My life

Currently feeling a bit overwhelmed and pushed to my limit. Juggling is something I just c don’t wanna do anymore. Between family and my own personal life it has really gotten to be alot. I’m really trying to sort things out but still feel like I’m a mess.

My day at the hospital

Well so far since 4:40a.m I have been induced and I’m very grateful for no pain. …..I mean grateful. I’m still quite scatterbrained and emotionally all over thinking about the big moment when I have my baby. But my excitement cannot be contained for long …. and the final countdown begins

Cinnamon Roll Cake


For the Cake:
2-3/4 cups flour, plus extra for the work surface (divided)
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 envelope instant yeast
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup milk
3 tbsp butter
1 large egg, room temperature
Non-stick cooking spray


For the Filling:
3 tbsp butter, room temperature
2 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar


For the Glaze:
1 cup confectioners sugar, sifted
1 tbsp heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla paste



In a large bowl, sift together the 2-1/4 cups flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. 

Coat a separate large bowl with the non-stick spray.  Also coat a 9” round pie dish.

In a saucepan, combine the water, milk, and butter until simmering.  Stir the mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients.  Then add the egg and stir to combine, adding the reserved 1/2 cup flour only as needed until the dough is soft and has an elastic consistency and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 3-4 minutes, then form it into a ball and place in the greased bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 200-deg.  Once at temperature, turn off the oven but keep the door shut to trap in the heat.

Once rested, roll the dough out into a 15” x 12” rectangle.  Spread the softened butter over the dough.

Combine the cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl, then sprinkle the mixture over the dough.

Using a very sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut the dough into six 2” wide strips. Loosely roll up one strip and place it in the center of the pan. Take the next strip and loosely wrap it around the roll in the center, then repeat with the next strip, and so on, creating concentric circles working out from the center of the pan to the edge.

Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in the preheated oven for 90 minutes.

After the dough doubles in size, remove from the oven and preheat to 350-deg.  Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cake is lightly browned.  (Note: if browning too quickly, cover with tinfoil.)

Once done, allow the cake to cool at room temperature for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, whisk together the confectioners sugar, cream, and vanilla together until smooth, and drizzle over the cooled rolls.
