Baking Disaster :(

I am more or less used to kitchen disasters. My cooking does not always give me the perfect result. Who am I kidding, I am happy if what ever I make turns out palatable.

But when it comes to baking, I do get better results. Today, I turned murder 😦 I killed the yeast, apparently. You see, I had this ambitious plan of making cinnamon rolls. It all started when I saw this huge box of cinnamon rolls in Costco. I had to try it out. After hours spent on researching the simplest, difficult-to-mess-up recipe, I zeroed in one. Everything seemed to look fine, until I left the dough to rise. 20 mins and no sign of it rising – at all.

Research tells me that I might have ‘killed’ the yeast with the warm water. I had planned on checking the temp before I poured it in, but, I was in to much of a hurry 😦

It is now one hour, and the dough seems very happy to sit where I left it 😦 No rising, or shining or anything. Do any of you know how to salvage cinnamon rolls which did not rise?
