Come & Get it .... Breakfast Time

Yes that you must insert the cow bell ringing here ... heck if you want picture Christopher Walkin. If you don't know what I'm talking about you're missing out on the best SNL skit (youtube it).
So the wind is blowing and I may loose power here soon, so I must post this quick and be back tomorrow if possible.
First Recipe is for you pumpkin lovers

For the dough:
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/8 cup fat-free milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour; more for rolling
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the filling:
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, melted
2/3 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

For the glaze:
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons cold low-fat or soy milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Heat the oven to 400°F. Grease the sides and bottom of a 9- or 10-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

Make the dough:

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the pumpkin, 1/8 cup milk, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla. Mix on low speed until combined. Add the flours, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon and mix just until the dough clumps together (don’t overmix). The dough will be soft and moist.

Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it with floured hands 4 or 5 times until smooth. With a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 12×15-inch rectangle.

Make the filling:

Brush the dough with the melted butter, leaving a 1/2-inch border unbuttered around the edges. In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves. Sprinkle the mixture over the buttered area of the dough and pat gently into the surface. Sprinkle the nuts over the sugar mixture.

Starting at a long edge, roll up the dough jelly-roll style. Pinch the seam to seal, and leave the ends open.

With a sharp knife, cut the roll into 12 equal pieces. Set the pieces, cut side up, in the prepared pan; they should fill the pan and touch slightly, but don’t worry if there are small gaps.

Bake until golden brown and firm to the touch, 20 to 28 minutes. Set the pan on a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Run a spatula around the inside edge of the pan and remove the springform ring. Transfer the rolls to a serving plate.

Make the glaze:

In a small bowl, mix the confectioners’ sugar, 2 Tbs. milk, and vanilla to make a smooth glaze. It should have a thick but pourable consistency, so add up to 1 Tbs. more milk if necessary. Drizzle the glaze over the rolls. Let stand 15 minutes and serve.

ALEXIS NOTES: I found this dough to be a little loose & sticky, I would add a little more flour and play with it. I skipped the pecans. I used sugar substitute & out of milk so I used Fat Free Half & Half.

  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 apples (large), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • pinch salt
  • powdered sugar, for serving
  • maple syrup, for serving
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, flour, and vanilla extract and whisk until just blended, being careful to not overmix. Set the batter aside to rest while you prepare the apples, at least 20 minutes.

    Preheat the oven to 450°F.

    In a heavy, ovenproof (preferably nonstick)12-inch skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over high heat. Add the apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the apples are soft and lightly golden around the edges, about 6 minutes. Add the sugar and cook, stirring, until the apples are caramelized and very soft, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Add the remaining tablespoon of butter and stir to melt.

    Working very quickly, pour the batter evenly over the top of the apples. Using oven mitts or potholders, transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the pancake is golden brown and puffed, about 15 minutes. Don't be alarmed when you see the edges of the pancake puff up and extend above the top of the inner edge of the pan – this is supposed to happen!

    Using oven mitts or potholders, remove the skillet from the oven and serve the pancake, sprinkled with powdered sugar and drizzled with maple syrup, if desired.

    ALEXIS NOTES: Being in a hurry I threw the apples in the mix and just did pancakes that way, it of course would have been super extra yummy the original way but you know it is a time thing here. I use sugar substitute, whole wheat flour, 2% milk and of course add some pumpkin spice for the heck of it!
