Wow another beautiful weekend, summer is finally here and what a way to start it with a bang. 🙂 Since my family loved bread, especially chinese sausage rolls, I decided to make some bread again. I saw a recipe from another blogger and found it interesting. The recipe had chunks of chocolate in the rolls. So off I went recreating the recipe.
I first made the dough, proofed it until the dough doubled in size. The warm weather always helped the dough beautifully, think temperature. Once the dough doubled in size, I punched down the dough and proceeded to roll it out. Pecans were toasted and chocolate was chopped next. Butter, cinnamon, sugar, pecans and chocolate were spread on as toppings. As a tip, I used a piece of string for easier cutting. Proof for about another 1/2 hour and bake the rolls at 350 F for about 20 minutes. Honey was then drizzled on top of each bun.
The recipe for Cinnamon Buns can be found here. Mmmmmmm…warm bread with chocolate and toasted pecans. Nothing tastes better than that. This recipe would be a keeper for me. Next time, I might add in some maple sugar and walnuts that way you get a nice maple walnut flavour to the buns as well. Enjoy!!!
