Holiday Egg Nog Cinnamon Rolls – A Christmas Tradition

Egg Nog Orange Cinnamon RollsOrange Cinnamon Rolls with Eggnog Glaze by Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack

My kiddos are early birds and on Christmas morning they wake up even earlier. I’m pretty sure our household isn’t the only one — every child is excited to see what Santa delivered.

These citrus-flavored cinnamon rolls drizzled with a festive eggnog glaze were inspired by Christmas morning. They are the perfect warm treat to enjoy with a hot cup of coffee while watching your children’s eyes light up as they open all their gifts.

The holidays can be fun and festive, but they can also be stressful. Once I see the smiling faces and gleaming eyes on my kiddos Christmas morning all the stress melts away. This Christmas my goal is to relax and enjoy the moment, and now I will be able to with this recipe. This simple dough does not require a mixer and can be made the night before and refrigerated. In the morning all that will be needed to do is fill, roll, and bake.

I have so many fond memories of Christmas mornings as a child, and those memories were not about the gifts, but instead of the delicious aromas that lingered in the air. I have no doubt that my kiddos will also have special memories of these cinnamon rolls baking and filling the air with robust and sweet scents. These warm, soft, fluffy, and gooey orange cinnamon rolls drizzled with an eggnog glaze will surely be memorable making this dish ideal for Christmas. Get the Recipe!

Feliz Navidad!

Happy Holidays with Cherries and Cream (with chocolate)!

Cherries and Cream Quick BreadEveryone seems to be in the baking spirit when the holidays roll around.  Here at Clabber Girl we are busy looking into new recipes, working with bloggers to add new and exciting ways to bake AND teach you what we learn!

Bakers Royale blogger Naomi worked with our Cherries and Cream Quick Bread recipe to vamp it up and improve the flavor.  As usual she did not disappoint!  Mini chocolate chips and sliced almonds added to the batter gives that special touch that helps incorporate a chocolate covered cherry flavor to this recipe.  The beautiful vanilla-chocolate glaze is topped with whipped cream and maraschino cherries, making this a creation worthy of any banquet or buffet!  Get the updated Cherries and Cream Quickbread Recipe here.

Get a Fresh Start to the Baking Season

Strawberry Muffin TopsCooking and baking at home from scratch can save you money compared to dining out, and it can also be much healthier than using pre-packaged foods, since you are in control of the ingredients you use. There are no added preservatives, and the foods taste better when home made. That being said, it is good to note that the preparation of the baking season can help ensure you get off to a good start with fresh ingredients, a well-stocked pantry and a quick check of basic ingredients.

Once you are stocked and ready to go, try some of our best biscuit recipes we have listed! Personal favorites are Strawberry Muffin Tops and Old Fashioned Biscuits. One sweet, one savory but both are quick and easy! For quick tips and pointers on how to make biscuits, see the photos and information on our blog: Biscuit Techniques

Hot Chocolate Brownie Torte with Marbled Frosting – Blog post from Bakers Royale

Hot Chocolate Brownie TorteBlogger Naomi at Bakers Royale took our Hot Chocolate Brownie Torte recipe for a spin. She added her own touch to the original recipe, the special marbled topping. The marbled topping makes this easy dessert look as elegant as it tastes.

“How can you go wrong with a hot chocolate brownie torte? You can’t, but you can make it better with a hint of cayenne for a little bit of spice…Of course I couldn’t turn down making it—one can never have too many brownie recipes and variations. And even more so, once I saw that it was a one-bowl brownie recipe—fast and easy.”
