Sunday's Recipe: Cinnamon Buns

It's been a long while since my last "Kitchen Heals Soul" post but I've been spending a lot of my free time camera-less in the kitchen, trying out new foreign dishes and baked goods. Initially I was going to make cinnamon buns last weekend but - as it's always the case - unexpected things far less pleasurable than biting into warm delicous delights happen that need to be attended first. 

Nothing, not even the almost three hour preparation of these buns could hold me back and I was determined to bake them this Sunday. I had saved this recipe via "Cupcakes & Cashmere" a while ago and followed it exactly, even to measuring and cutting the right size of rectangle. Sometimes I get caught up in stupid details...

If you're used to cooking/baking with US measurements I'll suggest to use the original linked recipe with the instructions. Here's the list of ingredients converted into grams.


250 ml milk
420 gr flour
100 gr sugar
1 large egg
2 envelopes of dry yeast
1 Tsp. salt

150 gr brown sugar
60 gr butter
2 Tbsp. cinnamon

115 gr cream cheese
100 gr powdered sugar
60 gr butter
1/2 Tsp. vanilla extract

These were my first homemade cinnamon buns and the recipe yielded two dishes so I froze the remaining buns without glazing them. I'm sure I'll need the comforting cinnamon & sugar on a cold, over-worked morning to heal my soul...

Have a good start to the week!

sind 2 tütchen trockenhefe nicht zu viel? :(

Hallo Luisa

Da es schon eine Weile her ist, bin ich mir nicht mehr sicher, ob ich wirklich zwei Päckchen verwendet habe. Aber wenn ich es so geschrieben habe, vermutlich schon... Ich arbeite selten mit Trockenhefe und kann das deshalb nicht abschätzen. Vielleicht würde es auch mit "normaler" Hefe gehen.

Sorry, dass ich nicht wirklich weiterhelfen konnte.

Liebe Grüsse
