It might sound silly, but I just cannot bake bread at all. I’ve tried sourdough, brioche, normal sandwich loaves, and they all failed miserably. I followed the recipes meticulously, but the dough didn’t prove right, or I ended up with a doughy, tasteless mess, despite adding plenty of salt, or cocoa powder to my brioche! I just didn’t know where I was going wrong. So, here comes the revelation, I finally cracked bread dough last night. Admittedly, I used packet mix, BUT I didn’t follow the instructions properly, so it just counts as a shortcut right?? The temptation of making cinnamon rolls, which are the epitome of cinnamon heaven, has been calling me for as long as I’ve been baking. Forever frightened of bread dough though, I cowered away, using puff pastry as a poor substitute. Bread dough was the only way I was going to get fluffy, cinnamony goodness – I was going to have to face my fears.
