I think I have a baking problem. Seriously, it’s way too fun and such productive procrastination:).
My latest creation is a cinnamon bun explosion! The buns were so bursting with deliciousness that they literally exploded out of the pan. Pretty crazy.
I’ve also been experimenting a lot with making my own granola. Cereal is just too expensive. It’s also healthier to make your own. You then control how much sugar goes into it. It’s surprisingly easy to make your own granola. Just mix whatever you want... oats, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, coconut, dried nuts… then add some oil, vanilla, brown sugar or maple syrup... bake for 45 minutes (mix every once in awhile) at 300°F. Voila, granola! You can mix in any dried fruit at the end (don’t add before baking, it will burn, not that I know by experience…).
|Yes, the most proper way to serve cinnamon buns is on a pig platter|
My favourite creation so far has been gingerbread granola. Just add gingerbread spices (ginger, cloves, nutmeg), cut up fresh ginger and use molasses and brown sugar as the sweetener. Really good combo, especially during the colder months.
Now I’m just trying to figure how to get it to create big clumps like in the cereal boxes, any tips?
