This was the first recipe I ever made dough for, and I discovered a surprising thing about myself: I apparently love making dough. Something about kneading it with my hands, thinking about nothing in particular while some Motown plays in the background… it just totally works for me.
I also take pride in this being my most frequently-requested bake, and the one I’m congratulated on most often. In fact, I’ve had at least one person flat-out refuse to believe these swirls (or rolls, or buns; whatever you want to call ’em) are totally free from sugar. And that’s exactly the reaction we want! Natural & healthy, yet deliciously, deceptively decadent enough that you could sell them at Cinnabon™.
These do take a little while longer to prepare, but once your dough is kneaded and proved, the rest is a breeze.
