k&a: cinnamon buns


I promised you my yeast free cinnamon buns recipe and I always deliver! I've baked them a few times now to make them bullet proof (okay, shooting cinnamon buns makes no sense at all but you know what I mean). Here is part of my introduction to the recipe at kitchen & aroma:

I have nothing against yeast; I simply don't have the patience to use it! There, I said it. About two years ago I began experimenting with a yeast free cinnamon buns (rolls) recipe. Everyone in this household loved it, but I wasn't 100% happy, I wanted them softer. On a beautiful Sunday morning in September I was dreaming about freshly baked and soft cinnamon buns when I had an epiphany! I ran into the kitchen, put the invisible stay-out-of-my-kitchen sign on the door, put on my apron and began working, and I got the results I wanted. The yummy noises at the dining table were very rewarding … By the way, the recipe includes no eggs and the dough itself contains no sugar. And you know what, the buns are delicious!

Now to a totally different subject: Has it ever occurred to you that Claudia Schiffer is a vampire? Amanda at Blue LaReve suggested it in a comment to my yesterday's post and you know what, I think she's right. It makes perfect sense; the woman hasn't aged at all!

I never thought I would see cinnamon buns and vampires together in a blog post.

Have a fabulous day!

  4. I never thought I would see cinnamon buns and Claudia Schiffer together in a blog post. why? because the way she looks, she did never felt the taste of cinnamon buns :))))
    This summer I discovered Cinnabon and I instantly felt in love (yeehh, you can say it "you didn't wait for cold weather to come to start eating thousand of calories" :P). Well, we are not perfect :D! Those cinnamon buns of your look so great!!! Yammyyyyyy

  6. These look so yummy!!! I love cinnamon in everything, so have a feeling I'm going to love these very much. :) By the way, I have a recipe for cinnamon buns with yeast that don't require ANY labour-intensive tasks or waiting time (that's why I love that recipe). Will bake them sometime soon and publish, so you can see and try the recipe yourself if you like.

  9. Perfect time of the year for cinnamon buns too and I can practically smell them wafting out my computer screen! I'm always a bit cautious of bread-like recipes but I might very well give this a go! Thanks Lisa!

  10. okay this is officially on my list for this sunday's indulgence. Too bad the fiancee doesn't like cinnamon.....more for me!!!! *evil laugh*

    I hate baking with yeast, too. It never turns out right (most likely because I never have the patience to wait long enough)

  11. This is just cruel...I am just back from school, hungry as a horse and then these appear as from out of nowhere......Damn you Lísa :)

  12. LOL!! I don't like to think of women having "work" done, so I'm sticking with my vamp theory. ;)

    Yeast-free cinnamon buns - you're a goddess!! I love cinnamon buns, but have never made them. Like you, I lack patience. I can barely wait for them to bake, who wants to wait for the dough to rise?!
