**If using unsalted butter then add 1/4 teaspoon salt.
1cupbrown sugar (lightly packed)(200 grams)
1-2teaspoonscinnamon (if desired)
1/3cupbutter softened(70 grams)
1/2cuppowdered / icing sugar(60 grams)
1/2 -1 tablespooncream or milk
Pre- heat oven to 350 degrees (180 degrees). Lightly grease and flour an 8 inch pan (pie, cake or even a 12 medium size muffin tin) I used a pie plate.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt, then cut in the cold butter* until it resembles coarse crumbs, then add the milk and mix with the fork until the mixture becomes a soft dough, turn it onto a lightly floured surface and knead just until dough is thoroughly combined.
Roll dough out to rectangle that is 1/8 inch thick.
*I like to place the butter in the freezer 20 minutes before using, then grate it with a large hole grater, that way it is much easier to combine to make coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon (if using).
Spread with butter and sprinkle with brown sugar / cinnamon mixture, pat down lightly. Starting with long end roll into a log, cut into 12-13 pieces, place the slices cut side up in the prepared baking dish (pie, cake or muffin). Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes (or until golden). Let cool before drizzling with glaze. Enjoy!
In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, vanilla and maple syrup if it is too thick add 1/2 tablespoon of the cream or milk, mix until smooth. Pour over cooled cinnamon buns.
