    I sometimes shove a whole piece of toast in my mouth and then take a bite of butter because I'm too lazy to spread it. I'll put making these things on my bucket list somewhere between learning to play the flugelhorn and pushing a peanut across India with my nose.

    I appreciate how Bon Appétit hasn't fallen into the buzzfeed-style of cooking videos. Keeping it classy and informative.

    +nickkingofearth "Worth It" deserves an exception

    Yes and it's not like 30 seconds long so i dont have to stop the video every 0.5 seconds or slow the video down.

    Omg please make a gourmet moon cake

  • Zamazardde X  (Jan 23, 2019))

    How is that not already gourmet???

  • Nhật Phạm  (Jul 7, 2018))

    pfft, mooncake are always "gourmet". just the sugar water(to make the dough) along took one or two months to make, and the making of the cake took days

  • Nicholas Archer  (Jun 1, 2017))

    Man this comment section is cancer, people bitching about how much work it is and the butter/sugar content, as well as anything else under the sun. This recipe is comprehensive, well thought out, works on a lot of levels, and in all honestly could even be described as objectively correct. People want the results without putting in the work, guess what everything is work. Good job on the video and you have a new subscriber, i look forward to more content like this in the future.

  • Huggy Bear  (Nov 20, 2018))

    archertrades Well, a person can plan ahead of time and spend 5 hrs preparing the D'Oh the night before, or they can buy Lovin' Fresh cinnamon rolls at the store and have them done in 20 minutes. Nothing beats homemade, but most people are too lazy to find that out.

  • Snarky Noonan  (Oct 4, 2018))

    Yeah, if you want to dia-bee-tus! lul

    News flash: pastries/desserts aren't known for being healthy. That's like going to McDonald's and being appalled that their burgers aren't made with real meat. This is a basic pastry recipe and personally, as a person who's grandparents were professional candy/pastry makers, the amount of sugar and butter doesn't surprise me. If you only knew how much butter goes into croissants then you'd shit your pants.

  • 陈嘉鸿  (Jan 27, 2019))

    I’ve been really interested in baking and cooking recently, but whenever my parents see how much butter and sugar ACTUALLY goes into the things I make, they get disgusted, when in reality I normally make it so that there’s a reduced amount of these ingredients when I make them. Regardless, I normally make them for my friends but it’s still frustrating when they say these things and still go out to buy different kinds of pastries and desserts without realizing that they probably have tons of fats and ca...

  • Tommy Crump  (Oct 19, 2018))

    +Mara Nostas they aren't even divorced, he was saying there is always divorce like its his choice to think Brad would divorce his wife, also shipping real life people who are not in a relationship is super weird af, even if you see any sign that they like eachother in that way, Brad is Married has two sons and Claire for all we know is either a l;esbian or has a boyfriend or husband herself, im so tired of going on these videos and seeing people ship Brad and Claire in the comments, wanna ship people t...

  • Tommy Crump  (Oct 19, 2018))

    +Shawn Thomas uhh not to be rude, but thats really bad of you to say, like shipping real life people is weird, like just because two people mention eachother sometimes dont mean they belong together, they're just very good friends and share an interest in cooking as their job, like would you really like Brad and his wife to divorce just so he could go out with Claire, think how you would feel if you had a girlfriend and strangers were shipping you with someone you were friends with and saying stuff you...

  • ybunnygurl  (Jul 27, 2017))

    This is no were near the amount of butter that my neighbor adds to her morning buns; she also has more sugar and she's a French pastry chef. So all these people complaining obviously don't pay attention to how much sugar and fat is in food they eat!

  • Tamlan Dipper  (May 24, 2018))

    ybunnygurl - Agreed. It's either fat or wax. It has just occurred to me that the problem we developed nations have isn't butter or sugar, it's really all the penny-pinching alternatives.

  • pecoswild  (Jun 17, 2017))

    So I requested these from my wife for my Father's Day breakfast (celebrated on Saturday). Everyone loved these morning buns. They are not cinnamon rolls and cannot really compare but are delicious still. For those that say they are so bad, that's why they are not eaten every day! Make them on a special day. Anyway, I'd recommend them. They are work, as are cinnamon rolls, but worth it just the same. I liked the honey, citrus-y taste and they were lighter than cinnamon rolls but still buttery. Thu...

  • LeavingIt Blank  (Feb 10, 2019))

    I'm used to morning buns that are more crispy/flaky, but she called these "doughy", and the recipe is for an enriched bread dough. Considering that and how they turned out, I'm wondering how these are different from cinnamon rolls, aside from not being as sweet.

  • Blossomness Studios  (Feb 12, 2019))

    We all need life goals. Now one of mine is to be a more sophisticated cinnamon bun.
