What to do in bad weather... bake, eat, and store fat for the Winter! I made cinnamon rolls over the weekend from a recipe in the Irish Times. I'd never made them from scratch before and I was suprised how easy it is. Mostly flour, sugar and butter!
This is the dough after it was left to rise for 45 minutes. There are plenty of recipes for cinnamon rolls on the internet. This one called for 14g of yeast. It's so much fun seeing bread rise. This big ball of dough was divided in two and rolled out into two rectangles, spread with a buttery sugar mix & raisons, rolled, sliced and then put in round pans to bake for approx 35 minutes. (no chocolate this time)
This is the result. I think they taste as good as the Cinnabon chain!
On a cold, Wintry day, these are a great way to cuddle up to a coffee and a good book.
