Saigon Cinnamon Rolls

Here’s my latest idea for bringing in the bucks. First, move to a developing country with a large-ish exapt population. Second, buy yeast and an oven. Third, bake lots of western-style treats i.e. whole-grain breads, coffee cakes, cookies, etc. and sell it to homesick expats for a bundle. Genius, right?

Too bad Harvest Baking beat me to it in the Saigon market. Shucks. I could have been a billion-dong-aire.

Since The Astronomer loves baked good with all of his nerdy heart, I gifted him with a month of baked goods a la Harvest Baking for his birthday. This past month, we’ve indulged in coffee cakes, cookies, cinnamon bread and best of all, cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting! By the way, I requested that our batch be trans-fat free. 65,000 VND for three cinnamon rolls is steep-city, but they’re totally worth the monetary and caloric splurge. Look. At. Them.

Harvest Baking is a delivery-only establishment so all orders must be placed online ([email protected]). Do it.

  2. What’s the layer between the cake and the cream cheese? Looks like some Chinese sausage to me but I don’t think it is.
