Cinnamon rolls with honey instead of "glaze"-what are your thoughts?

Asked by La_chica_gomela (12488 points ) March 4th, 2010

I’m thinking about making cinnamon rolls, but instead of making the traditional glaze of water and powdered sugar, using honey. I don’t really like the taste of powdered sugar glaze or pretty much anything with powdered sugar in it. I’ve seen bakery cinnamon rolls that used high fructose corn syrup to sweeten the glaze, and I find that disgusting as well.

Do you think I should mix the honey with water to make it a little thinner? I’ve done this before over heat, and it’s been successful for other sauces.

Or do you think I should use it as it?

Orange Juice. better still, the peeling of an orange with give them a great flavor and aroma.

@john65pennington: Um…..can you be more specific? I like orange juice too, but I really have no idea what you’re suggesting.

**Orange Glaze***
½ cup sifted powdered sugar
¼ teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
2 tablespoons orange juice (more if needed)

I got that recipe from CD kitchen.

@keobooks: Thanks, but as I said several times in my question, I don’t like the taste of powdered sugar.

@La_chica_gomela Sounds delicious to me. I would think pure honey at normal room temperature would paint on and hold well. A quick toasting on the outside should firm it up enough for handling.

Paint it on when the rolls come out of the oven. I think this version is called Honey Buns.

Honey is never sweet enough (for me).
Unless it is Baklava I am eating. Then it is plenty sweet.

Honey sounds delicious, and is (relatively) healthier, too. I’ll have to try that myself! I agree that you should be able to put it on the rolls straight. It might be tasty to experiment with the spices in the rolls, too, to match the different flavor honey brings: maybe crystallized ginger or something like that would be good.

@john65pennington: Then I guess neither of you read the question.

@angelaclaire: ginger, that sounds like a great idea! I think I’m going to try that too!
