Yesterday my internet connection was still being ridiculous. Today it’s behaving–so far–so let me catch you up to speed. Hubby and I enjoyed a leisurely morning, getting up later than usual to feast on scrambled eggs, bacon, and homemade bread. Then I decided to spend the rest of the morning in the kitchen. I made several things, but the one I’m sharing today is Cinnamon Sticky Buns. Ohhhh, yeah.
It’s a multi-step, and therefore time-consuming, recipe, but worth every moment.
1. Twice-risen dough, please meet cinnamon brown sugar.
2. The sugar looks dark because it’s soaking up the melted butter brushed all over the rolled-out dough.
3. Finally, slices from the rolled-up dough go on top of the caramely topping in a baking dish. They sleep in the fridge til breakfast. I’ll try to photograph a baked one before devouring them all, but I make no promises.
I got the recipe here two Christmases ago, when two families pitied our holiday-orphan state and insisted we share a meal with them that day. We had lunch with one family and dinner with the other, and brought cinnamon rolls to both. They were a big hit so I’ve been making them ever since. Today I had no nuts in the house so these are plain ol’ sticky buns. I think they’ll pass muster. Something about all that sugar and butter gives me confidence in them.
