Growing up I can count on one hand the number of times I had a Pop Tart. It was only on the insistence of my younger brother that Mom relented and I was introduced to the light and flaky toaster delight. It was a good thing I wasn’t in charge of the grocery shopping, or else like Lorelei and Rory, Pop Tarts would have become a breakfast staple. Inspired by the Gilmore Girls (I’ve been re-visiting the show in preparation for the release of the new season!) I thought it might be fun to try my hand at Homemade Pop Tarts, just in time for back school season.
Not that we need an excuse to have pancakes – but it is Pancake Day and with Valentines day just around the corner, what better way to start a Tuesday than Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze! Happy Fat Tuesday Friends!
As Miranda the creator of this recipe says, I’ve never met a cinnamon bun I didn’t like – except maybe one with pecans (I’m allergic).
If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you’ll know that Sunday’s for me are best spent baking, and cinnamon buns are one of my favorites. Is there anything more comforting and exciting than the smell of freshly baked cinnamon buns? I didn’t think so! Miranda’s recipe takes the humble cinnamon bun and elevates it to another level. While I thought I might miss the frosting, usually my favorite part of the bun, trust me you won’t. These are delicious just as they are. Ooey, gooey, amazing.
