There is something very comforting about biting into a cinnamon roll – the soft bread with almost melted sugar and the warm spice hit from cinnamon! Perfection is the name!
When I embarked on the A-Z of the baking journey, there was one alphabet I was crystal clear on – C is for cinnamon rolls. I adore cinnamon rolls and the fact that I love cinnamon as a spice should be pretty evident from the name of the blog itself, and for those who don’t know yet. The name is a play on cinnamon the spice, sinful goodies and my name Monika 🙂
There is something very comforting about biting into a cinnamon roll, the soft and pillowy bread, almost melted sugar and the warm spice hit from cinnamon.
Over time with so much baking and the smell of sugar, I have mostly gotten over my dessert cravings, apart from a few things, and cinnamon rolls still tops the list of those things.
A cup of tea or coffee, a book and a cinnamon roll is all I need to get lost in my happy world. When I have these things, I am suddenly at peace with everything around me.
When I am in an extra decadent mood, I add a coffee and maple syrup frosting to it and then I reach a place where nothing can ever go wrong with the world, not till I have those cinnamon rolls in supply anyway!
So before I go off to the dreamy world of cinnamon rolls and tea, here is the recipe for you and you can use this recipe with any filling. I have, at times, used orange marmalade, Nutella, even cake crumbs and cherries. It depends on my mood on that day, but cinnamon sugar is the favorite.
