Cinnamon Buns

All purpose flour/Maida -2 cups
Rapid rise Instant Yeast -1 teaspoon
Cinnamon Powder-1teaspoon +2 tablespoons
Sugar-1/4cup + 1 teaspoon
(Butter-milk-egg in Room temperature)

Dissolve Yeast with a teaspoon of sugar and salt in Luke warm water . Keep it aside for 10 minutes.

Heat the milk in microwave for a minute with butter and let it cool. Once it cooled down, add the 1/4cup sugar & egg, mix it well, then add the yeast, whisk it together.

Add the Cinnamon powder and flour, mix it and knead it well for 10 minutes. Add flour little by little after adding 11/2 cups..Stop adding the flour once you get the kneading consistency.

Initially the dough may be sticky, but after knead for 5-6 minutes it will become a soft non-sticky dough. Coat the dough with little oil and wrap it with clear wrap, keep it aside for 11/2hours.
By that time dough would be doubled in size..punch the air and roll it(1/4" thickness) with a rolling pin. Cut out the circles. If you wish you can cut a small inner circle with a cookie cutter.(I've used a bottle cap. ;) )

Arrange the buns in the baking sheet, cover it with the wrap and let it rise for another 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375F, brush the buns with little milk and bake for 30 minutes.

Keep 2 tablespoons of sugar in a plate. Brush the buns once they come out of the oven with the ghee and roll it on the sugar.

Cinnamon Buns are ready! You can enjoy as it is as a snack..or with Butter and jam with a hot pipping cup of coffee & an egg as a breakfast! :)

You would be wondering why the buns are in the shape of a dough-nut,right?? .........Well, I was looking for a recipe for baked dough-nut, followed almost all the steps! Whoa.. finally the baked doughnuts(!) tasted just like buns. Hence the recipe name became Cinnamon Buns! ;) ;)

So, what you think? Are they buns or dough-nuts????? :)))))))))
