Daring Bakers' June 2014 Challenge - Cinnamon Rolls (no cinnamon required)

This month the Daring Bakers kept our creativity rolling with cinnamon bun inspired treats. Shelley from C Mom Cook dared us to create our own dough and fill it with any filling we wanted to craft tasty rolled treats, cinnamon not required! The recipe can be found here.

Well, that was fun! I made the rolls with a filling of quark (a kind of curd cheese, common in Switzerland) and cranberries, as I don't care for cinnamon. The dough didn't rise as much as I would have wanted to, but that might have been because I had not quite enough yeast left when I made the rolls. Also, the dough was quite wet so I had to add a lot more flour. I left out the glaze as the rolls were already quite moist from the filling. 

The rolls were delicious nevertheless :-)

  1. I love how creative you were with your filling - quark and cranberry sounds delicious! Thank you so much for baking with me!

  2. Your filling does sound delicious. It's great how many filling options there are to change a classic into something else unexpected. Looks like a great challenge!!
