…or how some things work even when you forget an ingredient….

aga, baking, bread, thermomix

Natasha over at butter baking blog consistently posts beautiful baked goods (I feel dizzy with all the alliteration!) I was so keen to try out her mini cinnamon buns, that I made them today. Please visit her site for the full recipe. Natasha has a wonderful self hosted site so she has amazing menu plug ins – ie you can easily print the recipe!


I made my dough and left it to prove in the thermomix. Just bring the butter, cream, and milk to tepid (37°)in the TM bowl before adding the remaining ingredients. And herein lies the tale! While waiting for the second proving I realised I forgot the egg – oops. They taste great and even though I say it myself they look not bad.

After the second (30 minute) prove, they look like this.

I put in baking oven of aga for 20 minutes and they were done. Her maple icing suggestion is spectacular – go for it!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

    • Indeed! I would say egg is a binding ingredient, so I think the rise and consistency will be better ( especially the day after) when I make them again. Thanks for commenting Nora. Anne
