12 Days of Christmas: Sweet Rolls
Christmas is right around the corner! To celebrate the holidays I'll be making a post every day from now until Christmas! I'll try to make all these posts at least vaguely holiday-themed without being overwhelming.
Christmas is my favorite time of year to bake, so for my first official Christmas post I decided to try out a new recipe. There are usually a lot of guinea pigs around who will be willing to try your experiments.
I recently came upon this wonderful recipe for Sweet Rolls by Rachael Whitaker. She created a recipe to make Sweet Rolls similar to those that can be found in Skyrim. It's so simple and so clever, and I knew I wanted to try them as soon as I saw it.
The recipe is pretty straightforward. The batter was delicious.
Everything went flawlessly until I pulled the cakes out of the oven to cool. There was a blowout.
As you can see here, at least from my experience, the cook time was significantly off. The recipe recommends cooking the cakes for 20 minutes. I found that they needed more like 30-35 minutes before the center began to solidify. This issue was quickly resolved though. I just put them back in the oven. They were beautiful when they came out.
The icing was easy and delicious. When everything came together, they were amazing. Several people remarked on how pretty and delicious the Sweet Rolls were.
I have to say, I was even more impressed with these than I thought I would be. They were so good! And they look just like the ones in Skyrim. I heartily recommend them as a lovely holiday recipe. Check them out!
