Holiday Bakes with Daphne’s Super Cinnamon Rolls
We are officially in the thick of the holiday season, and the festivities are far from over. One of the best ways for all to come in from the cold and share in this time of giving and community is by baking delicious treats for your friends and family.
We’ve been on the hunt for some of the tastiest treats whipped up around our community of creators.
Earlier this month, we reached out to Daphne, a backyard gardener specializing in small space gardens with a focus on old ways of canning, dehydrating, and scratch cooking. She creates so much right from her very own garden! Check her out on Instagram @fromtheeggplant to see more of what she does.
And for our featured video, we chose Daphne’s Super Cinnamon Rolls that she made in the video below from scratch! Also, she gives us her super secret recipe with ingredients and directions. Enjoy!
