Cinnamon Roll Cake + Giveaway!

Cinnamon Roll Cake + Giveaway!

January can be a bit of a downer.  I’m here to make it brighter though.  With cake and cookbooks.  Sounds like a win to me.

Let’s start with the cake.  It’s my New Year’s Day tradition to make cinnamon rolls, but this year, I wanted something a little different.  So I made a cake.

Cinnamon Roll Cake + Giveaway!

It starts with an unassuming vanilla cake.  What really makes this shine is the gooey swirl of brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter.  It makes the whole cake moist and practically melt in your mouth, whether hot out of the oven or cooled to room temperature.  In fact, this is one of the few things I’ve made that I actually like better cool.

Then it gets topped with a simple vanilla glaze, some of which soaks into the cake.  I pretty much wanted to grab a fork and eat this straight from the pan.  It’s perfect for breakfast or dessert … or even a snack.  I may have even eaten it for lunch.  Move over cinnamon rolls – this cake taking over!

Massive Cookbook Giveaway!

Massive Cookbook Giveaway!

Now onto the giveaway.  I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers – The Cooking Actress, The Spiffy Cookie, and Wishes and Dishes to giveaway some cookbooks.  Eleven cookbooks to be exact.  They cover appetizers to dessert and everything in between.  They are from famous chefs like Tyler Florence and Mary Berry and bloggers like Sally McKinney and Averie Sunshine.

I know they will inspire you to get in the kitchen!  Use the widget below to enter the giveaway.  Good luck!

Cinnamon Roll Cake + Giveaway!

Cinnamon Roll Cake + Giveaway!

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 18-24 pieces

Ingredients

Cake

3 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided

1 cup granulated sugar

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 ½ tablespoons baking powder

1 ½ cups milk (I used almond, use what you love)

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

½ stick unsalted butter, melted

2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Icing

2 cups confectioners’ sugar

2-3 tablespoons water

2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

Instructions

Make the cake. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9 by 13 inch pan. Line the bottom with parchment. Butter the parchment.

In a large bowl, stir together 3 cups flour, granulated sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter. Once well combined, pour into the prepared pan.

In another bowl, beat 2 sticks softened butter with brown sugar, remaining 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon until light and fluffy. I did this by hand but a hand or stand mixer will work as well.

Dollop the brown sugar mixture onto the cake batter. Use it all. Swirl it in using a knife. Bake cake about 30 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick comes out of the center clean or with a few moist crumbs.

Make the icing. In a bowl, stir together sugar, water, and vanilla bean paste, adding more sugar or water as necessary until a pourable icing is formed. Pour over the cake. Serve warm or cool completely in pan. Cake may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days or frozen in pieces wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in the microwave about 1 minute.

Pumpkin Spice Gift Box Giveaway!

Pumpkin Spice Gift Box Giveaway!

I might not be a fan of fall in terms of weather, but I love the food. I can’t get my hands on enough of those special limited edition foods that tempt me when I walk into the store and send me to more stores than I care to admit or count in search of them.

I’m super excited to tell you that for the first time ever Peanut Butter & Company has a special Pumpkin Spice peanut butter for all of us out there who are obsessed with everything pumpkin spice. I know you’re out there!

Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter

It has that smooth, creamy goodness that we all love about peanut butter with those warm spices that make fall tolerable. I feel like I need to hoard this though, because I don’t just want it at fall, and I know you don’t either. Dear PB&Co, please make this year round 😉

Oh, and you want to try it, right? Luckily, Peanut Butter & Company has offered to give one lucky reader a Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter aka #PSiloveyou gift pack, which includes the peanut butter, a giant coffee mug, a candle, and a recipe for a peanut butter pumpkin spice latte. You’ll never go to the coffee shop again.

In order to enter the giveaway, answer the question: What flavor of peanut butter should PB&Co make next?

Bob’s Red Mill Cookbook Review and Giveaway!

Lemon Chia Seed Pancakes

If you read my blog at all, you know I absolutely love Bob’s Red Mill products and use them all the time. My pantry is full of oatmeal, coconut, almond meal, quinoa, chia seeds and more. I seriously have a Bob’s Red Mill problem. Which if you ask me is a pretty good problem to have.

So when I was offered the chance to review the new Bob’s Red Mill Everyday Gluten Free Cookbook, I may have had a dance party at my computer. I was so excited.

Bob's Red Mill Everyday Gluten Free

After looking through the recipes, I love how versatile many of them are. The grains can be interchanged a lot, so if you don’t have millet in the pantry you can go with quinoa or something else. While some of the recipes do require a lot of specialty ingredients that it is tough to have on hand unless you use them a lot, many of them are easy to make and will definitely become staples in my recipe rotation.

I also had the chance to speak with the author Camilla Saulsbury. She has won numerous cooking contests and is seriously one of the nicest people. She knows so much about food, and during our short conversation I learned a lot of things.

Camilla wanted to write a gluten free cookbook because she noticed that when she ate these high quality foods she felt better and ran faster, and also because they are so tasty!

Carrot Bread

The cool thing about all of these recipes is that they don’t rely on gums and fillers to make delicious dishes. Instead Camilla figured out how to get back to basics and “strip away the nonsense.” That is totally how we should all eat most of the time, without all that added sugar and salt a lot of foods, gluten free or otherwise, have.

She has found it easy to get people to try some of these new to many gluten free foods like teff and sorghum, some of her favorites, by starting with a familiar preparation. Then people realize “you can make a difference in how you feel with what you eat.”

Something I was really interested to learn is that many of these so called ancient grains are alkaline so they help to balance the pH level in our body, making us feel better.

Camilla emphasized that we don’t have to eat these foods one hundred percent of the time, but adding them into our diets can help all of us.

Quinoa Chili

She gave me a few easy ideas to work them into my life and yours as well. Popped amaranth can be used to make a cereal style treat. Apparently that could even turn me into an amaranth lover.

Millet is a great place to start, she told me. I have a bag in my pantry and am excited to try it in baked goods after toasting it, cooking it so it’s creamy like polenta, and cooking it like couscous for salads, just like Camilla suggested.

Oats, she also noted are still rock stars because they are widely available and versatile. She suggested perhaps preparing them in a new way like a savory granola. Sounds good to me!

I know you’ll love this cookbook as much as I do, so the publisher has been kind enough to offer a copy to one lucky reader.

Nudo Italia Olive Oil Giveaway!

Nudo Italia Olive Oil Giveaway

 

Are you a fan of olive oil? I am. I use it pretty much every day. It is my go-to oil whether I’m cooking, or even baking. But when I shop for it at the grocery store, there are so many choices and I never know which ones are actually of high quality. Over the years, I’ve found my favorites, but recently I was introduced to Nudo Italia Olive Oil, and I have a new favorite for sure!

Nudo Italia allows people from all over the world to adopt an olive tree and then have the oil produced from that tree send directly to them. Nudo has selected artisanal olive oil producers in La Marche, Liguria, and Sicily to be a part of this program. They maintain complete responsibility for their farms, but they have financial security. And we get great olive oil. It’s a win for everyone!

Nudo Italia Olive Oil

People including Hollywood A-listers and ex-presidents have adopted trees. This holiday season it is the perfect gift to give the person who has everything. We all have at least one person like that on our gift list! Now you can adopt a tea garden as well for all the tea lovers in your life.

This is such a unique opportunity, and it is very affordable. I had the chance to try the garlic, basil, and lemon olive oils, and the flavor is amazing. I can without a doubt taste the garlic, basil, and lemon respectively, as they are actually stone ground into the oil. The garlic was my favorite, but if you know me and my love of garlic, you’re not surprised.

Nudo Italia Olive Oil

Luckily, Nudo Italia has been kind enough to offer a gift pack of the garlic, basil, and lemon olive oils to one lucky reader! I know you’ll fall in love with the oil after one taste and want to adopt a tree.

To enter the giveaway, answer the question: What’s your favorite way to use olive oil?
