Cinnamon Rolls #2
When baking bread, and it is ready to mould in the pans, take out dough the size of a medium-sized loaf; mix into it 1 cup of sugar, butter the size of an egg; add more flour and knead smooth; then roll down to about 1 inch thick, spread , over with butter, sugar and cinnamon; then make into a roll, slice in cakes about one inch thick, and place them in a baking pan close together; let rise very light; again spread over with butter, sugar and cinnamon. Bake quickly as light buns.
