Baking With the Buddy Club: Michigan June Cinnamon Rolls and Cinnamon Muffins

Day 1:

Cinnamon rolls!  I missed my flight.

Day 2:

Cinnamon rolls!  I hope my friends forgive me for serving breakfast at 11.  (Also for missing my flight.)

At least the icing didn’t look like sickly nose mucus this time.

Day 3:

Man Club went golfing, and we made muffins.

How we spent the rest of the day

We relaxed after all our hard work, and extensively discussed farts.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Banana Ice Cream

Recipe and ingredients here.




I would make this again, but probably wouldn’t feed it to anyone.  Not decadent enough.

Highly recommended for midsummer afternoon sugar cravings, though.

Cinnamon Sugar Swirl Banana Bread

Much sugar I sense in you.

This is what you do when you want to try it with peanut butter but can’t commit to putting it on the whole slice.

“it’s delicious!  lots so different”
– Leandro

mashing bananas with a fork
I need to get a potato masher. Bonus: my feet

3 smashy ‘naners
1/4 c oil
1/4 c plain yog
3/4 c shug (half white, half muscovado)
1 eggie-poo
2 tsp vanilly-pie
1 tsp baking soder
1/2 tsp salty salts
1 1/2 c fleeuuuuur
1/4 tsp nuttiemeg
1/4 tsp grated gingie-ginge
handful of dry rolled oats
plus butt-butt and more flour for the loaf pan

For the swirl:
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tbsp cinnamonniemonsterpants

(Recipe adapted from Lovin’ from the Oven.)

Preheat your oven to “medium.”  This is what Argentine oven knobs look like, so I have no idea what temperature this is.

muscovado sugar in a sieve
Pushing muscovado sugar through a sieve is a waste of time and will not accomplish anything

Mix the mashed ‘naners with the sugar, eggie-poo, yogz and vanilly.  Whisk thoroughly.  In a second bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, Arm & Hammer, bath salts, and spices).

Bring the dry and wet together in a union of eternal power and world domination.  Mix only to combine – do not overmix this shizz.

May I take a moment to mention how nice it is to have US standard measuring cups at home now?

ziploc tupperware
This was my old measuring cup…it holds 2 cups so just fill it halfway for 1!









In a baby bowl, mix together the cinn and sug to make the swirlie-whirlie.

Did you prep your loaf pan by buttering and flouring it?  If so, pour in half the batter.  Sprinkle a thick layer of the cinnsugswirl mixture over the batter in the pan, and then pour the rest of the batter over the top.  Sprinkle oats over the top to make it look pretty.

Take it to the oven for no idea I didn’t time it like 45 minutes?
