I want to make a delicious, to-die-for breakfast baked good....
Two of my kids are out of the house and live on opposite coasts and they just flew in for T-Day last night :) :) :)
I want to make a fabuloso stupendous, yummy breakfast coffee cake for them to wake up to this morning. I am not a prolific baker so I do not know of a lot of tried and true recipes. I have made Ina's sour cream coffee cake a couple of times, but that's about it. :/ That's embarrassing. Can anyone recommend one? I can look up the recipe if you tell me the source.
Why not make a strudel? You can even cheat and buy ready-made dough. You can have more fun making the filling: apples, walnuts, raisins, cinammon, sugar, butter basically (or other ingredients). It's a baked good while being pretty light, and you can vary the amounts of sugar or butter.
They arrived last night and it's already morning and you want to start now? Any cookbook, any quick baking powder coffee cake recipe, but put half the batter in the pan then a lot of cinnamon and sugar and nuts and raisins, then the rest of the batter, then more cinnamon etc on top.
Or, if you have any Cresecent Rolls, put the same stuff (cinnamon, sugar, nuts) on them before you roll them up.
Or forget baking if you have some frozen waffles. Dump a bag of any frozen fruit in a saucepan, add about 1/2 cup water and 1 cup sugar, bring to a boil, and add a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup cold water. Bring to boil again and serve hot over the waffles. If you don't have waffles, make French toast by dipping slices of bread in egg beaten with a little milk.
