IMG_7688_a

Oh yeah, punk?! Well, my recipe’s better than your recipe!

I’m sure at this point in your life pancakes are not anything special, and I understand that. But everyone’s got a different recipe for them and each one has different measurements and wait times and fancy ingredients like whole wheat organic vanilla beet sugar blessed by a lamb with vegan wool.

And you know that at Mamaland Island ain’t nobody got time for dat.

Do you like cookies? Do you like using common household ingredients? Do you like minimal work for maximum desserts? Well, listen up.

Everything you need to make these cookies (yes, all of the 4 ingredients) is probably in your house right at this very moment. “Please, make these cookies,” the ingredients scream, “they’re so delicious. I want to be useful!”

Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls + A Trick to Homemade Buttermilk

I doubt there is any other non-chocolate dessert I love more than cinnamon rolls. A few years ago I also would have told you that if something isn’t chocolate, then it shouldn’t be sweet. Thankfully, I have mostly passed this hurdle, as you can see by recipes such as my Lazy Fruit Shortbread.

There’s actually no anise in this recipe. I just thought they looked pretty.

What? I’ve promised you a trick to homemade buttermilk, you say? But of course. I never buy buttermilk because of this trick, just FYI. Let’s all put the buttermilk industry out of business, shall we?

This all started when I was just innocently looking for a simple recipe for dinner rolls. Nothing too special, I just wanted to make some bread. Eventually, I found the 30 Minute Dinner Rolls recipe on Six Sisters’ Stuff.

Come on, 30 minutes, and you’re not gonna try that? Who hasn’t got 30 minutes for some homemade bread?
