Sym asked me today if I could get her a cinnamon bun while I was out (I went shopping to cheer myself up), but I thought it would be more fun if we made our own! After some quick googling I chose the first recipe on this page because it didn’t require yeast (we didn’t have time to let dough rise before her dad came to pick her up). I modified it slightly by:
a) not fully reading the instructions and putting in too much butter
b) making a simple glaze with confectioner’s sugar & milk instead of cream cheese icing
c) dividing the dough in half to make 18 smaller, Symmie-sized buns which I baked in muffin trays
Aprons on, ready to bake! Sym didn’t wear her apron that matches mine; she says that one is only for cupcakes.
Sym was mostly in charge of DSi-ing.
They look pretty good! I mixed the glaze up in my gravy boat (which has never been used for gravy) so I could pour it on the buns easily. I sifted the sugar first, and started with about half a cup, then added milk by half-tablespoons and more sugar by heaping tablespoons until it reached the right consistency. You need a lot of sugar and only a teeny-tiny bit of milk for this.
They look REALLY GOOD. But what does Symmie think?
I think I can chalk these up as a success! Of course, after making them I have a little bit of a situation on my hands…
ARGH. Now I really regret not doing the dishes after dinner last night. Whoopsies!
