It was cold, I was cold. How better to stay warm than stay in the kitchen and throw stuff in the oven to bake. I baked Pumpkin Bread and two
gigantic pretty big cinnamon rolls.
Some tourist traps have big rolls…how do they do it? Last May Jen and Andy found a huge sweet roll in Michigan…they drove off the freeway twice to get the biggest sweet roll in Michigan.
They also brought us some fudge. That huge sweet roll has been bugging me since I devoured at least half of it. How did they do it? What was their recipe?
It wasn’t this one..because I used half wheat/half white flour.
And my drizzle was tart because I used lemon juice in the powdered sugar. I had to guess when they were done because I forgot to set the freaking timer. Luckily they were done just right.
It nearly filled up a dinner plate. Far Guy thought they were really good. I was not satisfied so I will try a different recipe again one of these days. Maybe closer to the time when the grand boys are coming to visit.
I might need some new yeast. I put everything into the bread machine to mix up and rest. The dough was nice to work with but it should have risen more. Not that I am an expert baker or anything…I bake just enough to get by. No fire alarms sounded.
It snowed yesterday, it was bitterly cold. The wind blew and Chance made his trips outside in record time. It was –2 F or –18 C yesterday morning, I think winter has come to stay:(
