Well wasn't I a Debbie Downer yesterday. I'm still frustrated, but I found the perfect fix for not being able to workout for a week. Make a dozen or so cinnamon rolls and douse them in ridiculous amounts of ooey-gooey sugary goodness. Smile on my face- problem solved!
So next time you're benched for a few days, have yourself a cinnamon roll.
(Bear with me, I like to bake/cook by look and feel... so my measurements are estimates at best)
In a large bowl, mix together:
1 3/4 cups warm water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 1/2T. yeast
Add 2 1/2 cups of flour.
(I forgot to take a lot of pictures though the next few steps secondary to having really messy hands!)
Add an additional 2 1/2 cups of flour and knead with your hands until combined. Then transfer to floured surface and continue to knead until smooth, adding small amounts of flour as needed. Let sit for 15 minutes. Roll out on floured surface.
Melt a big dollop of butter (official measurement right there) and spread evenly on dough. Shake on large quantities of cinnamon and handfuls of sugar... until it looks right. In hindsight, I would have about quadrupled the amount I used.
Make the frosting by beating together 1 splash milk, a big squirt of vanilla, a wollop of margarine, and heaping cups of powdered sugar (again, super official consistent measuring is totally useless in my kitchen) Spread excessive amounts of said frosting on a roll.
