Apple Cinnamon Rolls

This is a Christmas morning recipe to make for your family so you are not feeling stuck in the kitchen cooking while the family is enjoying the festivities of Christmas.

My picture doesn’t make them look pretty, but they are delicious. One thing with my baking, cooking, and blogging, what you see is what you get. I am what I call raw and honest. I do not just post what looks pretty or what looks or sounds good all the time. Life as well as baking and cooking is sometimes messy. You will get what is real and if this is not so pretty or down right ugly, this is what you see as you continue to follow me.

Ingredients

2 apples (peeled and diced)

Pie Dough

2 1/2 c flour

1/2 c shortening (coconut oil works too)

1 Tbsp flaxseed

dash salt

3/4 cup Cashew milk (any milk of your choice) (add enough milk to make dough sticky)

Cinnamon Sugar

1 c sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

1/8 c flour

Egg Wash

1 egg yolk for white wash

1/2 tsp water

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Peel and dice apples.

Make you cinnamon sugar by mixing sugar, cinnamon, and 1/8 cup of flour together and set to the side.

Mix all remaining dry ingredients together. Cut in the shortening until flakey, add milk a little at a time until dough is sticky.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a long rectangle about 1/8 inch in thickness. White wash with egg mixture and add cinnamon sugar mixture on top of egg wash. Gently roll the dough into a log. Cut into 1 inch rolls and place on parchment paper. If you have any remaining egg wash brush on to each individual roll.

Place in preheated oven and bake for approximately 20 mins or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack and enjoy.

I’m very sorry I didn’t get this posted in time to use it Christmas morning, but it can be used any morning or New Year’s morning as well.

Happy Baking!

Liza’s Banana Bread

25 Days of Christmas

Day 3

This is a super easy recipe to whip together. It is the only banana bread recipe I will use. It is great for a loaf of sweet bread or bake as muffins. It is totally up to you to how you want to bake it. If you choose to bake as muffins, bake at the same temperature as the loaf bread but only bake starting at 25 minutes. Check before removing from the oven to be sure they are done.

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 well ripened bananas
  • 1 c sugar (I use sugar cane granulars)
  • 1/4 c butter (I replace with coconut oil)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • smidge of salt
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed (ground)
  • walnuts (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream together bananas, sugar, egg, butter, and vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda, flaxseed and salt together and add to bananas. Sprinkle with walnuts before baking. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

Disclaimer, this recipe came from a cookbook from back home. It is a small country town cookbook and the recipe owner is Shelley Thompson.

Friday Night Comfort Food

Are You Looking For A Comfort Food Supper?

0653D230-6D2C-485F-8359-A213FDBC0D79

Are you tired and cold from a long winter day of fun, skiing, shoveling, walking, or surfing (if you are in a warm climate)?

I have a “not” healthy supper option for you per my daughter’s craving request.

French Toast with Bacon is what I am going to give you for a choice tonight.

We were effected by the Blizzard of 18’ yesterday so I am tired and sore tonight from the massive amount of shoveling I did.

Normally, we are a traditional Friday night pizza kind of family, but my body was not up to making homemade pizza tonight. However, if you don’t like my choice of French Toast and Bacon, you could go to Pizza for an option. You will find the recipe I would use for Pizza by using the recipe for Pull Apart Pizza. What you would do instead of making it as a Pull Apart Bread, make it into a pie.

I used the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread I posted earlier today for my bread. It was delicious as French Toast.

If you have soon delicious options, feel free to leave what you made in the comments below.

Happy Friday Night Cooking.
