YouTube Channels

Prior to lock down for COVID, I only watched YouTube for the occasional help with embroidery stitches or knitting or something like that. I never really “followed” channels nor did I watch regularly. Now, I am addicted to several channels and watch while I stitch. One of those channels is Webspoon World. There are no words, just videos of baking. I found one video that I really enjoyed, “5 Nifty Tricks With Bread Dough That You’ve Definitely Never Had Before“. I kept coming back to this one and decided I wanted to try some of these. The first one I have dubbed Cinnamon Knots. I had to find a generic bread dough recipe. I have several that we like, but they have a distinct flavor. I wound up using this one.

The dough.

I made the dough and set it on the counter to rise until I was ready to use it. The recipe has it rest for about an hour, but mine sat there for almost 4 hours and almost oozed over the top of the bowl!!

Butter, Brown Sugar. and Cinnamon

Since the video does not provide the recipe for the filling, I just winged it and made up something with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon and made a kind of paste.

Dough Ovals

The first thing is to roll out three ovals of dough.

Cinnamon paste

After rolling out the dough, a thin layer of the cinnamon paste is spooned on. Then another dough oval and another bit of paste and finally the last dough layer is put on top.

Braided

Then each oval pile is cut into three strips, leaving a little bit at the top uncut, and braided. Each braid is rolled up into a ball and placed on a cookie sheet, then brushed with an egg wash and sprinkled with a dusting of sugar. They were baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Fresh out of the oven.

YUMMY!! I will definitely make these again!! I think next time, though, instead of two layers of the paste, I will do one layer of paste and one layer of melted chocolate.
