Cinnamon rolls

In Cambridge we have a cafe/cake shop called Cinnabon. You may have guessed from the name but It only sells variations of cinnamon rolls. Its delicious but sadly incredibly expensive. By that I mean crazy prices that just cannot be justified however yummy the produce. So today I thought I'd give baking my own cinnamon buns a try. I used the recipe in British Baking by Peyton and Byrne. It was easy to follow but rather time consuming because of the amount of time bread takes to rise and knead. You do get an impressive result and it is a calming and satisfying process (like with any bread making!). Overall the effort was definitely worth it!
