Buns this week on the Great British Bake Off and didn’t everyone make a mess of the technical. It was a tough week and I was sad to see Howard go, I loved his creativity with flavours and wry comments. He was great. Halfway mark now and I’m getting sad that we’re on the downhill run.
I’m not really a sweet bun kind of person. I think if you’re going to go in for something sweet then go hard. I don’t want bread over cake, even if it’s sweetened.
That said, I am partial to a cinnamon bun. I’ve made them a couple of times before so this time I played with recipe a little. I used a recipe from The Primrose Bakery Book but added chopped pecans. I also made a cream cheese icing (cream cheese, icing sugar and a teeny bit of milk) to slather all over them. Yum.
