How to build a Cinnamon Star Bread dessert
Today we made a first trial run of making a star bread. Now this bread concept is made with a sweet danish type dough, without the laminations. The layers come from the building technique. Many different types of filling can be used; nutella is popular, cinnamon and sugar… even pizza! Might have to try that one another day.
I don’t recall where I found this recipe but I know one thing for sure, it makes a near identical recipe to the walnut crunch cake donuts that were commercially available here in Canada. No one knows for sure why its no longer made commercially. Luckily, we have a recipe that will allow people to make them at home.
Jelly roll time
Jelly roll has been on the agenda for a couple weeks now. 🙂 It has been many years since having made one and we didn’t have a recipe.
Homemade Dog Treats
Our favourite pooch is moving away soon. I may have shed a tear. So when we were asked if we wanted to dog sit for the weekend we jumped on it. I mean how can anyone resist this guy:
Mmmm… Sour Cream Cake Donuts
With our office work done for the day, (is it ever?) and rain blowing sideways, we decided to make some cake donuts. A while ago we tried the donuts baked in the oven, even bought the proper pan, but nothing replaces fried donuts. It’s not our first donut rodeo though, we’ve been making these at home for a few years now, and for about 20 years before that in a commercial fryer at our bakery.
Best. Donairs. Ever.
Thats a pretty bold statement but I can back it up. You can’t be from the Maritimes, or to be more specific, from Nova Scotia, if you haven’t had at least one donair in your life. And if you are lucky enough to live here you have probably had many a donair. Too many to count. All you others don’t know what you’re missing. I feel bad for you.
Things were pretty quiet here over the weekend and that’s never a bad thing. It was a little too cold to get to our outdoor projects and also Sunday was my birthday!
Homemade Baked Donuts
On the weekend we decided to try baked donuts. This was more of an experiment than anything. No high expectations at all. While surfing around the internet, I came across a recipe for baked donuts. First thought was, probably not very good. But after reading further I found out it was a thing. Before we could start we had to see if we could find donut pans locally. Low and behold, we did.
Make Your Own Granola Bars
If you have never even considered making your own granola bars, I am going to try and change your mind today. I won’t give you the recipe but a quick search online will give you many options according to your taste. You might say, “But, Gina, I can just go buy some at the grocery store.” And to that I would say, “When you make them yourself you know what’s in them!”
Well, hello. Welcome, if you are new to these parts, and welcome back if you are a regular. We have been keeping ourselves busy and trying to stay out of trouble.
Jim celebrated a birthday on the weekend. That called for chocolate cake of course.
