  • Step 2Combine the milk and butter then heat the mixture, either in a microwave or in a pan until lukewarm. Then stir the yeast into the milk and butter mix before finally whisking the eggs into the mix.
  • Step 3In a separate bowl, combine the dry dough ingredients.
  • Step 4Next, pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix together until a dough has formed. If using an electric mixing machine, knead the dough mixture for approx. 5-10 minutes. Then turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a further minute by hand and form a ball. If you are doing this by hand, turn out the dough mixture straight onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 5-10 minutes.
  • Step 5Transfer your dough into a lightly greased bowl and cover. Leave to prove in a warm place for 1-2 hours until it has doubled in size.
  • Step 6In the meantime, combine the Muscovado sugar, caster sugar, light brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Step 7In a separate bowl, melt the 50g of butter.
  • Step 8When the dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto a work surface and roll into a rectangle shape approx. ½ to 1 cm thick, with the longest edge parallel to the edge of your worksurface.
  • Step 9Time to create your cinnamon rolls. First, spread the butter evenly over the rolled-out dough. Next, sprinkle the combined dry filling ingredients evenly over the dough.
  • Step 10Roll up the dough lengthways until a log shape is formed.
  • Step 11Next, using a sharp knife, cut the log into 12 evenly sized pieces. Lay out the 3 pieces of baking paper on your work surface, and place 4 of the cinnamon buns onto each piece of paper. Cover and leave the rolls for 20-30 minutes to prove slightly.
  • Step 12In the meantime, to make the icing, whisk together the cream cheese and water in a bowl. Gradually whisk in the icing sugar until all the sugar has been incorporated.
  • Step 13Time to cook. Select the bake setting on your Russell Hobbs SatisFry Air Fryer, changing the temperature to 185C with 15 minutes on the clock. Allow your Air Fryer to preheat.

  • Step 14Once you hear the beep to signal the preheat is complete, carefully lift one of the pieces of baking paper into the Air Fryer and allow them to cook for the 15-minute bake cycle. Repeat this step with the remaining cinnamon buns.
  • Step 15Finally, to serve, slather each bun generously with the icing glaze and allow it to set. Delish!
