Homemade Honey Buns

Are you ready to celebrate February? As months go, February is often disrespected and underappreciated, which is why we’ve decided to declare it Buzz Savories Honey Month! Wholesome for your body, sweet on the tongue and honey, of course, is a harbinger of spring.

We’re kicking off Buzz Savories Honey Month with Homemade Honey Buns. These soft, sweet treats will be a universal hit and the process of making them is almost as much fun as eating them. 

The dough is made with warm milk, active dry yeast honey, eggs and melted butter, that, as it rises, permeates the kitchen with the inviting aroma of honey. This is an easy recipe for a novice baker, with three classic steps: creating the dough, adding the filling and rolling the dough, and, if you wish, finishing it with a glaze. It’s not something I always do. Your choice.

Homemade Honey Buns

Recently, due to commitments on my time, I made the dough one day, then covered it tightly and placed it in the refrigerator overnight. The following day I set the bowl in a toasty, warm corner of my kitchen and within two hours it had warmed to room temperature and risen so that I could see the indent of my finger when pressed into the dough. Let’s just say refrigeration overnight is not required for Honey Bun dough but does it no harm.

Then the fun begins! Roll out the dough with a rolling pin or empty wine bottle, spread the filling over the dough, roll the dough up into a tube shape and cut 12 equal slices. Bake 20 or 25 minutes and you’re ready to serve a warm and tasty treat to celebrate the Valentine Month with family and friends.

What You'll Need:

Dough

  • 1 cup warm whole milk warm the milk to temperature of your fingers
  • 2 ¼ tsp yeast (1 package)
  • cup Buzz Savories artisanal honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup unsalted butter melted
  • 4 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt

Filling

  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup Buzz Savories artisanal honey
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • cup unsalted butter, melted

Glaze

  • 3 Tbs. Buzz Savories artisanal honey
  • 2 tsp. water (as needed to spread the powdered sugar and honey mixture)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

How To Prepare:

Dough

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm milk, yeast and honey. Let sit for 5 minutes until the mixture forms bubbles on top indicating the yeast is working.
  • Add the eggs and melted butter and stir until well mixed.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until well mixed then knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a towel and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
    At this juncture in the recipe, you may choose to refrigerate the dough after the mixing and kneading process. Cover tightly and refrigerate for 24 hours if desired. Take out of the refrigerator and allow the dough to return to room temperature and double in size - approximately 2 hours.

Filling

  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. and grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.
  • In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and honey. Mix.
  • Roll the dough out into a large rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with melted butter over the dough.
  • With the flat side of a knife or spatula spread the filling over the dough.
  • Roll the dough tightly, starting from the long side and cut into 12 equal slices.
  • Place the buns in the prepared baking pan and let them rise for another 20 minutes.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Glaze

  • In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, honey and water to make the glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the warm buns.
  • Serve warm accompanied with drink of choice or dessert served with fruit. These buns are best served warm and fresh, but they can also be stored in an airtight container for 2 days.
