Caramel Apple Ring Pancakes

Caramel Apple Ring Pancakes

Sliced Apple Pancakes – apple rings are dipped in pancake batter and then cooked until golden brown for a sweet breakfast treat. 

Something about fall means cozy weekend mornings at home.  Hanging out in our pajamas and just being lazy.  But those weekend mornings aren’t complete without a delicious and comforting breakfast.  Now if only I could find a way for the breakfast to just appear and the clean up to magically be done.  Then lazy weekends would be complete.

Sliced Apple Pancakes - apple rings are dipped in pancake batter and then cooked until golden brown for a sweet breakfast treat.

Pancakes are one of my favorite things to have for breakfast.  Super light and fluffy pancakes topped with maple syrup can be hard to beat.  But there is one problem.  They don’t always fill you up.  So today we are fixing that.  We are taking apple slices and turning them into pancakes!  You still get light and fluffy pancakes, but you get a sweet crisp apple in the middle.  A fun little twist with all the apples that are in season right now.

Sliced Apple Pancakes - apple rings are dipped in pancake batter and then cooked until golden brown for a sweet breakfast treat.

Apple pancakes are super easy to make. You can use whatever your favorite pancake recipe is.  I used a box mix for these.  You just dip the thinly sliced apples in the prepared pancake batter, and place in a hot skillet.  The pancakes cook up and the apple inside stays a little crispy.  Top with warm maple syrup for a breakfast everyone will love!

4-Ingredient Chocolate Bar Danish

How to Make a Gooey Chocolate Danish with Just 2 Basic Ingredients. Video tutorial included! You need this crazy delish croissant hack in your life.

Golden, flaky and amazingly delicious, this oozy chocolate Danish is just the perfect complement to any cup of coffee, it’s also super easy to make. You need just 4 simple ingredients and one sturdy baking sheet to get started. Prep it in 10 minutes, bake and you’ll be pulling apart a hot, flaky pastry in less time than it takes to hit the corner store bakery.

You can use either milk or dark chocolate for this recipe. We’ve tried both and recommend using dark chocolate. Milk chocolate ends up tasting tremendously sweet. But dark chocolate recreates that classic flavor of a Paris croissant.

Another trick to Danish success? Make sure you cook the puffed pastry until it is medium golden brown. Though the sheets will turn light golden, the pastry doesn’t puff into flaky layers until it’s had ample time to crisp. So, leave that pastry in the oven long enough to completely cook.

Ready to try it out? You can print the recipe below. But before that, why not watch this yummy wonder come together? We’ve cooked one up in our own kitchen, so you can see just how worthwhile it is to cook one up in yours!

4-Ingredient Chocolate Bar Puffed Pastry

Print

Chocolate Bar Danish

2 basic ingredients plus an egg and sugar. That’s all you need to make these insanely delicious slices of chocolate croissant.

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 puff pastry sheet
  • 1 large (4.25 oz) chocolate bar, dark or milk
  • 1 egg
  • sugar for sprinkling.

Instructions

Thaw your puff pastry sheet according to directions on the label. Once thawed, lay flat on a cutting board. Lay your chocolate bar on top of the puff pastry sheet. Using a pizza cutter or pastry wheel, slice diagonally from the edge of the pastry sheet to the edge of the chocolate bar all the way down until you have made slits all along the edges of both sides. Fold the diagonal strips you have formed onto the chocolate bar overlapping and forming a braid appearance as best as possible. The main point is to make sure to cover any of the exposed chocolate. Trim any excess where needed and use to path any holes if necessary. In a separate bowl, whisk an egg to make an egg wash for the pastry. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then lay your pastry on top. Brush the egg wash onto the pastry and then sprinkle with sugar. Bake 400 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool slightly, then cut and serve!

Dark Chocolate Trees Cake

Make a cake festive for the holidays with this super easy storebought cake hack. All you need is a cake mix, frosting and chocolate chips!

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 8

Ingredients

  • one 12 oz bag of dark chocolate chips

Instructions

Step 1: Using a box cake mix, bake a cake and frost it. I used two round cake pans and only one can of store bought icing since I was going for the “naked” frosted look. This means it’s okay to leave some of the cake exposed when you ice it. Step 2: Empty the contents of a bag of Dark Chocolate chips into a microwavable container with a lid. Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stopping and stirring halfway. If your microwave is super powerful, I would recommend heating in 3o minute increments. Step 3: Once the chocolate chips are fully melted and the mixture is creamy, scoop into an icing bag with a tip and allow to cool a bit. You want the chocolate thick but not so thick that it’s hard to squeeze. Step 4: Lay out a sheet of wax paper and using the icing bag filled with the chocolate draw the shape of trees onto the wax paper. Make sure to draw sturdy trunks! You will attach the trees by the trunks to the cake. Step 5: Transfer the wax paper with the piped-on tree designs to the freezer. We laid our wax paper on a cookie sheet so the transfer would be easier. Let the trees sit in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Step 6: Remove the trees from the freezer and then dab a little of the melted chocolate on the trunk of each tree. This will serve as an adhesive to stick the trees to the cake. Stick trees all along the edge of the cake until you have covered the edge with a forest of trees!

Holiday Breakfast Casserole: Easy, Cheesy Sausage and Potato Bake

How to Make a Christmas Breakfast Casserole
Breakfast is such a special time of the day in our house on holidays and weekends.

Throughout the week, the mornings are rushed. Everyone grabs a bowl of cereal or microwaves themselves some oatmeal. If we’re really lucky, there might be a leftover muffin or two to devour. Weekday breakfasts are hurried, as we’re all getting ready for work and school. 

Weekends, however, are perfect for a hearty breakfast. Something hot and filling, full of protein and maybe some veggies, served to a table full of family dressed in pajamas. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it? 

Of course, just because I like to serve a big breakfast on weekends and holidays, this doesn’t mean that I like to spend my entire morning cooking. No, weekends are my lazy time. 

Cheesy potatoes and spicy sausage make this easy breakfast casserole a family favorite!

Enter this simple sausage and potato breakfast casserole. With a short list of ingredients and minimal prep time, it’s the perfect option for a family breakfast. 

I keep this extra easy by using a well seasoned sausage. My family loves the “hot” breakfast sausage, but mild will work as well. You might consider trying the maple sausage as well, for a sweet and salty twist to this recipe. 

I also keep the prep work to a minimum by starting with a bag of frozen hash browns mixed with peppers and onions. Most brands call these potatoes O’Brien and they’re a great way to cut time in the kitchen. No need to chop your own veggies and dirty extra dishes here! 

Everything bakes up hot and bubbly, oozing with cheese and bursting with flavor, in a Good Cook AirPerfect 9×13 Baking Dish. This heavy-gauge nonstick pan is my favorite – it’s so versatile and goes from breakfast casserole to brownies in the blink of an eye. Not that you’ll be needing brownies anytime soon after munching on this filling breakfast! 

This is especially good on Christmas morning. At my house, the kids get lots of candy in their stockings, so serving something hearty and savory like this breakfast casserole is a must to keep them from having too much sugar first thing in the morning.

Peanut Butter Butterfinger Dip – creamy, fluffy, peanut butter dip with chunks of Butterfinger. Great with apples or graham crackers!

Sweet Party Treat! Peanut Butter Butterfinger Dip

 I am pretty sure I could live on snacks. Sweet or savory, it doesn’t really matter. I can not go through the day without having snacks! What is your favorite snack? I grew up with apple slices and peanut butter, and to this day it is still one of my favorites. But instead of just plain peanut butter, I decided to completely up the game.   Peanut butter, cream cheese, whipped topping, and Butterfingers take snacking to an entirely different level.  Creamy Peanut Butter Butterfinger Dip is sure to be one of your new favorites!

This dip is probably more of a dessert, but really any excuse to eat this will do. Peanut butter Butterfinger dip is delicious with slices of apples, graham crackers, animal crackers, and Nilla wafers. I may have eaten some straight off a spoon, but I will never admit it! It also works well on top of brownies, but won’t tell you know I know that. It took all of my will power to not eat it all. There is just something about peanut butter and chocolate together! Especially in a creamy and fluffy dip.

Peanut Butter Butterfinger Dip - super easy, creamy peanut butter dip with chunks of Butterfinger.  Great for dipping apples, nilla wafers or even just from a spoon.

Peanut butter Butterfinger dip comes together in just 5 minutes. Just cream together peanut butter and cream cheese, and then fold in the whipped topping and crushed candy. I left my Butterfingers in larger chunks, because I wanted to be able to really tell they were in there. But you can finely crush them, if that is more your style. This dip is great to have in the fridge for after school snacks, or when unexpected guests show up.
