Black Forest Chocolate Chip Morning Buns - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

in photography •  last year 

Hello my friends!

Black Forest Chocolate Chip Morning Buns (11).jpg

I made something really, really yummy for you that involves yeast and cherries……need I say more? Please tell me you are among the group of awesome peoples on the planet who agree that chocolate and cherries are a match made in heaven. Like, it doesn’t get better than waking up to this yumminess!

So just fyi, “black forest” basically refers to anything chocolate-cherry in case you’ve never heard of it as a flavor before. I don’t remember the first time I heard of it but when I did I fell in love immediately (…..which is what I’m hoping will happen when you taste these!). At the time it seemed like a new thing since I’d never heard of it before then, but apparently it’s from a classic German cake recipe that dates back to like the 20’s, so I guess I just don’t get out much.

All I know is that I heard the name and my brain went straight to a song called The Dark Black Forest that was on a dance dance revolution game that my sisters and I used to have for playstation. My little brothers are major game nerds but I never really got into video gaming much when I was younger. The ones that involve dancing though, those were so much fun to me. We would play them for hours after school with our friends and see who could get the highest score. (I kinda think you have to go and listen to this song now. Just let it play as background music while you finish this post.) Omg, hearing it makes me so happy and nostalgic! I feel like the good games went out of style forever ago, but this one was a classic. Would I sound really old if I said they don’t make em like they uses to?

Speaking of things that have gone out of style, I have to ask …..did flair jeans die? I personally do not like skinny jeans, but that seems to be becoming more and more the mandatory uniform for this decade. I’m already not a big fan of shopping in the first place so the search for good jeans can be frustrating. Sorry for the total side tangent guys, I’m shutting up the babbling, promise.

Some of my trusted taste testers liked these even more than cinnamon rolls, believe it or not! I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned the fact that cinnamon rolls are kind of a huge deal in my family. My mom has made her famous rolls for years and the kiddos usually ask for them for their birthdays instead of cake. The ones who liked these more than cinnamon ones said it was because the bittersweet chocolate and tart cherries help to give it a more balanced level of sweetness, whereas cinnamon rolls tend to be over the top and wind up making you feel like you never want to eat again.

I think they are also the perfect thing for it being Valentine’s Day. One more thing, the awesome thing about this recipe is if you make the dough and let it slowly rise in the fridge overnight it’s a really fast fix for breakfast and the perfect way to show how much you love someone when they wake up to them. I’m telling you, these rolls could win hearts!

Wow. These look so good! And the chocolate frosting on top?! That's gotta be killer. Looks like you used sour cherries?
Funny enough, I've been thinking about putting together some sort of cinnamon bun, but couldn't settle on an idea long enough to actually follow through. lol After seeing these, I think I'll have to make some sort of sticky bun before long.

BTW I think flare jeans are basically done. I've definitely seen loads of bootcut, which would have a smaller flare... though, I have to wonder, with the '90s coming back in full force, how long it'll be before the giant flares are back again. I know I definitely had some pretty sweet bell-bottom flare jeans at the end of the '90s. lol I wonder if I could find any photos of them...

·

the cherries were actually more sweet than tart.

sticky bun, can't wait to see it!

have any bell bottom pics?

That looks delicious! I can only imagine the aroma!

As for the jeans and fashion. You wear exactly what you want to wear. Create your own style and rock it! (You do anyway, I saw your taste in Lisbon - keep doing that!)

I'm delighted to read your blog! Thank you for your great works, friend @gringalicious!

·

hey @olga.maslievich, so good to hear from you

Yummy buns.

·

I want to cry. I have given up processed sugar, and while it certainly has help with my diet, and not being sleepy, it kills me to see cinnamon buns, especially the beautiful ones you photographed. You're killing me! haha

·

thanks so much for the kind words @steventemplar. You can substitute many things for the sugar, by the way

the food looks delicious . I would love to test it. and thank you for sharing this delicious food among us

·

Very welcome @fazlehassan

Oh wow, the colours in that dish (and shots) are just beautiful. Fantastic job on the food and photos.

As if my stomach wasn't rumbling enough already!! This looks absolutely amazing, I bet the kitchen smelt heavenly throughout the baking!

·

thanks so much for the super kind words @gardeningchef

·
·

Thank you for sharing such mouth watering recipes! As a photographer it's inspiring to see food photographed so well, too :) I need to work on my food photography. Much harder than it looks, especially being primarily a landscape photographer!

Giiiiirl, your food photography keeps getting better and better. I don't know how you do it! Love it.

·

so very sweet! Happy to see you at '50.' That was fast, keep it up!

·
·

Thanks for the support!! :-) xx

I loved them. They look super delicious, I'll try to make them this weekend. I join your followers because of this wonder

·

thanks so much for your continued support @universalpro

  ·  last year (edited)

No more food torture, plz ! I'm hungry and probably addicted to great tastes... Well done, excellent presentation and yes its a multi purpose sweet !

·

Thanks so much for the super kind words @giosou

·
·

You are welcome !
(forgot to say I 'm following)

I have to say, your photo staging is top notch @grinralicious. Did you do a photography course? I may have to try and Veganize this recipe. I'd say I should be able to do that handily enough.

As always thanks for a detailed and mouth watering post!

·

super kind words @moonunit, thanks so much. No, I did not take a course, all self taught. Of course I've watched a youtube or two, and read a book or two, but no courses. So glad you liked the staging, not many people notice the hard work

·
·

Well let me just say you have a great eye. Could you recommend any videos or books. My staging leaves a LOT to be desired. All the food tastes great, if I do say so but the pictures just dont do it justice.

deliciousness at its best so wowowoowow :D

·

thanks so much for your continued support @blazing

This is so inspirational for food lovers! Amazing!

·

Thanks so much for your continued support @crissimoes. It is fun watching the progress of the three of you
