Recipe For Cinnamon And Sour Cherry Buns

I had a real blonde moment when I joined Fresh From The Oven and so did not take part in the September challenge. After clearing up what I needed to do, I went to take a look at the October challenge, and it was for cinnamon buns. I had already posted a recipe for them, but this was not going to stop me from taking part. I decided to use the recipe from Things We Make that we were given with the challenge. I think if I were to make them again I would add some cinnamon to the dough and I would use my cinnamon ‘sludge’ from my recipe for the middle. These kept amazingly well and we enjoyed the treat all weekend long. I also did not do the icing but instead made a glaze with jam – and it really worked well. I used sour cherries (notice the dark bits) instead of sultana’s as I do not like sultanas but I should remember to have put them on the edge of the dough and not the middle so that when I rolled them up, they would not have been at the edge.
