Cinnabon like Cinnamon Buns Experiment

My friend recently posted a picture on Facebook of some Cinnabon like Cinnamon Buns that she made from scratch at home. They looked amazing and anyone who has tasted them knows that they also taste delicious. So I badgered her for the recipe and she sent me the link to the YouTube video that she used. Now that had a number of things that I do not have handy, so I decided to substitute where I could and see what that would get me.

 I used two cheese spread boxes and regular ration butter, the salted variety, along with a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and regular granulated sugar to make the cream cheese frosting.

I mixed  it all up with my trusty hand blender. And then I put the mixed frosting into the fridge while I figured out what to do about the actual bun.

I warmed one cup of milk in the milk patila and then added two eggs to it to whisk. Also added 1\3 cup melted butter to it and 2 teaspoons of dry yeast along with 4 cups of maida (flour). Then I used the hand beater to mix them all together till it formed a rather sticky feeling dough.

 This dough was then covered with aluminum foil and left to rest for an hour.
Then I made a mixture of one cup of sugar, I used white regular while the original recipe called for brown, and two tablespoons of cinnamon powder.

 Once the dough rose I used a floured surface to roll it out as much as I could and added some softened butter to it. Then I sprinkled the sugar and cinnamon mixture on to it and folded it up like a roll. This was cut into one inch rolls and then placed on a greased baking pan and put into the oven to bake. The original recipe calls for 15 min at 200 degree Celsius, but you may need to tweak that as per your oven.

Once they are baked add the frosting we made earlier on the top and let it soak for a while. Serve warm.
