Cinnamon Buns

Found the recipe from AllRecipes.Com. It was a 5* rating recipe with tonnes of positive reviews Reviews included "They're to die for", "Can't get enough of them.", etc... Yeah, you get the idea. So I tried the recipe in July but that was a failure as the buns ended up quite tough, not fluffy at all. My hubby said that I could kill with that :P Anyway, I tried the recipe again yesterday evening. And was really elated that the buns ended up quite nice & soft. Hubby gave me the thumbs up after devouring 2. My 1st sucessful bread making :) Definitely, going to bake more bread... :)

Hot & soft Cinnamon Bun.... Yummy...
Recipe for Cinnamon Buns
(makes 10-12)
125ml warm milk (I used water instead)
50g sugar
5g dry active yeast
1 egg, room temperature
35g melted butter
(C) Sift
300g bread flour (high protein flour)
(D) Mix
40g melted butter
50g brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
chopped pecan nuts (optional)
1) Dissolve sugar in warm milk/water. Add the yeast. Let it stand for 10mins, or till yeast is foamy.
2) Add (B) & mix a little. Add flour. Use dough hooks of beater and mix well till dough ball is formed.
3) Heat oven to 100 degrees & switch off. Cover dough with a moist towel over the bowl.
Leave in oven for 1hr or till dough has doubled.
4) Roll dough flat. Trim into a rectangular piece. Spread (D) over dough and sprinkle chopped pecan nuts all over. (The trimmed off dough can make another 2-3 buns)
5) Roll up dough & cut into small pieces. Place rolls on greased pan, leaving space for expansion. Cover & let the dough rise for 30 mins, or double.
6) Bake at 200 degrees in pre-heat oven for 15 mins or till golden brown.
7) Enjoy your cinnamon buns hot & soft. To keep, let them cool & put in air-tight container & keep in the fridge. Just need to reheat before serving.
