Traditions are one of the most important things we remember from our childhood. As a parent I am always trying to create opportunities for my own kids to establish their childhood traditions. From placing the star on the christmas tree, to deciding on their birthday meals… each little moment creates a taste, feel and lasting memory of their youth.
Our little dudes birthday is coming up quickly and he is already working on the “menu”. Choosing chocolate fondu instead of a birthday cake, and (of course) starting the morning with homemade cinnamon buns.
We are frequent users of our Hamilton Beach Dough and bread maker, using it mostly for dough items, and then finishing them in the oven. One of our favourite recipe is for Bread Machine Cinnamon buns.
With an easy delay timer I am able to prep the dough the night before so it is fresh and ready to be rolled out in the morning. Giving it about 30 minutes to rise before baking, this means I get a bit of a sleep in, and my birthday boy gets the freshest cinnamon buns ever!
This bread machine is also a nice slim fit, storing neatly in our pantry. It is easy to clean, and modern looking with its slick silver finish.
