Lifecruisers cinnamon buns

Why not surprise your hon with some bun fun?

Have some Friday fun! Bake buns together! Could be really fun, especially if you both are baking-buns-virgins ;-)

Having problems to get your partner interested in baking buns? Read this secret tip: Bake nude! Works all the time – don’t get too hot though ;-)

Our Swedish Cinnamon buns


50 g yeast
150 g butter
0,5 L milk
150 ml sugar
0,5 tsp salt
(1 tsp cardamom, optional)
1,2-1,5 L wheat flour

75 g butter
50 ml sugar
50 ml ground cinnamon
(1 tbsp vanilla sugar, optional)

For brushing:
2 egg
(granulated sugar, optional)

Melt butter in a saucepan, pour over milk and warm to 37°C (106°F, finger warm). Pour the mixture over the crumbled yeast, add sugar, salt (and cardamom if desired – I don’t), mix. Add flour, work the dough smooth.

Allow the dough to rise to double volume under a kitchen towel in a draft free spot for about 30-40 minutes.

Kneed and divide in two. Roll out the dough into two rectangles about 60 cm long and 0,3-0,5 cm thick. Mix the butter with the sugar and maybe the cinnamon if you’re sure of the amount cinnamon you want and spread the rectangles with it.

Roll them up and pinch rolls together at seams. Cut rolls into rings, 2 cm thick, place the rings with the cut surface up in paper moulds and let them rise under a kitchen towel again for about 30 minutes.

Brush with the beaten eggs, sprinkle with granulated sugar on the top if desired and bake in the middle of the oven at 250-275°C (482-527°F) for 5-10 minutes.

To alternate if you bake often, you can change the filling to hazelnut mix that’s available ready in the stores, mix that with some butter to make it smooth and spread it on the dough.

Y U M M Y A L E R T S !

TIP: Hand over a towel for all the drooling when you can feel the smell from the buns in the oven…

    Happy and Blue 2 said:

    I might just try to make these on the weekend.
    Does the dish towel have to be clean. And do I bake it with the dough or without.
    And can I use real dust instead of cinnamon. I have lots of dust laying around but not much cinnamon..

    Lifecruiser: Well, it’s your choice completely, it depends on wether or not you shall eat them or offer them to your nasty neighbours ;-)

    Mandy NETHERLANDS said:

    I don’t like cinnamon, and it seems to be the in thing around here. I know I could use something else, or maybe nothing at all.. hmmm. Thing is, I know I won’t bake these though, I just don’t have the time so why am I complaining? LOL

    Mandy x

    Lifecruiser: Hm, don’t like cinnamon hah? I never heard of anyone that don’t, how interesting :-) But as it says, you can choose hazelnut filling instead which is really yummy.

    Have a cyber bun anyway ;-)

    Miss Ass.Lifecruiser SWEDEN said:

    Just a small tips…. mix the butter sugar and cinnamon..and spread it on.. that way you don’t have cinnamon all over the kithchen after the bake!

    The lussebulls recepy is on your e-mail…. lol

    Lifecruiser: Yes, we knew that since both our mothers did it that way and we have done it like that before, but somehow we didn’t remember that this time… *lol*

    The recipe is now changed with this information.

    Thanks, I’ll check my email!

    Chi UNITED STATES said:

    Oh, yummy….these look so mouth-watering! I sure wished I was good at baking…I’m gonna snag this recipe for my daughter…maybe she will share with me. *s*

    Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Lifecruiser: I’m sure you could make it Chi – why not bake together with your daughter? It’s FUN :-)

    Good gravy marie!!!? No need for a towel here at my house…why, I haven’t had a ‘bun in the oven’ for decades. Then, come to think of all this mixing and stirring up sweet gooey things….just what IS that goo? And at my age, 57, I’d be locked in a mental institution to find there was a bun in MY oven!—I’d go stark ‘naked’ raving mad at this point.

    I’d be at the boiling point! Not to mention blaming it on Dear Hubby. Oh, and he’d have oven rack burns on HIS buns!!!! (But don’t tell anyone!)

    Baking in the nude indeed. I can see it all now…the headlines in 9 months from today—-Wystful is driven wild! (but then again, to think more deeply on the subject — it WOULD be a VERY short trip!!!)


    Lifecruiser: *ROFLMAO*… so no buns in the oven there… in this (nut)case it seems more secure to prevent you so you not burns buns like that ;-)

    PS. One more extra point on the way to being approved as a A-Team Cruiser, way to go Wystful! :-)

    Debbie UNITED STATES said:

    Mrs. L you know if I used your suggestion for getting help from hubby in the kitchen I would never have an issue with weight. I would be very thin! And hungry! LOL

    As is we share the cooking and do lots of it together! Your buns look wonderful and I might give them a try one weekend when the kids are around to eat them! Or just my son, as he loves a good cinnamon bun! Thanks for the share!

    Lifecruiser: *giggles* The perfect diet method then ;-)

    Napfisk BELGIUM said:

    I like the idea of the cardamom although I seem to remember having spent quite a while to actually find it a while back.

    I would advise against cooking in the nude, though. Sounds just a tad too dangerous. And you need a strategically located kitchen for that. I wouldn’t want to surprise my neighbours with that.

    Cheers, enjoy the weekend!

    Lifecruiser: Hm…you got point there, you’ll never know if you’re lossing control sometime and burn yourself…. Maybe we ahve to rebuild the kitchen a bit! *lmao*

    martin UNITED KINGDOM said:

    Yummy, they look nice!

    Baking nude hey? what tool are you using to put the holes in the centre of the doughnuts?

    Have a great weekend folks!


    Lifecruiser: Or what we use to hang them on…. *lol*

    Lazy Daisy UNITED STATES said:

    The first time I made bread I killed off half the yeast. We called it Midnight Sun bread because we were in Alaska at the time and it took till midnight to get it to rise.

    Lifecruiser: Ha ha, the midnight sun – *lol*

    Christine UNITED STATES said:

    HOT Buttered Buns! Yummm……Thanks for the recipe and the FUN!
    Have a great weekend!

    Lifecruiser: I’m glad you liked them, have a bun weekend you too :-)

    eph2810 UNITED STATES said:

    Finally a recipe where I am familiar with the measurements *lol* – they sound so yummy. I might have to try baking them this weekend…Thanks for sharing.
    Are they as good as the ones you can get at Ikea?

    Lifecruiser: Yes, I know, the measurements are a bit difficult between the countries. I use online conversion for that.

    And they are MUCH BETTER than Ikea’s!!!!! *lol*

    Teena CANADA said:
