I have a soft spot for cinnamon rolls. Part of it is the flavor - sweet, cinnamon-y, sometimes with that amazing glaze or frosting... Yum. And, how fun is it to unroll it while you eat?! I know, I am kind of a geek that way, but I can't help it! It is fun!
So this month's Sourdough Surprises challenge was exciting to me. I was intrigues by the variety of recipes there were to choose from, some which required very little resting time and some which took a LONG time to proof/sour/rest. I chose one that was a little less time intensive, as time isn't exactly abounding in a house with two little ones and full time working at camp...!
I was a little nervous going into this challenge, as Eve had been left to her own devices on the counter for a bit longer than she should have been. I refreshed her, and she bubbled up nicely, but she still smelled... strong...
I added a lot of extra flour to get my dough to a rolling consistency. It seemed ok:
But I will try again. Eve has been tempered and refreshed with new flour, and I think she is in much better shape now. So hopefully sometime soon you will see a sourdough cinnamon roll success from me!
Check out what the others made this month - theirs turned out so well, it is more incentive to get it right next time!!
