I’ve mentioned before that King Arthur is our very favorite baking supply company. We loyally use their flour, and I’m RARELY a brand snob, so it’s really a testament to a company’s high quality products if I won’t buy any other brand.
Recently, we had the opportunity to put our favorite unbleached all-purpose flour from King Arthur to the test. We got a few AMAZING products from the King Arthur line so that we could make something extra special. We got the following additional products:
- grape seed flour (did you know such a thing existed? It looks SO COOL!)
- buttery sweet dough flavor (turns out, this stuff is a baker’s secret ingredient)
- caramel bits (do I even have to tell that these were awesome?)
- cinnamon filling (such a great shortcut product for various baking projects, especially around the holidays!)
We put all these amazing products together, plus a few other things from our pantry and fridge, and we made King Arthur’s Caramel-Nut Cinnamon Buns. Allow me to show you a few pics of what we, novice bakers, successfully made in our own kitchen.
Did it take a bit more time than making something from a can or a box? Most definitely. Was it worth it? Um, words fail me when I try to articulate how unbelievably amazing these tasted. They were fall-out-of-your-chair good. The kind of thing that if you had paid a steep price for at a restaurant for you would have declared, “Worth it!” after taking the first bite. And I have no doubts whatsoever that using these high quality ingredients is exactly what set these cinnamon buns apart from anything else I’ve ever tried. King Arthur products won’t make themselves, but they give you the right tools for success in the kitchen, even if you aren’t the type to make homemade cinnamon buns!
So, on to that surprise announcement. And yes, the cinnamon buns are your clue! I’ve been doing some extra special baking, myself, over the past few months, and I’m delighted to tell you that I, too, have a bun in my oven! 🙂 We have just finished our first trimester and I’m eagerly awaiting the end of the morning (ALL DAY) sickness.
