These cinnamon buns are gooey and delicious, filled with dark chocolate chips and covered in a maple syrup icing. 

This recipe is perfect for your weekend baking, and is sure to be a hit with the family. Best served straight out of the oven while the buns are still warm and gooey inside. 

You can easily make these vegan by using almond or soy milk, and substituting the butter for a vegan butter or margarine instead.

For the Buns
  1. 1 cup of milk
  2. 1/4 cup of butter (for the dough)
  3. 2 1/2 tsp of yeast
  4. 1 Tbsp of brown sugar
  5. 1/4 tsp of table salt
  6. 3 cups of standard flour
  7. 2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  8. 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
  9. 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  10. 1/4 cup of butter, melted (for glazing)
For the Icing
  1. 1 cup of icing or powdered sugar
  2. 3 Tbsp of boiling water
  3. 2 Tbsp of maple syrup
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup of butter with a cup of milk
  2. Place in the microwave and gently melt the mixture, stirring every 30 seconds or so until combined (be careful not to boil)
  3. Pour the melted butter and milk into a large bowl, and add the yeast in to the warm mixture (if the butter is too hot to touch, allow to cool slightly before adding the yeast)
  4. Allow to stand for around 10 - 15 minutes, then add 1 Tbsp of brown sugar and the salt
  5. Sift the flour gradually in to the yeast mixture, stirring well as you sift in the flour
  6. Once all of the flour has been added, place the dough onto a floured chopping board and knead for a couple of minutes until a ball is formed
  7. Place the dough into a large bowl lightly greased with butter, and cover
  8. Leave the dough for around 45 minutes to an hour, until the dough has approximately doubled in sized
  9. Once the dough has risen, roll out onto a large board that has been lightly floured
  10. Keep rolling out until you get a relatively thin rectangle shape
  11. Brush with the melted butter, and sprinkle over the cinnamon, dark chocolate chips and brown sugar
  12. Roll the dough up tightly, then slice into 10 sections
  13. Lightly grease an 8 inch square pan with butter, then place the sections in the pan facing upwards
  14. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celsius (or 360 degrees fahrenheit), and allow the buns to sit in the pan for around 10 minutes to rise again before placing in the oven
  15. Bake for around 25 minutes, or until golden
  16. To make the icing, combine the powdered sugar, boiling water and maple syrup in a small bowl
  17. Stir well with a spoon until you have a smooth and runny consistency
  18. Pour over the cinnamon buns, and serve while still warm and gooey
