I started with this recipe.
I then made the following modifications:
- I subbed out 1 1/2 cups of white flour and used whole wheat instead.
- I mixed the sugar, butter, and brown sugar together to make a paste. I added about 1 teaspoon of xanthan gum to the mixture.*
- I sprinkled a few cinnamon flakes* and finely chopped pecans over the bun dough before rolling up.
- I was out of cream cheese so I blended a mixture of soft margarine (three tablespoons? I didn't measure), the juice and zest of half an orange, a splash of vanilla extract and enough icing sugar to make it spreadable (2? 3? cups) to glaze the warm rolls.
