Speedy Cinnamon Buns

It’s a public holiday today and the weather is lovely but fairly chilly.

So I needed a sunny and warming breakfast. What fits the bill, to speak Great-British-Menuish? Cinnamon buns!
I used a recipe from the book Home Made by Yvette Van Boven.
It is easypeasy. Mix 350g flour with a pinch of salt, 3 teaspoons baking powder and 75g cold butter.

Add 1 to 1.5dl buttermilk or milk (I used milk).

Knead it into a dough.

Work it with a rolling pin on a floured surface until it’s about 5mm thick.

Top with butter, sugar and cinnamon. The recipe also uses raisins and nuts. I went for a little cocoa powder because I’m not too keen on raisins and the cinnamon/cocoa combo worked well in my Rugelach.

Roll the dough up and cut it into buns. Put the buns on a baking tray (close together) and bake for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

And if you’re not careful, someone will nick your bun!

Thank God there’s more where that came from.

This is such an easy and speedy recipe that you could make a second batch in no time. Beware of the calories, though. There must be loads in there…
