I was wandering through a few quilting blogs yesterday and followed a link to a fabulous blog called the Old Red Barn Co.. As I meandered through the latest postings I saw a recipe for Cinnamon Rolls. As soon as I saw the post I knew I had to whip up a batch. So, I ran upstairs, gathered the ingredients and started mixing and kneading the dough. The result was some of the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever eaten if I do say so myself.
Anyone who knows me is aware that one of my favorite things to make in the kitchen are yeast type breads and rolls, so this recipe was right down my alley.
Don’t be afraid to try your hand at yeast dough, jump in and give it a whirl. Two of my best tips are first to have an instant read thermometer and make sure the water used to proof the yeast is around 110 degrees (that always works for me). Secondly, always make sure the yeast is fresh. You can easily tell the freshness of the yeast by checking the date on the package. My rule of thumb is if it’s outdated throw it out. Although I must say that once you try your hand and succeed at baking with yeast dough, you won’t have a problem with outdated yeast. You’ll be whipping up a ton of fresh baked goodies for your family regularly.
