I was surprised and smiling from cheek to cheek as I saw those cream puffs rising tall. Kept my fingers crossed and hoped that it doesn’t fall flat after a while. It didn’t and they were still standing firm when I took them out of the oven. I kept staring impatiently for them to cool down and after a while, I held one in my hand.. they were perfect.
Oh cinnamon rolls... I love cinnamon rolls and have never dared to make them because I knew I could eat a whole batch by myself. Enter these goodies that fit into one deep cake pan and are as easy as they are dreamy. These bad boys not only fit in a cake pan, but they only require one rise that makes them very doable. And the dough? It is perfectly sweet and works well with different type of filling like sugar glazed or caramel glazed. This time I decided to keep it plain with no glazed it's just delicious at it is.
Not the type to wear your heart on your sleeve? Then put it on a plate. These heart-shaped cake will please both adults and kids. So go ahead, nourish their bellies, please their palates and let the sweet heart shape reveal how you feel.
