Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls
Chocolate adds the perfect sweet touch to cinnamon rolls, softening both their dough and decadent icing for an unforgettable treat!
This quick and easy vegan chocolate cinnamon roll recipe takes only an hour to prepare! With plant-based milk, no eggs and vegan butter as ingredients, they’re gluten- and nut-free so everyone can enjoy them.
Start by mixing all your ingredients in a large bowl, and kneading until smooth – either by hand or using a stand mixer with the dough hook. Once your dough has reached an elastic texture, let it rest for 15 minutes so the gluten strands can relax and allow it to rise more effectively.
Once the dough is flattened and transferred onto a lightly floured surface, press out any air pockets before rolling it out into a rectangle shape. Spread cocoa cinnamon filling over it using an offset spatula then sprinkle finely chopped chocolate on top for garnish.
If your filling appears too liquidy or soft, place it in the fridge for several minutes so it can thicken up and be spreadable.
Once the dough has risen, it’s time to shape chocolate cinnamon rolls. Either shape it into a ball and refrigerate overnight or shape into individual buns before leaving at room temperature to rise further before baking.
Lemon Ricotta Waffles
These fluffy and tender waffles feature a delicious lemon ricotta mixture for extra fluffy and tender texture, while fresh blueberries add springtime sweetness. Perfect for weekend brunch or special breakfast occasions. Finish it off with blueberry-citrus syrup drizzled on top for extra flair and some generous dollop of whipped cream on the side to complete.
Ricotta makes an excellent addition to baked goods because it adds lightness without imparting an overwhelming cheese taste. Ricotta adds creamy texture and milky richness that pairs beautifully with tart lemon juice and zest for delicious results!
Ricotta ensures that these waffles stay tender and moist even after baking, while cornstarch adds crispiness on the outside. For optimal results, use a one to three ratio of cornstarch to unbleached all-purpose flour in your waffle recipe.
To create the batter, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Next, whisk melted butter with milk, eggs, vanilla and ricotta cheese until well mixed before folding this ricotta cheese mixture into your dry ingredients with only slight stirring necessary – until just blended!
Preheat and spray your waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray before pouring approximately 1/2 to 3/4 cup of batter per well into each well of your waffle iron. Cook until golden-brown and crisp – approximately 4-6 minutes per batch depending on your waffle maker.
Cranberry Sweet Rolls
Cranberry sweet rolls make an excellent addition to any holiday breakfast menu and are simple and straightforward to make – perfect for making ahead!
Cranberry Cranberry Sweet Rolls are delicious treats that can help use up any leftover cranberries after the holidays! Topped with an orange cream cheese icing for an elegant presentation!
These rolls resemble cinnamon rolls but differ by using a unique method to fill and glaze them with cranberry-infused butter mixture instead of traditional cinnamon roll dough. Once complete, these beauties can then be decorated with chopped walnuts as decorative touches!
To create Cranberry Filling, combine cranberries, sugar, orange zest and juice in a medium saucepan on low heat until it reaches jam-like consistency. After stirring in melted butter to this mixture, remove from heat immediately.
Once the cranberry mixture has been chilled, transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow it to rise for at least 30 minutes or until its size doubles.
Once the cranberry mixture has risen, move it onto a lightly floured surface and roll out into a 21×14 rectangle. Spread with cranberry filling leaving a 1/2-inch border all around, gently roll from widest end into cylinder shape & cut 9 equal size rolls before placing onto greased baking sheets to rise again until ready for baking.
Maple Bacon Monkey Bread
Monkey Bread is an American classic dessert and comes in various forms. Most varieties involve creating small balls of dough coated in cinnamon sugar before being baked together in a Bundt pan for baking. Monkey Bread can easily be assembled ahead of time for special event breakfasts and brunches, saving time.
Maple Bacon Monkey Bread recipes offer an easy yet festive take on this timeless treat, featuring crisp crumbled bacon and an irresistibly decadent maple caramel topping! Perfect for any holiday or special event.
Refrigerated cinnamon roll dough balls are coated in butter and cinnamon sugar before being filled with chopped bacon and pecans, then finished off with a maple caramel mixture that seeps into the dough while baking to become gooey and delicious!
After baking your monkey bread, allow it to cool for 10 minutes on a cooling rack before turning it out of its pan. This will ensure that its maple caramel sauce doesn’t harden and stick to the cake!
Before baking, the dough needs to reach room temperature before being put in the oven. Either thaw it out in the refrigerator or allow it to set on the counter for 30-35 minutes before you begin your work.
Prepare this recipe ahead of time and store it at room temperature for up to three days, using plastic wrap and foil as protection from staleness or crystallization.
Fresh raspberries make an enjoyable pair with scone, providing not only delicious tastes but also a healthy boost of antioxidants and fiber, along with being an excellent source of Vitamin C, potassium, calcium and iron.
These Raspberry Scones are sweet, tender, and moist without being overloaded with sugar. Made with butter and high-quality vanilla extract for maximum berry flavor.
Quick Tip: To achieve the flakiest and tenderest scones possible when baking scones, always use cold or frozen butter! Additionally, allow the dough to rest a few minutes after adding raspberry pieces so their flavors can mingle more fully into the dough.
Best of all, this recipe makes a lot of scones! Plus, any extra can be frozen and baked later.
Start by mixing together flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl, before cutting cold butter into it until the texture resembles coarse meal.
Combine all liquid ingredients, including heavy cream and sour cream (for optimal scones), then stir in fruit. Knead the dough several times to break up its lumps; it will be worth your while!
Once ready to bake, place the scones on a parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar. Brush each with some egg wash before putting into the oven for approximately 25 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
This simple Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe is the ideal addition to your fall breakfast menu! These flavorful muffins are filled with pumpkin spice goodness that is sure to please the entire family and beyond.
These muffins are created using all-purpose flour, giving them their light texture and structure. To achieve fluffy and light muffins, ensure the wet ingredients have reached room temperature before mixing them with dry ingredients.
Start by whisking together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl until smooth. Next add pumpkin puree, water and pumpkin pie spice; stir to incorporate. Lastly add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice – mix until everything has come together completely before folding in chocolate chips.
Once the mixture has been thoroughly blended, divide it among 24 prepared muffin tins and fill each cup two-thirds full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean – approximately 20 minutes.
Make the batter ahead of time and store in the refrigerator for at least one day before baking your muffins. Allow them to cool before serving!
Pumpkin chocolate chip muffins make an amazing treat when served either warm or at room temperature! Not only can they be enjoyed alone, but you can add in all kinds of add-ins – caramel, raisins or shredded coconut all make delicious additions – or opt for leaving out the chocolate chips altogether and topping your treat off with chopped toasted nuts like pecans or walnuts for even more variety!
