Ooey-Gooey Goodness


This week for my learning project, I made homemade cinnamon buns.  I chose this recipe because it was a no knead recipe, which I was really excited to try.  After reading the comments, I also read up about tips for making these cinnamon buns – I found these tips very helpful!  First of all, I mixed oil, milk and sugar in my large stockpot and then let it cool for an hour.  After an hour, I added flour and yeast and put the lid on to let the yeast work for an hour.


This is what my dough looked like after rising for one hour – very moist dough.  I added another half a cup of flour and some other ingredients, stirred, and the dough was ready to go!  I loved how easy the making of the dough was!  Certainly the easiest this far!  I rolled out the dough in a large rectangle, and covered in the one cup of melted butter.


After putting the butter on, I mixed the white sugar and a lot of cinnamon and incorporated it with the butter.


I grabbed the edge of the long side and rolled the dough into a log.  Now this was a real struggle.  There was way to much butter and so they dough was too heavy for me to be able to pull up and wrap.  Next time, I would cut the amount of butter in half.  Not that we don’t all love butter, but this is what was left on my counter after I got the cinnamon rolls cut and into my pan.



The recipe made 15 rolls, I made one pan and a small pan with just a few.


The cinnamon buns were so simple!  I forgot to take a picture before I iced them, so this is all I have for the finished product.  They turned out very light, fluffy and delicious.  I have a new favourite cinnamon roll recipe!

Thanks for reading! Its been a slice!
