Best Cinnamon Buns | Little Luna

I love the warm foods that most people associate with the holidays. In our house, there are two things my mom makes that we crave and beg for once the weather turns cold – cinnamon buns and homemade doughnuts. Well, I’m happy to report to my friends that I have tutorials and recipes for both methods, but you’re going to have to wait another week to get your doughnuts. Today, I’m sharing our favorite cinnamon bun recipe.

The recipe came from a family friend at church that my mom has been using for years! This is the most delicious and sticky cinnamon bun I’ve ever had and I know you’ll love it as much as we do!

Spraying the dough with a little water helps the cinnamon/sugar mixture stick better

sprinkle over cinnamon/sugar mixture – spread evenly over dough

Place bread seam-side down in a greased pan

FYI, it takes 17 cups of flour, which means it makes a lot of flour – 5 loaves! ! However, if this is too much for you, you can halve the recipe or freeze the excess. Whenever we make this, 5 loaves is never enough because everyone loves it! ! Trust me – if you take it to a neighbor or friend, they will love you forever. 🙂

This is truly the best cinnamon bun recipe ever, I think you’ll agree. My kids eat these like candy (actually!) Not sure about you, but you know it’s a hit when it’s sticky and lasts a long time without drying out.

Let me know what you think about it!
