Bread Rolls Buns & Dough
Sure you can find soft pretzels in the frozen section at your local grocery, but what about beer soft pretzels? Complete with cheddar-cream cheese spread.
The only thing that could possibly make banana muffins even more delicious? Adding peanut butter and chocolate.
Today’s the day! The inaugural College Football Playoffs starts with match ups between Oregon and Florida State and more importantly Ohio State and Alabama! As my friend Christina put it so well, I’m quivering with excitement and anticipation. I hope Ohio State makes the Big Ten proud. With 10 of the 14 teams in the conference going into bowl games, every single one is listed as the underdog and there have already been upsets. Then before our game begins today, Wisconsin will be taking on Auburn, Michigan State plays Baylor, and Minnesota plays Missouri. It’s a big day for the Big Ten conference!

Whether you spell it potica or povitica (or call it something completely different), this Slovenian sweet nut roll bread is better than cinnamon swirl bread, in my biased opinion.
When Christmas rolls around, fruit cakes start appearing along with many other traditional Christmas recipes. While my dad does make a killer fruit cake, the pastry I most look forward to is Potica. Potica looks like cinnamon swirl bread but it’s got a little extra that make it that much better. It comes in many different shapes and sizes but for my family’s recipe the sweet, yeast pastry dough is rolled out really thin and then spread with a coating of ground up nuts and sugar before being rolled up and baked (we use a clean sheet of floured fabric to make rolling easier). Sometimes it’s a straight log, sometimes it gets bent it into a horse shoe shape, and other times it gets baked in a bundt cake pan. Whatever shape you prefer it’ll come up just right. What’s important to me is toasting a slice and then spreading butter on it. Holy yum.

These gingerbread cinnamon rolls topped with speculoos icing would be a great for breakfast on a holiday morning.Make it easier on yourself my preparing the night before.
Thanksgiving may still be on it’s way but I’m ready to pass over the pumpkin and start on some gingerbread. So I went ahead and made these gingerbread cinnamon rolls. If you have a lot of time in the morning, you could make these rolls all at once. Or you can divide the process by refrigerating the rolls overnight and then in the morning all you have to do is pop them in the oven. Then they get coated with a speculoos icing. Sounds like a great Thanksgiving or Christmas morning breakfast option to me.
I was inspired to make these cinnamon rolls when I got my hands on Baker’s Secret new colored metal bakeware, which are pretty enough to serve out of. Feel free to use them this holiday season for baking and serving without needing to dirty up another dish. To help you out, I have two pieces of Baker’s Secret colored metal bakeware to giveaway. Just use the Rafflecopter widget located at the end of this post.
