Apple Cinnamon Bread

A belated Happy New Year from One Recipe Two Kitchens.  Life has been busy and we’re finally able to post a new recipe for you to enjoy.

Chef Karen:  I saw this recipe listed on Facebook.  It looked good so I knew we had to try it.  This recipe is a very easy bread to make.  They actually call it a white cake which I could concur it is.  My only issue is that the recipe says it takes 30-40 minutes to bake.  Add 20 minutes to that.  I even had my oven at 355 degrees and it took longer than they suggested.  I’m sure this will be a hit no matter where you eat it; even if it’s in your own kitchen.  Enjoy 🙂

Chef Jonathan: This is such a nice quick bread to make on a cold Saturday when you just want to spend some time in the kitchen…..The apple and the cinnamon really go well together, and I love the inner layer of apple/cinnamon in the centre of the loaf. I agree that it took much longer to bake in the oven, I believe I had it in for 1 hour, 5 minutes, increasing the temperature twice, once to 360, then to 375. All in all, a great, easy quick bread to make, and very enjoyable by all!

Aside

Chef Karen: A friend posted this on Facebook. I needed to try it! I’m glad I did. It’s a very easy recipe. I like the fact that you make your own cake batter and not a boxed one. Even though I’m a busy person, I like making my own cakes better than boxed ones. It’s a nice coffee cake recipe that goes well with a morning cup of java or a night time cup of tea. I don’t have any hints to this recipe: just make it! You’ll be glad you did.

Chef Jonathan: I really like this recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Cake, it’s very easy and can be done in a flash! I really enjoy the marbled texture of the cake once swirled, and the glaze on top is a nice added sweetness that really brings it all together. This cake is a nice kitchen-table-top treat to be snacked on regularly, or share it with a friend! Enjoy!

Sausage and Hash Brown Breakfast Bake

<img src="https://onerecipetwokitchens.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/20130325-155828.jpg" alt="20130325-155828.jpg" class="alignnone size-fullThis week's blog is an original One Recipe, Two Kitchens recipe. It was inspired by a good friend who served us something similar on Pancake Tuesday night for dinner. I'll post the recipe first and then we'll talk about it.

Sausage and Hash Brown Breakfast Bake

2 T olive oil

1 onion – chopped

½ lb of ground Italian sausage

½ t dried thyme

2 C frozen hash brown potatoes

5 eggs – beaten

1 pinch to ½ t cayenne pepper (depending on your preference)

½ C milk

1 C shredded Cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

2. In a frying pan that can be put into the oven, heat the olive oil and then add the onions. Stir until soft then add the sausage. Break it up and fry it until there are no pink pieces left. Add the hash brown potatoes and stir into the sausage mixture. Put in the thyme and left them cook for about 5 minutes until the potatoes are thawed.

3. Meanwhile, put the eggs into a bowl, beat them then add the milk and cayenne pepper. Mix well.

4. Pour the egg mixture into the frying pan with the sausage and hash brown mixture. Place in the oven for about 20 minutes.

5. Test for doneness by picking at the eggs with a fork. If they are set, add the cheese and bake for about 5 more minutes. Serve immediately.

Chef Karen: This is a very easy recipe. It’s a good done for kids to help with on a weekend when you got a little time. I like it because the eggs don’t take long to bake. I’ve made some egg recipes where it has to bake for up to an hour. Not so with this one. If you don’t have a pan you can put in the oven, any glass pan will suffice.

Chef Jonathan: Love this recipe, this is my new go-to breakfast casserole meal. It’s extremely easy to make, and it doesn’t take very long either. I love the combination of pork sausage, potatoes, eggs and cheese, which I realize isn’t revolutionary, but I think that’s what makes this recipe perfect. Of course, I added more cheese than suggested, but that’s nothing new. Instead of putting the sauteuse pan directly in the oven, I transferred to a casserole dish first, for easy storage later. I recommend this to anyone and everyone looking for a new breakfast meal, and enjoy!
