Christmas Calendar 2020 Day 17 - Buns with orange & cinnamon


As starting recipe for the bun I used this recipe on classic buns, which really have become my favorite bun recipe. As the Christmas twist I have added orange juice and cinnamon into the bun dough. I served these buns for a few selected Christmas guests. 

Buns with orange & cinnamon: 16-18 buns

  • 650 g wheat flour
  • 50 g sugar
  • 100 g sunflower/rape seed oil
  • 25 g fresh yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 8 g salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2½ dl orange juice
  • egg wash for glazing
  1. Weigh all the ingredients directly into the mixing bowl of the stand alone mixer. Keep salt & sugar away from the yeast.
  2. Place the bowl on the stand-alone mixer.
  3. Start knead the dough at speed 1 for 8 minutes.
  4. Afterwards increase the speed to 4, knead for 2 minutes. Check the consistency of the dough. If it is not OK, when knead it at speed 4 for another 2 minutes. Again check the consistency. If needed, knead again for 1 minute and when check consistency of the dough.
  5. Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and place it on the kitchen table sprinkled with flour.
  6. Let the entire dough raise for approx. 30-40 minutes under a damp cloth.
  7. When you evaluate, that the dough has raise enough, divide the dough into smaller pieces with a weight of 80 g each.
  8. Place the bun pieces on the baking tray covered with baking parchment. 
  9. Let the bun raise for second time for approx 40 minutes under a tea towel.
  10. Heat up the fan oven to 200'C.
  11. Bake the bun at 200'C for 15 minutes, turning the baking trays around after 8 minutes to get an even baking.
  12. Cold down the buns, before serving them with a nice cup of tea/coffee.
