Over the weekend Rosa and Angus had such a craving for homemade baked goods that there was nothing for it but to get to work and start baking!
They looked through the cupboards and found they had just the right ingredients to make cinnamon buns (they even had Swedish pearl sugar which is ideal, some would say essential, for sprinkling on the top of cinnamon buns).
Rosa, who definitely isn't a novice when it comes to cinnamon buns, took charge and gave Angus instructions on measurements and technique.
She then took on the job of egg cracking, she was unsure how much egg-cracking experience Angus had and the worst possible outcome would be egg shells in the buns!
They then stirred in the flour, eggs and the remaining ingredients and left the dough to rise.
Meanwhile, Angus very competently prepared the bun filling.
Rolling out the dough was a two critter job and they tried a few different rolling techniques.
They decided the roller handle method was the most effective and energy conserving (they still had a little way to go before the buns were oven ready).
Rosa spooned out the filling which smelt amazing! And Angus spread it out quite expertly (he has extensive spreading experience, he eats at least one peanut butter sandwich a day).
Then together they rolled the dough.
And cut it into nice bun size pieces.
Rosa covered the buns with their best pink tea towel to let the buns sit for a while.
Finally it was time to add the finishing touches, this is where the Swedish pearl sugar comes in handy.
Then just 15 mins in the oven and they were done! Time for tea and some extremely tasty homemade cinnamon buns!
