  • Baking Pan 9 x 13


  • Dough
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk lukewarm
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Raisin Filling
  • ½ cup softened butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • Apple Filling
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 600 grams or 1 can apple pie filling chopped
  • Cream Cheese Glaze
  • ½ cup cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 tbsp room temperature butter
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp sugar


  • Prepare the Dough
  • Firstly, put the flour & sugar in an electric stand mixer bowl (with dough hood attachment). Mix it for 5-10 seconds.
  • In a large bowl, prepare the wet mix by combining the lukewarm milk, beaten egg, melted butter, yeast, & salt.
  • Set the mixer on low while pouring the liquid mix into the mixer bowl. Once the wet mix starts coming together with the flour & sugar, set the mixer on high and combine for 2 minutes to get a soft, sticky dough.
  • Grease a large bowl with oil, place the dough in it, cover with a plastic wrap, and keep in a warm spot for 1½ to 2 hours until it doubles in size.
  • Place the risen dough on a flour-dusted counter-top. Knead for 2-3 minutes and then roll out into a rectangular shape (21*14 inches). Then, add the filling of your choice.
  • For raisin filling:
  • Spread the softened butter all over the rolled-out dough.
  • Mix the brown sugar & cinnamon. Sprinkle it on top of the butter to coat evenly.
  • Also, sprinkle the raisins and press lightly so that they stick in place.
  • For Apple Filling:
  • Brush the melted butter all over the rolled-out dough.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar & cinnamon mix.
  • Then, top with the apple pie filling evenly.
  • Now, roll it up tightly (length-wise) starting from one end. Then, cut into 12 equal parts.
  • Transfer the cinnamon buns into a butter-greased baking pan (9*13 inches). Cover the pan with a plastic wrap and keep aside for 30 minutes to rise. Meanwhile, preheat the oven at 350°F.
  • Remove the plastic cover, and transfer the tray into the preheated oven.
  • Bake the raisin-filled cinnamon buns for 20-25 minutes at 350°F.
  • Bake the apple-filled cinnamon buns for 30-35 minutes at 350°F.
  • Prepare the cream cheese glaze right before removing the buns from the oven. Beat the cream cheese along with the butter, milk, & vanilla extract into a creamy consistency. Add in the powdered sugar and beat again until nicely combined.
  • Right after removing the baked cinnamon buns from the oven, smother them with the cream cheese glaze. Enjoy!
