Cinnamon Bread

We used to have this when I was little. This is definitely an inexpensive meal. Usually I’d beg for it all the time, but usually I received this because we were almost out of food. All it requires is such a small amount of things, which all of these things are things we usually always had. It’s still a favorite of mine.

All you need is a few simple ingredients:

butter

sugar

cinnamon

 bread.

First spread butter on your bread. Don’t be too stingy, but don’t over do it either. Next you add sugar. I actually don’t add a lot to mine. Maybe about half a spoonful. Next you sprinkle on some cinnamon. Again I’m not a huge cinnamon fan, so I’m not one to add a ton on there. Next your going to put it in your oven at 350 degrees and you only do this until your butter is melted. Generally, I take mine out when it’s lightly toasted on the bottom, but if you prefer it more toasty, leave it in. It wont hurt nothing.

Banana Bread

img_2173-e1368934777966.jpg

My son LOVES banana bread. I never put nuts in mine because I have an allergy. What I usually do is change it up a bit. Sometimes I do put chocolate chips in it. Sometimes I do not. It really depends on what I have on hand.  I have made French toast with it before and the kids loved it. This can be a snack for after school too. My littlest one likes to do that with his. You’ll love this recipe.

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 ripe bananas

2 eggs

1/3 cup oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup chopped nuts, optional

1/2 cup chocolate chips, optional

Put bananas in a bowl and smash them with a fork. Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla and mix. Separately, add all dry ingredients to a bowl. Add the dry to liquid and mix. Pour into a bread pan and cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes until done.

French Toast

img_1559.jpg

I love French toast. I prefer French toast over pancakes any day of the week. I don’t know exactly why. I’m thinking it’s because it’s really not a sweet meal unless you add a ton of pancake syrup. Sometimes I use like a teaspoon of syrup, simply because I’m not a sweets fan. Either way, you’re going to love this. Try sprinkling on some powdered sugar!

Eggs

Milk

Butter

Milk

 

I use 2 eggs in a bowl. I add just a little milk. Mix it all together. I put my bread into the mix turned it both sides dipped into the mixture. Put it on the skillet until browned on both sides.

A lil’ bit o’ breakfast

My littlest little bit loves pancakes. It’s literally out of control. I like to take these pancakes and make a bunch and freeze them. Then during the week, he can have them for breakfast.

The best thing about these is that they are not super sweet. I’ve never been a fan of pancakes that are really sweet. I love being able to control the amount of sugar intake. I suggest to give them a try. See how great they are. It’ll be a family favorite for you too!

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

1 egg, beaten

1 1/4 cups buttermilk

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1/3- 1/4 cup sugar

Combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, excluding sugar. In a second bowl combine liquid ingredients, excluding butter. Blend in sugar and butter. Cook in a skillet, making sure to turn once top begins to bubble. Top with any or all of your favorite fruits, chocolate chips, and syrups.

Irish Soda Bread

This is one of my favorites. I love raisins. Usually I make this bread on Saint Patrick’s Day. However, I do love to make this anytime of the year. It’s just so good. I just can’t resist it. It’s best right when it comes out of the oven with a little butter slathered on it. Yummm!

Every time I make this this break my little guy likes to help. He’ll knead it and add stuff to the dough. I love that it’s an opportunity for us to bond and spend time together.  It’s so important that we spend time with our children and teach them how to live life when they are older.

4 C all purpose flour

1/4 C sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 1/4 C buttermilk

1/4 C canola oil

1 C raisins

Mix in a large bowl flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a second bowl combine buttermilk, eggs, and canola oil. In the bowl of flour mix make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk mixture. Add raisins and begin to stir to combine. Cut an x in the top of the bread and bake. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and done through.
