Cinnabuns, sweet sweet cinnabuns

This weeks Sweet Melissa Sunday was supposed to be Sticky Buns with Toasted Almonds but as I browsed through the recipe I noticed Melissa’s cinnamon variation hiding quietly at the end. Cinnamon buns I thought, screw the sticky buns, I’m making those!

Cinnamon is probably my favorite thing in the world, well, favorite thing in the world to eat, I dread to think about the amount of tubs I go through in a year. Sweet, savory, sprinkled on cakes and pancakes, is there anything this beautiful spice can’t make better? In a word, no!

My dough turned out rather sticky, much like the brioche bee stings a few month back. Even after the full 15 minutes kneeding the dough still slapped itself all over the mixer. I added 3 heaped tbsp of extra flour which seemed whip it into shape. Also, my first rise took about 3 hours and the second around an hour and a half but even with all the extra waiting these buns won my heart. I baked them up 9am on Sunday morning before a trip to the market and what a wonderful breakfast they provided. Delightful.

Thank you to Jen of Not Microwave Safe for this lovely pick! Perfect for those chilly mornings we all know too well. Check out the SMS girls for more sticky buns!

    I love the pink (or is it purple) icing! Mine are in the final rise phase now. I hope they look as good as yours.

    Thanks for baking, Katie! I was totally going to pick the cinnamon rolls, but didn't see them on the recipe list online, so I picked the sticky buns hoping people would also let me know what they thought of the cinnamon rolls. I love the pink icing, and definitely go through tons of cinnamon, too! Great job!-Jen

    While I would always go for sticky over cinnamon, your buns look scrumptious. Love the pink icing topping!

    Your cinnamon buns look wonderful. I debated making this version, but did sticky buns.

    The buns look fabulous with the coating of pink icing. I made both versions and definitely recommend the sticky buns (the sauce has lots of cinnamon in it, so I think you'll like it).

    I love the pink frosting! I was hoping these wouldn't be that much better than the pre-made kind from the grocery store, but they were to die for! Now I'm going to be stuck making them all the time!!
