Mix.  These buns come together in no time and can be made ahead of time and store in the fridge overnight to rise before baking for breakfast the next day.  Frost with traditional Sugar Glaze or Whipped Cream Cheese!


1 1/4 cups warm whole milk or dairy free milk

3/4 cups unsalted butter, melted

2 large eggs, lightly beaten


1 1/4 stick unsalted butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

4 tsp cinnamon


½ cup (4 oz) heavy cream


Sugar Glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar

3-4 tbsp milk, or more as needed for desired consistency

1 tsp vanilla


Whipped Cream Frosting:

3 oz cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/8 tsp salt

Oven Temperature:

Preheat oven to 350ºF

Bake Time:

25 - 30 min until golden brown

In a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, remove the YEAST PACKETS from the Sweet Dough Mix and add the flour to the bowl.  Add the yeast into the flour and whisk to combine.


Melt butter and add warm milk.  Whisk until combined.  Temperature should be between 105º - 110º.  Do not exceed 110º as it will kill the yeast.  Add lightly beaten eggs and mix.


With mixer running on low, add wet ingredients into dry ingredients.  Once completely combined, turn mixer up to about medium or medium high and beat for 5 minutes.  The dough should look sticky but smooth in texture.


Remove paddle attachment. Scrape dough together into a rough ball or mound. Spray a new bowl with cooking oil spray.  Place mound of dough, cover with plastic wrap and place in warm, draft-free area for 1.5 to 2 hours to rise. Once risen, immediately chill for at least two hours, preferably overnight so the dough stiffens a little and easier to handle.


On heavily floured surface, knead dough into a smooth ball, adding extra flour as needed until dough is no longer sticky (a little sticking is normal).  Roll out to 18-inch by about 10-inch rectangle (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick). It doesn't need to be perfect.


Mix together filling ingredients and spread evenly on dough. Use a spatula to evenly spread.


Roll up jelly roll style and pinch seam to close. Flip over so seam is down and cut using dental floss (unflavored), a serrated knife or bench scraper into 1 1/2-2 inch rolls. You should get about 8 large rolls or up to 12 medium rolls.


Place rolls into lightly sprayed greased 9 x 13 pain (or any casserole style dish) and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm, draft-free area until almost doubled in size. About 1-1 ½ hrs.


Optional Before Baking, pour the Heavy Cream on top making sure all the tops are poured over.


While rolls are cooling, whisk glaze ingredients in small bowl and drizzle over rolls.
