Rainy day

Very wet here this weekend.  Good for rainbows...

and also good for baking!

I made buttermilk cinnamon rolls this afternoon...

and a couple of loaves of my daily bread to eat with a big pot of soup this evening.

Love your pictures! The closeup of the cinnamon roll is scrumptious. Did you egg wash your loaves to make them so shiny?

No I didn't, but they look like it, don't they?  There is no oil or fats of any kind on or in them... just KA Bread Flour, yeast, salt, and water.  Then half a cup of water in an iron pan to steam them.  Strange.

Isn't it amazing how many things you can make with just flour, yeast, salt, & water? They look perfect and the soup sounds great too. --Pamela

The buttermilk cinnamon rolls look incredibly moist and yummy and the bread look professionally done. Floydm, I wonder if you would like to share your recipe for the cinnamon rolls, thanks,

Sure.  It was basically this recipe,  only instead of melting butter and using whole milk I used buttermilk that I happened to have in the fridge.

Your house must have smelled wonderful!  I just love finding those rainbows - a little lift to the day.

Beautiful photos...everything sounds and looks delicious...I can't resist baked goodies using buttermilk and have to keep the powdered around just in case I run out.  I love the cinnamon rolls without all that fattening butter.
