Unlike the recipe in this post my spam folder brought me a Cinnamon Buns recipe I can make. I refuse to buy a bread machine, I want to beat up that bread dough and this recipe let me do that. On the other hand, it took a very long time to make. Next time, I’ll just make my favorite recipe that only takes a couple of hours (if I’m being lazy!).
Anyway, the recipe!
I made these, of course. I love Cinnamon Buns, Cinnamon Rolls, Cinnamon Scones… I like cinnamon.
Anyway, here’s the start of the recipe:
I had to let that sit a long time before it hit 80 degrees. My kitchen got reorganized and the junk drawer even got cleaned out.
Then I made the bread dough. The recipe called for 6 cups of flour, but after 5 and a half, I had a good dough so I stopped adding it.
I had to wait three hours (I watched a movie and did the laundry) and then I got to punch the dough down. It looked very much like the previous picture. Once that rose again, I dumped it out on my mat and got this:
The recipe said add sugar first and then the cinnamon. I’m lazy, so I mixed them together:
I was going to add raisins, but someone (Fred) got into my stash. I found a mostly empty container in my pantry. Oh well, I like cinnamon buns without raisins too!
I finally got to make the buns and bake them at 350. This is the final result.
They were very tasty. The dough was yummy and I could have used more sugar and cinnamon for a gooier result, but they were still very good.
But like I said, they just took way too long. A long time to let the milk cool, three hours to let the first rise happen, another hour, another ten minutes, another hour, then bake. Sheesh, that’s a lot of work. I’ll stick to my mother’s favorite in the future.
Unless my spam folder brings another one!
Until next time, toodles!
