Baking and Breakfast


While Mr. Husband was at work
yesterday
I made a sour cream coffee cake
recipe courtesy of my Grandmother!
*
Recipe:
2 Sticks of butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 beaten eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda


Topping:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
*
Put half of batter in 9x13 pan
then put half of topping on
and put rest of batter on top
and then rest of topping on top of this.

And then bake at 325 F for 25 minutes
it was not done after this
so I made the temperature 350, baked 10 more
minutes and it was done.
*
I will know tomorrow how it tastes
as it is going to church!

For breakfast
I made Mr. Husband and I
grilled cheese with turkey slices
(organic)
with the bread I baked yesterday.
 
I used both of my cast iron skillets
for this...
We are consciously using up all our food for
the nativity fast...
*
Mr. Husband and I were given three
beautiful bread trays
including the two in the pictures above.
I use them all the time;
if I toast bread I put it on here
(saves my fingers!)
or baked potatoes...
simple and looks nice on the table!
*
I am really looking forward to the Nativity season
and building new traditions with
Mr. Husband.
*
Meanwhile,
I am hoping to bake blueberry muffins
via Mat. Emily's recipe...
I am hoping to bake them tonight after vespers!
