Sunday Cinnamon Rolls
As I was browsing through some of the other recipes on the Cooking Classy blog the other day, I found this one for 45 Minute Cinnamon Rolls. We’re both cinnamon roll lovers here, perhaps a bit too much, so we don’t have them often. Plus there’s the issue of working with most traditional cinnamon roll recipes that are based on yeast doughs that require lots of preparation and rising time, and who wants to get up that early on a Sunday morning? A recipe that only takes 45 minutes from start to finish, including baking time, sounded ideal! An added bonus is that this recipe only makes 8 rolls so if there are only a couple of you in the house or you’re not feeding a crowd, you won’t have tons of rolls left over.
As you can see, we managed to dispatch 4 of the rolls for breakfast on Sunday morning. Perhaps not the most healthy way to start the day, but who can turn down a moist, warm cinnamon roll fresh out of the oven? This recipe was very easy to make – the dough goes together quickly and is rich and moist from the buttermilk. It is rather sticky, as the recipe states, so be prepared to be a little messy. Butter the bottom of the pan really well – you can see where some of the filling from mine stuck a bit and where the rolls released more easily.
If (when?) I make these again, I may try using the King Arthur cinnamon filling mix I have instead of the brown sugar/cinnamon mix the recipe calls for, just to see how they turn out differently.
