Dutch Sweet Bread/Ontbijtkoek - Daring Bakers' December, 2014 challenge

This morning, it smells so good in my kitchen! It smells ginger and honey, wow! Thanks to Andrea from 4Pure for challenging us to make a Ductch Sweet Bread, called ontbijtkoek (literally translated breakfast cake) . We had a choice between Peperkoek Cake -(pepper cake) this spiced cake is an integral part of the breakfast table in Holland-,  Kruidkoek or Sugarfree Peperkoek. I chose the first one.

Daring Bakers June, 2014 challenge - Sugar Buns -

This month Shelley from C Mom Cook challenged us to make Cinnamon Rolls, a North American treat.  I am not a fan of Cinnamon. So I decided to make Sugar Buns -Martha Stewart's recipe with no cinnamon-. These Sugar Buns are delicious, when they are warm. The Yeast Dough is easy to prepare. It's the perfect dough to make Sugar Buns, Sticky Buns, and Monkey Bread.  I filled the dough with white and brown sugar. You can refrigerate the dough overnight and make your Sugar Buns for Breakfast. Wow! Imagine how it smells... [Lire la suite]

English Muffin Bread

A quick and easy bread loaf! It's a perfect loaf for a perfect meal - The Breakfast. :)  Toasted, it's so delicious!!!

I prefer particularly jam.    Recipe adapted from Cook'sCountry Best recipes Dec.2013 Make... [Lire la suite]

I love Croissants. I do not find Croissants in my area. So 3 days ago, I decided to make myself those fabulous pastries. I put the dough 2 overnights in the fridge, It's why it's a long preparation. I said "oh no it's too long! It's the first and the last time that I made Croissants." My son of 14 years old told me : " mom, your croissants are delicious! Could you make croissants another time!" I said "yes". So I am sure finally to do again this recipe, because we love Croissants!!!!!!!  We just need patience for this lovely... [Lire la suite]

     Breakfast is for me the most delightful meal in the day. Those fluffy pancakes are wonderful for a breakfast!!! With a cup of coffee, it's so yummy!! These pancakes remind me the hotel breakfasts, when I travelled a lot visiting United States. I remembered when I stood by the buffet trying to find the best for me : pancakes, muffins or croissants, yogurt, fruits, muesli....bacon, eggs..... I love hotel breakfasts.    Since I found this great recipe in a cooking magazine, I made pancakes... [Lire la suite]
