DIY Cinnabuns :: Thermomix Recipe
makes: 12



240 grams milk
65 grams Butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
650 grams bakers flour
100 grams sugar
30 grams - active fresh yeast (or 10 grams - dry yeast)


250 grams brown sugar
65 grams softened butter
2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon


250 grams raw sugar
55 grams Butter
125 grams cream cheese
1 centimetre vanilla bean (or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract)
1/8 teaspoon salt



  • Weigh milk and butter into TM mixing bowl. Heat on 50 degrees C for 3 min on speed 1
  • Add remaining dough ingredients in order given. Process 3-5 seconds on speed 7 to make a rough dough.  Then Knead 2 minutes on dough mode.
  • Turn dough out into a bowl and let prove for 1 hour or until doubled.
  • Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 35 x 50 cm rectangle. Let rest while preparing filling.


  • Weigh the filling ingredients into the TM bowl and mix 10 sec on speed 4 until creamy
  • Evenly spread the pre-blended filling on the dough
  • Roll dough lengthwise (the long side) and cut into 12 rolls
  • Place rolls in a lightly greased 23 x 33 cm baking tin lined with baking paper
  • Cover an let rise for 30 minutes
  • preheat your oven to 200 degrees C
  • Bake in a preheated oven for approx 15-20 minutes, or until golden.  While baking, prepare the icing


  • Mill sugar together with vanilla bean into icing sugar 20 seconds on speed 9. (substitute 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract after milling sugar if you don't have vanilla bean)
  • Add butter, cream cheese and salt. Heat on 37 degrees for 2 minutes on speed 2
  • Spread icing on rolls while still hot out of the oven

Optional :: Make-ahead Method

Instead of the final "cover and let rise 30 minutes", after you have placed your Cinnabuns in the baking tin, cover and refrigerate overnight.
Put them straight from the fridge into the pre-heated oven and enjoy them fresh-baked the next morning.

Wondering what a Thermomix is?! - check it at

They are BIG in Europe... they heat, they grind, they mix, they steam, they knead bread... they basically make your dinner (ok, not quite)! We love ours... but it is definitely an investment - but worth it when you consider feeding a family of 3 boys over the next 15-20 years!

We bought ours in Poland, but they are available in Canada/the USA (they're just way less popular).
