Sorry for my lengthy post-valentines day hiatus. The third trimester has made me a little slow in the kitchen and I’ve had my hands full with family. Like my mother, who was in town last week and thinks a day at the spa is a better use of my time than baking (hey, I’m not going to argue). Then we had Mr. Humble’s laptop crashing and needing to be resurrected after the latest Windows 7 service pack, something that makes the Mac user in me smirk with smug hipster superiority.
Mr. Humble (and his laptop) were necessary for today’s post, since we’re using one of his bread recipes. A recipe I’ve been begging… scratch that, demanding he make in recent weeks. You see, I’ve had some pretty crazy pregnant woman cravings for all things creamy. Cheesecakes, eclairs, cream puffs, donuts, and cinnamon rolls topped with pillows of creamy goodness. Knowing that Mr. Humble’s soft, tender enriched white dough makes a beautiful cinnamon roll, I lobbied hard.
Of course, once I actually got my wish for a pan of delicious freshly made cinnamon rolls, I spent more time eating them than photographing them. Thus all I have to accompany this post is a bunch of photos of minimally-staged cinnamon rolls that are in the process of being eaten.
