Baking: Cinnamon bun Day Part 2

After about 30-45 minutes go check on your buns.
Depending on your inner temperature they might need some more yeasting. They should about double in size.
After 30-45 minutes yeasting "the professioonal way" (in OFF oven
with a pot of boiling water at bottom)  your buns are HUGE!
Brush them lightly with egg mixture (1 egg, 1 tablespoon of water and ½ teaspoon of salt).
Pour on heavily with pearl sugar.
Toss them in your oven. 
Eat, eat, EAT!

Baking: Cinnamon bun Day Part 1

So far I've done this:
Mix all the ingredients for 10 minutes. No need to melt butter and heaten milk. The blending process will make it warm enough for the yeast to wake up.
Put a towel over it and place in a warm invironment.
40 minutes later it will look like this.
Put in on your baking table with just the smallest amount of flour.
Use your rolling-pin to make it B I G.
Spread butter/cinnamon/sugar mixture on half of the dough.
Like this.
Now gently fold the dough together.
Making it look like this.
Shred the dough to about 20-22 pieces.
Cut it into a pair of pants. (You don't have to do this step. You can move on to the next one, but I always do it like this)
Tvist it.
Turn it. Number 6 makes good buns.
Tuck in the little end in the middle. Makes it look like a turd, right!
All the little cinnamon buns in their little homes.
Other view.
If you are going to eat the buns today - put them in "paper cups" (what the hell is the english word for that?) to make them look nice.
But are you going to put them in your freezer I recommend you NOT to put them in paper cause it will only fall off and make you swear.
And now my little buns are safely tucked in to grow and be a bit bigger.
Put in a warm, and preferably bit moist place, for about 40 minutes.
(The professionals recommend to put them in the oven (on OFF) and put a kettle of boiling water at the bottom.)
And this is where I'm at right now. Waiting, waiting....

You can't watch me!

Nooo, I'm not paranoid at all putting a pink bow sticker on my computers webcam.....
And you know: it is possible for people of no-life-just-messing-with- you-things to actually kidnap the webcam.
You'll see! Mark my words,MARK MY WORDS!

Baking: Cinnamon bun Day

Today is the Swedish Cinnamon bun Day!
So it's like a rule to make Cinnamon buns today.
If we don't do it, or at least eat one, we'll have to go to jail.

My dough is just ready to be made into buns so I'll go carve it up real good.
Picture soon...

Old picture of the day

In my late 20's.
No bangs so I usually had a brooch attached in front to draw attention to my PERFECTLY rounded forhead (as I have mentioned to be my best feature) ;)
Adora, why so serious?
