I had to constantly remind myself to stick to the recipe this week. Because I genuinely wanted to see how they would turn out. I have a very intimate relationship with cinnamon rolls (yes, I just said intimate). And these were good but it's hard to compare a recipe I have tried for the first time to one I have over-hauled and made exactly how I like it. It's really not fair. I don't know if you've heard though; life isn't fair. Even though they had some stiff competition, they made a decent showing, they were pretty good cinnamon rolls. I will probably stick to the recipe I love but I did learn some things this week (of course!).
I did like the idea of adding buttermilk to the dough and I might try to incorporate that into the other recipe at some point. I also liked inverting them to get them out of the pan and then flipping them back over so they were right side up. I have always just served cinnamon rolls right out of the pan they were baked in, but they were easier to serve this way, especially if you had a crowd.
For some reason, I made 13. I wish I had made them on Friday the 13th. Before the last rise.
Ready to bake.
And ready to eat.
