Sugary Cinnamon Buns

What you need
  • Bread baking machine. Fast acting yeast - 1 sachet
  • 300g white flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 table spoons of raisins, dried lemon/orange pieces
  • cinnamon, brown and white sugar
  • 120-150ml skimmed milk
  • pinch of salt
How you do it
With Bread Baking Machine
  • In the Panasonic breadbaking machine add the yeast first.
  • whisk the eggs
  • Put flour, milk, whisked eggs, 1 tblspoon sugar a pinch of salt into the bread pan
  • select 'Dough' programme
Without breadbaking machine
  • use a clean bowl. pour the flour in. in the centre of the bowl dig a small hole.
  • heat the milk until lukewarm - then add yeast and sugar. whisk until all is well mixed.
  • pour the mix into the small hole of the centre of the flour in the bowl.
  • cover with a kitchen towel and let rest for at least 30min. before you proceed check that the yeast is actually expanding.
  • next put the whisked eggs into the mix and knead the dough. add flour if necessary. It is useful to cover your hands in flour - so the mix won't stick to your hands.
  • form a ball and put back into the bowl. cover again with the towel and let it rest for another 2 hours.
Making the Buns
  • preheat the oven to 200 degrees (centigrade)
  • put the dough on non-sticky baking paper. roll out and form a rectangle. again cover your hands in flour to avoid the dough sticking to your hands.
  • once a rectangle cover the surface with a slight film of milk. this is so the fruits will stick.
  • cover the surface next with cinnamon and brown sugar. then add the raisins/lemons/orange bits evenly.
  • then start rolling up the dough. start at the long axis of the rectangular dough. continue rolling until the whole dough is rolled up and forms some kind of 'sausage'.
  • take a sharp knife and cut the dough into separate bits.
  • put the pieces on non-sticky baking paper. you may cover the buns with additional sugar/cinnamon.
  • put into oven for 20-25min until slightly brown.
