Cinnamon Bun - Holiday Ginger Swirl

Cinnamon Bun - Christmas Ginger Swirl


This festive and delicious ginger glazed bun is the essence of the holiday season. Just imagine a hot chocolate, tea or coffee, a piece of this bun, and friends. It's a happy vision.

Packed full of holiday favors, it will fill your home with warm and inviting aromas. Ginger, cinnamon, molasses, and dried fruit in a Ginger Honey glazed yeast dough make this a family classic.


Makes 6 large buns.

Prep time 2 hours

Cooking time 40 minutes


For the dough
4 cups Bread Flour
2 cups water
1 TSP Sea Salt
1 packet Active Dry Yeast
1 TBSP Vegetable Oil
1/4 cup chopped Verdant Kitchen Bare Ginger
1 TSP ground Cinnamon
1 TBSP Molasses
8 oz Mixed Peel

For fruit swirl
1 cup mixed chopped dried fruit of your choice. I used dried figs, raisins, currents, dried strawberries, and cranberries 
1/4 cup chopped Verdant Kitchen Bare Ginger

For the Glaze
1 TBSP Verdant Kitchen Ginger Infused Honey in 1 TBSP hot water



✅Mix together the dough ingredients and knead by hand or machine until smooth and elastic (10-15 min)
✅Place in a bowl and allow to rise in a warm draft-free place for 1 hour
✅Roll out to 1/2 thick rectangle and cover with Fruit Swirl dried fruit
✅Roll up the dough and then cut into 6 x 2 inch (approx) pieces
✅Arrange cut side up to show the swirls in a parchment lined round baking tray (I used one that held 4 of the pieces and cooked two separately as individual buns on a flat baking tray)

✅Bake at 400F for 25 minutes, remove and brush with the Glaze. 
✅Return to the oven and bake an addition 5-10 minutes until golden brown
✅Remove from the oven and place on a wire cooling rack ready to enjoy
