This Cinnamon Rolls recipe has been booked marked for quite a while now. Since last weekend was a long holiday - I decided to give the recipe a try! And so, I bought all the ingredients and was really excited to bake the cinnamon rolls! To be honest, I was more excited for the frosting! Hahaha..
So there I was, on a hot Monday afternoon - prepping the ingredients. I thought to myself - it was easy! I measured every cup, tablespoon and teaspoon. I mixed everything by hand - and boy was it tiring!
When it came to kneading the dough - I sensed, something was wrong. The dough wasn't as tough as I thought it would be. It was actually jelly-ish, and I had a hard time kneading it because it was sticking all over! I then tried to roll it flat and I was successful. I put on the filling and when I started to roll it - that was when the FAIL started. I couldn't roll the damn dough because it was too soft, jelly-ish and breaking! My Panget even noticed that it was breaking up - he then told me to throw it out and try again. But you see - I spent at least an hour prepping on it and I didn't want it to go to waste - so I just decided to mix them (the dough and filling) together and throw it in a loaf pan and bake it. I'm sure it'll be alright - hahaha!
And so I waited for 20 minutes. I left it to bake and when I came back, the kitchen (and the whole house) smelled sooooo cinnamon-ny!! :)
And here is what happened, the Cinnamon Rolls turned into a Cinnamon Loaf!
I think what I did wrong was use Cake Flour instead of the ordinary APF. But it still tasted good! I like the flaky-ness.
I didn't make the frosting anymore. I have yet to try to make it!
