Caramel cinnamon buns – weekend spoils

November 8, 2014

Cinnamon RollsIs there anything more comforting than waking up in a cozy place to the rich smells of an extravagant breakfast? We’ve been lucky enough to have a truly mild fall this year. After a crazy snowstorm in September that brought down a lot of old and unsuspecting trees, it’s been really warm and sunny. I’ve heard whispers that we’re in for it next week with temps set to drop and so we’re cuddling up with some gooey caramel cinnamon buns this weekend (and maybe some mulled wine).¬†This recipe is a little rich for my taste, but for a first stab at cinnamon buns, I’m pretty happy with the results.

I went for a highly rated recipe for “Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Buns” on All Recipes. What is your favourite cinnamon roll recipe?

On a separate note, we’ve been baking with dough so much lately that I’m dying to read Peter Reinhart’s book The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. I even made my poor brother watch Reinhart’s TED Talk, The Art and Craft of Bread, it was so interesting, but turns out not everyone is as into dough and bread making as I am!
