Being Stubborn Makes You Eat Too Much Sugar...



For some reason, I absolutely want a cinnamon bun/brioche for breakfast at Edgar.
This is test number 2 and I am still not happy with it. I did a second variation of the dough and will do a third soon... Maybe I feel 5 again and I want to see that in a cloche and it being so marvelous and yummy and gooooey.

Cinnamon Bun I will conquer you.

I can be a taste-tester too! Or baker, if needed.

are you testing dough or filling or both?? i feel this is crucial to discussing the success of cinnamon buns and other brioches.

just, don't take it too seriously.

ladies, next time maybe!!! I am not yet proud of this...

Mary, do you have a go-to recipe? I will try making a brioche/hot cross bun type dough the next time. This was not sweet enough and too dense.

The other one was too dry...

aaarrrgh.

kaitlin, can't help it!!! I am obsessive.

I am putting a lot of lemon zest and thinking of you because you remind me of my Bridgehead card and I bought the morning buns and they remind me of lemon and and and...

I think I am tired.

I guess we have to get in line to taste tests these sticky buns! LOL :)

Good luck on the recipe development!

Mary said...

Oh no, I don't have a go-to recipe, cause I'd be as big as a house if I baked them all the time. The weather is making me want to bake, though, so if I come up with anything I'll let you know. Best of luck with it all!

oh yes, a cinnamon bun is a MUST! Very hard to find the perfectly gooey type though!
