Do you ever walk through the mall past one of the Cinnabon places and wish that you could go in and just have one and not feel absolutely awful?
I do… My most favourite treat that I would buy for myself (before food allergies), was a cinnamon bun.
I have made several attempts at cinnamon buns, although eatable were not good enough to post. I think its because I can’t have the yeast. Okay enough being sorry for myself…
Fast forward to this fantastic cake. Full of layers of cinnamon and glaze… mmm.
It is sure to satisfy your cinnamon craving!!
And just think how much healthier it would be for you… 🙂
