How to Make Sourdough Cinnamon Buns
Traditional cinnamon buns rely on lots of butter, sugar, eggs, and sometimes oil or vegetable shortening for their texture and flavor. Sourdough Cinnamon Buns get their flavor and rise from the sourdough process. The buns take longer to make, admittedly, but most of the time is "hands off," rising time. Rather than loads of butter and other bad things, the buns come out soft and fluffy with a minimum of "healthy" fat from canola oil. The buns also are sweetened with a bit of honey. What's inside the buns? Brown sugar, cinnamon, and toasted nuts provide plenty of sweetness and flavor without weighing down the buns and making them "butt" buns. These cinnamon buns are delicious as well as offering the health benefits of sourdough. Try them for a special breakfast or a treat with coffee or tea.
