Breakfast Recipes

Here’s a few breakfast recipes that I make for my family:

Cinnamon Biscuits

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup Light Margarine

1 cup milk

Frosting:  1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla

Measure the flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt into a large mixing bowl.  Add margarine.  Next use a fork or pastry cutter to mash the margarine into the flour until it is crumbly.  Add milk and stir up the dough.  Knead dough on flour covered surface.  Cut with biscuit cutter or a rim of glass.  Lay biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes or until they are brown on top.  Remove from oven and cool slightly.  Meanwhile, mix up the frosting ingredients.  Drizzle the frosting over biscuits and serve.

Old Fashioned Pancakes

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 1/2 cups milk

1 egg

3 tablespoons of butter melted.

In a large bowl,  mix together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.  Make a well in the center and pour in milk and egg.  Mix together, then add butter. Stir until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat.  Pour or scoop the patter onto the griddle using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.  Brown on both sides and serve hot.

Baking Powder Biscuits

1/4 cup shortening or butter

2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Cut shortening or butter into flour, baking powder, and salt until particles are fine.  Stir in milk until flour is moistened and dough forms.  Knead lightly on floured surface about 10 times.  Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut with biscuit cutter.  Place close together on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Quick Cinnamon Rolls

Biscuit dough from Baking Powder Biscuits

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup chopped nuts,  optional

Roll out the dough so it is about half an inch thick on wax paper.  Try to keep it in a rectangular shape as you roll it out.  Spread margarine over the dough…. like spreading peanut butter on bread.  sprinkle on the brown sugar, scatter the cinnamon and sprinkle the nuts too.  Lift up one side of the waxed paper and use it to help you roll up the dough like a jellyroll, with the filling on the inside of the roll.  Pull back the wax paper as you go so it doesn’t get inadvertently wrapped up in the roll.  When the roll is nicely formed, use a sharp knife to cut it into about a dozen slices.  I cut int he center first then cut each half in half.  Each quarter can be divided into 3 or 4 slices.  Arrange the cinnamon rolls on a well greased 9 x 13 cake pan.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.  Allow to cool before eating…. can put the cinnamon biscuit frosting over the top of the rolls.

Blueberry Muffins

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

1/3 cup milk

1 cup fresh blueberries

Crumb topping:  1/2 cup white sugar, 1/3 cup all purpose flour, 1/4 cup butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease muffin pan or line with muffin liners.  Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.  Place oil, in 1 cup measuring cup, add egg and enough milk to fill the cup.  Mix with flour mixture.  Fold in blueberries.  Fill muffin cuts to the top and sprinkle with crumb topping.

Crumb topping:  mix sugar, flour and butter and cinnamon.  Mix with fork and sprinkle over muffins before baking.

Bake for 20-25 minutes in oven or until clean toothpick test shows they are done.
