Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. You don’t deserve this sort of torture. This bread hits all the comfort spots in my soul. I’m sorry and you’re welcome and I love you. Let’s start at the beginning. I did this all without the use of a stand mixer and dough hook. This dough can be made and left to rise , then refrigerated overnight for use in the morning. This is the dough just before it’s left to rise. After the dough has rested and risen for an hour, I knead it in a few tablespoons of flour. This is the part in the bread process where you can wrap the dough and place it in the fridge to rest overnight. I worked with my dough right away. I can’t even deal. I sliced the dough, vertically, into six long strips. After 30 minutes in the oven… oh man…. bread heaven. Makes: one 9x5x3-inch loaf

Easy Cinnamon Roll Muffins Just the thought of cinnamon rolls- warm, gooey, soft, sweet- makes me literally swoon. I love them. If I were a baking superhero (I’m working on it) my weakness would be cinnamon rolls. As much as I love the little devils (and I hate to say this) I hate to bake them. The problem is not the sweet yeast dough or the rolling or the slicing. Nicole at Baking Bites seems the understand my need for instant, yet stubbornly homemade cinnamon roll goodness. I’d like to introduce you to Cinnamon Roll Muffins- add the yeast, subtract the long rising. Imagine my glee when I had cinnamon roll-esque goodness coming out of my oven in well under an hour.

cinnamon honey banana bread No joke, this may be the best loaf of banana bread ever made. Sometimes I buy bananas, even though I know that Chad and I won’t eat them. I do it on purpose, because I know they’ll sit there on our counter and ripen and ripen, until they’re just screaming to be made into banana bread. There are some recipes that are just better than the sum of their parts — and this banana bread is without a doubt better than bananas, honey or cinnamon on their own. In other news, I’m trying to give up caffeine this week — easier said than done, right? What do you guys think? , which is just as terrific as everyone told me it would be. Honey Vanilla Banana Bread 3 large ripe bananas, smashed 5 tbsp melted butter 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup honey 1 tbsp cinnamon 1 egg white 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon baking powder Pinch of salt 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Pumpkin Monkey Bread September 23, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under bread, pumpkin Monkey bread. It’s almost as much fun to say as it is to eat, and with the arrival of autumn, I couldn’t stop thinking about taking my usual recipe and kicking it up a notch with the addition of pumpkin – so, of course, I did. Making monkey bread has always brought with it feelings of nostalgia for me, which makes it one of my favorite sweets to share with family and friends. In fact, the day after I made it, I invited a good friend over so that I could share it with her, along with some apple cider – a lovely way to spend an autumn afternoon, if you ask me! Even though it takes some time to make, most of it is hands-off time – like any yeasted bread, you can leave the dough to rise and go off and do other things while you wait. For the dough: For the coating: 1 cup sugar2 tsp cinnamon3/4 stick butter, melted For the glaze: 2/3 cup powdered sugar2 Tbsp pure maple syrup1-2 tsp milk Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Peanut Butter-Banana Bread Recipe Last week, I had a bowl of browning bananas on the kitchen counter staring me in the face. I was about to make my grandma’s banana bread recipe, which is my all-time favorite, but at the last minute decided to try something new. Next to chocolate, banana might be my next preferred ingredient to eat with peanut butter. As a teenager, I would often eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Within the last year, I started eating a banana alongside a scoop of peanut butter for breakfast on mornings when I’m planning on going for a long walk, or to play tennis (obviously, in the summer!). This is a very simple quick bread recipe, which consists of whisking the dry ingredients in one bowl, the wet ingredients in another, and then folding them together. Whether you have fond family memories that revolve around banana bread, or you simply love the combination of banana and peanut butter, this is a banana bread version that you don’t want to skip! What would your ultimate combination be?
How To Make Croissants [Chocolate Croissants, Pumpkin Spice Croissants, and Cinnamon Sugar Croissants] I hope you’re ready to see a billion underexposed photos of the same exact dough over and over and over again. Please say yes, because you will be rewarded with this. This was a… project. To say the least. I have been dying to try homemade croissants for ages, but after mention of them when I made almond joy scones, I could hardly wait. I have a very nostalgic reason for loving croissants: since I was young, each summer my grandma would always pick up a croissant from the Bread Box Bakery in Boyne City. But I also have a superficial reason for loving croissants: It’s Complicated. Too bad they don’t mention that it takes like 14 hours to really make croissants. I’m not about to tell you “oh! Oh… and I made four flavors of croissants: traditional, chocolate, cinnamon sugar and pumpkin spice. Easy enough… it all starts with some yeast and flour. I know you have all of the ingredients in your kitchen, which means you should probably start right now. No. Then you fold it up like a letter. 1. 2.
Overnight Monkey Bread After her kids were grown and starting to have kids of their own my Mom started the tradition of having everyone over for breakfast Christmas morning. She would make Monkey Bread and have it on the table for everyone to snack on while she whipped up eggs and bacon and pancakes. The sweet little puffy balls coated with cinnamon and sugar would disappear one at a time until before you knew it nothing was left. I was a pretty picky eater growing up and I didn’t love Mom’s Monkey Bread because she always added nuts to it. I’m still not crazy about nuts in baked goods, but I love Monkey Bread. It’s like getting just the best part of a cinnamon roll, the ooey, gooey middle in every bite. So this year in memory of my Mom I decided it was time to serve Monkey Bread on Christmas morning. Ingredients Dough Brown Sugar Coating 1 cup packed light brown sugar 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), melted Glaze 1 cup confectioners' sugar 2 tablespoons milk Directions Notes
Pumpkin Banana Bread For those times when you want to come to the party with a traditional basket of baked goods, try your hand at this seasonal and delicious pumpkin banana bread! It’s not the kind of food you’d eat every day for lunch, but it’s a reasonable option for the times when you want something warm and doughy without the stomachache later. And it’s tasty enough that even your non-Paleo friends might find they prefer it to the usual slew of store-bought cookies and coffee cake. As with any grain-free bread, this one relies on some magic tricks of food science to really make it work, so you’ll want to be cautious if you have to substitute any ingredients. Everything in the list is there to enhance the taste and texture of the bread, so changing the basic ingredients of the dough will inevitably change the result. That doesn’t mean you can’t adjust the recipe at all though: just do it with mix-ins instead of alterations to the dough. PREP: 15 min. COOK: 45 min. Ingredients Preparation
Carrot Pulp Cake with Maple-Orange Cream Cheese Frosting Earlier this year I tried to make a soup out of green apple peels left over from a flurry of apple cake making. I had the best of intentions and, for a brief while, envisioned inventing something splendid. The results (I'm sad to say) were actually quite disastrous. I might even go as far as calling them disgusting. I still have dreams of using my apple peels for something other than filling the trash, but until that day comes, I can at least comfort myself with my ability to use carrot pulp. I bought a juicer a few weeks ago. The thing is that, just like with those apple peels, I was finding myself overcome with guilt at the amount of delicious and nutritious pulp that I was tossing out each day. One thing to note is that the frosting for this is actually a bit runny. Oh, and if you're wondering.
Coffee Cake This is a Southern Living recipe that a friend shared with me. It is a moist and delicious cake with a yummy pecan topping.

How to Make Peanut Butter S'Mores Turnovers Peanut Butter- S’Mores Turnovers I’m not much of a camper. My husband often takes my son on camping trips, and I happily stay behind and thank the gods for our bug-free house, cozy bed and well-stocked kitchen. I always send them off in comfort… marinate a little meat for them to throw on the grill, pack up some convenience foods and bake a few goodies too. When they return from their camping weekends, I hear mostly about the evenings sitting around the campfire. Here’s the How To: Thaw out a box of Puff Pastry, and cut along the fold lines to make 6 large rectangles. Layer 1/4 of a whole graham cracker, a piece of milk chocolate bar and a spoonful of peanut butter on one side of the Puff Pastry. Wet the edges with water (dip your finger in water and gently touch along the edge), fold over the filling ingredients and press edges together. Transfer filled turnovers to a parchment-lined baking sheet, and brush with egg wash. Bake at 400 degrees F. until golden (about 15 minutes).
