Gluten Free Cinnabuns with Yeast

A recipe for Gluten Free Cinnabuns with yeast. These cinnabuns are soft, spicy and sweet and topped with a cream cheese icing. 

This recipe took three tries to get right, the first time my yeast had expired and the buns didn’t rise and the second time I forgot to add baking powder!

Third time is a charm!

NB notes:

  1. Warm up your milk, but don’t let it get too hot or it will kill your yeast.
  2. Don’t use oil in place of butter, you will get better results with butter, promise!
  3. Let your dough rise in a warm place – don’t skip this step, it wont rise as much as normal flour would, but it will rise slightly, enough to make the buns soft.

Okay, enjoy making these cinnabuns!

Ingredients

DOUGH:

  • 2 tsp baking powder gf if celiac
  • 2 ½ cups @woolworths_sa gluten free flour + more for dusting
  • 1 cup milk I've tried dairy / almond
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple
  • ¼ cup butter not oil
  • 1 packet yeast

FILLING:

  • ½ cup butter soft
  • 1/3 cup muscovado or brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 large egg whisked
  • 1 tbsp. soft butter
  • Soft Butter for hands

ICING:

  • 200 g cream cheese room temp
  • ½ - 3/4 cup icing sugar according to taste
  • 1 tsp water

Instructions

  • In a bowl, add butter, milk & honey and warm slowly in microwave until the butter is melted. MIXTURE MUST NOT BE HOT, just warm. Remove from microwave.
  • Add baking powder & yeast and slowly stir. Do not overmix. After 2 minutes, add the flour and mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms. (not longer than a min of mixing)
  • Cover the bowl with kitchen towel and place in the sun, indoors for 1 hour to proof. The dough is gluten free so it will only rise a little bit, but do not skip this step.
  • Place dough on gluten free dusted surface & roll into a rectangle shape, around half a cm thick. Spread the softened butter to cover the dough and evenly scatter the sugar & cinnamon.
  • Roll the dough into a log & cut it into about 10 – 12 wheels. (while rolling, add a little bit of soft butter to your hands to keep the dough moist) Place the pinwheels into a baking dish, leaving a bit of space between.
  • Now use your whisked egg and 1tbsp soft butter combo to brush the top of the buns.
  • Preheat oven to 200c & when ready, bake for 25 – 30 min or until brown
  • While baking, mix the cream cheese and 1/2cup icing and water until smooth. If you like it a bit sweeter, add more icing sugar.
  • Spread over buns and enjoy that same day – very short shelf life.
