Makes 9 buns

3 ½ cups (420 g) flour
2 ¼ tsp (1 package) (1/4 ounce/7g) dry active yeast
2 tbsp (25 g) of sugar
1 tsp salt (5 ml)
1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon
1 tsp (5 ml) orange zest
¾ cup (110 g) of raisins
1 ¼ cup warm water (between 110-125F or 43-51C)
3 tbsp (45 ml) melted butter + 1 tbsp (15 ml) for greasing

2 tbsp (23 g) brown sugar
2 tbsp (25 g) white sugar
1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon
2 tsp (5 ml) orange zest
½ cup (75 g) chopped pecans
4 tbsp (60 g) softened butter

¼ cup (60 ml) whipped cream cheese
1 tbsp (7 g) powdered sugar
½ tsp (2.5 ml) vanilla extract
1 tbsp (15 ml) milk

*Double Glaze recipe to have extra to serve on the side

Combine flour, yeast, sugar, salt, cinnamon, orange zest, raisins. Then add water and melted butter and slowly mix into a dough, and then into a ball. Then knead on a floured surface for 20 turns.

Place other 1 tbsp (15 ml) of butter in a clean bowl, and grease the sides of the bowl with it. Place dough inside and cover with plastic wrap. Set in a warm place overnight.

Then have the filling ingredients below measured out and standing by on your counter and take out the 4 tbsp (60 g) of butter to allow to get to room temperature as well. This will make for easy assembly in the morning!

To make the filling. Combine sugars and cinnamon, orange zest and pecans.

Remove the dough from the bowl and place on well-floured surface; roll out to a 18” x 14” (45cm x 35cm) rectangle. Smear with softened butter, then sprinkle with filling.

Roll up, like a jelly roll, from the long side. Slice into 2” (5cm) slices. Fit, cut side up, into a cast-iron skillet or pie plate or baking dish.

Bake at 350 for 40-45 mins until golden brown and puffed up.

Meanwhile whisk together the glaze. In a small bowl combine the cream cheese and sugar whisk until smooth. Then add vanilla and milk whisk until smooth.

Ladle frosting over warm cinnamon buns! And serve!

  1. Instead of the (optional) milk in the glaze, a few teaspoons of fresh juice from the orange you previously zested works AMAZINGLY in this recipe. It keeps with the fresh, not overly sweet theme she’s got going on here.

  2. I would like a milder taste rolled buns for kids to pack to school eg butter roll buns. What ingredients could u recommend to work out a nice buttery filling?

  3. I really sucks at making anything dough, but I think im going to try this recipe for our Canadian Thanksgiving. Thanks for another great recipe Beth

  4. I was trying to make these today and I got a little confused with the recipe. In the video it says to add 3 tbsp of brown sugar, but the recipe says to add 2 tbsp. I tried using 3 since that's what the video said to do but I wanted to let you know that the video and recipe are different.

  5. Beth, really enjoy your vlog!  Did you know that you should separate your salt from your yeast, as it retards the yeast?  This even applies to doughs that rise overnight!  Keep those French recipes coming, especially your husbands families!

  6. Beth can you show us how to make kid friendly chicken recipes. I have a 4 year old and she's getting tired of grilled chicken & broccoli a couple of times a week lol. She's so picky I don't know how to make things interesting!

  7. I'm originally from a part of my country where cinnamon buns are like a regional specialty and I literally couldn't be happier about this video!

    Quick question on the side: Is there any chance the party menu's are going to come back for the holidays? I would absolutely love to see some kosher ideas to switch up a traditional Hanukkah meal or a Yule menu.

  8. How can people dislike her videos she is such a great baker/cook. She describes the recipes very well. Keep up the good word Beth❤

  9. Try to make the glaze with equal parts of cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk (only those 2 ingredients) and then tell me what you think about that!

  10. Hi Beth
    You have another great recipe and I have to try it of course
    But like always I have a question for you
    What can I replace the whipped cream cheese with?

  11. hi beth i just come across your channel and am in love with it,your pastries is driving me crazy my husband love cakes ,bun bulla just about anything in pastry so am going to make him very happy with trying out some of your my first one to try is the cinnamon bun ,and you are fun to watch you could teach me well. thank you ,

  12. Hello, Beth. I made the dough last night, and I baked the rolls this morning. I omitted the orange zest because I don't like it, and I omitted the nuts because my son does not like nuts. All things considered, the cinnamon rolls came out pretty good. Thank you for the recipe.

  13. Thank you for including grams and mililiters. Much handier for us europeans 😉 Love your dress by the way…
