King Arthur Flour's Dark and Dangerous Cinnamon Buns

[Photograph: Donna Currie]

What Worked: While these wouldn't be considered healthy, if you're going to eat cinnamon buns, you might as well add whole wheat. Except for the color, you'd never know these were whole grain buns.

What Didn't: For my taste, they were a little sweet. On the other hand, no one else who ate them had any such reservations.

Suggested Tweaks: Next time, I might add just a small drizzle of the icing to the buns, and reserve the rest for anyone who wants more. Or, a cream cheese-based icing would be less sweet.
