Whether you smell it in a bakery, the airport or in your own kitchen, the sweet smell of cinnamon is one of the most enticing baking aromas. Southern bakers are well-known for their quick breads, but almost all have a favorite recipe for soft puffy yeast rolls like porterhouse or pocketbook rolls, as well as the all-time favorite cinnamon rolls. Although, not in her day-to-day repertoire, my mother made delicious cinnamon rolls on special occasions. Soft yeast dough pinwheels filled with butter, cinnamon and sugar – nothing smells or tastes better, especially warm out of the oven. Even something as simple as cinnamon toast or a toasted, buttered biscuit sprinkled with cinnamon sugar has a comforting appeal.
The range of foods distinguished by the flavor of cinnamon is wide and varied – from classics like apple pie to ice cream. For a little twist on the apple cinnamon theme – one of our recipe contest winners created the Savory Apple Cinnamon Bacon Breakfast Cheesecake recipe which is sure to be a hit for your next brunch. The crust is made with Martha White® Apple Cinnamon Flavored Muffin Mix and filled with a bacon and sautéed onion cheesecake mixture – a sweet and savory delight.
French Cinnamon Muffins are an easy-to-make scratch recipe. Made with Martha White® Self-Rising Flour, the flavor profile is classic buttery cinnamon. And we cannot forget an all-time favorite family favorite – Snickerdoodles.
