SD cinnamon mini-buns from a great . . .

. . . website recommended by the trailrunner -- thanks carolyn!!!  And a photo of what is left of the buns!

Well my mini buns today were an adaptation of one of the recipes.  I actually used Peter R's base recipe from ABED and used the suggestions on the above cool site. This was a small mix with total flour representing 300 grams. The process involved using about 20% levain, all of the milk and half the flour to build a sponge. Mine was bubbly and ready to mix in 8 hours as opposed to the suggested 12, as it has been warm here FINALLY -- summer in the Bow valley finally mid September.  Oh well, in this country, better late than not at all!

I mixed the rest of flour, salt and sugar and mixed, rest 5 mix again and rest 10.  I followed with 4 S&F's with 10 rest, then 3 S&F's with 30 minutes rest, 1.5 bulk on the counter, then pre-shape, rest and roll it out and fill it.  I brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with about 3 Tbs sugar and 1/2 Tbs cinnamon, then layered n slivered almonds.  Rrrroled it up, sliced and proofed for 1.5 hours. Baked @ 350F convection, 8 & 8, then 3, 3 and 2 minutes turning at the time points.

We glazed with about 4 Tbs icing sugar, 2 Tbs maple syrup, 2 Tbs fresh lemon juice, 2 Tbs water, 1 tps vanilla liquid and zest of half said lemon; cooked it down to a syrup and glazed the warm buns.  Oh my!

Anyhow, thanks carolyn for sharing the sourdough surprises link --  a very cool site!

Regards, Brian

Nice buns :)  They look  scrumptious. I haven't used my SD for cinnamon buns. I use my Challah or my buttermilk bread straight yeast doughs and make 12 rolls per pan using 16 oz of dough. I will have to set aside some SD the next bake and rrrrrrollll and fill and report back. Glad you enjoyed. There are tons of ideas on the site for other uses of SD...endless. caroline

Amazing site!  I just made a much larger starter feed than usual so I can have some 'disgard' to try some new things.  You are right, it is endless . . .

and making mini ones is out of the question - the bigger the better.  I love the filling so much I use the same filling for banana bread or anything else I can get it in.

Nice  Ski!
