1 teaspoon cinnamon

Buns
Place all the ingredients into your bread maker according to your bread maker’s guidelines.
Set on the DOUGH cycle. You can add all honey or substitute some for sugar. I recommend add at least half honey because it gives the bread the rich honey flavor.
When DOUGH cycle is finished, divide dough into about 30 pieces, cover so they do not dry out. Roll one at a time into snakes and coil them, moistening the tail and pressing it down on the edge to make a coiled bun. Keep the others covered until they are all coiled or they will make a crust and won’t rise properly.
Place on foil lined baking sheet and spray the foil with non stick cooking spray. You can get about 15 buns on a sheet. Place in a warm, draft free place to rise. I find that the oven with the light turned on and a bowl of boiling water set in the bottom works best. Allow the buns to rise until they have doubled in size about 45 minutes. Remove pans and preheat oven to 400degrees F. Bake for 15 minutes or until they are lightly browned. My honey buns took about 14 minutes to bake.

Frosting
Mix together all the ingredients and drizzle on the Honey Buns after cooling. Icing will be firm like donut icing when ready.
