UBC Cinnamon Bun Recipe

YIELD: 18 Large Cinnamon Buns


3 cups (750mL) milk
6 tbsp (90mL) butter
6 tbsp (90mL) plus 1 tsp (5ml) granulated sugar
1 tbsp (15mL) salt
½ cup (125mL) warm water
2 envelopes active dry yeast
2 large eggs
9 cups (2.25L) all-purpose flour
¾ cup (175mL) melted butter
1¼ cups (300mL) granulated sugar
2 tbsp (30mL) cinnamon


Scald Milk. Stir in butter, 6 tbsp sugar and salt. Cool to lukewarm.
Dissolve remaining 1 tsp sugar in warm water. Sprinkle yeast over water mixture. Let stand in a warm place for 10 minutes. Stir.
In a large mixing bowl, combine lukewarm milk mixture with eggs. Stir in dissolved yeast mixture.
Add four to five cups of the flour and beat well for 10 minutes. With a wooden spoon, gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough.
Turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, adding additional flour as needed. This is a soft dough!
Place dough in a well-greased bowl and roll around to grease all sides of the dough. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about one hour.
Punch down dough and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half.
To fill, roll out each piece of dough into a 9 x 18-inch rectangle. Spread 1/4 cup of melted butter evenly onto each rectangle.
Combine sugar and cinnamon for filling. Sprinkle onto the rectangles. Roll dough up like a jelly roll, starting from the long side. Cut into 2-inch slices.
Place remaining ¼ cup of melted butter into the bottom of a 16½ x 11½ x 2½-inch pan. Arrange slices in the pan and cover loosely with greased wax paper.
Let rise in pan until doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Bake for 35-40 minutes.
Remove from oven and immediately invert onto a serving tray.

Nearly 65 years of UBC Alumni remember the pillowy softness and caramelized edges of the UBC Cinnamon Bun as a quintessential part of the UBC experience. But where did it all begin?
The UBC Cinnamon Bun recipe was first perfected by Hungarian Baker Grace Hasz in 1954. Within a few years she went from baking two dozen to a staggering 120 dozen per day as the bun grew in popularity.
Grace baked cinnamon buns for UBC until her retirement in 1971. She baked by instinct and never wrote the recipe down, though her grandson has recorded his attempts to recreate the original recipe from memory.
A few things have changed since 1955 – the original recipe used margarine, a holdover from war-time butter shortages, and was said to have so much cinnamon the filling looked black – but the association between UBC and great cinnamon buns has never diminished.
Today’s recipe is still made from scratch every day, using real butter and simple ingredients. Next time you’re craving a cinnamon bun, you’ll find them in most UBC Food Services locations. But go early – they often sell out!

Add these Crispy Onion & Carrot Fritters to dinner for a flavorful, vegetable-packed side dish! A dollop of cumin yogurt tops it off. Vegan & gluten-free!


1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin, divided
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons chickpea flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon lemon juice
7-8 tablespoons water
2 cups yellow onion, thinly sliced (1 large onion)
1 cup carrots, grated
2 tablespoons cilantro, stems and leaves chopped
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced


To make the yogurt sauce: In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, cumin, lemon juice, cilantro and salt. Taste for seasoning; add more salt or lemon juice to your taste and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, ground cumin, fennel seeds, and turmeric. Add the lemon juice and 7 tablespoons of the water. Mix to combine. The consistency should be like thick cream. If it seems thin, add a touch more chickpea flour, or if it is too thick you can add a bit more water.
Add the sliced onions, grated carrot, cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, and ginger to the batter and stir until all the vegetables are coated in the batter.
Line a plate with paper towel and set aside.
Heat a skillet over medium heat; use a nonstick pan or a tiny bit of cooking oil. Once it is hot, add the batter one tablespoon at a time, using the back of the spoon to flatten them out a bit. Depending on the size of your pan, you can cook about 4 at a time without crowding them. Fry the fritters for about 2-3 minutes on the first side, until a deep golden brown. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes or so.
Transfer the fritters to the paper-towel lined plate. Cook the remaining fritters in batches.
Serve hot with the cumin yogurt sauce.
Note: To keep the fritters warm while you cook the rest of the batch, you can place them on a baking sheet in a 325F oven.

Pizza Spaghetti Squash


1 spaghetti squash halved vertically and seeded
1 red bell pepper halved and seeded (or 1 roasted red pepper)
1 recipe cashew mozzarella add 1 tbsp nutritional yeast and 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup arrabbiata pasta sauce (or other pasta sauce of choice)
1 medium zucchini thinly sliced into quarter-moons
1/4 yellow onion diced
additional dried oregano and red pepper flakes to taste
(optional) fresh basil or parsley, for topping



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. After you've fully removed the guts from the squash, use a fork to poke a few holes in the flesh. Place them, concave side down, in a baking dish. Add two cups of water to the dish. If you aren't using pre-roasted pepper, add that to the dish, too.
Bake for about 45 minutes (removing the pepper earlier if needed), or until soft and fully cooked. Chop up the roasted red pepper.
(Note: while the squash is baking is a great time to make the cashew mozzarella).
Use a fork to scrape out most of the squash (which will turn into spaghetti right before your eyes!). Add it to a mixing bowl along with the red pepper, about 3 tablespoons of the cashew mozzarella, pasta sauce, zucchini, and onion. Stir until everything is well-mixed, especially the cashew cheese.
Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed. Return the filling to the hollowed-out spaghetti squash, and top with a few more dollops of cashew mozzarella.
Bake for about 20 more minutes, or until the cashew mozzarella is melted and bubbly, and the filling is hot all the way through. Serve garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
A leftover squash half will keep for up to 5-7 days in the fridge, wrapped in foil. Best reheated in the oven.

What do you get when you combine a taco and a croissant?

A TACRO of course

Here, our unauthorized and very simplified approach:

1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out a sheet of puff pastry to about a 14-inch square. (It doesn’t need to be perfect.) Use a 6-inch circle cookie cutter to cut out 4 rounds from the pastry. Or, if you don’t have one (I didn’t), use a cereal bowl to punch out the rounds.

2. Transfer the pastry rounds to the prepared baking sheet and poke all over with a fork. Lay another sheet of parchment paper on top and place another baking sheet on top of that so that the pastry is like the filling in a sandwich.

3. Transfer your sheet sandwich to the oven and bake until the pastry is lightly golden but still pliable, 10 to 12 minutes. You’ll have to lift the top sheet off to check. Be careful.

4. Using tongs (those babies are HOT), gently fold the rounds in half to form a taco shell-looking thing. Press down gently so they stay folded. Return to oven and bake until golden brown, another 5 minutes or so.

5. Let cool slightly and fill with your favorite taco fixings. Because store-bought puff pastry is not as rich as croissant dough, you’ll want to keep your fillings moist: smear sour cream or guacamole on the bottom, top with beans or, even better, pulled pork or chicken. Nothing against the beans here, but the starch on starch only makes things drier. Top with queso fresco, avocado, cilantro, salsa, hot sauce, or whatever you like.

Roast Salmon with Artichokes


olive oil
2 x 1 kg fillets of salmon , skin on, scaled, pin-boned, from sustainable sources
100 g blanched almonds
2 cloves of garlic
2 lemons
100 g stale ciabatta
2 fresh baby Italian artichokes
1 x 280 g jar of artichoke hearts in oil
1 bunch of fresh mint , (30g)
12 rashers of higher-welfare smoked streaky bacon
1 bunch of fresh thyme , (30g)



Preheat the oven to 220ºC/425ºF/gas 7.
Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper and rub with a drizzle of olive oil.
Lay 8 pieces (roughly an arm’s length each) of butcher’s string at 5cm intervals widthways across the baking tray, then place one salmon fillet on top, skin-side down.
Toast the almonds in a dry frying pan until golden, tossing regularly, then cool for 1 minute and tip into a food processor.
Peel, roughly chop and add the garlic, finely grate in the lemon zest, then tear in the ciabatta. Season with black pepper, then pulse until finely chopped. Carefully layer over the salmon.
Halve 1 lemon. Trim the artichoke stalks 2cm from the base. Peel away the tough outer leaves until you reach the paler ones that are tender enough to eat, then trim the heads to 3cm, rubbing with the cut lemon as you go to prevent discolouration. Halve the artichokes, carefully scoop out and discard the hairy chokes, then finely slice the rest.
Drain and roughly slice the jarred artichoke hearts, reserving the oil.
Drizzle 1 tablespoon of artichoke oil into a large frying pan and place over a high heat, add the jarred and fresh artichokes and fry for 2 minutes, or until warm. Pick and roughly chop the mint leaves, scatter into the pan, then remove from the heat.
Spoon the artichoke mix evenly over the salmon, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the artichoke oil, then lay the other salmon fillet on top, skin-side up.
Arrange the bacon over the top in a criss-cross pattern, then place the thyme sprigs on top. Tie the string up and around both fillets to secure the filling. Drizzle over a little artichoke oil and sprinkle any excess breadcrumbs back over the top.
Place in the middle of the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the bacon and salmon skin is golden and crisp.
Rest for 10 minutes before serving with the remaining lemon cut into wedges for squeezing over. Delicious served with buttered new potatoes and a crisp green salad.

1/3 cup diced red pepper
4 slices bacon
salt and pepper
hot sauce, to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Breakfast Skillet Burrito Casserole


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat a 10 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Thaw the frozen shredded hashbrowns in the microwave a bit. Just enough to soften them. Pour in about 1 tbsp. of olive oil and when the oil is shimmering, put the hashbrowns into the pan and work them up the sides a bit. Be careful not to get burnt. You just want to cook the crust until you see the edges brown then move the skillet off the heat.
Dice your bacon up and put it into a non stick skillet over medium heat. Cook the bacon until it's browned and then remove from pan to a paper towel lined plate.
Pour off about half of the bacon grease and then toss in the vegetables. Cook them until they are just translucent. Whisk the eggs together with the milk and add a sprinkle of salt and pepper. You'll also mix the hot sauce into the eggs if you're using it.
Pour the eggs over the pepper mixture. Cook until they are just under done.
Spread the eggs over the hashbrown crust, then sprinkle the cheese and bacon pieces over top. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted.
