Ingredients
  • Dough Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) water
  • 1/2 package instant vanilla pudding -(1/2 of a 3-1/3 oz (95.2 grm). box)
  • 1 cup (225 ml) milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) sugar
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
  • 4 cups (950 ml) all-purpose flour (unbleached is best)
  • 2-1/2 tsp (12.5 ml) yeast
  • Filling:
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) butter, melted
  • 1 cup (225 ml) brown sugar
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) ground cinnamon
  • raisins (optional)
  • chopped nuts (optional)
  • Frosting:
  • 4 oz (112 grm). cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups (350 ml) confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) vanilla
  • 1-1/2 tsp (7 ml) milk
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp (1 ml) almond extract
Preparation
  • Dough:
  • Place ingredients in your bread machine following its specifications for the dough cycle.
  • When it is completed with the dough making option, remove from machine and roll out to a 17 inch x 10 inch (approx.) rectangle.
  • Filling:
  • Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
  • Spread melted butter over dough.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon mixture and the raisins and chopped nuts if you want them, on top of the buttered dough.
  • Roll tightly from long end, pinching edges closed when completely rolled.
  • Slice rolled dough into 3/4" slices, (I use the dental floss trick and avoid the problems with knife slicing).
  • Place into greased cake pans. (I use just my rectangle turkey roaster!).
  • Let rise until doubled.
  • Bake at 350 degrees (175 C.) for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden--Do not overbake! Essential to keep them tender and perfectly textured.
  • Frosting:
  • Mix all the ingredients together. (I have also used rum and brandy for flavorings with great success).
  • Spread on very warm rolls.
Comments
They are best when eaten fresh, but you can freeze them. Thaw to room temperature and then microwave them for about 15-20 seconds to warm them up.

Absolutely best with freshly ground coffee beans brewed into a rich hot coffee mixed with frothed steamed milk and the warm cinnamon-y decadent buns.. oh, yum.
