Here's how easy it is...
  1. Crack the egg into a small bowl and add the Carnation Evaporated Milk, whisk together with a fork. Pour the bread mix and raisins into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Slowly add the egg mixture whilst stirring with a fork. When the mixture becomes too stiff to stir, use your hands to bring it together into a soft dough. Tip onto a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  2. The next part of our cinnamon bun recipe is easy – just sit back and relax!

    Place the dough back into the bowl and cover with cling film, leave in a warm spot to prove for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C with fan) Gas mark 6. Mix the cinnamon, all spice and 70g Carnation Squeezy Condensed Milk together into a smooth paste. Tip the proved dough onto a floured surface and roll into a large rectangle about 1cm thick. Spread the spice paste evenly over the dough and then roll-up tightly into a log.
  4. Cut the log into 12 slices and then place into a lined baking tray with the swirls facing up. Leave the buns to rest for 20 minutes before placing in the middle of the pre-heated oven for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the remaining Carnation Squeezy Condensed milk whilst still warm.
  5. And that’s our easy cinnamon bun recipe. They taste so good they won’t hang around for long!

    Made these as something different for a bake sale at work. They were really easy to make and tasted great good enough for me to even save one for my boss! Just didn't need to cook them for quite as long as I toasted them slightly but they were still good.

    Hello Lucy, great to hear that your Cinnamon Buns were such a success. Different ovens will bake at slightly different temperatures so it's always worth keeping an eye on your treats to make sure they come out perfectly every time!
