Breakfast Brioche Bread Pudding

Do you like Bread Puddings? What flavor combination is your absolute favorite? Bread pudding, which I typically call sweet breakfast casserole, is the best creation. Whoever invented this is an absolute genius.

Homemade Dinner Rolls

Homemade Dinner Rolls

Homemade Dinner Rolls

These are probably the best homemade dinner rolls ever. Also, I will take bread over dessert anytime. That might sound crazy to some people, but that’s me.

You can either love as I am or hate me. Well, you have no reason to hate me, but you know what I mean.

I just really love bread with anything, and my family is like me. These rolls are incredibly delicious and easy to make.

It does take a bit patient, but that’s baking in general and it is totally worth it.

If you do not have the time to enjoy the process then you are not a baker. I might not be a cake maker, but I really enjoy making pies, rolls, biscuits, and bread.

Homemade Dinner Rolls

As you may notice I make everything with my hands. I do not use a large bowl, measuring cups/spoons, food scale, and a wooden spoon or multifunctional spatula.

Maybe one day when I am unable to knead the dough, I will invest in something like KitchenAid.

However, for now, I really enjoy working with my hands. If you wish to use Stand Mixer with kneading attachment please make your life easier and use it.

I make these days ahead for so we have them for sandwiches or school lunch. Most of the time I double the dough and refrigerate.

I grew up having weekend family feasts, so I love implementing that tradition with my own family as well.

It makes my heart full of joy having all my children around the table, delicious aroma of the cooked meal, usually roasted chicken and potatoes, with these rolls on the side in a basket cooling off.

Homemade Dinner Rolls

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Proofing Time: 1 hour 40 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes

Easy and tasty homemade dinner rolls.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp. Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Luke Warm Water
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 stick unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs + 1 egg for brushing on the rolls

Instructions

  1. Combine flour, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Then take about 1/4 cup of warm milk and pour over sugar and dry yeast; Let it sit until the yeast gets activated {and this will tell you if the yeast is still active}
  3. Add room temperature eggs to melted and slightly cooled butter.
  4. Pour warm milk to activated yeast, then add mixed eggs and butter mixture and mix it.
  5. To wet mixture add dry ingredients (flour, salt and baking powder) and mix it until you cannot mix anymore with a wooden spoon or a spatula.
  6. Knead it until well combined, about 10 minutes of constant kneading. If you do not wish to knead it with your hands use KitchenAid with kneading/hook attachment and knead until the texture is smooth and elastic.
  7. Cover it and let it rise for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
  8. Brush each roll either with melted unsalted butter or mixed egg (I liked it with mixed eggs, and after baking lightly brushing with butter)
  9. Add everything bagel seasoning, about 1/4 teaspoon or more on each roll.
  10. Allow them to rise for at least one hour, preferably one hour and a half.
  11. Bake the rolls at 400F for about 22 to 25 minutes OR until the rolls are golden brown.
  12. Once done cover the pan with a cotton kitchen towel and let it cool down before serving.

Notes

You can: after you brush rolls with egg or butter you can sprinkle some sesame seeds or poppy seeds on top before letting them rise. Or you can keep them plain, or add whatever topping that you prefer. The size of the rolls before the second rise should be smaller than the size of the tennis ball, but they will rise more in the oven. You can make 8 large rolls or about 12 smaller ones.

If you have leftover dough: This dough is even better after a few days of refrigeration. Just make sure to cover very well, the best way is to place in a Large Storage Plastic Bag (for vegetables or meat) close, take the air out and place it in the fridge for up to 2 days.

When you want to use it, just let it rise on the room temp. for about 30 min. Line the baking pan with parchment paper. Roll the dough into a long log, then cut approximately equal slices of dough, as you can see of step by step pictures. Roll each slice into a dinner roll.

You may dust a bit of flour or you can use marble surface for easier rolling. Place each dinner roll on the baking pan. Make enough space in between so the rolls have the space to rise.

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Oatmeal Banana Nut Bread Recipe #baking #bread #bananabread #food #homemade #foodblogger #recipes #recipe

 
Sometimes I really dream about food and then I wake up with crazy cravings. One of those mornings when I woke up I wanted delicious, dense, nutty, banana bread. I tried making it “healthier”, and I hope you all like it.
 
For this one, I used brown sugar and honey in this recipe and I got to assure you that it was wonderful. I suppose you can use maple syrup or agave nectar, but make sure to use correct measurements for those ingredients equal to sugar or honey.
 

Nevertheless, this kind of bread is perfect the next day, so since we have leftovers I genuinely enjoyed every little crumb of this bread with my morning coffee or afternoon tea. Additionally, I love baking it in square cake pans because it comes out perfectly baked and far less dense than when I bake banana bread in my loaf bread.

 

With that being said, if I do bake in my loaf pan, I always use less batter because I consider my middle part a bit more baked (laughing my butt off haha).

No, seriously, have you ever baked banana bread, and it looks superb, but when you slice into the bread, it’s like raw? I can’t even tell you how many times that happen to me so that’s why I switched completely to square baking pans.

Okay, I hope Y’all make this bread and like it…

HAPPY COOKING!

Author Sandra | Sandra's Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Old Fashioned Oats Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon powder
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Canola oil
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Brown Sugar preferably dark
  • 1/2 cup Honey 3/4 cup Maple Syrup could be used
  • 3-4 ripe Bananas
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour Non-Stick Square Cake Pan 9x9 or use parchment paper like I did.
  2. Combine together the flour, oats, sugar, salt, baking powder, soda and cinnamon powder in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together until somewhat smooth in texture: bananas (that you previously just smashed with a fork), Eggs, Honey and Canola Oil. I used an electric mixer.
  4. Now to the wet mixture add dry mixture, combine it together then add chopped walnuts (or any nuts that you prefer), and fold the nuts in the batter.
  5. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread (or into the crown of the bread, if you are making a loaf)., and it comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for at least 5 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack.
  6. Allow it to cool completely, or at least for an hour before serving.

Recipe Notes

This bread is even better the next day, just heat it for 30 seconds in the microwave and you will be amazed. You can also make this as muffins or a loaf pan, although I like it in this type of baking pan because it bakes much better. If you like your banana bread sweeter use 3/4 cup of brown sugar. I liked mine just the way it is, but we all have different tastes. If the honey is too sugary you can place a jar in a warm water for a couple of minutes until the honey becomes soft and smooth in texture.

 

LOVE, PEACE, AND ROCK-N-ROLL,

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

When it comes to delicious food to share with your family and friend these buns are definitely a way to go. They are simple and with a little prep, these could be done in no time. I absolutely love a good sandwich as well as homemade buns, calzones, and of course, BBQ pulls apart pork. So these are definitely a bit of all combined together, don’t you think?!
I used pizza dough to make these as well as some leftover pull apart pork that I mixed with BBQ sauce, and let me tell you, they were delightful.

My family enjoyed this barbecue pull apart stuffed buns very much, especially my husband who loves these types of food. I made them many times with different filling, such as ham and cheese, or sauteed ground beef and onion and they are always a crowd pleaser.
I am going to link a recipe for my dough, as well as slow cooker pull apart pork in the recipe section. If you are going to make 4 large buns, then you’d need at least 2 tablespoons of BBQ pull apart pork per bun. You can buy it store, or make it yourself.

Now, let’s start cooking.

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Buns

Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough — makes 4 large rolls or 6 smaller, recipe below, or use store-bought
  • 8-10 tablespoons  Slow Cooker Pulled Apart Shredded Pork  or store-bought
  • 1 cup Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 1 tbsp melted unsalted Butter for brushing
  • Sprinkle Garlic Powder for each bun
  • Sprinkle Dried Parsley for each bun

Instructions

  1. Divide a dough into balls approximately size of a baseball (about 9 inches in circumference). RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE PIZZA DOUGH 

  2. Flatten each ball into 5-6 inches in diameter and into less than 1/2 inch thick disks.
  3. Add about 2 tablespoons of barbecue pull apart pork and sprinkle cheese on top.

    HOMEMADE RECIPE FOR SLOW-COOKED PULL APART PORK 

  4. Close each bun — Bring the edges together and pinch them to seal the dough completely, leaving the edges clear. Continue until all the dough and filling has been used.
  5. Place in well-greased baking pan or line baking pan with the parchment paper. Do not put the buns too close together, as they spread. Let them rise, covered for about 30 more minutes, or until they are almost double in size. During the last 10 minutes of rising time, preheat your oven to 400F. Brush buns with melted butter before baking.
  6. Bake for 30-40 min, or until golden brown.
  7. 15 minutes before they are done, brush the buns lightly with just a few strokes of melted butter so that garlic powder and dried parsley could stick. You'd need just a sprinkle of two of garlic powder and dried parsley for each bun.
  8. When they are done, cover them with a large cotton kitchen towel and allow them to rest for about 10 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

Mine cracked a bit while baking, but I kept them only 15 minutes to do the second rise instead of 30 minutes. Make sure to allow them to rise up again from 30 to 45 minutes. They will be amazingly fluffy and delicious, however, the buns were pretty amazing regardless. You can use any cheese that you want or do not cheese at all, it is up to you. You can make the dough a day before and place it in the fridge. Make sure that it is completely covered to prevent from drying. If you make buns, yes, you can freeze them ahead and bake later. They are just wonderful. The baking time will not change significantly, but it might vary if the buns are frozen.
