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

    The only part of buzzfeed I like is tasty but the ones with people not just recipes

    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.

    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.

    Worth to mention is that we in sweden neither really eat much of it, we have our "fika" after lunch where we take like one bun and a coffee

    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.

    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.

    Apps spy on your phones calls and suggests ads to what you were talking about. The Facebook app for example, by default has access to your microphone.

    Me too! I had just finished eating one and I saw this in my recommended!

    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...

    My whhhife!

    I know this comment is old, but can you taste the honey? I want yo try this.

  • ybunnygurl  1 years ago

    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  1 years ago

    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.

  • CuriouslyCory  1 years ago

    Made 12 of the rolls and kept the other half of the dough in the fridge for a few more days. Got curious this morning and sure enough, they make great doughnuts! Cut into 3/4 inch strips and fry in vegetable oil @ 360-375 until golden brown, and toss in cinnamon & sugar!
