Pumpkin Spice Baileys Glaze for Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns

Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns

I’m freshly back from a trip to Norway, and I may have eaten my body weight in cinnamon buns. They were completely different to the ones I’m about to post about, but I thought it was relevant. I’m going to be trying to find a recipe for one of them soon, so keep your eyes out for that. In the meantime, this is an updated recipe to something I baked a year ago, and while pumpkins are still in season (yup, they don’t disappear after Halloween) I felt that it was a great time to stick this together. The cinnamon bun recipe itself is the same as the first one, I just didn’t roll it as thin and changed the glaze, from the maple to something slightly different. I stirred through a decent helping of the new Baileys Pumpkin Spice to give it a bit of a kick. The pumpkin spice, unsurprisingly, goes well with the pumpkin in the buns and the cinnamon that’s running through them.

Strawberry Glazed Doughnuts

Here comes that chant again; Doughnuts, Doughnuts, Doughnuts. I realised it had been too long since the last time I cracked out my doughnut baking tray and I wanted to give a strawberry glaze a go for that classic pink glazed ring doughnut. When my friend Char (across at Dino Princess Char) was posting about some problems and not being too happy I took the chance to send her a Cake Care Package to try and cheer her up. It was the perfect opportunity for me to crack out the dinosaur sprinkles my friend Naomi gave me for my birthday, and it gave me a chance to channel my inner Jurassic Park fan (I’ve still not seen the new one, so no spoilers please).
