Challah ( makes 4 round loaves or 3 twisted loaves) Updated Sept/18

I’m sure there as many recipes for Challah as there are stars in the sky..well, maybe not quite but really, there are a lot of recipes. And..most people feel that their recipe is the best… and I am sure they are! This recipe is the one I use to make round Challah for Rosh Hashanah… I don’t use this recipe during the year since it makes 4 round loaves or 3 twisted ones. I don’t need that many every week.

Tik Tok Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Cream

I really enjoy looking at food Tik Tok. Some of the things on there I would never make & some I love to try. This Tik Tok “recipe’ is one I thought we all might like! The ingredients are … store-bought cinnamon bun dough in a tube, 1 cup of heavy cream & then you need butter, brown sugar & cinnamon!

There were so many variations of this but I settled on one by the creator @kristie8153. She had amounts posted on her post so I thought that would be a good one to follow. I used less buns then she did, I wanted to try it before really committing & buying 2 tins of cinnamon rolls! As a result of using half the buns, I used half of the ingredients except the cream.

So simple & they turned out delicious! The Tik Tok Pillsbury Cinnamon Buns are very soft & tender! They soak cup the cream! I would make these again, though for the 5 buns I would use less cream, 1/2 cup would be perfect. I had to put them back in the oven for another 20 minutes so the cream dried up and also the buns were browner which I like.

*** These are very sweet! just warning you !!

Here is how to make them

you need

1 – 2 tins of Pillsbury Grande Cinnamon Rolls ( one tin has 5 buns. so depending on how many you want to make )

1/2 to 1 cup heavy cream *** I used 1 cup of cream for 4 buns & it was too wet after 30 minutes covered so I put them back in the oven to cover for another 15 minutes

1/4 or 1/2 cup melted butter

1/3 cup or 2/3 brown sugar

1 tbsp or 2 tbsp cinnamon

Method

Preheat your oven to 350f

  1. Separate the buns in the tub & put them into a large enough baking dish so there is room around them to expand during baking
  2. Pour the cream around the buns
  3. Mix the melted butter, brown sugar & cinnamon together & put on top of the buns
  4. Cover the pan with foil
  5. Bake for 35-30 minutes then uncover the buns & continue cooking until they are as brown as you like them!!
  6. When cooked let cool a but then spread the icing that came in the tub all over the baked cinnamon buns & that is it!!!

Enjoy!

Too much cream here… I used 1 cup… use 1/2 cup for 1 tube of cinnamon buns

Cape Seed Bread

Seedy, slightly sweet & dense, this bread is so delicious. It is good either fresh or toasted. Smear with butter, nut butters, put an egg on it..;.the ways to eat this are endless.

This recipe comes to me from a good friend who got it from a friend..so I have no idea where the original recipe comes from! So I apologize for not giving credit to the original author of the recipe.
