Cinnamon buns

Hellooooo, sexy. I don’t think you can beat a fresh cinnamon roll – they’re so ridiculously scrumptious. They’re made using an enriched dough but it’s pretty simple. Best of all, you can cheat and use a dough hook, so there’s no faff with getting dough all over your kitchen!

Autumn-y goodness!

But if you can face making something that brings fallen leaves, grey skies, and a nip in the air to mind, then please bake away. It’ll be worth it. Adapted from Hummingbird’s Cake Days. Ingredients Makes 16 3 oz margarine 8 oz castor sugar … Continue reading Spiced Apple & Cinnamon Cupcakes
