Patience is a Virtue

Posted on

I’m normally a pretty patient person but when it comes to baking, I have very little of it. I always tend to avoid recipes that say “freeze for *insert ridiculous time here*” and I make sure to stay away from recipes involving yeast because the dough takes forever to rise! But, since I just got my new hand mixer with the dough hooks, I decided to do my best and try Alton Brown’s overnight cinnamon rolls recipe (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/overnight-cinnamon-rolls-recipe/index.html). This was definitely the ultimate torture because not only do I have to wait for the dough to rise, but I have to refrigerate the rolls overnight too! This is only the second recipe I’ve ever made involving yeast and I’m starting this blog as I’m waiting for the dough to rise. We’ll see how it turns out…

Now I’m left with a heap of dough and 2 1/2 hours left to let it rise…

…2 1/2 hours later I discover I’m horrible at rolling

Ah finally we’re getting somewhere!

But now we wait overnight šŸ˜¦

Finally they’re done!! I decided not to wait the full 30 minutes for them to rise in the oven because the oven didn’t retain the heat from the boiling water past 20 minutes and they looked slightly puffy before then anyways. I am so proud of how they came out considering it was my first time ever making cinnamon buns and if there was a way to describe to you the smell of freshly baked buns, believe me I would. They were just incredible. And then once the icing was on, they looked to die for.
