#15 Sour Cream Breakfast Buns, p. 14

“The comforting smell of sugar and cinnamon made these buns a customer favorite.” p. 14


Ready to roll some buns!

That is, everything’s in place to start baking.

IMG_0689La mise en place – to reduce stress and some mistakes. Everything to make these treats is right before your eyes.

LEARNING: My follower friends may recall from earlier posts that I have had some technique challenges. Twice, I made “roughly chopped” walnuts by pulverizing them with a hammer in a bag to save time. Both times, I had more walnut dust than small chunks. Well, I did some googling and found out some more appropriate methods. I discovered that doing it correctly was not too hard and yet another kind of boy fun. Cleavering the walnuts was crunchy fun.

IMG_0685 Ready. Set. Oh, the red box? A piece of handmade furniture for a Barbie world that my daughter is making — random.
IMG_0687 Done. Cool, huh?

Needless to say, I mixed it all up. First, in the big mixer (I’ll include that in a picture when a do a “my gadgets” blog post.). Then, I folded in the sour cream. Mmmmmmmmm.

IMG_0690 Tummy yummy.

Got everything ready to pop into the oven.

IMG_0692 Ready for the oven.

NOTE: The recipe says to prepare 18 LARGE muffin cups. I think that the recipe makes 18 standard size muffins. I made 6 large muffins and 6 smaller versions in cool little tartelette pans.

IMG_0696 Looks yummy. Only tummies can tell for sure.

Everything came out looking great. We have yet to take a bite. That is for family and friends later this morning. NUTHER NOTE: The 6 giant muffins in the background stayed in the oven for 30 minutes. The recipe calls for 20-25 minutes, but that was definitely not enough for the big guys. The smaller, tartelette version, stayed in the oven for 20 minutes.

Now it’s off to school. My little do-dads will go up against some stiff competition this morning – doughnuts from Crispy Cream most likely.

Have a great and blessed (and sweet) day!

  1. Tim, the muffins were divine. Moist, not dry. The crumble was a perfect combination of sweet & crunchy (walnuts). Loved that the muffins were over-sized, not standard size so that I was able to savor the flavors more and longer. Truly, truly you are well on your way to becoming a baker extraordinaire! Merci, merci, merci!
