Foodbook #904 Greek cinnamon raisin buns


Good morning my friends and happy weekend, let's eat together this and I am pretty sure you will love it. So let’s do it together step by step



300 g milk, room temperature
50 g butter, melted
2 tablespoon(s) yeast
1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
70 g granulated sugar
500 g all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon(s) cloves, powder
1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon, powder
orange zest, from 1 orange
50 g raisins
1 egg yolk, diluted in 1 tablespoon water

To serve
2 tablespoon(s) butter
2 tablespoon(s) honey
1/4 teaspoon(s) cinnamon


In a mixer’s bowl add the milk, butter, yeast, vanilla, sugar, and mix with a hand whisk. It would be good to let the mixture rest for 20 minutes, so that the yeast is activated.
In a bowl add the flour, cloves, cinnamon, salt, orange zest, raisins, and mix with a spoon.
Add the solid ingredients into the mixer’s bowl with the rest of the ingredients, and beat with the hook attachment at medium speed for 5-8 minutes until the dough thickens.
Transfer into a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow 1 hour for it to rise.
Divide the dough into 10 pieces, shape the raisins buns, and transfer into baking pans lined with parchment paper.
Cover with a towel for 30-60 minutes, so that they rise.
Preheat the oven to 180ο C (356ο F) set to fan.
As soon as the raisin buns rise, brush the egg wash, and bake for 20-25 minutes. 15 minutes into baking time, switch the baking pans in the oven.
Set them on a rack to cool.

To serve
In a saucepan add the butter, honey, cinnamon, and transfer on heat until the butter melts.
Brush the cinnamon raisin buns with a pastry brush, and serve.

Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people

My best wishes from Greece
