App-Generated Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls Recipe


I made a Whole Wheat alternative to the traditional cinnamon roll. Since I like creativity, I tried a recipe generated from which is my site. The set of lower numbers in parentheses is the scaled down version I actually baked. The scaled down version actually took a little longer to rise because I used a scant measure of wet foamy yeast as opposed to sugary water.
