Awesome Cinnamon Buns

Awesome Cinnamon Buns

Let's start off with what your will need:

Grocery list:

1 quart whole milk (4 cups)
1 cup of vegetable oil
2 cup of sugar
2 packages of active dry yeast
9 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/8 tablespoon salt
4 1/4 cups of butter
1 bag of powdered sugar
2 teaspoons maple flavoring
1/2 cup milk
4 11 X 9 pans (I buy mine at GFS for like .99 each)

Put in a pan on the stove to start with the following:

1 quart of whole milk
1 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of sugar

On the stove put this on medium heat and heat till just before boiling.

Turn off the heat and let cool for at least 1 hour. Till it lukewarm. Once it's warm, NOT hot, sprinkle 2 packages of active dry yeast on top of mixture. Just let the yeast sit there for a minute before stirring in. Please make sure the mixture is not to hot when you add the yeast. If to hot it will kill the yeast and your buns.

Get a large mixing bowl and put into it 8 cups of all-purpose flour then pour over it your above mixture. I like to use my hands and dig in to mix the batter.

Once mixed real good cover and let sit for at least 1 hour.

After the hour add:
1 cup of flour
1 big teaspoon of baking powder
1 not full baking soda
1 big tablespoon of salt

Stir mixture really good. Just get your hands in there and mix that dough really good.

At this point you can continue and make the rolls or you can put it in the fridge over night and make them tomorrow.

This part is fun!

I put wax paper on my counter to roll the dough on for easy clean up. Do as you wish.
Sprinkle surface generously with flour.
Take 1/2 the dough and roll it out with a rolling pin. I try to make the dough into a rectangle shape.
Melt 1 1/2 to 2 cups of butter and drizzle onto dough. Also put a little bit of this butter into the bottom of each of your cooking pans.

Take 1 cup of sugar and sprinkle over butter on dough.

Generously sprinkle cinnamon over sugar on dough.

Now roll your dough and pinch and seal.

Get 4 11 X 9 cheap aluminum pans and drizzle butter into the bottom of each.

6 rolls will fit into each pan. So, take you dough and cut into half, then in half again then into 3. This will equal the 12 rolls you need. Place rolls into pans.

Let sit for about 20 minutes before cooking.

Preheat over to 400 and cook rolls for 18 minutes.


1 bag of powered sugar
2 teaspoons maple flavoring
1/2 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon salt

Mix together and drizzle on warm rolls.
