Recipe: Cinnamon buns

My friend Helô and her husband, Martin, started a super cool Instagram account where they post all the things food. I love cinnamon buns but had always been a little intimidated by the number of ingredients necessary to make them until I watched their video. They made it seem not so complicated. So, I tried baking them this past weekend and they turned out delicious! The recipe is below, but you should also take a look at their video, it's really fun!

Cinnamon buns (Recipe from Let's Food This)
750g flour
110g sugar
110g butter
14g yeast
400ml milk
1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients. With a mixer, stir in milk and butter. Let it rise for 45 minutes then roll it out in a floured surface.
110g butter
50g cream cheese
90g sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon powder
Mix all ingredients and spread over rolled out dough. Roll up the dough and cut. 

Brush rolls with 1 egg.

Bake for about 15 minutes in a preheated oven set to 375ºF.

Frost with sugar icing and enjoy!
