I like to have something special for breakfast on Sunday morning. Sometimes I'll make something on Saturday; sometimes we'll go buy pain au chocolat (choco pain au lah as Suzanne used to call it when she was little); or I'll get up early enough to make something. This morning I got up and made Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls. This is not exactly a flattering picture, but it was Sunday morning, so what do you expect?
The 13 things are:
3. baking powder
7. brown sugar
8. raisins (actually, I think they were currants)
9. a bowl
10. a muffin pan
11. a wooden spoon
13. my home-made cookbook (ok, it's behind me and didn't quite make it into the picture.
Here's the recipe:
In large bowl, mix:
2 cups flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
(Or you can use Bisquick or prepared biscuit dough if you live in a country where such things are available. I don't!)
Cut in until crumbly:
1/4 cup butter or margarine
Make a well in the center. Pour into well and then stir in:
1 cup milk (I use skim)
Stir to form a soft dough, adding a bit more milk if necessary (I actually used a little less than 1 cup of milk). Turn on lightly floured surface. Knead 8-10 times. Roll into rectangle about 1/3 inch thick and 12 inches long.
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
Drop 1 teaspoon of filling into each of 12 greased muffin tins. Spread the remaining cinnamon mixture over dough rectangle. Sprinkle over top:
1/3 cup cut up raisins or currants (cut up? You've got to be joking! I don't do that!)
Roll up, then cut into 12 slices. Place cut side down in muffin pan. Bake in 400 F oven for 20-25 minutes. Turn out on tray. Makes 12. Top with glaze made with 1/2 cup icing sugar and enough milk to make a thin glaze.
I don't do the glaze as they are sweet enough without. Enjoy for an easy Sunday breakfast!
