30 Day Photo Challenge, Day 13, Me and 13 Things

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:  
1.  flour
2.  sugar
3.  baking powder
4.  salt
5.  margarine
6.  milk
7.  brown sugar
8.  raisins (actually, I think they were currants)
9.  a bowl
10. a muffin pan
11. a wooden spoon
12. cinnamon
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.


Cream together:
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!
