Bakery We Love: Rosen’s Cinnamon Buns
Food editor Kristen Eppich dishes on Amy Rosen’s new Toronto bakery.
Over the last few years, former House & Home food editor Amy Rosen could be found travelling the world and writing about her amazing finds in food, or working on her cookbook Toronto Cooks. Nowadays, her feet are planted on terra firma in Toronto’s west end at her new bakery, Rosen’s Cinnamon Buns.
I popped in to see Amy on her third official day of business and the joint was hopping. They had sold over 400 buns in the previous two days, and there were no signs of slowing down. While we chatted, the waitlist was growing with customers claiming cinnamon buns still in the oven. The buns are worth waiting for — moist, tender and decadent with the perfect amount of residual goo to satisfy.
The magic to the recipe? According to Amy it’s a “really well-developed recipe” using fresh, simple ingredients. I had decided to only eat half of a bun on my visit. I failed. Amy says that happens a lot.
