12 7 Foods To Fall In Love With: A cinnamon roll worth its frosting (3rd of 12 7 parts)
When it comes to commercially available cinnamon rolls, most arenâ€™t worth their dough, or mine. But hereâ€™s one that is.
Note: Note: I aim to finish off this list by Friday, Feb 12, 2010 because I also intend to celebrate Valentineâ€™s Day with my Valentine. (Yes, Iâ€™m a huge proponent of Feb 14).
So, 12 posts / 5 days = 2.4 posts/day. Okay, so I was out of my mind when I attempted to do 12 posts in 5 days. (whacking forehead) Iâ€™ve whittled it down to 7 posts in 5 days. The rest will follow next week.
From above, they look like cupcakes, evidence of that artfully piped swirl. But thatâ€™s no ordinary swirl and thatâ€™s no cupcake either. The swirl is that of vanilla custard and it crowns this cinnamon roll. Unlike a regular roll of this cinnamon-y sort, this one consists of layers of soft, soft dough coiled around a layer of nose-tingling cinnamon. When heated up in either the microwave or oven, the layers tend to collapse onto themselves, forming crevices into which the now-melted vanilla custard rosette pools into. Itâ€™s quite the arresting sight to see at breakfast.
