Nebraska, where I ate the most delicious cinnamon rolls I've ever eaten in my life! Of course, they're from a store that's only open on Fridays and the last Friday I was there, they were closed and I have thought of those cinnamon rolls every Friday for months. There are no pictures because we kept eating them so fast. But back to my rolls.
here on Sally's Baking Addiction. I subbed in a 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour (Ron Swanson: vegetables is like Siobhan: whole wheat flour. I have way too much of it in my pantry and it makes me itch, and I need to get rid of it before I don't know myself anymore.); brown sugar (I keep forgetting to buy white sugar); and didn't manage to get that last 1/3-1/2 cup of flour into the dough. Around 5:30am, there were rolls rising in my oven and I was finally sleepy enough to fall back asleep. When I woke up a few hours later, it was the perfect time to turn on the oven for these bad boys. For the frosting, I used two tablespoons of maple syrup and one tablespoon of coffee, and it's still a bit sweet (yes, I added some salt.) I don't ever fully frost cinnamon buns as I like to add a little more drizzle on the individual servings. I would use this recipe again, though I'm still experimenting on my desired maple frosting.
And I might be possibly looking up flights to Lincoln, Nebraska, because er mah gawd, those cinnamon rolls.
