Any recipe that deals with yeast scares me. I’m not sure if it’s because of the magical capabilities it has to transform a small round of bread into an overflowing Ghost Bowl-Buster or if it’s because of the name… yeast… either way it’s something I’ve always stay away from when I sort through new recipes to try at home.
Recently my 6-year-old Camden told me that he ordered a #2 option at school (Cinnamon Roll) and was disappointed to see that he got something else. My soul laughed a little, but it also cried a little because I know the excitement of ordering that sweet piece of heaven only to be let down by getting something else. So naturally the mom in me needed to push past my fears of yeast and make Camden that Cinnamon Roll he’d been craving.
In trying to find the perfect Cinnamon Roll recipe I needed something that met the following criteria:
- All ingredients were currently in my pantry
- Recipe that took less than 1 hour since my time and patience expires quickly while cooking/baking
- Simple ingredients (1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cardamon, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg… seriously who has time to measure out that many spices?!)
Below you will find a recipe I found with a few tweaks to make it simple and personalized to me – The Papa’s Roast Coffee Trailer Entrepreneur who also owns MenSalon and is known for her Cheesecakes and Scones while making Pumpkin Chai Milkshakes – simple.
