I’ve been looking forward to make this recipe, since I first saw it and promise myself I would do it after uni was less busy. This afternoon I started making these cinnamon buns and we finally got to enjoy them tonight. I didn’t realise they were going to take so long to make, but it was worth it. The original recipe can be found here, Sweet Potato and Pecan Cinnamon Buns with Maple Glaze. The recipe is very easy to follow and pretty simple to make.
I didn’t use bread flour, I used plain flour, which was a big mistake. Although mine were still good, they did not have the fluffy texture of bread and barely rose. I thought the yeast would make them bread-like, but clearly it didn’t. I have never used bread flour or cake flour before. They have started appearing in the supermarket, so I think I better buy some if I intend trying something like this again. I only other thing I did differently was used walnuts, instead since I didn’t have any Pecans. Other then that everyone loved them.
