Cinnamon Rolls

Don’t you love the warmth of cinnamon rolls? That heavenly flavor of cinnamon clubbed with soft bread of the roll. Plus, the crunchy walnuts and a soft glaze on top. It’s the heaven of desserts.

I dared to bake it at home once, given I loved them so much. I haven’t looked back since. I wouldn’t say I make them whenever I want since it takes time to proof the dough but I make them on weekends and they are so easy to make. Or you could also try my Cinnamon donuts as they are amazing as well.
