We have tried a few recipes in the ChefIQ and they have all been fantastic. My kids made a few recipes themselves and they love the guided recipes. They follow along as the app describes, step by step, what to do. There is nothing left to chance, you just need to have the correct ingredients available.

Once your dough has come together you knead it and then roll it out on a cutting board. Brush on some melted butter.

Roll up the dough, then cut it into slices. Place each slice into a springform pan. The ChefIQ did not come with a springform pan. It did come with a steamer pan insert. This 7″ springform pan fit inside the ChefIQ perfectly. Place your sliced cinnamon rolls inside the springform pan and then brush on some melted butter.

The last step is to make the glaze. Drizzle it on elegantly or cover every inch of the cinnamon rolls with the sweet cream cheese frosting. Either way, these cinnamon rolls were delicious. The next recipes we are trying are a Flan, an apple crumble, and a summer Panzanella.
