There are so many memories linked with food and that means, there are big expectations when it comes to certain dishes or baked goods. Cinnamon buns fall into this category. I have so many happy memories which are triggered by the smell, texture and taste of cinnamon buns. So, no substitute will do, no sorry excuse of an allergy version. I want the smell, the texture and the taste of a real cinnamon bun. And here it is: My recipe for rich gluten free cinnamon buns which are pretty much like the real deal.
