baking and eating

I've been baking cinnamon buns all weekend.  Well, Joshua made me some on Saturday and then Mateo and I started some yesterday.  He had to head to his mums and I got a bit impatient so I made a batch yesterday... Then today we finished them off! YUMMMMY in my belly.

And here is Aunt Judy Reid's secret recipe:


1 pkg. yeast
1 cup warm water (just warm)
1/3 cup sugar
4 tab. Melted butter
1 cup warm milk (be sure it is just warm and not too hot or it will kill the
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
5-6 cups flour (or until it is sticky but not heavy or thick)

Dissolve yeast in warm water, add other ingredients and mix together well. The dough should be a bit sticky. Cover and let rise (I do this the night before and let rise in the refrigerator). Split the dough and roll out on floured surface.
Spread with melted or soft butter and cover with lots of brown sugar and cinnamon (approximately 1 cup with 1 ? tsp. cinnamon for both). Roll and slice about ? inch for rolls and a little less for the muffin tins which are sprayed first.

Let rise another 15 - 20 minutes and bake in 350 oven till done (approx. 12-15 min??) light but not brown (watch the muffin tins so that they are just done or they will be dry). You can pull the middle and see if rolls look done or use a tooth pick.

Drizzle warm rolls with powered sugar/milk/vanilla frosting. J

  1. Yum! I do the brown sugar and cinnamon (sprinkle cinnamon right on top of the "layer" of brown sugar!). My frosting is 8 oz cream cheese, 1 lb powder sugar, 1 c butter, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp lemon juice - mix for 12 minutes, yes 12 minutes! Just like cinnabun's frosting.
