Cinnamon Buns

So these are wonderful and I hope other people get a change to try them. Unlike a lot of cinnamon bun recipes, this one doesn't need a bread machine or yeast and you don't have to wait for the dough to rise. I tried my hand at making the ingredient quantities european friendly (even though I live in Sweden I've still managed to continue using cups) so use your best judgement when you try it. Don't be afraid to make changes to recipes... they're more suggestions than rules and you know best what you're going to like in your food.


For the Dough:

(110g)     3/4 cup cottage cheese
(1,2dl)     1/2 cup milk
(0,5dl )    1/4 cup granulated sugar
(4msk)    4 tbs unsalted butter, melted
(1tsk)      1 tsp vanilla extract
(4,5dl)     1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
(1msk)    1 tbs baking powder
(0,5tsk)   1/2 tsp table salt
(0,25tsk) 1/4 tsp baking soda


(1,4 msk) 1 1/2 tbs unsalted butter, melted
(1,6 dl)     2/3 cup brown sugar (brun farin is wonderful for this if you're in sweden)
(1,5 tsk)   1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


(1,6 dl)      2/3 cup confectioners sugar
(2-3 msk)  2-3 tbs cold milk
(1 tsk)       1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees (celsius). Grease the sides and bottom of a 9 or 10 inch springform pan.
  2. Blend cottage cheese, milk, sugar, melted butter and vanilla until smooth.Pour into a large bowl. In separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Add flour mixture to liquid mixture until smooth and doughy- pour out onto floured counter and roll the dough into a rectangle.
  3. For filling, brush the dough with the melted butter. Mix brown sugar with cinnamon and then sprinkle over the dough.
  4. Starting from the long edge, roll the dough and use butter to press the seams. Cut the roll in half, the halves in half, and then those halves in half- you should end up with eight.
  5. Arrange in pan and bake 20 to 25 minutes or until brown.
  6. For glazing, mix confectioners sugar, vanilla, and cold milk. Drizzle over rolls.

This is something that has nothing to do with your baking. :)

Unshaved Kame. It's OK, but I prefer without.
