Pecan toffee cinnamon swirls – and tangent about how cook books and thunderstorms are connected

These gorgeous bites go out to our American cousins across the pond! In (early) celebration of Thanksgiving, and because my work colleagues are always keen for baked goodies, I decided to make these delicious sticky pecan toffee cinnamon swirls.


Now I don’t want to start any arguments here, so for the Brits amongst us, these are modified Chelsea buns, and for the American’s – cinnamon swirls.


I’m please to say they went down very well at work! I had to take them all into work otherwise Neil and I would be at risk of heart attacks!

I got these out of the Great British Bake Off: Big Book of Baking, which actually has a funny story about it:

Tangent warning* – So on the way back form visiting my parent’s there was horrid weather – I mean terrible: gale force winds, sideways rain, all sorts of things blowing across the motorway. Now I had already done my stint of driving (I hate driving…) and so in my capacity as chief navigator I missed the turning for the M6 so we ended up on the M6 Toll. This however was a really good thing in the end as the rain got to the point where we had to slow down to 30mph on the motorway as we couldn’t see a thing! As the conditions were so dangerous even on the nice empty M6 toll we stopped off at the services – where there was a Smiths, where they had the GBBO book on sale for a fiver… thus bad rain storm = cookery book YAY – Tangent over.


Anywho – these are those pecan toffee cinnamon buns and they are/were tasty!
