I really am sorry please forgive me for today I bring to you a sinfully decadent breakfast??. These fluffy gooey cinnamon rolls. Oh Cinnamon rollsssss.... ??. They are usually common during the fall months and at the Christmas season. But hey you can have it for breakfast or a snack at whatever season of the year you want.
You need to be in my kitchen right now. Oh not just the kitchen but the whole house is so 'cinnamony' hmmmm talk about oven made potpourri....... I love it. My son is doing his happy dance? currently as I write ???. I sure have his rapt attention now so I can make my house chores' wish and he is at my command.
Talk about the magic lamp in Aladdin. With this cinnamon rolls my wish is my boy's command lol. But seriously they are that good.
So please indulge with caution. Stick to portion sizes which sadly is one ?.
Because it's so good and we want a trim waist line..... don't we all? I can't make this as often as we would love because honestly no one actually sticks to one serving ?
My 'white' Nigerian sis in law got us into this decadent wahala but what are we to do but enjoy. Life is for the living abi?
