CINNAMON ROLL BREAD LOAF

March 21, 2020
A slice or  of this Cinnamon Roll Bread Loaf will pride you with its softness. slightly candy and very sensitive, this bread recipe is virtually a keeper.

So, Cinnamon Roll Bread Loaf. Any other addition to our growing listing of bread recipes. My favorite about it is that it is so smooth, it's far well sweet and it is braided. I like braided breads. It's miles maybe simply the handiest artsy aspect that I will show off.

Not to say that I am no longer rocking it absolutely. It is simply that with bread dough, it will constantly turn out fantastically irrespective of how imperfect the braiding is.

And also you get to have heat, sparkling bread ultimately. Candy, buttery cinnamon notes  in each gentle slice, this Cinnamon Roll Bread loaf is a dream.

CINNAMON ROLL BREAD LOAF

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1/4 cup warm water 105-115 F
  • 2 and 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm milk 100-115 F
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

For the Filling :

  • 1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

For Finishing :

  • 1 tbsp melted butter

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. In a large mixing bowl. combine yeast and warm water. Let this mixture stand until foamy or thick, about 5 minutes. Add warm milk, melted butter, egg, sugar, and salt. Mix everything with a wooden spoon.
  2. Add 3 cups of flour, one cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. The mixture will be a shaggy, sticky dough. Add a little bit of the remaining flour and stir, sprinkling about a tablespoon at a time just until the dough gathers in the center of the bowl. You will not need all of the remaining flour.
  3. On a lightly floured board, turn the dough over and knead for about 6-12 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. Shape the dough into a ball and place it in a bowl. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise for 1 and 1/2 hours, or until the size is doubled.
  4. Gently deflate the risen dough. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 10x18 inches rectangle. Spread melted butter all over using a brush. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and sprinkle all over the dough. Starting on the short edge of the rectangle, roll the dough into a tight log.
  5. Turn the log so that it is vertically facing you. Using a sharp knife, cut the log vertically, starting from about an inch into the top end, splitting the log into two halves. Twist each of the cut logs so that the cut sides are facing up. Braid the dough by placing one over the other and repeating until you reach the end of the log. Tuck the ends under to seal.
  6. Gently transfer the dough into a large baking tray that is lined with parchment paper. Cover it loosely and let it rise for about an hour, or until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake the loaf for 18-20 minutes, or until the loaf is golden. Brush the top with melted butter.

PUMPKIN WAFFLES WITH MAPLE CASHEW CREAM

February 20, 2020
Wake up to those vegan Pumpkin Waffles with Maple Cashew Cream. Spiced to a T and slathered in sweet, creamy, custard, these vegan waffles are the right autumnal breakfast for the entire family.

I have quite few pumpkin recipes on the blog. There's the pumpkin bread with candied pecans, the simplest pumpkin muffins, the even better cheese swirl pumpkin muffins, and in fact , pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. But one among the primary pumpkin food I ever made for this blog has long ago been lost within the archives and it had been time to revive them.

PUMPKIN WAFFLES WITH MAPLE CASHEW CREAM
PUMPKIN WAFFLES WITH MAPLE CASHEW CREAM

Getting a good cook on your waffles is crucial. You would like to urge each side of the waffles lightly golden and crispy while ensuring that the middle is cooked. this will be difficult so it’s important to urge a high-quality waffle maker to try to to the work.

High-quality doesn't necessarily mean expensive. Good waffle makers are fairly affordable and if you don’t have one yet, I highly recommend you get one. 

With the proper waffle maker, I can make these waffles perfect whenever. meaning I don’t need to worry about the waffles burning or cooking unevenly.

EASY HOMEMADE NAAN BREAD

January 31, 2020
Easy Homemade Naan Bread is a simple Indian flatbread that's yeast-free and comes with flavor options.

Delicious plain, but even better once you can add something as simple as sesame seeds or jazz-up the flavour up by adding chopped garlic and herbs.

EASY HOMEMADE NAAN BREAD
EASY HOMEMADE NAAN BREAD

If you’re a curry fan (and you recognize I am) you absolutely need to serve a side of naan bread because you would like to mop up all the delicious sauce. Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Madras and Butter Chicken are my favorites.

As i discussed , this is often a yeast-free naan. you'll say that bread needs yeast to rise and be light and fluffy, but I don’t think this needs it and without the yeast, it’s faster to form. The bicarbonate of soda helps the dough get the distinct bubbles, the yogurt and leaven makes the bread tender.

EASY HOMEMADE NAAN BREAD

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup (32 grams) plain yogurt, room temperature
  • 1 cup (120 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ¼ to ⅓ cup (59 to 78 ml) water

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. To mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt, mix. Add the yogurt, sugar and oil. Start mixing with a fork and add a little water and mix until the dough forms a ball. Use as much water as you need to, you don't want it sticky.
  2. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until the dough is soft and stretchy.
  3. Rub the inside of the mixing bowl with a little oil. Place the dough in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a towel. Place in the oven (without turning it on) or a warm space for 30 minutes until the dough has increased in size.
  4. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Divide the dough into 4 equal balls. Roll out the dough into an long oval, teardrop shape. The dough should be soft and not sticky so you may not need flour for this. Sprinkle lightly with flour if you need it.
  5. When the pan is hot, carefully place the dough into the pan. Allow to cook until you start to see bubbles, 2-3 minutes. Use a large spatula to lift up an edge to check the underside, the bubbles should be very browned on the bottom. Flip the bread over, cover with a lid or foil and cook until the other side is browned, about another 1-2 minutes.

EASY BUTTERMILK WAFFLES

January 23, 2020
Trial and error has finally lead me here, to the simplest buttermilk waffle recipe— golden brown and crispy on the surface , but soft and cakey on the within , all because of a secret ingredient you have already got in your pantry.

Are you on team waffle or team pancake? I even have real trouble picking sides, but if I absolutely had to, I’d probably pick waffles. Sure, they’re a touch more work but I feel it’s worthwhile. They’re just more special! And when they’re done right, with crispy edges and soft centers, there’s just nothing better on a lazy morning.

EASY BUTTERMILK WAFFLES

These waffles really are the best! And thave such incredible flavor all on their own because of the vanilla and buttermilk within the batter, but I still recommend piling them high with aaalll the toppings. 

Heidi of Foodiecrush first clued me in and that I owe her such a lot due to it. The cornstarch helps combat the matter of an excessive amount of moisture, which prevents the waffles from crisping up. But a touch cornstarch within the batter and boom! Super crispy waffles with soft moist centers.

EASY BUTTERMILK WAFFLES

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch (28 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (180 grams)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (50 grams)
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk (295 ml)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (113 grams), melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla. Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  2. Preheat a waffle maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Grease with non-stick spray if necessary. Pour scant 1 cup batter into the hot waffle maker (1/2 cup for smaller waffle irons). Cook until golden brown (this was about 5-6 minutes in my waffle iron.)
  3. Serve immediately, or keep warm in a 200 degree F oven in a single-layer.

No one would ever guess this pumpkin bread is vegan. It’s so moist, fluffy, sweet and perfectly spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. The bread slices beautifully once cooled, and it tastes better than the favored Starbucks pumpkin bread. I’m not kidding thereon one, I had several people tell me it had been better than Starbucks once they ate it!

HOMEMADE EGG FOO YOUNG RECIPE

January 05, 2020
Egg Foo Young Recipe – a bit like your favorite Chinese takeout dish but easily made at home! 

One staple you’ll always find in my refrigerator is eggs— we use them on a day to day for breakfast, lunch and even dinner (see recipe below!).

HOMEMADE EGG FOO YOUNG RECIPE
HOMEMADE EGG FOO YOUNG RECIPE

Now, I can’t claim this as an authentic Egg Foo Young recipe, but it does tastes delicious! I really like that you simply can swap in additional veggies and protein counting on what you've got in your fridge or pantry.

For this particular Egg Foo Young recipe I used shrimp, but it can even as easily be made with pork, chicken, beef, tofu or maybe all veggie!

HOMEMADE EGG FOO YOUNG RECIPE

INGREDIENTS :

  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms chopped
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/2 pound cooked shrimp chopped
  • green onion chopped (for garnish)
  • Beef gravy I used jarred
  • Vegetable oil

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. In a large skillet, saute onions, mushrooms and bean sprouts in vegetable oil. Add shrimp.
  2. Stir in cornstarch and soy sauce.
  3. Add mixture to a bowl with 4 beaten eggs. Stir gently. The ratio should equal more veggies than eggs and should not be too runny. If it is, add additional sauteed vegetables or protein.
  4. In a clean skillet, add enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Add ¼ Egg Foo Young mixture to pan, formed into a pancake shape. Fry Egg Foo Young until the bottom is firm enough to flip.
  5. Cook the other side until egg is firm. Place on a paper towel to absorb oil until ready to serve.
  6. Top with gravy and green onions. Serve with a side of soy sauce.

GINGERBREAD WAFFLES RECIPES

January 01, 2020
Gingerbread Waffles all the delicious molasses and spice flavor of gingerbread cookies, in yummy waffle form. Having Gingerbread Waffles for Christmas breakfast is one among our favourite family holiday traditions.

I am squarely within the 'have them with syrup , OF COURSE' camp, like within the photo above. I mean, just check out that lovely treacle spilling down over the gingerbread-y goodness. Who can resist that??

GINGERBREAD WAFFLES RECIPES
GINGERBREAD WAFFLES RECIPES

The other camp swears by enjoying gingerbread waffles with lemon cheese , like within the photo below. Lemon cheese is tasty, I'll admit that. And that I do love it's bright sunshiny yellow sitting beautifully atop the waffle .

But whichever way you enjoy gingerbread waffles, they're an exquisite Christmas morning treat especially when they're made by an exquisite Mom.

  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 1/2 c. molasses
  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/3 c. shortening, melted

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, ground ginger, and sugar; set aside.
  2. Combine eggs, buttermilk, molasses, and melted shortening, stirring until well blended. Add to flour mixture. Stir until blended.
  3. Cook in a waffle iron, according to the manufacturer's directions. Serve with pure maple syrup or lemon curd.
  4. TRACEY'S NOTES
  5. Waffles can be made ahead and frozen. Thaw and reheat in the oven at 300 degrees for just a few minutes, until they are heated through and the surface is "re-crisped."
  6. I use a deep Belgian waffle maker, but any type of waffle maker will work.
  7. Here's my recipe for homemade lemon curd if you'd like to have lemon curd on your gingerbread waffles.
