if so i am completely envious!
on friday's show we decided this weekend i would work with yeast.....omg...working with yeast is so involved!
here is what i made over the past couple of days...
cinnamon buns, bread pudding (i did not make this bread from scratch!) and 5 different pizzas (pizzas were for tonight).
how many calories does one burn when standing in a kitchen for two days straight?
cinnamon buns....i found a recipe online when i searched for cinnabon clone - i made these thinking my mom would like them.
here is the yeast i used.
closeup of the thermometer- the milk had to be 115 degrees.
milk and yeast- bubbles means yeast is active!
butter, eggs, yeast and milk.
dough coming together.
switched to dough hook attachment.
now dough is ready to rise.
it has risen for an hour and a half and is now doubled in size.
making the filling from brown sugar, cinnamon and butter.
i rolled out the dough and filled it.
rolling up the dough.
ready for baking.
out of the oven.
icing- cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar..ummm..yummm!
frosted....they were really good...but, unfortunately, my mother HATED them.
turns out, bunny no longer likes cinnamon...in fact she detests cinnamon... thing is i told her i was making CINNAMON buns and she forgot to mention her recent distaste! so her friends ate them, my kids ate them, my niece ate them, my husband ate them, and i ate one too....
feeling like i had to make something for my mom that she'd actually enjoy, i made her a bread pudding...
i combined eggs, sugar, butter, and a little milk and poured it over cubed challah. i got the recipe from a bakery near me- if he gives me the ok i'll post it later-
and out of the oven.
my mother LOVED the bread pudding. phew!
i'll post the pizza dough and pizzas later.
i had half a beer with grenadine- it's a party day!
