As I type this we are getting our first winter storm and I am listening to a beautiful acapella choir singing Christmas carols. I have my Christmas tree lights on, and my daughter is down for a nap. I just brought my dogs inside because I can see our first winter storm coming from the west. It is windy and blustery outside, and the western hills are under a rainy-grey blanket which will soon enshroud our home as well.
This morning was a morning to stoke the oven fire. I wanted to make something warm, festive and easy, and these little Christmas Breakfast Bows fit the bill. I didn’t go overboard decorating these today. Only some butter, some sprinkles, and some sugar dusted on top. They were fun to eat, as my daughter first called them doughnuts as she watched me cut the dough, and then was delighted to find them in the shape of Christmas bows! The leftover doughnut “hole” we called Christmas ornaments.
These bows are basically a quickbread and are similar to biscuits. They are quick, easy and fun to eat decorated or sprinkled with more cinnamon and sugar. However, they are versatile in that the cinnamon and nutmeg in the dough is light and would also pair well with a sausage gravy. What a pretty and yummy bread to serve on Christmas!
So how about you? What do you like to serve for Christmas day breakfast?
