Get your aprons ready girls! Your baking day agenda is all about creating homemade, nutritious breakfast foods for your family.
Breakfast is the hardest meal to prepare because we’re usually in a hurry and/or just plain tired. Sugar cereal is usually the go-to food because it’s easy. Well I am here to give you breakfast ideas that are an alternative to cereal and/or fast junk food for breakfast. And I know you and your family are going to love them. By devoting one day each week to baking you can feed your family well, save money, and control your ingredients. And you will have ready-made homemade foods on the quick! No matter what your family’s particular diet needs are, a baking day will serve you well and keep you organized! Just one day of work will pave the way for nutritious, easy, homemade breakfasts from scratch that normally would take most of the morning.
Here’s what I’ve made for the week and how I’ve prepped, prepared, froze, and set my week up for easy success.
My breakfast baking for the entire week (or two) that can be simply paired with nutritious eggs, sausage or bacon include:
2 batches of white sandwich bread, which makes:
- 2 loaves of cinnamon raisin bread
- 1 loaf sandwich bread
- 1 dozen Nutella swirl rolls
Basic buttermilk muffin recipe made three different varieties of muffins:
- Cinnamon and Sugar
- Granola, almond, and dark chocolate with an oatmeal streusel
- 1 dozen, make-and-freeze, buttermilk biscuits
White sandwich bread bakes up two loaves at a time in this recipe.
Light crispy crust on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside, this bread is perfect for toast and eggs, you can turn this recipe into cinnamon rolls, and/or raisin bread, too.
Cinnamon Sugar Raisin Swirl Bread
This amazing loaf is made with my basic white bread recipe, cut the dough in
Nutella Swirl Rolls
Using the white sandwich bread recipe, I made this Nutella swirl bread.
I used one half to make a regular loaf of bread the other for these rolls.
I made 3 different varieties of muffins with one recipe:
- Sugar and cinnamon
Make and Freeze Buttermilk Biscuits
Buttermilk biscuits shaped, not baked, and then frozen, make for quick fluffy biscuits when you want them! Simply bake frozen biscuits until golden brown. They are wonderful with some fruit and scrambled eggs, or a for a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit!
Prepping my fluffy, thick pancake recipe by keeping the dry ingredients in a airtight container with the needed wet ingredients printed on a sticky note, makes whipping up pancakes a snap!
