We had a hard time deciding which section to place this recipe in. It sounds like the taste off the old cinnamon buns, and should be place next to cakes, but my friend insists on serving it as a side. Besides, who has enough discipline to wait until dessert to taste these.
2 cups all-purpose flour (add more if necessary)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine
1/2 cup water
4 apples, shredded
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) margarine
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, margarine and water in a large bowl.
Mix well. Add additional flour gradually if dough is too moist and hard to work with.
To make filling, combine shredded apples, sugar and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Set aside.
To assemble and bake:
Roll dough into 11x17-inch rectangle. Spread the apple mixture evenly over the dough. Roll the dough, from the long end, jelly roll style. Slice the roll into 1-inch slides. Place the apple buns close together into two (9-inch round) glass baking dishes.
Prepare the syrup. Combine water, sugar, brown sugar, margarine and cinnamon in a small pot. Stir over low heat until all ingredients are melted. Pour syrup over apple buns.
Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Bake 1 hour. Serve warm.
Make 12 buns.
