Good evening everyone, I hope you are all well.
Today’s temptations are soft, delicious buns with a cinnamon glaze.
Fluffy buns filled with vanilla marinated raisins and drizzled with a delicious cinnamon glaze,,,
Soo good, I hope you’ll be tempted!
Soft buns (yield: 12)
- 6 oz. (170 g) raisins + 1 1/4 cup (300 ml) boiling water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste
Put the raisins into a bowl.
Pour over the boiling water, leave to soak for 5 minutes and then drain. Add the vanilla extract to the plumped-up raisins and stir to mix.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside.
- 3 cups (375 g) all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons dried yeast
- 1/4 cup (50 g) regular sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 1/2 oz. (190 g) egg (approx. 4 eggs)
- 4 tablespoons (60 ml) milk
- 3/4 cup (165 g) unsalted butter
- + 1 extra egg (for the egg wash)
Put all the ingredients except the butter and the egg for the egg wash into a mixing bowl, then knead or use the dough hook attachment for 30 minutes.
After 20 minutes, add the butter a little at a time.
Grease the work surface and your hands, then scrape out the dough.
Tip out the raisins and knead them into the dough.
Make 12 buns, about 3 oz. (90 g) dough per bun.
Whisk the egg for the egg wash and pour it through a sieve, then brush the tops of the buns.
Leave to rise in a a warm place, about 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
While the buns are rising, preheat the oven to 375 ˚F (190 ˚C), fan setting.
Bake for about 22 minutes, or until golden brown.
Leave to cool completely. Well, ok I couldn’t wait that long, sorry!
- 2 cups (250 g) powdered sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 3 tablespoons (40 ml) milk
The flavor of this glaze is just perfect with the raisin studded buns.
Put all the ingredients for the glaze into a bowl and mix well.
Drizzle the glaze over the buns after they have cooled completely. I have to admit that I didn’t do this myself as I didn’t have time to wait..
The buns will still be delicious, though.
If you’re not a fan of cinnamon you can subsititute it with some vanilla paste.
I hope you’re tempted…
I wish you all a wonderful evening, and I hope you’ll have a great week.
Hugs from me to you.
