I really love cinnamon!
These buns are soft wholemeal buns, with a slight cinnamon scent. Best of all, it’s an easy and straightforward dough method.

This is from a recipe that I have tried a few years back. I like that it is easy to make, with ingredients commonly available in the pantry. And the bread is quite soft too!
I originally made the buns with some stencil pattern on it, which was inspired from Victoria Bakes. This time, I just baked them in my muffin pans. Quick and easy!

Which Type of Wholemeal Flour?
Over here, I used Prima’s superfine wholegrain flour to substitute a little of the bread flour. I usually substitute about 20-30g of bread flour with plain flour, for a softer bread. If you don’t have any wholemeal flour, simply use 250g of bread flour.
I find Prima’s superfine wholegrain flour very soft and fine, which doesn’t really make much difference to the texture. If you are using other types of wholemeal flour, check that the flour is not too coarse, which will affect the texture of the bakes.
Cinnamon Wholemeal Buns 全麦肉桂面包
- 220 g bread flour
- 30 g wholemeal flour
- 2 g salt
- 22 g sugar
- 1 g cinnamon powder
- 2 g instant yeast
- 100 g cold milk
- 70 g cold water
- 15 g chilled butter
- Combine all ingredients in the bread pan. Select Bread Dough mode (Panasonic SD-P104 Mode 9: kneading + first proof). If you do not have a bread machine, simply mix all ingredients except butter together. When it's mixed to a smooth dough, add in butter and knead till window pane stage. Let proof till double in size, usually about 45-60 mins.
- Divide dough into 8 portions. Roll into rounds and rest for 10 mins.
- Take the dough and punch out air. You can also add in fillings at this stage, eg dark or milk chocolate chips, or jam. Roll into rounds again. Place into muffin pan. Cover lightly with cling wrap or clean damp towel. Proof again until the dough double in size (about 45-60 min).
- Bake in preheated oven at 170C for 15-20mins. Remove from oven once baked and cool on wire rack completely.
I find that they make pretty good sandwich buns – you can wrap the bread dough with some jam inside and bake them; or you can cut the buns and spread some butter and jam. If you’d like to use savory fillings like ham or tuna, you can omit the cinnamon powder in the recipe.
