What’s that smell?

As the aroma fills my house of warm brown sugar and cinnamon I cannot wait to taste these dough rolls of heaven!

Like I stated last week I DO NOT BAKE! However, I found this local recipe from The Everyday Kitchen… They are located in Regina, Sask. Serving sourdough donuts, brown butter cinnamon buns, and coffee! If you are looking for an amazing sourdough or coffee house, check them out! A good place to start seeing what they have to offer is on their Instagram account.

I am trying to stay local or small business(ish) on my baking journey and I thought this recipe will be perfect for my first attempt in the kitchen. It says; that it is easy to follow, even for non-bakers!

The recipe is organized well and it breaks down each process step by step: attached is the recipe. https://www.theeverydaykitchen.ca/brown-butter-cinnamon-buns/

The Process:

This is the dough process. Activate the yeast, form the dough, wait!
After 1.5 hours the dough is ready!
The filling: roll dough flat, spread melted butter, add brown sugar and cinnamon, roll dough up, cut into pieces.
Let them rise once more, bake, make your icing of choice, spread that goodness all over!

Verdict is in!



Stay Sweet,

Baking Tip #2: If you do not have a rolling pin, like me! you can use any cylinder object. I used a glass to make these cinnamon buns.

  1. Hi Shana!

    Yay! You did make cinnamon buns, I am going to pretend that my suggestion on twitter played a role in your decision to make these bahaha! All jokes aside these look so delicious and I love that you used a recipe from somewhere local – such a good idea. I am excited to see what you make for next week!

    1. Hey Kassia,
      Your suggestion helped bring it to life! I have always wanted to try make the Everyday Kitchens Cinnamon Buns. The boys in my house rated them a 8 out of 10, so I would say they were successful. I already have in mind what I want to make, I am hopeful to find more local recipes to follow!

  2. Hey Shana,

    Those look great! I am not a huge sweets guy but I still wanted to focus on getting better in the kitchen so I chose cooking as the focus of my learning project. Tonight I plan on doing part 1 of my project with a chicken stirfry recipe I found online. I hope it turns out as well as those cinnamon buns did. Good luck with the rest of your project!


    1. Hey Branden,

      I LOVE TO COOK! I hope that you will start enjoying and find it relaxing. I think I love it so much because its my “me” time. I can’t wait to see how the chicken stir fry turned out and all your other recipe’s. I will probably be adding them to my collection. It is hard to think of new meal ideas so I will enjoy seeing what is on your menu!

  3. Shana,
    These look AMAZING! It is only 9am but I am now craving cinnamon buns! Also, I think it is awesome that you could find a local company’s recipe to use. I didn’t realize that Everyday Kitchen released any of their recipes, so thank you for finding that resource and sharing it! Good luck on your next week’s adventure.

  4. Hey Shana! This is me definity not going though your blog trying to find some comments that i made….bah Katia did warn us about this! Anyways hahaha while looking for one of my comments on your blog, I came across this post that I hadn’t read yet! I know that our learning projects are over but if you ever wanted to try and tackle cinnamon buns again I would be more than happy to help you! (though it looks like you’ve got them down pretty good!) I actually used to work for Katie at The Everyday Kitchen (the girl in the tiktok) and we used to bust out hundreds of cinnamon buns bright and early every Monday morning! Let me know if you have any questions or if you’re wanting any tips or tricks and I can try and help you as best I can
