It’s 10 pm at night and I’ve just taken cinnamon buns out of the oven. I can also confirm that the house smells of autumnal warmth. If you’re in the southern hemisphere, being engulfed from the warmth feels like the right amount of cosiness, as we head into Autumn.
As I write this post I feel like James Morton from 2 years ago because I’m freaking out about deadlines and made his cinnamon bun recipe instead. Nothing cures stress temporarily than some therapeutic baking, aka slapping(kneading) dough late at night. Making bread or cinnamon buns, in this case, is a great way to release your anger and stress. Have an “ex” someone? Have something you want to postpone? Make cinnamon buns!My buns sure aren’t dainty looking like Donal Skehan’s lovely Swedish ones, as I cut them into ‘James Morton’ sized buns. There was just something very homely looking about James’s giant US sized buns, smothered in cream cheese frosting. If you want to make cinnamon buns of your own here is the link to the recipe.
I’m a lover of discovering new foodie people, so I thought I would have a little short ‘gush over’ section at the bottom of my rambly chit chat posts like this one. Feel free to share new foodie people you love with me too. We can share them together.
My ‘gush over’ person of the month is my rekindled love for James Morton from GBBO. Highly recommend his book ‘How Baking Works’ and ‘Brilliant Bread’, it’s a great coffee table read or something to flick through. The recipes are easy to follow and don’t require fancy gadgets Experienced baker or not, this one will deliver with scrumptious results. James also has a newish book out titled ‘Brew’. I personally don’t drink alcohol, so I’d be the last person to come to for advice on alcoholic beverages, let alone a book about it. Haha. If you do drink beers and ciders, let me know what you think of it.
