Cinnamon buns (Ayurvedic)

Cinnamon buns (Ayurvedic)

I always wanted to try these famous buns and now the right moment finally came. No regrets for waiting so long by the way :)

For dough: makes about 1 kg (so you can now use just 1/2 of it and the other half place in the fridge for few days to make another baked goods using the same dough)

600 gr flour
3 tbsp brown sugar + (for sprinkling the dough)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp nutmeg
150 g butter + (for brushing the dough with it)
250 gr sour cream + (200 gr for cream mixture)
cinnamon
maple (actually these ones are made with agave syrup which was quite good as well). 

+ you can also add some walnuts and raisins

Process: 

Mix flour with baking powder, sugar and nutmeg. Melt butter and mix it with sour cream till texture is foamy. Then add these 2 parts together and mash by hands till dough gets light, soft and airy. Let it rest for few minutes.
Cream: 
Meanwhile mix sour cream with brown sugar and carob powder)- you will need this for later. 
Then roll it on kitchen surface and brush with butter and sprinkle well with cinnamon and brown sugar. (to get these buns softer I would recommend to brush with cream.  When you are done with stuffing, roll the dough well and but in 3-4 cm wide pieces. place on baking tray and try to widen the edges a bit (so syrup and cream covers the bun), then pour with syrup. 
Bake in 200* for about 20 min. When ready pour cream on the top and let these beauties cool down a bit.  Enjoy! :)
