Confession time. I’m an Alpha Baker, a Bread Baker and an Executive Cookie Maker who is following Weight Watchers. Yes, it’s true. I cannot go through all this without allowing myself one of everything that I bake, so I make allowances as I go. So far, I’ve lost 8.6 lbs in 4 weeks. Not bad, all things considered. I have to admit though, these Caramel Buns have me very concerned. Brioche, cinnamon, raisins, and brown sugar is a very dangerous combo. I forget my name at one sniff. The night before I baked them, I worried that I’d lose control. Then I considered, maybe I should allow myself the insanity; jump off the wagon with full intention. Let go. Wait! I said. Calculate it. Maybe they won’t be so bad. For anyone who knows the Points Program, 1 Caramel Bun (with the caramel) is 9 points. I’d survive 1, mind you, 3 Caramel Buns would equal my entire day’s worth of food in points. I had two and lots of salad for the rest of the day. My husband ate the rest, and still weighs 162 lbs (soaking wet).
