Cinnamon Cayenne Buns with Frank’s® RedHot® Original
Cayenne Pepper Sauce Cream Cheese Frosting
Finally, the cinnamon bun for which the hot sauce lover has been waiting. I took a traditional cinnamon recipe, spiked it with cayenne pepper, and then made a decadent Frank’s® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce cream cheese frosting. It is as equally at home at breakfast as it is at dessert. Or as a midday snack!
Makes 9 buns
- 1⁄2 cup butter, cubed
- 1 1⁄4 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1⁄2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup butter, at room temperature
- 1 1⁄4 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- 6 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 1⁄2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1 teaspoon Frank’s® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
TO MAKE THE DOUGH
1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Allow to cool 5 minutes. Return to the heat and whisk in the milk. Milk burns easily, so be careful not to overheat it and burn it. Simmer until it reaches 100°F. Pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle with the yeast and sugar. Allow to sit 5 minutes.
2. Using an electric mixer with a dough hook, combine the dissolved yeast and the butter mixture on low. Slowly add the brown sugar, then the egg. Add the salt and 2 cups of flour on low, mixing until well incorporated. Slowly mix in the remaining 2 cups of flour. The mixture should become a slightly sticky but uniform dough at this time.
3. Scrape out the dough onto a floured countertop. Knead the dough until it doesn’t stick to your hands, adding small amounts of flour (up to 1⁄2 cup) as needed. Place in a large greased bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise for about 45 minutes or until it doubles in size.
4. Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a floured counter. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out in a 12 by 24-inch rectangle. The dough should be about 1 inch thick.
TO MAKE THE FILLING
1. In a small bowl, whisk the butter until smooth and fluffy. Using an icing spatula, spread the whipped butter over the dough. In small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, cinnamon, and cayenne for the filling. Sprinkle evenly over the buttered dough. Roll the dough into a tight log. Cut into 1-inch-thick slices. Place in 2 ungreased 9-inch round cake pans, forming a circle with one roll in the middle. Allow to rise about 1⁄2 hour, until they are about level with the top of the cake pan.
2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
3. Bake the rolls for 15–20 minutes, until fully cooked. Remove to a wire rack and cool 5 minutes in the pan, then invert onto a plate.
4. Whisk together the icing ingredients until smooth. Spread on slightly warm buns. Serve immediately.
