Cinnamon bun cake

Hard to choose between cake or cinnamon buns? Do not choose, do both! A cinnamon bun cake will be a fun element at a party, cinnamon bun day, or on any Friday. The cake is enough for about 10 servings. Tip! Was it over dough? Bake some regular cinnamon buns.


25 grams of fresh yeast for sweet doughs

50 grams of butter

3 dl milk

0.5 dl granulated sugar

1 krm salt

8 dl wheat flour


50 grams of butter, room temperature

2 teaspoons cinnamon, grind

0.5 dl granulated sugar

Brushing and topping

1 egg

2 tablespoons powdered sugar


1. Crumble the yeast in a bowl. Melt the butter in a pot. Add the milk and heat to the finger warm.

2. Pour some of the dough liquid over the yeast and stir until it dissolves.

3. Add the rest of the dough liquid over the dissolved yeast together with sugar, salt, and almost all the wheat flour (save a little for the actual baking).

4. Work the dough smoothly by hand or in a machine until the dough releases the edges of the bowl. Let the dough rise for about 30 minutes under a kitchen towel.


1. Place the dough on a workbench and knead it smoothly with the rest of the flour.

2. Roll out the dough into a plate of about 30×40 cm. Spread room temperature 

butter and then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar in an even layer over the dough.

3. Cut about 2 cm wide strips of the dough. Roll up the first piece into a “regular” cinnamon bun. Place it in the middle of a sheet of parchment paper. Then take the next piece and spin it around the first bun and continue until you are happy with the size, or until the plate is no longer enough.

4. Let rise under a towel for approx. 20 minutes, meanwhile heat the oven to 200 degrees.

5. Brush the bun with a beaten egg and top with powdered sugar. Bake in the middle of the oven for approx. 25-30 minutes until the bun is golden brown. Is the cake pale or doughy? Raise the heat to 225 degrees and bake for a few more minutes.

6. Allow to cool under a cloth or on a wire rack, or serve at the moment with a glass of ice-cold milk.
