Mini Sweet Georgia Browns Cinnamon Buns

For the dough

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk, scalded
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup ice cold water
  • 2 tbsp instant yeast
  • 5 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 box Mini Sweet Georgia Brown, chopped

For the filling

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp cinnamon
  1. In mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar together.
  2. Heat up your milk together with salt and butter. Stir until butter has melted, then add cold water to cool down the mixture (until it's warm).
  3. Add warm milk mixture to the egg mixture, stirring continuously.
  4. Mix the yeast with two cups of the flour, and mix well with the liquid mixture. Continue adding one cup of flour at a time, beating with hook attachment. Knead for several minutes, until smooth and elastic-like.
  5. Cover with a clean tea towel. Let rise for 60-75 minutes until double in size.
  6. Deflate the dough and divide it in half.
  7. On a floured surface, shape half of the dough into a rectangle. Roll out to about 12 X 18 inches. Spread onto dough 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 2 tbsp cinnamon and half of the chopped Mini Sweet Georgia Browns. Roll it up jelly-roll style, cut into 1.5 in slices and place on a well-greased pan, leaving about ¾ of an inch space between each.
    • Repeat with other half of the dough.
  8. Cover pan loosely with plastic and allow to rise for 60 minutes in an area free of drafts, then bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes.

TIP: For extra gooey cinnamon buns, mix 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar and coat your pan with a thin layer of this mixture prior to baking.
