    I m not much of a baker, but I saw this recipe and since i have a whole load of flour and yeast just waiting to be used for something and the video got me hungry for cinnamon rolls, i just had to try it. But I was very disappointed with the results and the inability to get any sort of finished product. Hey Gemma I am new to your website and I was just wondering if you have made gluten free Irish soda raisen bread if you have not can you try to make it?
