I adopted this recipe from Paula s Home Cooking telecasted in Food Network..
Here is how I made them..
For the buns
All Purpose Flour/maida - 4 cups
1/4 oz pack yeast
Sugar - 1/4 cup+2/3 cup
Cinnamon powder - 2 teaspoons
Raisins and walnuts
Salt to taste
For the glaze
Sugar - 2 cups
Butter - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Dissolve the yeast with a little warm water and leave it for 5 minutes...To this add 1/4 th cup of sugar,egg and the flour and knead well so that it forms an elastic dough..Cover the dough with a cloth and leave it in a warm place for half an hour..The dough must have raised and increased in volume by now..
Dust the countertop with flour and roll the dough into a big rectangle..It should be approximately 15 into 9 inches..It need not be an accurate rectangle..Now brush the whole surface of the rolled out dough with melted butter..
Mix 2/3 rd cup of sugar with the cinnamon powder and sprinkle it all over the dough..Also sprinkle some raisins and walnuts..
You can also use any other dried fruits and nuts..
Roll the dough using your hands from the smaller end until you reach the other side..
Now cut the dough perpendicularly of about one and a half inch thick..
Place them on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes..
Meanwhile prepare the glaze..
Mix the 2/3 cup of sugar with the butter and water and brush this mixture on top of the cooled buns..
The Cinnabuns are ready..
