It’s a weekend with family and friends visiting, so my husband is being pressed into service to make cinnamon buns, a family favourite that he established after first making them earlier this year. My husband’s go-to baking bible is The Bread Baker’s Apprentice by Peter Reinhart, and the cinnamon buns, like the crackers I recently profiled, come from here. So good. We’re also making pizzas tomorrow, so it’s going to be a bready day, but we’re up for it.
Tonight is rice pudding (my all time favourite cookbook recipe is Nigel Slater’s 20-minute stovetop pudding, though Dave at The Piggy Market in Ottawa knows I have a serious soft spot for any rice pudding he makes), made for my mum who is visiting. It’s ready now, so I’m off!
Quick note: the cinnamon buns will not be baked in the woodstove, as they are ‘tricky’.
