4 Levels of Cinnamon Rolls: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Sep 11, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of cinnamon rolls. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which rolls were the best?
    Check out the level 3 recipe on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/croissant-cinnamon-roll-recipe

    Level 3s cinnamon rolls barely has icing. It's automatically the worst cinnamon rolls there for that.

    American style cinnamon bun is so weird! The dough is nothing without ground cardamom in it. It's must! Butter, sugar and cinnamon inside. Finns make the best cinnamon rolls in the world!
