Cinnamon Bun with Orange Glaze Recipe

Prep: 2 Hours
Cook: 30 Minutes
Servings: 20 Donuts

Ingredients from your Baking Box:


300g Baker’s Flour
100g Brown Sugar
3g Baking Soda
3g Bicarbonate
5g Salt
3ml Vanilla Extract


Bag Cinnamon Sugar

You will also need:

1 Egg
45g Butter

The Recipe:

  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water for about 1 minute. Stir the yeast/water around. Then add sugar, salt, egg, 30g butter, and 300g of Bread Flour.
  2. Beat everything together on low with a handheld mixer, scraping the sides as needed. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a dough that’s easy to handle – about 300-350g. You want dough that is not sticky and will spring back when poked with a finger.
  3. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-6 minutes. Form dough into a ball and transfer it to a lightly greased bowl.
  4. Cover the dough and let prove until doubled; about 1.5 hours.
  5. Line the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with parchment paper, leaving room on sides.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface roll into a
  7. 10 x 15-inch rectangle with a rolling pin. Make sure the dough is smooth and evenly thick.
  8. In a small bowl, mix together sugar and cinnamon. Spread dough rectangle with softened butter and sprinkle generously with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Tightly roll up the dough and cut into even rolls (1 inch in width each) with a very sharp knife.
  9. Arrange them in the prepared baking pan.
  10. Cover the rolls and let prove for 30 minutes – 1 hour.
  11. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Cover rolls with aluminium foil and bake for about 25-30 minutes until they are light. Transfer the pan to a rack to cool.

Make the glaze: 
In a small bowl, mix together all of the glaze ingredients (Cinnamon Sugar and 15g Butter) and drizzle over rolls before serving. Add more orange juice to thin out, if needed.
