Cinnamon rolls

20160917_181012-480x640

I was made of flour

Mixed with eggs

And  a splash of  milk

A pinch of salt and a drop of oil

Together they became a ball of dough

I was raised for hours

They rolled me very neatly

Into  a thin sheet and sprinkled over

some sugar with a mix of cinnamon

Then carefully rolled together

Into a long roll and cut into six

Placed in a tray

And dumped in the oven

At 180 degrees Celcius for 15 minutes

Together I was baked

Warm and hot was my body

As I lay to cool

Over they drizzle a thick white glaze

That adorned my body

Which was soft and sweet

Together they devoured admiringly

They call me a cinnamon roll

Together

Honeycomb bread

a bread makers poem

The dough was sticky
And made me think
Will this work

Time was tricky
With the weather hot
And the oven on
It was a magic
To my naked eye
To see the sticky
Dough rise high

Making balls
Was smooth as cheese
Watching with a glee
As they shone like a bee

With loads of honey
Ang sugar tomake it runny
A bit of saffron
To make the different

Written by me 😊
