Cinnamon Walnut Raisin Rolls

The aroma of buns baking in the oven is simply divine. The whole house would be filled with the smell of freshly baked buns for the whole night...the best aromatherapy for me :))

Each time my Piggies come home, I will bake buns for them to take back for their breakfast and supper and they love it. The best way to make them happy is bake them buns! All I have to do is to pick one basic dough from all my bun recipes, improvise a bit, and a new bun is born! This time, I baked Cinnamon Walnut Raisin Rolls. It was delicious and of course my Piggies were happy when they took in the aroma of cinnamon emanating from the oven, they knew what was coming. Cinnamon is the family favourite. Cinnamon in apple pies and cakes and curries so for this time it is buns/rolls :))

I baked some sausage buns for Piggy boy, for it is his all time favourite and I also baked some garlic butter buns for them both . See , from one simple basic bun dough I created 3 varieties… I love baking buns when I am not stuck to the idiot box :p

Here are the buns/roll I baked for the Piggies over the weekend. Soft, light and delicious buns to satiate their hungry stomach :p The way to my Piggies’ heart is through the stomach…haha very aptly phrased :)) I wished I had baked more so that I could share some with my Piggy Cuz. So , for the time being P C will juz have to drool from her monitor screen :p

brush on the surface of rolled out dough with butter,
sprinkle natural molasses sugar or brown sugar
and cinnamon powder and chopped roasted walnuts
and raisins evenly on the surface

roll into a swiss roll and cut into 6 equal pieces,
place them in greased muffins pan and baked
at 200 ̊ C for 15 minutes till evenly browned

sun tanned gorgeous looking cinnamon walnuts raisin rolls :p

3 varieties of delicious mouth-watering buns/rolls
