CINNAMON LAMB CURLS: Cute Cinnamon Rolls for Easter

Everyone seems to be doing a lot of baking while they're Sheltered-in-Place. With Easter coming up this weekend, I thought I'd revisit one of my all time favorite Cinnamon roll recipes: Cinnamon Lamb Curls. This is perfect for Easter Brunch ... or for a Rite of Spring luncheon. It's such a fun variation on traditional Cinnamon Rolls. Theses not only taste great but look terrific for the holiday! You can share virtually over zoom and enjoy the fruit (or cinnamon) of your labor! I'm waiting for yeast to arrive, but I know what I'm making!

This "Cinnamon Lamb Curls" recipe is from Bread Sculpture: The Edible Art by Ann Wiseman (101 Productions, 1975). And, yes, the stains on the page are mine. The book is a wonderful source for lots of other bread baking, as well. All kinds of tips on dough, bread making, tools, and sculpting bread. If you do an Internet search, you'll probably find a copy of this out of print book. It's a great asset on my shelf. Scroll down for a Chocolate/Cinnamon Alternative to the filling!

And, since this is a chocolate blog, here's a chocolate/cinnamon alternative to the filling in the recipe.


Spread this on the dough before cutting and baking.
Where the recipe says "Spread with butter & brown sugar and cinnamon".. you can substitute:
Unsalted butter, room temp (as in recipe)
Then sprinkle with a mix of:
Granulated white sugar
Dark chocolate, chopped fine
Ground cinnamon
