A tiny warning in advance!
The following recipe could lead to an incurable addiction:
Wild Apple-Cinnamon Buns
It was time for a treat that always cuts a good figure for breakfast, a snack or while teaming up with cup of coffee (and at the same time also makes us look good ourselves).
We are always going wild here on #brotokoll – and we make no exception with cinnamon buns. And so also in this recipe we don’t use any commercial yeast but bake us through this sweet adventure with our wild yeastwater instead (HERE you will find everything you need to know about it).
The extended dough rest in the fridge provides an awesome flavor and Tangzhong is responsible for extra fluffiness.
Same as in the recipes Blondy (the Easter Challah, leavened with Italian Pasta Madre) and Everybody’s Darling (wild yeastwater brioche), we rely once again on the award-winning brioche and croissant flour T55 Gruau Extra from Moulins Bourgeois (available at bongu.de *) – Flour Power from France.
But they shouldn’t just be “cinnamon buns.” So just imagine the well known saying in an adapted way, which disclosed the recipe’s secret: “The apple doesn’t fall far from the…bun”. Hence we will “applefy” our cinnamon buns.
Apfel. Walnuts. Caramel. Sea salt. Cinnamon.
That might sounds like the dessert entry in the menu of a starred restaurant – and will soon land on your table! The fluffy cinnamon rolls (buns) are filled with apples fried in olive oil, caramelized walnuts with a pinch of sea salt and of course cinnamon.
Cinnamon bun attack!
Shout it out loud and get your wild yeast ready for baking!
