I love a cinnamon roll. Baker Girl in Great Tew in Oxfordshire is famous for their cinnamon rolls. They are as big as your head and worth the trip to the country-side they are so good. They are the closest thing to an American Cinnabon that I have ever tasted. Our Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal is a healthy alternative – still decadent but easier on the waistline.
Often I have to fly into Chicago O’Hare airport and British Airways always seems to land at the gates where there is a Cinnabon pumping sweet, sugar, flour and butter smells into the corridor. As much as I wish every day could start with a cup of black tea and a cinnamon roll, it is no more likely than ice cream for dinner.
Our baked Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal is an attempt at compromise. All of the flavour of a cinnamon roll as a baked porridge with a bit of icing on top to be just a little sinful. They work best from a muffin tin so that you can see the icing and also control the portions.
