Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns

The scrumptious flavors and colors of autumn! I’m enjoying every minute of it! If you like everything pumpkin spice, you will most likely love these pumpkin spice cinnamon buns as much as we did!

Super simple recipe, it’s really just a cinnamon bun dough with a pumpkin spice filling that includes pumpkin puree. So delicious!

Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns

For the dough:

  • 500 g spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp quick instant yeast
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 150 g butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 300 ml milk

For the filling:

  • 150 g coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin spice
  • 250 g pumpkin puree

-Line the bottom of a 28 cm Springform pan with parchment paper, you can also use a different baking form or sheet.

-In a large bowl, mix the flour, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan melt the butter with the milk and maple syrup and the mix is warm to the touch. Add to the flour and stir well. On a lightly floured surface knead the dough for about 3 minutes. Place back in a lightly greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a clean dish towel. Let rise until doubled in size.

-In a small bowl combine coconut sugar, pumpkin puree, cinnamon and pumpkin spice.

-On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out in a rectangle. Spread the filling evenly all over the dough. Roll up the dough to form a log. Cut into 8 -10 even rolls and arrange in the prepared baking form. Cover again and let rise until doubled in size.

-Preheat oven to 375 F.

-Place a few small pieces of butter evenly over each bun. Bake for about 40 minutes or until golden brown.

-Spread maple butter evenly over the still hot buns. Let cool completely or eat while they are still warm.

Enjoy!
