Composition books, pencils, and backpacks line the store aisles which means it's back to school time! The kids have all of their supplies ready to go, but what about breakfast? It is imperative for people, especially students, to eat this most important meal of the day so I wanted to give you an idea for a Breakfast Sandwich that can be made in just a couple minutes, has a great nutritional value, and is low in sugar and fat, unlike many other popular morning meals. It's great for kids and adults so enjoy one and have a great day!
Balls of fluffy, baked dough covered with a sauce made of melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar- this one is for sure one of my guiltiest pleasures! There is no official answer out there to how Monkey Bread got its name, but who cares, it's a no brainer dessert that is finger licking good. The recipe has been around for decades (said to be made popular by women's magazines and Nancy Reagan) and I remember my mom making it only a handful of times, most likely because of its antinutritional value and the gigantic number of calories and fat grams it contains. This version is slightly less horrible since it cuts down drastically on the amount of butter typically used. I also make it in a loaf pan instead of the traditional bundt shape to make a smaller amount, because trust me it's so good, no matter how much is made, it will all get eaten!
The other day, my mom was telling me about the banana bread she was making and I requested she take a picture and send it to me along with the recipe. She obliged and now we can all reap the benefits! What's her "secret" to this amazing bread? Chocolate Chips! Throw a few of them into the mix and you've got yourself a hit! I have always loved this bread whether it was for dessert, breakfast, or an afterschool treat and hope you will too.
This is not your Average Flapjack... sweet potatoes turn a popular breakfast item into a delicious and beautiful dish. You'll be sure to win a few ooh's and aah's from your breakfast patrons due to the subtle sweetness and brilliant orange color of these Sweet Potato Pancakes. I like serving this dish for a brunch gathering since the batter can be made ahead of time in just 30 minutes and the cooking time is half of that.
