GIMME SOME CINNAMON BUNS

For any of you baking lovers, this is worth a try. You will need:

-Stand mixer or Muscle Power 💪💥

-Bowl, Dough cutter or knife, Measuring cups & utensils 👩‍🍳 👨‍🍳

-Time ⏳ ⏲

Here is my take on “Cinnamon Buns”. Because my mother suffers from an egg allergy, all my recipes are eggless.

Here are the recipe & pics!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Dough:

2 1/4 tsp yeast

4 1/2 AP flour

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup butter

1 cup warm milk

2 eggs or

2tsp Baking powder

2 Table spoons ultra light olive oil

2 Table spoons water

Filling:

1 cup brown sugar

2 1/2 T cinnamon

1/3 cup butter

Icing:

8 oz cream cheese

1/2 cup butter

2 3/4 cups confectioners sugar 

1 tsp vanilla

Pinch of salt

Directions:

Prepare your yeast: on a container place the yeast with 1teaspoon of sugar, add water, enough to cover the yeast, set aside & let yeast activate. Place your flour on your stand mixer with the hook attachment. Add the sugar and mix. In the meantime place your cup of water on the microwave for a minute. Add it to your yeast. Melt your butter, for a minute in the microwave. Add it to your milk & yeast mixture. Finally add the baking powdered, olive oil & water. Once all is mixed add it to your flower and sugar, knead for 5 minutes, place inside a bowl and let it rise for 1 hr or 2.

Once it doubled in size, flatten on a surface dusted with flour, add your butter and filling. Roll the dough cut it, and place it in a baking pan. Let it rise for 1 more hour or until doubled. Once ready bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes or until golden.

While they are being baked, prepare your frosting: soften your butter, add your cream cheese, add the powdered sugar and vanilla.

When buns are ready add the frosting, some of it let the rest once you are ready to serve them!

It has been quite a while since my last post. I am happy to be back into this “blogging” world, even under the current world circumstances. This is what I have been up to this past few months while quarantining: working, reading, baking & enjoying my family!

Hope everyone is safe & sound!

Stay healthy & do not forget to wear a mask!

Yoga Loving ♡

Happy humpday! Today’s post is about my advancement in Yoga. Though there are no crazy backgrounds no special bends I am very proud of these pictures! I have just started doing yoga this year. I have always had back problems and doing yoga was very difficult as I could not reach any of the poses as I was super tight. I always thought that it was due to my body structure; therefore I never reached any yoga pose nor stretches. I never gave it a try as I was not able to handle a basic pose. Instructors would always be a little bit judgmental, my pilates instructor in FL (not the one in NY I love him and miss him dearly!) would always talk to me as if my body had problems, since I had been training for quite some time and I would not improve.

Thanks to Rolfing I am now able to be myself and have been able to practice yoga and improve in Pilates (I have left my previous instructor and I am now with a super good new one). I surprise myself with what I can accomplish. It is only the beginning but I feel really good! Do not let people tell you you cannot do it or if there is something wrong with you! Never feel discourage and always believe in yourself! And if you suffer from what I do I highly recommend you giving Rolfing a try! It has literally transformed my life! It is a type of massage but focusing on putting your muscles back in their place. As we grow old and stress appears in our lives our muscles get tight and Rolfing brings them back to where they are supposed to! I can attest at the benefits it has bring to my life. It turns out I could not reach those poses in Yoga nor improve in Pilates because my muscles were not where they were supposed to be.

Here are the pics!

Happy Wednesday!! mwaa 💋
