This recipe is ridiculously simple, and if you have a mixer with a dough hook then your laughing!

This doesn’t even require you to warm milk to certain temperature to activate the yeast, just bung it all in stir and kneed. 2 1 hour proves whilst you get on with your day and you’re done.

I can not begin to explain how satisfying it feels to bake your bread goods, and then to savour them whilst warm with a cup of coffee all by yourself, is such an indulgence.
I used very strong 00 Canadian bread flour which makes them extra fluffy, but I have used regular 00 bread flour and they are just as good.

I recommend baking no more than 20 minutes, about 17 is perfect. This ensures they are tender and fluffy.

If you want to make regular Cinnamon Buns please swap the pumpkin spice for just cinnamon or make my Chelsea Bun version.

Combine all the dough ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer if using. Combine with a wooden spoon to form a sticky dough.

With the dough attached knead the dough for about 10mins, until it firms up and if you take a small lump and lightly stretch it, you should see the light through the dough. Alternatively kneed by hand.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly dusted surface and shape into a ball, place in a lightly dusted bowl and cover with cling film or tea towel and set aside some where warm for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

In the meantime, combine all the butter and spice mix for the filling and Set aside.

Line a baking tray with parchment, or you can lightly grease baking dish.

Once the dough is ready remove from the bowl and place on a lightly dusted surface, roll into a large rectangle shape about 1cm thick.

Spread the filling evenly over the dough and sprinkle evenly with the sugar.

Cut the dough into 8 as even as possible strips, width ways. Then roll up strip tightly, this prevents the filling from spilling out.

Place into your prepared dish leaving space between each roll for expansion.

Cover in cling film or a clean kitchen towel and allow to prove again for another hour somewhere warm.

With 15minutes left of proving pre heat the oven to 180°C.

Once they have had their final prove, place into the pre heated oven for about 15-20minutes, until golden and fluffy. Do not over bake, you want them as light and tender as possible.
