I was up in LA on Good Friday so I was denied my chance to make something hot and crossed, like last years hot crossed scones. Sooo I combined my easter craving for blueberry pancakes with hot crossed buns semi ala Joy The Baker .
The pic is pre-crossing, which I completed with lemon curd AND maple syrup (:.
The recipe can be found here. I subbed the oat flour for regular flour, kept the egg, and sprinkled in currants rather than blueberries (10-12 per cake).
I also cut the recipe in half for 8 pancakes.
They were honestly great. Like cake, so moist and rich I could only eat half the stack. But I’d highly recommend!!
*Insert James Franco Voice* … you will only understand if you have seen Spring Breakers and I strongly hope you have not seen that movie
I might have already posted on this but I cannot stress enough how a poached egg in oatmeal with a little salt, pepper, turmeric is literally the bomb…. literally
counting down the days until I’m back in Spain (:
So. I think I found my new favorite cinnamon roll recipe from hungry gnomes. It’s quick, easy, and delicious like my Keurig coffee maker.
- 1 cup warm milk (Just nuke it)
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons (1 package) active dry yeast
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- Preheat oven to 350
- Add milk, sugar, and yeast to a small bowl, mix and let sit for 10 minutes
- Mix flour, salt, butter, and eggs in medium bowl with dough hook or by hand, to form dough
- Add yeast mix to dough and knead until well combined
- Put the dough into an oiled bowl, cover, and let it rise until it is double in size.
- When the dough is done rising, roll it out on a floured surface until it is about 12 x 16 in and about 1/4-inch thick.
- Mix the cinnamon, sugars, and butter together and spread evenly onto the rolled dough. ( I added my apple sauce juices to the filling and it ended up BOMB)
- Carefully roll the dough along the longest edge and slice into 2 inch slices.
- Place into a baking dish, flat side down. The rolls will double in size while baking so leave some room for expansion.
- Bake for 20-25 min or until golden brown.
If you want, you can always whip up a little glaze with 1 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 cup butter, and slowly add milk to get the right consistence.
Yes. Applesauce. I found a legit recipe online and changed it a bit to my liking.
4 apples; pealed, cored, and sliced
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp cinnamon, 3 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/4 tsp nutmeg
Add all ingredients to sauce pan and cook covered for 15-20 minutes until apples are soft.
Mash or stir into sauce.
See that deliciousness in the pan in the background? I used it for cinnamon roll filling, yeah man iron chef right here ha. Recipe coming soon.
