Butternut Cinnabuns Recipe

Sweet, spicy and delicious!

PREP TIME: 1hr 40 (includes proving time for dough)
COOKING TIME: 30 minutes
SERVES: Makes 12 rolls

Recipe Ingredients:

4 cups cake flour
½ of a sachet yeast (10g)
1 cup (250ml) cooked and mashed butternut
½ – 1 cup (125ml – 250ml) lukewarm milk
2 Tbsp (30ml) soft butter
2 Tbsp (30ml) granulated sugar
½ tsp salt


⅓ cup (80ml) SPAR butter, softened
¾ cup (180ml) SPAR sugar
1 Tbsp (15ml) cinnamon
½ cup (125ml) pecan nuts, chopped


½ tub cream cheese, room temperature
4 tablespoons (60ml) butter, softened
1 cup (250ml) icing sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup (60ml) milk

Recipe Method

* To make the buns, combine the bun ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

* Add enough milk to make a kneadable dough. The softer the dough the better but you need to be able to manage it.

* Knead until smooth – it should take about 10 minutes.

* Cover and leave to double in size – it should take about 1 hour.

* On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a rough rectangle of about 40cm x 20cm.

* Spread the butter all along the surface of the dough, coat in cinnamon sugar and scatter the pecan nuts evenly across the dough.

* Roll the dough up from the shortest side to form a long sausage.

* Cut into 12 equal-sized rolls.

* Pop into a greased baking tray (about 30cm x 20cm). Cover and leave to rise for another 30 minutes.

* Preheat the oven to 180C.

* Bake the rolls for 30 minutes or until golden.

* To make the icing, mix all the ingredients together well until smooth.

* Spread the icing all across the rolls and enjoy – they are at their best warm!
