A decadent cinnamon bun recipe for you!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life|Recipes and Food

My MIL has been making these cinnamon buns for holiday breakfasts as long as I can remember. I cannot describe how good they are – warm, sweet, gooey – the perfect sugar rush to go with a hot cup of coffee when you need it most.

I was the one who was tasked to make them this year, and although they didn’t turn out nearly as pretty as hers do they still tasted pretty darn awesome.

There is nothing simpler. You assemble the ingredients in a bundt pan the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning. I’m thinking they’d be perfect for a New Year’s breakfast.

The recipe is from Best of Bridge, and lucky us, it’s online right here.

We generally make sticky buns from scratch but these look terribly tempting.

I hate to sound dumb but what kind of frozen rolls are you supposed to use?

Sherry – you’re supposed to use small (white flour) frozen dinner rolls. You can find them at major grocery stores. My MIL always gets them from the person behind the counter in the bakery department.

[…] who remembers when. Every year she made Land of Nod Cinnamon Buns (which I briefly wrote about here). They were always a favourite part of our breakfast on Christmas […]

The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families.
