Can I say DELISH? I have never made cinnamon buns before and now I am wondering what took me so long. This recipe was actually a lot lighter than I imagined, and I doubled the cinnamon to really bring out the spice. I also took the liberty of adding toasted almonds and chopped dates. Phenomenal! Yeastspotting, here I come!

Steve,
I am so glad you stopped by. Since I am participating in the (Bba: BreadBakers Apprentice) challenge I am not supposed to post the recipe from the book. However, someone has already posted the recipe out in the www... here it is:
