BBA #7: Cinnamon Rolls and Sticky Buns


For round 7 of the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge I decided I didn't want to choose between making the cinnamon rolls vs the sticky buns because I really love them both. It was easy enough to just cut my log of dough into 12 pieces (just under 1 1/2-inches each roughly) and to bake six as cinnamon rolls and use the other six for sticky buns.


I then made a half batch of the caramel glaze mixture and placed it in the bottom of a 9-inch round pan, placed the rolls, covered, held them in the refrigerator overnight. All I had to do was get up a bit early the next morning and sit them out on the counter for a couple of hours to rise.


While this dough was delicious, and a joy to work with, I really preferred them as the sticky buns because I really didn't particularly care for the lemon zest in the dough. I liked it - but just ok. I wouldn't probably put it in again - though I WILL switch it to orange next time and turn these into orange rolls instead with an orange cream cheese glaze.


The dough was tender, easy to make, easy to work with and the sticky bun glaze was easy to make and really delicious!

I made both, too and enjoyed the sticky buns...did you put a pan under to catch the glaze 'lava'?

Oh! I didn't know you didn't like lemon that much! I will take them if there are any left, hee hee :) I mean, just look at 'em! Perfect! :)

Beautiful job, Holly. Thanks for previewing both versions for me, but really, they both look so good, it's not making my choice any easier. Hat's off to you keeping the Challenge's weekly pace!

Gorgeous! I love how golden brown your cinnamon rolls turned out. I also agree about the orange flavoring - I love the combo of orange and cinnamon. I wish I had just made that substitution to start with.

Leslie said...

I'm sorry, did you say something? I can't focus on anything except those insanely delicious-looking sticky buns!

Vera said...

These sticky buns are calling me! Total perfection, Holly!

Di said...

Mmm, things to look forward to. =) Both the cinnamon rolls and sticky buns look delicious. I've made the cinnamon roll version before, and I think I must have left out the lemon zest, because I don't remember tasting it. Hmm.

Maria said...

Love your buns:) They turned out perfectly!

pinkstripes said...
