Cinnamon bun recipe

Hi all,

Who likes cinnamon buns? I love them! I probably made them around 10 times in the last couple of months ๐Ÿ™ˆ I’ve received so much positive feedback so I thought I’d share my recipe!

I kind of just took what I liked from different recipes and made it into something that was simple, easy and quick! They really take no time to make as most of the time is dedicated to the rising process.

So without further adieu here we go!

Cinnamon Buns


  • 1tbsp of traditional yeast (none of this quick rising nonsense)
  • 1 Tbsp of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of warm water
  • 3/4 cup of melted margarine (for dough, filling, and to spread on top)
  • 1 cup of cashew milk
  • 2 1/3 cups of white flour
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon



Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Add traditional yeast, sugar, and

warm water in a large mixing bowl. If the water is too hot it will kill the yeast!!! To check if it’s too hot stick your wrist in it. You should be able to comfortably have your wrist in the water.

Let sit for 10 minutes. It should appear bubbly and give off a yeasty scent.

In a pot, melt: 1/4 cup of margarine, add cashew milk and let it cool.

Pour into yeast mixture. Add in white flour -stir in 1/2 cup of flour at a time until it forms a dough ball.

Knead dough ball for 2 minutes.

Place it back into a bowl and cover with a warm towel.

Let rise for 30 minutes.

Roll dough out flat with rolling pin.

Spread 1/4 cup melted butter over top with brush.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 tbsp of cinnamon mixture over top.

Roll dough into a log shape.

Cut dough into 1 1/2 inch pieces.

Place pieces in buttered (10×4) tray.

Place a warm towel over the top of cinnamon buns and let them rise for 20 minutes (you can skip this step if you’re in a rush, it just makes them a little fluffier).

Spread melted margarine overtop of buns.

Put cinnamon buns in the oven for 25 minutes or until the tops turn golden brown.





8 tbsp of icing sugar

2 tbsp of cashew milk

1 tsp of vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp of allspice


Place all icing ingredients into one bowl Stir until all the white clumps are gone.

I multiplied this icing recipe about three times when I was making it. How much you make really just depends on how much icing you want!

Take cinnamon buns out of oven, let cool for 30 minutes

Pour icing over top

Serve and enjoy!

Yields: 12 cinnamon buns
