Cinnamon Buns (My Mom's Recipe)

This recipe yields 100 small cinnamon buns or approx 6 dozen medium/large sized cinnamon buns (like in the picture). I cut this recipe in half and accidentally made them bigger than I intended, but they still turned out really well. This recipe would also work well for doughnuts.

Cinnamon Buns

3 Tbsp yeast

1 cup warm water

1 tsp sugar

Mix yeast, warm water, and sugar together and let stand 10 minutes.

4 cups scalded milk

2 cups mashed potatoes

1 cup butter (or margarine)

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs, beaten

1 Tbsp salt

16-18 cups flour

Mix milk, potatoes, butter, and sugar. Add yeast mixture and stir. Add 6 cups of flour and mix well. Let stand until foamy, about 20 minutes. Add the eggs and salt. Add 10-12 cups more flour, enough to make a soft dough. Knead for 10 minutes. Place in 2 large bowls. Cover and let rise until double. Divide into 6 sections about half an inch thick. Roll out each into a rectangle. Spread butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon on each rectangle. Roll up and cut into 1 inch wide rolls. Put into prepared pans, which have been greased well and covered with melted butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and corn syrup (corn syrup is optional). Let rise until doubled. Bake in 400 F oven for 16 – 20 minutes. Yields 100 cinnamon buns.
