I love toast – and this bread makes the most wonderful toast.  Slightly sweet with a touch of cinnamon, it’s fantastic with fresh butter and equally good turned into french toast.  I usually make two of these because the first one disappears rather quickly!  This recipe has been adapted from the “Joy of Cooking” cookbook.

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

These cinnamon rolls are a tradition in my house.  I make them every holiday morning, but I also make them at least once or twice a month.  Last Christmas, I didn’t make them – I tried out some new recipes instead.  I thought that they weren’t special because I make them all the time.  My children thought differently.  They were really … Continue reading

Puffed Apple Custard Pancake

Puffed Apple Custard Pancake

This “pancake” really tastes like a cross between apple and vanilla custard pie.  It’s beautifully puffed straight out of the oven, although it will sink a little as it cools.  I first had this for brunch at a friend’s house, and after a little begging – she finally caved and gave me the recipe.  It’s also amazing … Continue reading
