The Cinnamon Roll Disaster

So, I’m always trying out new plant-based recipes but these cinnamon rolls were an astronomical disaster!   The rolls in the above photo are actually baked!!  They still look like raw dough.  Oh.  My.  God.  

Always searching for new recipes on the web

A lovely website I frequent often to get amazing plant based recipes is called Minimalist Baker.   John and Dana are a husband/wife team based in Oregon.  I’ve made several recipes from their site and all were delicious thus far.  I got this recipe for the cinnamon rolls from Dana here,  and her rolls look absolutely scrumptious.  And this is a vegan recipe, so I thought I’d give it a go.

What in the heck did I do wrong?

As you can see in the photo, I did something critically incorrect.  They look like globs of sick cinnamon fingers.  Little piles of tiny looking mountains, with melted, caramelized sugar all over the pan.  As a matter of fact,  my partner and I thought it was so funny, we gave them different mountain names.  The one in the center we named Pike’s Peak because it was big and leaning.

The one in the bottom right hand corner became Mount Everest.

The ruins next to it became McClure Pass near Aspen in Colorado, because it’s know for it’s epic landslides.

My baked goods became baked bads.  These cinnamon buns truly an epic failure on my part.  But…..on the bright side,  after I frosted the ugly things, they actually tasted pretty decent.  So, Dana, I apologize for messing up your glorious, fluffy, tantalizing cinnamon rolls.  Hopefully, in the future,  I can reattempt your creative recipe and possibly get them to look exactly like yours.  

Until next time, have a beautiful day!
