Cinnamon And Sour Cherry Buns

I made Cinnamon And Sour Cherry Buns for Fresh From The Oven.

Today’s inspirational recipe from Lavender and Lime ♥ Cinnamon And Sour Cherry Buns ♥ #LavenderAndLime Share on X

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. Even though I had already posted a recipe for them, 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. 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.

  1. I’m trying really hard not to bake too much lately, I seem to have packed on a couple of extra unwanted kilos. 🙁
    Love the idea of the glaze for a change too.
    Have a great day.

  2. I’ve never seen or thought to use jam in my cinnamon rolls! What a great idea and they look so pretty oozing with the jam! I’m sure your kitchen was filled with an amazing aroma!
