Bread maker Cinnamon Buns

Created by adapted from Food.com
The bun mixture is made in the bread maker on the dough setting so its easy to put the ingredients in the bread maker and get on with other jobs while these ingredients mix together. These are definitely very cinnamon flavoured buns so you can always add a little less cinnamon if you prefer. You could also add some drained stewed apples to the filling or dried fruit for some variations. The glaze is an optional extra you can add after baking.
