I am officially a Daring Baker! My initiation could not have coincided with a tastier recipe. Marce from Pip in the City hosted this month's challenge and she chose Cinnamon and/or Sticky Buns. I couldn't wait to try them so I made them at the beginning of the month. Another reason for that was that I wanted to make them before I moved.
I decided to make the entire batch just cinnamon buns with fondant glaze. The dough was very easy to work with and the only problem I really had was entirely my fault. When I first rolled up the dough to form the buns, I didn't roll it tight enough and I had a hard time cutting the buns and they were coming undone. I had to unroll and reroll every single bun but that worked and my buns turned out great.
I did find the glaze recipe made way too much and I used less than half the glaze. Other than that, it was a great recipe.
We loved the buns and I will definitely be making them again but maybe I'll try half cinnamon and half sticky next time! For the recipe, see the link to Marce's above.
I love to cook but hate washing up. I own over 300 cookbooks and counting. I am a sucker for pretty cookbooks and don't generally like cookbooks without pictures. I love history and food history and I am very interested in period, especially medieval, cookery as well as modern.
I have recently taken up sewing and now I'm a fabric stashaholic and a pattern junkie. Just like my cookbooks, I own over 300 patterns before counting pattern magazines. As you can see, I have a bit of an addictive personality. Thankfully, I only seem to be addicted to good stuff.....and shoes (but that's another story!)
I own three bikes, three helmets, two pairs of cycling shoes and 5 pairs of real running shoes that look exactly the same, 4 still in their boxes because they have been discontinued and I bought all the stock left in a specific store. Yeah, I'm crazy.
