Good evening ladies and gentlemen!
I had the most uneventful Saturday. slept in, made these puppies, attempted to do homework, and fell asleep multiple times while trying to read Hobbes’ Leviathan. For the record, that guy was crazy. Angry, pessimistic, and just downright sad. Rough life.
These were so delightful and bright-tasting this morning! The lemon flavour really came through, and the cream cheese kept it just savoury enough to keep flavours balanced. The buns had a soft, chewy texture, and that distinct yeast aroma. Yum.
There is something about the process of making cinnamon buns that I just love. Or maybe it’s just working with yeast. I want to try making more complicated breads, using starters. If anyone knows of any good recipes let me know! I have been checking out some sourdough recipes….
