This looks like a great cake to make from ingredients that most people have in the pantry.

I will definitely give this a try!

I'm baking these again with some tweaks. They're my favorite chocolate chip cookies:

TL--when are you going to put a slice of that on the bus for me? The bus goes between MTRL and OTT every hour...I've made a chocolate variation of that:

It was WONDERFUL and I'm sure it would work without the special pan.

I use this recipe, msmofet. It's great and the rolls are nice and big, just like the bakery ones. I have a kaiser roll cutter, which makes them especially nice-looking. It's tricky to cut them but worth it.

Thank you katie. I used that recipe also and they didn't turn out as light and airy as I hoped. I guess I don't have your talent.

I did the "knot" by hand.

Nice! That is basically the recipe I use, except I don't have a stamp. I roll the dough into a circle and then gather it up....hard to explain, but I take one-fifth of the circle and tuck it in to the center. Then, I flip the rolls over to rise.

Earlier this morning I had considered making a couple of loaves of plain white bread but have decided to make today a lazy day and spend my free time "playing" in my studio.

Besides, my kitties there, Sally and Tumble, will appreciate my company. We had a great day together yesterday, especially since I had the windows wide open to enjoy the fresh air of the beautiful day. Sally had a blast sitting on the windowsill of one of the big front windows. She had quite a busy channel of "birdie TV."

I don't know what I'm going to do out there because I'm stalled on a window treatment project for the living room until I get some more trim, but I'm sure I'll come up with something fun.
