DIRECTIONS – CINNAMON BUNS:
1.) In a microwave safe measuring cup, heat the milk for 30 seconds at a time till warmed throughout but not boiling. Add the milk to the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the yeast and the sugar, stir lightly and let sit for 10 minutes until frothy.
2.) Whisk in the eggs one at a time until incorporated before adding the next. Then add in the baby food and whisk to combine.
3.) Add the flour and salt to the bowl and using the dough hook, mix on low, moving up to medium speed for 2 minutes. Add in the softened butter and continue to mix for 4 more minutes. You may have to scrape down the sides of the bowl half way through. If the dough is very sticky, add up to 1/2 cup flour in small increments. The finished dough will be slightly sticky, that’s ok!
4.) Place the bowl in a warm spot covered with a tea towel to rise for 2 hours.
5.) When the dough has doubled in size, knead the dough on a floured surface until no longer sticky. Then, roll it out into approximately an 18” x 22” rectangle.
