Come fall into a pillow of soft, fluffy cinnamon buns!
These cinnamon buns really are dream-like. And I bet they’re much easier to make than you think!
Just look at those cinnamon swirls! Ahh I love when baked goods are acceptable for breakfast. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to these?!
At the bakery I used to work at, cinnamon buns were our specialty. We made buns the size of your head! Ok, well maybe not that big… but they were pretty darn big. You can make buns as big as you’d like with my recipe–I opted for the average size here, but by all means, make them as big as you’d like!
No diets allowed here… because we’ve got delicious cream cheese glaze to top everything off!
What really annoys me with a lot of cinnamon bun recipes is that you have to make the time for numerous rises. Usually, you have to do a lot of work the morning you want to bake them–inconvenient for lazy people like me! So these cinnamon buns take only one rise and can be fully prepared the night before! I know, I know, you’re welcome.
You’ll let the dough rise once, shape the cinnamon buns (see details in recipe instructions) and pop them in the fridge. All you’ll do the morning of is take the cinnamon buns out of the fridge and leave them on the counter for about a half hour–about the time the oven takes to preheat!
I bet you’ll be shocked at how few ingredients these babies require–you probably already have them all!
So if you’re ready to fall into a pillow of fluffy, rich goodness, keep on reading for the recipe!
