How sweet and fluffy you are!

I'm talking about cinnamon rolls not my kitty cat. hee hee.  Since we really didn't get to eat any of the cinnamon rolls I made for the bake sale last week and  my in-laws are coming in to town for the weekend, I thought it would be a nice treat.  I made some last night, with the help of my son.  He really enjoyed punching the dough down after it was done rising.  Anways, he got to roll, sprinkle and cut up slices.  I swear he would've eaten them raw. blah!
These are when we just put them on the baking sheet to rise a second time.
These are after the second rise right before being baked.
The finished product!  Yum.  You could actually eat these without the glaze on top. Maybe a sprinkle of powdered sugar and cinnamon would do if you don't like them too sweet.  The recipe is from Veganomican and are called Maple Sugar Rolls or something like that.  I didn't use the cardamon they call for in the dough but I did add some cinnamon to the brown sugar for the filling. 

I better finish straighting up the house for our guests.  My son will performing at the school talent show tonight, a Metallica guitar medley he put together a couple of days ago.  Yep, nothing like last minute!  Anyways, it should be fun, the 6th graders have a 6 week session of vocals so the instructor is having them perform a Shania Twain song "Man! I feel like a Woman" and the boys have to dress up as girls.  He is not liking this at all but it should be very entertaining. lol! Along with all the other performances tonight.

Have a great weekend and a fun Super Bowl.

  4. Those almost look too good to be true! Each one looks so darn perfect :) I bet they tasted amazing. I've been meaning to make cinnamon buns for ages. I've only ever had one in my vegan life and have always had a craving for more!

  5. that is too funny that the boys have to dress up like girls - i can imagine they're lacking some enthusiasm - ah ha ha! i hope the talent show was super fun! let us know how your son did. :)

    the cinnamon rolls look divine! that's too awesome that you made them again so you, your family, and the in-law could enjoy 'em. mmmmmmmm! i need to be brave an attempt a gluten-free version as i haven't had cinnamon buns on over 2 years. growing up my mom would make calzones a lot and i used to loooooove punching the dough back for her. i can't believe i still remember that. so awesome!
