A BIG CHRISTMAS WELCOME TO ALL OF YOU
It is my absolute pleasure to host December 2018 Baking Crumbs. Most appropriately this is my virgin linky and I am definitely filled with the Baking Spirit. I have had an absolute Xmas ball reading all the linked up entries and am very excited to bring them in front of you here at the figurative baking manger.
I am of course missing Angela, our former host but am loving her fabulous pottery pieces that she is currently busy creating. If anyone is looking for a special gift for someone then do check out all her wonderful pieces here at her Etsy shop.
NOW ONTO THE EXCITING BIT.......
For this December round up I decided to feature the bakes that I would love to have for a Xmas Breakfast. For a long time this was a very special search for me. I was determined to find exactly the right recipe. One that was special enough but simple enough. Who wants to fiddle and faddle on Xmas morn? Certainly not me Santa. I eventually found this recipe - Danish Pastry Cinnamon Rolls, the most incredible cinnamon mouthfuls you can imagine, and I have been converted to Easy Danish Pastry ever since. However these bakes have had me pondering I can tell you......
Sprinkled Chocolate Chunk Muffins from The Not So Creative Cook
These Muffins had me at "Chunks of Chocolate." Oh my goodness these are special indeed. Crammed to the very top with Dark Chocolate they are perfect for Xmas morning. Simple and no fuss with maximum taste results and bags of indulgence. Pass me the Bucks Fizz.....
Christmas Spiced Doughnuts from A Strong Coffee
These bronzed babies had me at Doughnut. I can just imagine biting into these crisp, cinnamony sweet clouds of heaven on Christmas morning. I bet you could make the doughnut dough the night before and get it out early to come up to room temperature ready for a bit of deep frying action and rolling in festive spiced sugar. Oh Santa Baby........
Baked Apple Cinnamon Doughnuts from Cooking with my Kids.
These baked doughnuts are always something that I want to try but never get round to. Apple and Cinnamon is one of my favourite combos EVER so this recipe cried out to me as soon as I read the ingredients. I imagine you could make these the day before and reheat them gently for an incredible, no fuss Xmas Breakfast. The joy of this recipe too is that it is written with baking with your children in mind. What fun to do this on Xmas Eve with them. "Twas the night before Christmas......"
Chocolate and Banana Muffins from Curlys Cooking
These Muffins are moist and full of banana and chocolate. Just what is required on a Xmas morning. They are made even more fabulous with their final chocolate drizzle. How wonderful would these look on your Xmas Breakfast Table. These too can be made a day ahead leaving you to just simply grab and apply to your Xmas face. You could even leave one out for Rudolph on Xmas Eve.....
Eggless Challah Bread from Cooking with Renu
This Challah Bread would be perfect for a Toasted Smoked Salmon and Scrambled egg kinda of a Xmas breakfast. Luxurious as well as stunning this plaited beauty would make anyone's Xmas morning a very special affair. This recipe is for two loaves so you could even give one as a gift on Xmas Eve to share the Xmas Breakfast Love. Just perfect.....
I hope you have enjoyed this December #BakingCrumbs Linky with me and I hope you are feeling inspired to try some of the recipes included here.
What did I recreate this month in Apply to Face's Kitchen?
For my part I couldn't help myself but make this Caramel Upside Down Banana Cake from Searching For Spice.
Forever I have been meaning to bake an upside down cake. I just love the retro feel of them. So when I saw this recipe I absolutely knew I had to make it and it was just as good as it looked! My children went absolutely potty for it! Thanks Corina! A very special cake.
