For this week, I had made one goal, and one goal only, and that was to get my dough to rise! For some of you it may sound silly but I have never been able to get my dough to rise properly and be light and fluffy. Instead, it is ALWAYS dense and heavy until now.
I have used the same recipe every time I have attempted to make them and to my luck, it worked the one time I needed it to. I use the recipe from Tasty and watched the video as it seemed to help a lot with what the dough and everything was supposed to look like in each step.
This is what the dough looked after I combined all of the ingredients together but before I had let it rise.
Me being me, I forgot to take a picture of the dough after I had let it rise. The recipe says to let it rise for an hour but this time I had let it rise in for about two hours or until it has more then doubled. Another thing that I had found to help is turning on your oven for a little while, just until it is warm, and then setting the dough in there to rise.
After I have put the brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter on, I continue to roll it up loosely then cut it with a serrated. After that I place them in a well buttered pan with brown sugar sprinkled on the bottom and then spread a little bit of butter on each bun. Once they are formed, I pop them back in the warmed up oven to rise for another hour or so.
Here is the cinnamon buns after they were rising in the oven for an hour and a half. All of the spaces in the pan were now filled and they had almost doubled in size.
Here is what my cinnamon buns looked like after I took them out of the oven. Nice golden brown, gooey insides, and a nice glaze on the bottom. Now that is a first for me!
For once my cinnamon buns turned out and I couldn’t be more happy. But there is one thing, I do not know what I did different to make my buns rise… I guess I will have to try making them again soon.
Thank you for tuning it.
