Ever since starting this blog, I have been keeping my own list of foods which aren’t in either of the books, but I think really should be. I’m going to start posting some of these with recipes and making up a new little collection of foods that I think are must-eats.
First up is cinnamon buns. Not the kind that you get at Cinnabon, where they stick to every part of you, and where the smell of the store makes you feel a little nauseated because it’s so sickly. I mean the fresh ones you make at home that are warm and light and packed with cinnamon with just a drizzle of icing. (Writing this is now making me really regret the fact that I just had toast for breakfast today).
I base mine on the Pioneer Woman’s recipe, though I make 1/4 of the amount she does in that link as I only have 2 people to feed not a whole neighbourhood! However instead of the maple frosting she makes, I just top mine with a super simple icing - a 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to which you add water 1 tsp at a time until it reaches a thick but runny enough to pour consistency. My picture is buns pre-icing, but that will make enough for a generous drizzle.
