Cinnamon Rolls FAIL!

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

This Cinnamon Rolls recipe has been booked marked for quite a while now.  Since last weekend was a long holiday - I decided to give the recipe a try!  And so, I bought all the ingredients and was really excited to bake the cinnamon rolls!  To be honest, I was more excited for the frosting!  Hahaha..

So there I was, on a hot Monday afternoon - prepping the ingredients.  I thought to myself - it was easy!  I measured every cup, tablespoon and teaspoon.  I mixed everything by hand - and boy was it tiring!

When it came to kneading the dough - I sensed, something was wrong.  The dough wasn't as tough as I thought it would be.  It was actually jelly-ish, and I had a hard time kneading it because it was sticking all over!  I then tried to roll it flat and I was successful.  I put on the filling and when I started to roll it - that was when the FAIL started.  I couldn't roll the damn dough because it was too soft, jelly-ish and breaking!  My Panget even noticed that it was breaking up - he then told me to throw it out and try again.  But you see - I spent at least an hour prepping on it and I didn't want it to go to waste - so I just decided to mix them (the dough and filling) together and throw it in a loaf pan and bake it.  I'm sure it'll be alright - hahaha!

And so I waited for 20 minutes.  I left it to bake and when I came back, the kitchen (and the whole house) smelled sooooo cinnamon-ny!! :) 

And here is what happened, the Cinnamon Rolls turned into a Cinnamon Loaf!

I think what I did wrong was use Cake Flour instead of the ordinary APF.  But it still tasted good!  I like the flaky-ness.

I didn't make the frosting anymore.  I have yet to try to make it! 

Next time.
