Brunch is a meal to be savoured: eaten late morning – early afternoon, it's a time to relax with the paper or in the company of friends, and enjoy the indulgence of a leisurely meal. Pots of freshly brewed coffee, bread hot from the oven, eggs, avocado, bacon...however you like to do brunch, The Little Book of Brunch is the perfect accompaniment. Filled with recipes sourced from around the world, it's packed with brilliant brunch ideas from the savoury to the sweet treats.
Warming, comforting and downright delicious, cinnamon rolls are one of the many wonderful recipes to be found in The Little Book of Brunch.
"The Little Book Of Brunch is a collection of recipes for what many consider to be the best meal of the day. But what's the deal with brunch - why is the breakfast-lunch composite so increasingly popular?
Brunch is about simple, unpretentious yet delicious fare. It's a meal that allows you to gorge on bread without being judged (who's to know you're not doing a 10k later?), to be able to cook food for those you love without spending or slaving too much, or simply to treat yourself to a good, nourishing, homemade meal, even if you missed breakfast.
Unlike, say, Sunday lunch, a weekend brunch holds all the promise of the day(s) ahead. It can provide the stomach-lining foundation for afternoons and nights out, or the carb-laced stupor for hours spent lolling on the sofa."

Recipe: Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing
"Somewhere between a sticky bun and an American iced cinnamon roll, these pastries are just as good with builder’s tea as they are with filter coffee.
Bar bacon frying or coffee brewing, there are few things more pleasant or enticing than the smell of cinnamon buns baking, and any annoyance you might have felt at the mild faff of the thing will soon be forgotten as you take your first bite of a just-iced bun."
