Easy Cinnamon Buns (without yeast!)

  Have you ever been in a situation like this: You make cinnamon buns one random night two years ago. Several months later you attempt to find the recipe, fail, and end up making a different recipe that doesn’t turn out as good. For the following two years you keep thinking about that original recipe and what exactly you googled to find it. Then one seemingly inconspicuous day, completely by accident you find the recipe and rejoice by immediately blogging it so you never lose it again. That’s the story of this post. Despite cinnamon buns being fairly simple to make, finding a recipe that works in the high elevation I live at (3000 ft above sea level), that doesn’t require hours of rising (because I want to eat them now, not in 3 hours), and allows for lots of room for customization is challenging. These simple cinnamon buns require only ingredients you probably only have at home and bake within 15 minutes. Meaning you can eat your cinnamon buns in less than an hour…bonus! These cinnamon buns are soft, flaky and sweet with room for customization with raisins, nuts or anything else you can think of. Ingredients Buns 3 […]

Asiago Cheese and Black Pepper Scones (no biscuit mix required!)

Until a few years ago, scones were this mysterious biscuit/bread/cake thing that was reserved for fancy cafes and high teas at the Fairmont. I finally had my first scone when I was on vacation in San Francisco and I realized that scones may be amazing at high tea but they’re just as great for a quick breakfast. Despite coming to the conclusion that I don’t have to be in my finest outfit to enjoy a scone, I still had no idea where to begin with making them. Frankly, for the last two years I had zero interest. I thought they would be way too difficult and would require some sort of fancy UK baking technique that I was way too amateur to even attempt. Much to my surprise, scones are easy to make. They’re borderline fool proof and remarkably impressive to people who have feared them for years (like me). This Asiago and Black Pepper scone recipe can make made in 15 minutes or less, with one bowl and minimal prep work. They take less than 20 minutes to bake and another 5 to cool and last at least three days if sealed up. They have a sharp taste that […]

One Bowl Banana Muffins 

I woke up bright and early Saturday morning with three over ripe bananas and dreams of starting my day with fresh banana bread. I went downstairs, gathered my ingredients and began mixing and mashing and soon my batter was beginning to take shape. I opened the drawer where we keep the pans and everything seemed too flat…I looked a bit further and my standard 9″x5″  baking pan was no where to be found. Panic ensued as I tore apart the kitchen in search of my one and only bread pan. After 20 minutes of searching, my rumbling stomach and heated oven left me no choice: alter the recipe and bring out the muffin tins. Little did I know that this missing bread pan would lead me to an easy and delicious banana muffin recipe. These little guys can be made in one bowl. This means your Sunday morning mess will be minimal. They bring out the banana taste without the  too sweet aftertaste that sometimes comes with over ripe bananas. And most of all they stay moist for days, even when left uncovered or on counter tops.   Ingredients Three large overripe bananas 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter 3/4 cup […]
