BBA Challenge: Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

I absolutely love cinnamon rolls. A sweet dough filled with cinnamon & sugar topped with a gooey-sugary glaze--delicious! And as with most homemade food these taste so much better than those cinnamon rolls from the can.

I'm not a fan of raisins or nuts in my rolls, I'm a purist and I love just lots and lots of cinnamon and sugar. And I start eating the roll from the outside and eat in a circle ending with the middle. The middle of the roll has the most cinnamon-sugar filling and so this is my favorite part, and I save that for last bite.

How do you eat your cinnamon roll? And do you like a lot of frosting, just a little or none at all?

If I counted correctly these cinnamon rolls are the 8th bread we are making for the Bread Bakers Apprentice Challenge. I'm a bit behind all the others for the BBA Challenge but I will slowly make my way through all the breads in the book. Cornbread is up next and I'm trying to think of something to serve it with, other than a chili or soup. Any suggestions?

P.S. The recipe for these cinnamon rolls and all the other breads from the BBA Challenge can be found in this wonderful book.

Corn bread tastes good with Jambalaya, too. That's one of the ways we enjoy it the most!
