Homemade Cinnamon Streusel Scone Bread

Cinnamon streusel scone bread. It’s dessert bread, covered in streusel, with scone-like qualities … and you know how I love cakes that pretend to be breads. (I had a real love affair with banana breads going for a while: our favorite milk chocolate chip banana bread, vegan chocolate chunk banana bread, and healthier vegan banana cake with almond flour.)

And I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: any dessert that begs for an accompanying cup of coffee is my kind of dessert. Plus, because this homemade cinnamon streusel scone bread is some variation of a scone and sweet bread, this totally counts as breakfast, which means CAKE for breakfast. ‘Aint nothing wrong with that.

I’m so excited about this cinnamon streusel scone bread – it is one of my favorite recipes to date and has transformed my brunches! It has a crisp, crunchy exterior with a soft, pillowy inside, topped and filled with ribbons of cinnamon streusel. A combination of pull-apart bread, coffee cake, and scones, this cinnamon streusel scone loaf is amazing!

Homemade Cinnamon Streusel Scone Bread

INGREDIENTS

Scone Bread
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¾ cups cold unsalted butter, cut into ¼-inch cubes*
2 large eggs
½ cup milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract

Cinnamon Streusel Filling
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons granulated sugar
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Egg Wash
1 egg + 1 tablespoon cream, beaten together

* I cut the butter in thirds lengthwise, turn the stick and cut it into thirds lengthwise again. I then cut ¼ inch sections all the way down the short side. This gives me smaller pieces of butter to start with, which allows me to handle the dough less.

DIRECTIONS

To Make the Cinnamon Streusel

In a small bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix in the cream and melted butter. Set aside.

To Make the Scone Bread

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Generously spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with non-stick baking spray and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Add the butter cubes and pulse until the butter is the size of peas. Do not pulse too much – you don’t want to overwork the butter and form clumps.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and vanilla and almond extracts. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined, again being careful not to overwork the dough.
  4. Transfer the dough onto a generously floured surface and pat it into about a 6 by 12 rectangle, or a long rectangle about 1-inch thick. Cut the rectangle in half lengthwise, then in 4 even pieces widthwise to give you 8 small rectangles. Sprinkle streusel on half of the dough pieces. Flip a non-streuseled piece of dough onto a streuseled piece and place them into the pan like a sideways lasagna. Continue to add the dough-streusel layers to the pan until it is full. Gently spread out the dough, if necessary, brush with egg wash, and sprinkle the top with the remaining streusel.
  5. Bake the bread for about 40 minutes. Cover the loaf with aluminum foil and bake for another 10 minutes. This will allow the bread to continue cooking without the top burning. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Let the bread cool for at least 15 minutes, or until the pan is cool enough to touch. Invert the bread from the pan onto a cutting board. This bread is especially delicious when served warm.

Double Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies (Perfect for a Summer Picnic!)

This post has been sponsored by Frito-Lay. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you so much for supporting the sponsors who help to make Glitter, Inc. possible!

Now that the weather is finally starting to warm up, I’m breaking out our picnic basket, stuffing it with goodies, including the most amazing double chocolate potato chip cookies, and heading to the beach. We like to keep our picnics simple: chips or bread, cheese, nuts, plenty of fruit, sometimes I’ll mix in hard-boiled or deviled eggs, and an easy-to-throw-together cookie or dessert; a.k.a. finger food. We also bring hats, a blanket, throw or scarf to sit on, sunscreen, and a few shovels and buckets for Scarlett.

We recently discovered Jordan Lake here in Durham, and although it is technically a lake, there are seven sandy beaches scattered throughout the 14,000-acre property. It’s probably the closest I’ve felt to home since being here in North Carolina and I relished every second of the warm shoreline. I’m guessing it will become our new favorite summer hangout, and so, easy picnics will most definitely be on the agenda all summer-long.

As for the double chocolate potato chip cookies, you’d be amazed at how simple this decadent dessert is to throw together. And for the record: this recipe was adapted via a recipe I found and re-created years ago here on the blog, aptly named the “Win Friends and Influence People Cookies“; so that should tell you everything you need to know. (You’ve gotta admire my 2011 photography skills!)

I added the LAY’S® Classic Potato Chips component because I can’t get enough of the salted dessert trend, and classic potato chips just scream “summer” to me. Trust me on this one: that sweet and salty crunch on each bite is pretty incredible. You can taste that subtle chip crunch on the finish and it feels like potato chips and double chocolate anything were just meant to be.

3-Ingredient Trader Joe’s Thai Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe

I keep an arsenal of super easy week nights meals up my sleeve at all times so that on days when I’m exhausted, but don’t really want to spend the money to order in or take out, I can throw together dinner in a few simple steps. I love an easy family meal that doesn’t cost a whole lot. I call that a dinner win.

Trader Joe’s is one of my favorite go-to suppliers of easy dinner solutions. And this 3-Ingredient Trader Joe’s Thai coconut curry chicken recipe – in addition to being unbelievably easy to make – is one of our family’s favorite recipes, any night of the week. I think it takes all of 5 minutes to prepare. Maybe less. Just give yourself a little wiggle room on cook time; it tastes best when it has time to really cook down and soften.

Sometimes, we’ll eat this once a week, when we’re really on a roll. Even the leftovers, re-heated in the microwave, are good. (Dare I say, better?) And the beauty of this coconut curry chicken recipe, is that you can easily add any veggies you have laying around, but it works just as well with just the chicken.

And seriously, this Thai coconut curry chicken recipe is stupid easy to make. I’m actually embarrassed to admit how easy it is to make, but I also wouldn’t want to deprive you of your new favorite dinner that you can make in just a few minutes time. So, you know, pretend to be impressed …

3-Ingredient Trader Joe’s Thai Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe

Makes 4 – 6 servings

INGREDIENTS

1 can lite coconut milk
1 package raw chicken breasts (3 per pack)
1 bottle Trader Joe’s thai red curry sauce
optional: add sweet potatoes, onions, bell peppers, potatoes, chickpeas, etc.

Serve With:
2 bags of Trader Joe’s frozen organic jasmine or brown rice

DIRECTIONS

  1. Pour the coconut milk and curry sauce in a medium or large pot, stir together, and add in the whole raw chicken breasts. If you want to add other vegetables, you can throw those in now too. (I often use raw peeled sweet potatoes – cut in thirds or fourths, and a whole onion – cut into large chunks.) Cook over low heat for about two hours.*
  2. When the chicken is cooked through, pull out the breasts and either shred it with two forks on a plate or shred it using a mixer (such a nifty trick!) and return to the pan. Allow it to simmer on the lowest heat setting until you’re ready to eat. Serve with cooked rice.

That’s it!

*FUN FACT: This also works really well in a slow cooker or crockpot – low heat for about 4-5 hours or until the chicken is completely cooked through.

The chicken and any other veggies you cook down – in our case, typically sweet potato and onion – become so soft, sweet, and tender, you’ll think you’re eating at a fancy thai restaurant, rather than on your couch in yoga pants.

Delicious Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

I’ve never been a huge breakfast person, but when you turn breakfast into dessert … and top it with syrup … I’m happy to join the breakfast and brunch fan club. I mean, it’s dessert, that comes with coffee; that sounds a lot like love.

I’ve also been wanting to try ricotta pancakes for months now. They’ve become somewhat trendy in the brunch world, and the combination sounded incredible in my book.

Our favorite baker and food contributor, Hope, took a shot at ricotta pancakes, but with her own spin, and the result is AMAZING. Say hello to lemon ricotta pancakes. I’m thinking these might just be perfect for Mother’s Day brunch.

Hope says: These lemon ricotta pancakes are hands-down my favorite homemade pancake! With a subtle but delicious lemon flavor, these lemon ricotta pancakes are slightly sweet with just a hint of tang. They are perfect combination of thick, fluffy, and tender.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Makes 12 to 14 4-inch pancakes

INGREDIENTS

2 large eggs
1 cup ricotta
¾ cup milk
3 tablespoons butter, plus extra for buttering skillet
1 ½ teaspoons lemon zest
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place half of the butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat until it is melted. Stir in the rest of the butter until all of the butter has melted together. This keeps your butter from being too hot when you add it to the wet ingredients later.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and ricotta. Stir in the milk then the melted butter, lemon zest, and vanilla.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until all of the dry ingredients are wet. It is fine if you still have a few lumps left.
  4. Heat your skillet or griddle to medium heat. Melt butter in the pan or on the griddle where you will pour the pancakes and spoon about ¼ cup of the batter onto the hot pan at a time, leaving a few inches between each pancake. When the tops of the pancakes are covered in bubbles and the edges are cooked (about 3-4 minutes), flip the pancakes and cook for a few more minutes (about 3), or until the undersides of the pancakes are golden. Depending on the ricotta and type of milk you use, your batter may be slightly thick. If it is too thick for your liking, gently press the pancakes down at this point. If you notice that your pancakes are cooking more quickly, reduce the heat.
  5. To keep pancakes warm when feeding a crowd, heat the oven to 200°F and place the pancakes on a baking tray as they come out of the pan. When you have cooked all of the batter, transfer the pancakes to a serving plate. Serve and enjoy!

Simple Ramen Noodles Recipe in Under 15 Minutes

A few weeks ago I was wandering the grocery store while Scarlett was at school (isn’t it amazing how much more leisurely a grocery shop can be without little ones in tow?) I stumbled upon boxed ramen broth – right where the chicken and vegetable broths are – and I did a double take. I had no idea ramen broth came packaged and ready to buy at the supermarket; but of course, I had to buy it. I mean, ramen is delicious, and at-home ramen noodles recipe sounds pretty awesome. Then I set off to get the rest of my ramen ingredients, focusing on a few favorites. Ramen noodles, of course, shitake mushrooms, bok choy, green onion, and eggs.

I am a ramen lover through and through, but despite loving to cook, I’ve never actually attempted homemade ramen because a traditional ramen broth can take hours and hours to make. To even the best chefs, making a truly fatty, salty, umami-dense rich ramen broth is a feat in and of itself. But the result is the ultimate meal-in-a-bowl and pretty near close to perfect comfort food.

Simple Ramen Noodles Recipe in Under 15 Minutes by lifestyle blogger Lexi of Glitter, Inc.

I’m not saying the original decadent ramen noodle dish isn’t worth the trip to your favorite local ramen house, but when you just want a bowl of hearty noodles (because, carbs) covered in endless topping options that give you the power to make a bowl your very own – from the comfort of your sofa, I might add – this simple ramen noodles recipe in under 15 minutes might just be the key to at-home ramen bliss.

Simple Ramen Noodles Recipe in Under 15 Minutes by lifestyle blogger Lexi of Glitter, Inc.

Ramen Noodles Recipe in Under 15 Minutes

Serves 2-4

INGREDIENTS

dried or fresh ramen noodles*, cooked as directed
ramen broth or vegetable broth
1 TB olive oil
2 green onions, sliced
1 cup shitake mushrooms, sliced
1-4 mini bok choy, quartered into long pieces
1 soft-boiled egg
sesame seeds

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS

bok choy
shitake or enoki mushrooms
pork belly or sliced roast chicken
scallions
bonito flakes
fresh spinach (blanch and squeeze all of the water out)
frozen spinach (defrost and squeeze all of the water out)
corn (canned, fresh or frozen)
bamboo shoots (canned or fresh) OR Bamboo Shoots in Chili Oil
dried seaweed
tofu (drained and cubed)
snow peas (blanched)
sliced Japanese fish cakes
fresh bean sprouts
chili oil
miso paste
soy sauce
sesame seeds

*I used dried ramen noodles for this, though admittedly, fresh ramen noodles are even better, but not quite as easy to find. Since falling for this soup, I’ve even ripped open one of those 25 cent instant ramen noodle packages and uses the noodles from the package, throwing away the spice pack. It all works.

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a small pan, heat olive oil over medium heat, sauté fresh vegetables like onions, bok choy, and mushrooms until golden brown.
  2. In a separate pot, heat your broth and cook noodles according to the package.
  3. If you like having a soft-boiled egg on your ramen, boil your eggs for 5-6 minutes, no more. (I usually cook mine closer to medium, but is purely preference.)
  4. Pour broth and noodles into bowls, followed by any protein and vegetables. Garnish with sesame seeds, and any soy sauce or chili oil, then place half the soft-boiled egg on top. Serve hot with chopsticks and a spoon.

NOTE: I went the pretty traditional route, topping my ramen noodles with shitake mushrooms, bok choy, green onion, a soft-boiled egg, and sesame seeds, but I’m looking forward to trying a whole variety of toppings as we add this simple dinner into our rotation. I’m definitely going to add sliced roasted chicken (something you can easily pick up pre-made at the grocery store) or tofu for extra protein in the future. Everyone loved having ramen at home, especially Scarlett, who was a big fan of slurping up the soft noodles.

Delicious Chewy Granola Bar Recipe: Soft Chocolate Chip Pretzel

Warm weather is here and I am all about no-bake snacks that kids (and grown-ups alike) will love. I stumbled across this chewy granola bar recipe, and made a few simple tweaks, to come up with a new household favorite. Between hubby and Scarlett, these dairy-free* soft chocolate chip pretzel granola bars were gone in a matter of days.

Hubby declared them “the best chewy granola bar recipe yet,” so there’s that.

How to make our favorite dairy-free soft chocolate chip pretzel granola bars. Click through for the easy recipe. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc

The texture to these granola bars is perfect – soft and chewy – and the saltiness from the pretzel and peanut butter plus the hints of sweet from the semi-sweet chocolate, makes these granola bars THE perfect snack. I actually cut our granola bars into “granola squares”; perfect for little hands.

*Scarlett can’t have any milk protein, so we’re always experimenting with vegan and dairy-free recipes, in case you want to check them out! While this recipe is not vegan because of the honey, it can be made dairy-free using dairy-free chocolate chips. We use Enjoy Life chocolate chunks and chips; they’re gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free, and totally delicious. They also bake incredibly well. Even Target carries them! Obviously, you can use regular semi-sweet chocolate here instead if you don’t need to keep the recipe dairy-free.

How to Make Our New Favorite Soft Chocolate Chip Pretzel Chewy Granola Bar Recipe

INGREDIENTS

2 cups rolled oats
2 cups twisted pretzels, crushed down to about 1 heaping cup
½ cup salted peanut halves
1 cup peanut butter (more as needed)
½ cup honey (more as needed)
1 teaspoon vanilla
chocolate chips (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Toss the oats, crushed pretzels, salted peanut halves, and chocolate chips (optional) together in a large bowl.
  2. Stir the peanut butter, honey, and vanilla together in a separate bowl until smooth and creamy. Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients in the other bowl. Stir until combined.
  3. Press the bar mixture into a 9×9 inch pan lined with parchment paper (9×13 will work – it will just yield wider, flatter bars). Freeze for 30 minutes. Pull out of the pan and cut into bars. You can also wrap the bars individually in freezer or parchment paper and ziploc bags for quick grab-and-go snacks. They can be kept in the refrigerator or freezer.

NOTES

If your bar consistency seems too dry or crumbly, add more peanut butter or honey, and add more oats or pretzels if the mix seems too sticky.

You can mix-in anything else you want to make these granola bars totally customized. (i.e., dried fruit, chocolate chips, more nuts, seeds, etc.)

Store-bought peanut butters like Jif or Skippy work best in this recipe because sometimes natural peanut butter is less sweet, less salty, and more oily. You can use natural peanut butter, just do your best to balance out the honey dry ingredients until you get the right consistency.
