BBA Challenge - Cinnamon Buns
Today was a perfect day to mix up some of Mr. Reinhart's Cinnamon Buns. I didn't have any trouble mixing the dough. I used all the buttermilk and added just a bit extra flour to help the dough come away from the bowl. The dough was nice and soft. I made the large buns. Cutting the rolled dough was a little tricky on my first try when I tried to saw back and forth with my knife. But I found if I used my serrated knife and pulled the knife toward me, then lifted it up and drew it through again and again, I was able to cut the pieces without mashing the dough. Then I used a little spatula to lift the pieces onto my pan.
After rising the buns were touching like they should:
After baking I only used about 1/2 of the glaze to drizzle over the tops. It was enough for our taste.
We really liked these with a cup of coffee. Thank you, Mr. Reinhart.
