Cinnamon Rolls

**I’m posting my Cinnamon Rolls recipe to the front page, after it was featured on The Kitchn today. I’ve included the sweet dough recipe, too!  I’m posting the cinnamon roll recipe from my book (affiliate link) here today, as many of you have been looking for it after the Pancake Princess declared it winner of her Cinnamon Roll Bake Off (yay!). I’ve made cinnamon buns in a different way…

Apple Cider Cinnamon Rolls

Apple Cider Cinnamon Rolls

I decided to see what would happen if I played around with my Sweet dough recipe – adding apple cider instead of milk, for an Autumn-ish type of breakfast bun. These apple cider cinnamon rolls came out beautifully, with the faintest apple flavor. I’m not one for apple chunks in my buns and rolls (I find them distracting), so instead, to draw out the apple flavor, I opted…

Strawberry Poppyseed Swirl Buns

I’m back with more swirl buns! When I stumbled upon the recipe for Strawberry Poppy Seed Buns from the new Bake From Scratch cookbook, I decided to drop everything (which was really just taking a break from recipe testing for my next book) and make them. If you haven’t heard of Bake From Scratch, you can find their webpage here. They also have a monthly magazine that is a…

Raised Mini Donuts

Mini Donuts! With all the options for fancy, over-the-top donuts, I often forget the simple pleasure of a tiny donut coated in sugar. In the past these small circles were enjoyed at some kind of amusement park or fair; a bag purchased on the way out after a long day of walking for miles and spending way too much money on food already. Now I can make them…

caramel rolls

It is rainy and chilly here in Minneapolis, and although we just had a weekend of 90 degree weather, I’m slightly excited about the possibility of autumn approaching. Caramel Rolls seem like the right way to celebrate. Made with my favorite sweet dough, these rolls are swirled up in cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, then smothered in warm caramel and toasted pecans. I made these rolls in the Mauviel…

strawberries and cream brioche buns

I’m back with another bun recipe! This will be my last for awhile, although I do love making them. I used the soufflé molds I keep going on about (I’m crazy about them), but these can easily be made the ‘regular’ way – on a good old-fashioned baking sheet or in a 9 x 13 pan. Also, don’t forget to enter my **GIVEAWAY** I’m giving away some more Mauviel copper! Contest…

cardamom sugar buns

I’m back with more buns. This is a recipe (and post) I put up on my site years ago, and I thought I’d bring it back to life by baking the buns (yet again) in my favorite soufflé molds (if you don’t have these molds, never fear! You can also bake the buns in ramekins or muffin tins; directions below). The recipe is adapted from Tara O’Brady’s Sugar…
