Happy Monday! I have exciting stuff for you today!
Red Star Yeast recently released their newest product: PLATINUM Superior Baking Yeast!
And I am here to tell you that it is fantastic! It’s easy, easy, easy to use and has dough strengtheners in it which increases the oven spring. The oven spring is what sold me on it. This altitude I’m at is so tricky sometimes and lately all my yeast projects have risen fine but then collapsed in once I put them in the oven – I am happy to report that these cinnamon rolls sprung up like they’re supposed to! Yay!
The other thing that caught my attention about Platinum is that it’s particularly effective in making whole grain recipes light and larger in volume. If you’ve ever made a whole grain recipe at home you know that they can be a bit heavy but not with Platinum! Check out this video for more info on Platinum!
These cinnamon rolls, which also comes from Red Star Yeast, are gooey and delicious and made a great weekend breakfast. I made a quick icing with some powdered sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla bean paste because cinnamon rolls just aren’t cinnamon rolls without an icing on top.
And the giveaway?!
