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

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!

    Your dough looks quite good without the egg. I wonder if it would make it wetter/stickier as a result?

      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

    But we now know that they’ll turn out fine without an egg 🙂
