Valentine Buns in the Oven

I made FavoriteBoy a special Valentine's breakfast - cinnamon buns! This was my first attempt at making them. I used this recipe with a few adaptations. I actually made the buns last night and let them do their second rise overnight. They got beautifully puffy that way, and all I had to do this morning was preheat the oven, make the glaze, bake them, and spread the icing.

I tried one, and while I objectively think they turned out well, I still can't understand why anyone would want to consume that much sticky, sugary sweetness for breakfast. Not everyone shares this point of view; FavoriteBoy ate four of them in rapid succession and deemed me "the best wife anyone's ever had!"


  1. I agree with you Sarah - who wants all that sticky sugary sweetness? Eric had lots of fun making cinnamon rolls at Christmas, and he was nice enough to always include one or two plain rolls for me (without the frosting)... those taste much better to me. Aunt Sharan

  2. Clearly, at the next family get-together, you'll need to make these, Sarah. But we'll have one pan for the females (sans icing) and one pan for those excessive males (slathered in icing)! Sounds good to me!

    Love you,
