Cinnamon buns for a weekend breakfast

It is Friday and it is time to share a perfect recipe for a weekend breakfast. Autumn days always make me want to spend more time at home and create things with my hands. Baking and drawing seems to be a good choice. My friend  Sewul Kim made this inspiring illustration for the recipe of my sister

and a video of her drawing process. What can be a better motivation for trying both!

Bon Appetite  and have a good weekend!
