Coffee, Cinnamon & Chocolate Buns

This month we’ve chosen to highlight our Coffee chocolate slab. Made from 72% pure, raw organic cacao and sprinkled with cracked coffee beans, this slab is a hit amongst many!

We created these delightful cinnamon and chocolate buns, covered with a coffee glaze and filled with our Honest coffee chocolate ganache.

Try the recipe out for yourself!


For the pastry:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

¼ cup sugar

60grams butter

10grams instant yeast

One egg

½ cup lukewarm water


Combine flour, salt and sugar & rub in the butter to form breadcrumbs

Add yeast and then the egg (beaten) and just enough water to form a soft dough

Knead the dough for 10 minutes and place the dough in a bowl, leaving to rest for 10 minutes

Roll the dough out into a rectangle about ½cm thick and spread a thin layer of the filling over the dough

Roll dough into a long cylinder and cut the cylinder in half

Twist two pieces around each other to create a plait

Form into a ring on a lined baking sheet, or cut the cylinder into several pieces and make mini rings

Cinnamon chocolate filling:

20grams butter

120grams brown sugar

12grams ground cinnamon

10 grams flour

1 Honest coffee slab


Bring butter, sugar, cinnamon and flour to the boil.

Add chocolate off the heat & whisk until smooth

Coffee glaze:

½ cup  sugar

½ cup water

1 shot espresso

1 teaspoon cinnamon


Bring all ingredients to the boil. Brush over the buns while still hot.
