3. Combine the sugar, butter, eggs and salt, then mix in the flour.
4. Mix well to form a dough.
5. Place the dough on a lightly floured board and knead it until it is smooth.
6. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and roll the dough around it to grease it all over.
7. Cover the bowl, let the dough rise in a warm place free from draughts for about one hour or until dough has nearly doubled in size.
8. Punch down, and roll the dough on a clean surface lightly dusted with flour. Roll the dough out to a rectangle shape until it is approximately 21 inches long and 16 inches wide by 1/4" thick. If the dough begins to resist stop working it and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
9. To make the filling, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spread the softened butter evenly over the surface of the dough, and then spread evenly with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
10. Starting from the long side, begin rolling the dough down to the bottom edge, jelly roll style. Cut the rolled dough into 1 3/4" slices and place into a lightly greased baking pan, allowing about 1 inches space between each.
11. Put the rolls into a warm place and allow to rise again until nearly double in size (approximately 30 minutes). Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
12. While the rolls are baking, mix the ingredients for icing. Beat well with an electric beater, or a hand whisk, until light and fluffy.
13. When the rolls are done, drizzle generously with the icing while still warm.
Cooking is fun. Baking cakes and buns can be an educational activity for children, involving measuring, following instructions, decision making and socialising / working with other people. For the best experience make sure you have the ingredients and cooking equipment to hand before you begin baking. These recipes have all been tried and tested, and should work. No specialist cooking equipment is needed - the average kitchen will contain all the ingredients and equipment you need to have fun, and bake great cakes and buns.
