Tips and Tricks

Yeast Activation

To ensure your yeast activates properly, use lukewarm milk and water, about 110°F. This temperature helps the yeast to bloom without killing it.

Dough Consistency

If your dough feels too sticky, gradually add a little more flour, one tablespoon at a time. Conversely, if it’s too dry, add a teaspoon of water until you achieve a soft, pliable dough.

Filling Distribution

For an even spread of the cinnamon sugar filling, soften the butter until it’s easily spreadable. This ensures a smooth and consistent layer over the dough.

Cutting the Rolls

Use a piece of unflavored dental floss to cut the dough into rolls. Slide the floss under the roll, cross the ends over the top, and pull tight. This method keeps the rolls from getting squished.

Rising Environment

Create a warm rising environment by placing your covered pan in an oven with just the oven light on. This slight warmth speeds up the rising process, especially in cooler kitchens.

Perfect Glaze Consistency

Adjust the glaze thickness by adding milk slowly, one teaspoon at a time. For a thicker glaze, use less milk; for a thinner drizzle, use more. Aim for a consistency that allows easy drizzling but isn’t too runny.

For the Filling:

 For the Glaze:


  • Place yeast at the bottom of the bread machine.
  • Add flour, sugar, and salt on top of the yeast.
  • Melt butter in the microwave.
  • Combine the beaten egg, milk, and water with the melted butter.
  • Pour this liquid mixture over the dry ingredients in the bread machine.
  • Set the bread machine to the dough setting.
  • Once the dough is ready, place it on a surface lightly dusted with flour.
  • Knead in enough flour to make the dough easy to handle. If it's too springy, cover it and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough using a floured rolling pin on a floured surface. Aim for a rectangular shape, about ¼-inch thick.
  • In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter together.
  • Spread this mixture over the entire surface of the rolled-out dough using a spoon.
  • Roll up the dough tightly.
  • Cut the roll into 1-inch thick circles using a sharp knife.
  • Place these circles in a greased 9×13-inch pan.
  • Cover the pan with a tea towel and let it sit in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or until the dough doubles in size.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for about 25 minutes, until the top is light brown.
  • When the buns are done, make a glaze and drizzle it over the buns.
