How to make it

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Warm the milk in saucepan until edges bubble; remove from heat.
  • Mix in 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup butter and salt; stir until melted.
  • Cool to lukewarm.
  • In large bowl combine the yeast mixture, milk mixture, eggs and 1 1/2 cups flour; stir well to combine.
  • Stir in remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time, beating after each addition.
  • When dough pulls together turn it onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
  • Lightly oil a large bowl.
  • Place dough in bowl and turn to coat.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • While dough is rising, melt 3/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir in 3/4 cup brown sugar, whisking until smooth.
  • Pour into greased 9x13" baking pan.

  • Turn dough out onto lightly floured board and roll to an 18x14" rectangle.
  • Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
  • Leaving 1/2" border uncovered, sprinkle with brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  • Starting at the long side, roll up (not too tightly!), pinching seam to seal.
  • Brush with remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  • With a serrated knife, cut dough into 15 pieces and place cut-side down in prepared pan.
  • Cover and let rise until doubles in volume, about 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Bake buns for 25 to 30 minutes OR until golden brown.
