Whenever Friday nears, I always find myself getting preoccupied about what I’m going to bake for Friday. As of today, I have two things on my mind and I have been doing my research on them. I’m not yet decided what I will finally make, but one thing is for sure. The recipe that is easier for me to execute will be right on my oven.
As of Wednesday, my husband had started to ask me what I’m baking for Friday. I tell you, I’m not the only one that is consumed with baking haha. And that was the night he brought home four pieces of Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. Yum!!!! Please don’t ask me if those babies are gone (grin). I just don’t want to expose how a big p_ g I can be with sweets.
Now, I’m starting to think, maybe I can even learn how to make those sinful cinnamon rolls. It has to be the same gooey dough just like Cinnabon, otherwise I won’t love it as much. Does anyone know of a great recipe that is close to Cinnabon’s?
Prior to living here in the US, I used to love Saint Cinnamon in the Philippines ( a franchise that originated from Toronto, Canada). In fact, one of their first outlet in Manila was the one at the Glorietta Mall in Makati, a stone’s throw away from my office at Procter and Gamble then at 6750(the building) near Makati Shang. We used to hang out a lot and wait for the freshly baked different flavors of cinnamon rolls over a cup of cappucino. Oh, those were the days. Starbucks was not that big yet at that time. My colleagues and I would just cross over from our building to Glorietta and kill time. That is, if we were not busy shopping.
The above location is no longer in existent, as of my last visit to Manila last July as I saw that the place was closed. I did enjoy a lot of the cinnamon rolls on our visit prior to last year’s which was in 2005. My husband loves it as well. I haven’t come across any Saint Cinnamon outlet here in New York, though, I wonder why. Hey, calling on interested businessmen, can you bring the franchise here in New York? I’d be one happy camper if I have access to Saint Cinnamon.
