Let’s be real, sometimes baking is a b*tch. What the hell is levain and how many types of flours are there now? Plus, when you’re pau, there’s a hot mess of dishes that need your attention. Why can’t all recipes just call for one cup and one tablespoon of everything?!
However, the comforting aroma of buttery, cinnamon-y rolls baking in your kitchen is oh-so good. Like Christmas morning good. Then there’s that weak-at-the-knees moment when you bite into something that is warm, sinful and rich, and all your worries (of doing the dishes) melt away.
So, what if you could surpass the initial steps and go straight to gooey glory? Well, thanks to a handful of bakeries and grocery shops, you can. Check out the list of places that offer frozen take-and-bakes that are timesaving heroes. Oh, and the delightful scent of something baking will still be there, minus the sweat, stress and mess. And that is sweet success.
