Cinnamon Roll Day. October 4th. I'm in.
They're basically rolled up leavened pastry, sweetened and spiced with plenty of sugar and cinnamon and then topped with either a plain drizzle of icing or a thick cream cheese smear. Or you can bake them upside down in a sugary pecan caramel. I love the idea of making a big disposable tray of them and then just wrapping it up and delivering the whole thing.
I'm holding off on making these at home, because I know I'd end up eating most of them. But the next time I have something to bake for, I'm making this recipe, as tried and tested by the Cotton Wife.
In the meantime, you can buy individual cinnamon rolls for 80p in Sainsbury's. Good to know for times of desperation. Like now. Bye!
[I literally can't see the word cinnamon with hearing Cinnamon Girl by Neil Young in my head. Here he is playing it at Hyde Park last year. I was at this gig; watch to the end to see him ABSOLUTELY ROCK IT DOWN TO THE GROUND. I've seen Neil play a few times now and every single time I wander in feeling pretty chilled out and leave feeling completely ROCKED OUT.]
