Try these amazing, cinnamon buns they are very hard to resist.

Cinnamon buns is a Scandinavian classic, this recipe i picked up in Norway when i was working in Stavanger, in Norway they call them "Kanelsnurra" and there is also a Swedish version of this amazing bake in Sweden they call them "Kanel bulla"

When i was around 11-12 years old, i would deliver newspapers on bike in the morning before i went to school, and at the end of my route i would knock on the backdoor to the local bakery, and have a chat with the baker, exchange a fresh newspaper with a fresh Danish pastry and one day he asked me if i wanted to come and work in the bakery, to help out a bit with the cleaning of...

1. Cinnamon buns introduction: in this lesson, we're gonna make some amazing cinnamon buns. This recipe originates from Galway and in Norway. They called him. Can you Snorre? There's also a Swedish recipe off a cinnamon bunch. It's a little bit different on and shape them in a different way. And in Sweden, they call them Can l Bola. So enjoy these. Amazing give them. 2. Scale of the ingredients.: So now I'm going to start off by scaling off my ingredients we're going to start off with to wonder on 50 gram of whole milk 25 grams off yeast I'm just going to solve my yeast in the milk a little bit. Doesn't have to be completely dis salt It's gonna be mixed out 50 Crime off X It's like 500 grams off all purpose flour Gonna take 75 gram off cost of sugar Gonna take five grams off salt, 10 grams off guard Iman And that is ground cardamom 75 gram off bottom. Soft butter makes it easier to make seven dough that I'm going on at my my milk on ec and yeast Andi, I'm gonna makes that for six minutes on my mixer on slow speed 3. Mix the dough.: now Mexico for six minutes on a slow speed. So when you're do is mixed. You want toe, take a little bowl on. Lightly grease is just to prevent the dough from sticking congestions any neutral oil, and then you take your you don't put it in there, and then we're gonna rest up for for a couple of hours in the fridge covered with some cling film. And then it's ready toe to make the cinnamon buns. And while this, though, is arresting in the fridge, you can make your your cinnamon fillings. 4. Make the cinnamon bun filling: on for your cinnamon filling. You're gonna take 300 grams off. Good, but then we're gonna take 300 grounds off. Cast a shiver 40 grams off a good organic cinnamon, and it might seem like a lot of cinnamon, but it's really important when you make cinnamon buns that there's enough. I have heated the microwave oven, see the bodies really soft. So then you just mix it by hand. So but I just want to keep on mixing until there's no dry sugar, cinnamon on it, just like that, man. Now we are ready to make some cinnamon buns. 5. Roll Down The Dough & Add Filling.: so I cheated a little bit and I made a dough yesterday that is ready to make some cinnamon buns. So let's start toe roll out the door first. I'm gonna flower on my surface a little bit. Not too much. You could see this, though, has proved toe double size, so I'm just gonna press it down a little bit. I'm gonna give it a medal, flour. And I'm gonna use, like, a rolling pin that you can get in in the shop. You can buy it on Amazon as well. Well, without rectangular, make sure it doesn't stick to the table. - Then I'm gonna spread the cinnamon feeling with a palette knife. You don't want to be too cheap on the feeling. Gonna spread it in a even there. Make sure you get all the way to reach. I'm gonna fold this So the middle just like that, I'm gonna fall off the top, push it a little bit. Make sure there's some a little bit of flow on the table. I'm gonna and we are now ready to cut and shape our cinnamon buns. 6. Cut & shape the cinnamon buns: got some stripes with a good shot life. And they're about, like, a good finger. Thickness can do. You can use a pizza collar. You don't have a shop. Yeah, yes, There's no exact size. Can make them bigger if you want to. It's a good idea to leave the door to rest it on the table before you cut them so they don't contract. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I can see we have one layer off, though. One layer of cinnamon, one layer of dough on layoff cinnamon on one. Lay off though. So now we are ready to make our cinnamon buns. Just gonna move this a little bit, and here at this point, you don't want too much flour on your table. So what you gonna do, issue? You take the end here, and then you're gonna roll it like this and then and put it in the hole here. So you get a nice not and stretch it a little bit Roll it around two fingers under up and into the hole. Stretch it a little bit, Roll it, twist it under oh, in the hole, stretch a little bit, roll it under up and the whole stretch it, roll it on the up in the hole, stretch it, rolling a little bit around two fingers under oh, into the hole and pull it through. Stretch a little bit. Roll it around two fingers under on into the hole. It's quite simple. When you get it, stretch a little bit, roll it around two fingers underneath, up and into the hole and pull it through. So when you made, like, three or 4000 of these, then you will have it. So no more messing around. - There you have it. And then we put the bonnet bacon, clay, and there you have it. Leave it to proof covered with Tito. Prove until the double in size prayer. Jovan, toe 1 92 100 degrees Celsius, that is. 7. Prepare the cinnamon buns for baking.: So now my cinnamon buns are approved and they're ready to bake. But before I bake them, I want to give them a little bit of egg wash so they become nice and soft and shiny, so you just give them a good backwash. When you bake cinnamon bunch, you don't want toe. Bake them for too long. That would become dry. Still, you want them to be a little bit doughy in the middle, - and you can preheat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius. - There you go. Now they're ready to bake. Baked them for between 15 and 20 minutes, depending on your oven until they're golden brown. But make them so they're a little bit light in the edge and don't overbake them. They will become really dry, so let's get baked. 8. The final product & a final word from your instructor.: So guys has to my cinnamon buns. And as you can see, they're very light decide and the dark on top. That's exactly how we wanted. I wanted to be a little bit soft and if you could smell this, this is really, really, really amazing. And it tastes fantastic. What you want to do now you want you want to leave them to cool down a little bit before you start to begin. I want to make yourself a really nice cup of coffee. See this nice and soft Just like the way you want us to remember. This is fantastic. And I hope you want to try to make this cinnamon buns. They are truly amazing. A cup of coffee to share with a friend.
