Do you like buns?

Cinnamon Buns that is....
I have eaten at many places that serve cinnamon buns, but I have to say, the buns you are about to see will blow your mind away….
If you follow this recipe, you will die and go to cinnamon bun heaven:

Raisin Cinnamon Buns
Servings: 6 buns

3 cup of unbleached bread flour
6 tbsp butter (room temperature)
2 large eggs
½ cup milk (warm)
½ cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp instant yeast
1 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp water
Spice mix
3 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 stick butter- 8 tbsp (room temperature)
1 cup raisins

4 tbsp butter (room temperature)
1 cup confectioner sugar
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
Egg wash
1 egg
3 tbsp water


Spice mix
Mix together all the ingredients.

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water and cover bowl for 15 minutes or until expands 3 times its size.  In a stand mixer with hook attachment, add flour, eggs, butter, milk, sugar, and salt and yeast mixture and knead with 2 speed for about 3-4 minutes.  In a separate bowl, buttered or oiled, put dough in and cover. Leave in covered bowl for about 4 hours or until dough rises 3 times its size.

When dough triple its size, turn dough onto a flour surface. With a rolling pin, roll dough out into large rectangle.

Brush spice mix all over surface of rolled out dough. Roll up cinnamon roll and cut in 3 inch pieces.

Place in glass oven tray and cover with towel and allow to rise double its size for 2-3 hours. (If you press gently with your finger on a bun it should bounce back but your fingerprint should remain a bit.)

Brush buns with egg wash (made by whisking eggs and water together).  Preheat oven 350 degrees. Bake for 15-20 minutes on 350 degrees until golden brown. While buns are baking, make glaze by mixing butter, vanilla, sugar and maple syrup together by whisking until smooth. Once buns are out of oven, brush with glaze right away!
