Cinnabon Rolls.


Hello everybody.
Sorry for the delay but it was such a busy day,we even had lunch which was Moussaka very late.

Today’s order was for my cousin and neighbor,quesadillas and cinnabon rolls. Doing them for the first time and recipe from the net with some alterations specially in the glaze ingredients cause it contained too much sugar.


Extra dough turned into orange buttons, simple knots with marmalade on top, these were amazing.

Doughnuts 💝



Hello again.

Been craving homemade doughnuts for a while but not in the mood for frying or honestly no need for extra calories these days.

But today I thought what the heck, never keep something nagging at the back of your head, so I took out this very old recipe that might be my grandma’s by the way and made them, small amount but worth it.

Ingredients and method :
* 1/2 cup warm water.
* 1 tsp instant yeast.
* 2 tablespoons sugar.
* 3/4 cup warm milk.
* 1 tablespoon butter.
* 1 large egg.
* pinch of salt.
* 2 1/2- 3 cups flour.

* mix water, yeast, sugar, milk together till a bit frothy then add rest of ingredients.
* knead well for 5 minutes then leave to rest and rise for 1 hour.
* flour your kitchen surface well then roll the dough  somewhat thick
* using the cutter size you like cut the dough to circles then punch them in the middle with a smaller size cutter.
* leave to rise again then deep fry in well heated oil.
* decorate with anything you prefer, glaze, chocolate, strawberry syrup or simply caster sugar and cinnamon.

A bit extra work but worth every bite.
