recipe: cinnamon loaf

cinnamon-loaf-3 In our household, I am the cook and my husband is the baker. He is much better at it than I am. I think it’s because I hate to follow recipes, and baking usually requires you to adhere pretty closely to a given recipe.

A few weekends ago, Remy woke us up at the crack of dawn. Geoffrey got up with her, then went downstairs and began baking. This is the recipe for the delicious loaf that he made for us that day. It was taken from Company’s Coming The Rookie Cook book.

cinnamon-loaf-1Cinnamon Loaf:

Makes 16 slices

Ingredients

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup hard margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla

1 cup sour milk

cinnamon-loaf-2Steps

1. Mix cinnamon and first amount of brown sugar in a small cup. Set aside.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.

3. Cream margarine and second amount of brown sugar together in large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in vanilla.

4. Add flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with sour milk in 2 additions, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Pour 1/2 of batter into greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Smooth top. Sprinkle 1/2 of cinnamon mixture over batter. Spoon remaining batter over top. Smooth carefully. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon mixture over batter. Swirl with knife to create marble effect. Bake in 350°F oven for 55 to 60 minutes until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand in pan for 10 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool.

make these : rhubarb muffins

Rhubarb Muffins - 3A few days before having Remy, I made two batches of rhubarb muffins. I wanted to have a somewhat healthy yet filling snack on hand since I knew that I would have next to no time to prepare any once she was home. These certainly did the trick, and they were so delicious! I just can’t get enough of rhubarb.

Rhubarb Muffins - 8Rhubarb Muffins

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease or line muffin tray.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the brown sugar, oil, egg, vanilla and milk with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour in the dry ingredients and mix by hand just until blended. Stir in the rhubarb.

3. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, filling almost to the top. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, white sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of this mixture on top of each muffin.

4. Bake for approximately 25 minutes. Let cool and serve.

make these : donut muffins

Donut Muffins - 12Prior to giving birth to Remy, I went on a baking rampage. It was probably due entirely to my nesting instinct. It was during this time that I tried quite a few different recipes, especially when it came to muffins. One such recipe was donut muffins. I made them with my husband in mind, since he is a huge fan of donuts. He said that they were the best things that I had ever baked. I took that as a compliment.
