Misa's Famous Cinnamon Buns
  • 2 packets (4½ tsp.) dry yeast
  • ½ cup warm water (90 to 110 degrees)
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 4½ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup margarine, melted and cooled
  • ¾ cup soy milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup margarine, melted or oil
  • 1¼ cups brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs. cinnamon
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3-5 Tbs. water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  1. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, add in the dry yeast, warm water, and sugar. Let stand for 5-10 minutes until foamy and bubbly. If it doesn't "proof" then discard and start over (the yeast is dead)
  2. Once the yeast is alive, add in 4 cups of flour, the melted and cooled margarine, soy milk, sugar, eggs, salt, and vanilla.
  3. Mix on low speed until the dough comes together. You may need to add more flour to form a dough that is not too sticky.
  4. Once the dough comes together form the dough into a ball, rub oil all over and place in a clean oiled bowl. Cover with a clean towel and allow to rise in a warm place for about an hour.
  5. Once your dough doubles in size, divide it in half and work with one piece at a time.
  1. Roll out half the dough into a rectangle shape. Spread half the filling on the dough. Start with the melted margarine or oil, then sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mixture on top.
  2. Roll the dough up into a long log.
  3. Slice the log into 8 slices and arrange cut side up into a greased round pan or tin.
  4. Repeat the filling process with the rest of the dough.
  5. Cover each pan with a clean towel and allow to rise in the pan for 45 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Once the buns have doubled in size, bake for 25-30 minutes until really light and golden brown.
  1. While the buns are cooling, mix the icing ingredients together. Add the water slowly until you get a thick white icing.
  2. Spread the icing on the cooled buns and enjoy!
