The Ultimate Cinnamon Rolls

The Ultimate Cinnamon Rolls
ul⋅ti⋅mate [uhl-tuh-mit]–adjective 1. last; furthest or farthest; ending a process or series: the ultimate point in a journey 2. maximum; decisive; conclusive: the ultimate authority; the ultimate weapon. 3. basic; fundamental; representing a limit beyond which further progress, as in investigation or analysis is impossible 4. not to be improved upon or surpassed; greatest; unsurpassed: the ultimate recipe; the ultimate cinnamon roll. In every aspect of the word, ultimate is the right descriptor for this recipe. It was the first recipe I have tried for cinnamon rolls and it will likely be the last. I could not imagine wanting anything more out of a cinnamon roll. This perfect bun satisfied each sense: fragrance in through the nose, the variant warm colors, the squish of the fork, the warmth of the soft roll, the sweet cinnamon-y flavor and the sound of silence as you take a moment to revel in its perfection. I found this recipe here and was drawn in by its flexibility.

Sour Cream Corn Pancakes I am not a lover of pancakes, except for The Pioneer Woman’s Sour Cream Pancakes. I don’t hate them, I just don’t love them. I don’t know what it is, I find that most pancakes are too heavy in the morning and if given the choice between pancakes and french toast, french toast will win every time in my book. However earlier this week Smitten Kitchen’s Sweet Corn Pancakes popped into my feed subscription and I was intrigued. Then I thought what if I did a hybrid of sweet corn pancakes and sour cream pancakes, it was one of those “things that make you go hmmmm” (name the band).

An éclair is an oblong shaped pastry made with pâte à choux (choux pastry or pasta choux) and is sometimes filled with cream. Crème pâtissière (crema pasticcera) is my all-time favourite. I could eat a whole bowl in one sitting! Other fillings include sweetened whipped cream or custard.

idaho sunrise (baked eggs and bacon in potato bowls) I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days. Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government. Good grief, I won’t even go there. Instead though, I thought I’d offer my idea of a more comforting alternative. Pasta. When life is good, and when life gets crazy, I turn to pasta. Billowy Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing I was inspired from Teresa at her Northwest Sourdough website to try her sourdough cinnamon rolls pictured there, but the closest actual written recipe I could find to that was her Festive Hawaiian Roll recipe. After studying a lot of other sweet dough recipes and brioche recipes, I decided to make a hybrid dough with what I thought were the best aspects of each, that would also use only sourdough starter as the leavening agent. The main differences from NWSD's recipe is my addition of eggs and buttermilk, plus I added 4 times the amount of butter, bringing the butter content up to 11%, which is still not as high as many sweet doughs and not nearly as high as brioche. This recipe will make about 16-24 large and airy, but rich and tender Cinnamon Rolls.

Caramel Tart-Caramel Tarts-Chocolate Tart-Chocolate Tarts-Pasta Frolla Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Friday, 8th July 2011 When I finally decided on Lemon Meringue Tarts for the holiday weekend I knew I would have to offer another choice because not everyone in my family is a fan of citrus desserts. It didn’t take me too long to decide on the other option because everyone in my family loves chocolate. I decided immediately to pair the chocolate with luscious caramel. I also wanted to add a few different textures and flavours. I present to you pure indulgence, Chocolate-Caramel Tart – crispy, hazelnut sweet short pastry with four layers of goodness – caramel, toasted hazelnuts, dark and milk chocolate ganache, and milk chocolate glaze.

Japanese Strawberry Shortcake, Recipe Japanese Strawberry Shortcake The Japanese do some amazing things with cake and pastry. They have embraced many Western desserts and made them uniquely their own in many ways. I love a good Japanese sponge cake—moist, light and airy, and not overly sweet. A while back I received an email from Eliane, an LFM reader, who asked me to share a Japanese sponge cake recipe.
