Need a new weekend baking project? This enriched dough is full of dried blueberries soaked in Amaretto, sliced almonds and a generous sprinkling of cardamom. Topped off with cardamom sugar right before it bakes, these gorgeous loaves are a new breakfast favorite for the week.
We’ve been celebrating fun food holidays all month long, and we’re wrapping it up with this cozy and comforting breakfast casserole for National Blueberry Pancake Day, which is January 28th. Instead of just a blueberry pancake, we took pancake batter (with frozen and dried blueberries), baked it off in sheet pans, layered it in a casserole dish and poured a lemon cream cheese sauce over it to soak up as it sits overnight. So, mark your calendars, make your grocery list, do your prep work, and wake up this Friday with a pancake casserole ready to put in the oven.
Strawberry Rosé Granita was a bonus recipe from awhile back. But it is so refreshing and the perfect make ahead summer dessert that we decided to bring it back as a permanent recipe. We also added in a blueberry version with limoncello and white wine. Hello summertime!
Granita is an easy frozen treat that doesn’t require an ice cream maker. Just a pan, fork and a little periodic scraping. If you don’t have the juicer/strainer attachment, you could also puree the berries in the blender attachment and then strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds. But if you love berries as much as my family does, it is a great attachment! Also excellent for turning bumper crops of tomatoes into sauce during the summer, and apples into applesauce when autumn comes around.
