Banana Fritters with Spiced Glaze

I like to go all out on Saturday mornings. It’s really the only day of the week I can do breakfast up right with all the fixins’ since Monday thru Friday mornings are a mad dash of bodies, backpacks, missing socks, frantically gulped coffee and hastily applied mascara as I scramble to get my kids out the door to school. Sundays are pretty much the same except I feel a lot worse about yelling at my kids (for the fourth time) to get in the car when we’re heading out to church instead of school. Oh yeah, Christian Mom of the year right here! Anyhoo, now that I’ve outed myself, let’s move on to my most recent Saturday morning treat. Fritters. Deep fried, crusty on the outside, warm and soft on the inside fritters. Yum yum yum.

Everything But The Kitchen Sink Breakfast Bake

I love a good breakfast bake. It’s so adaptable. You can put just about everything in them. This is my base recipe for a perfectly filling and delicious morning meal. I’ve made it so many times I can practically do it in my sleep. Which is good, since I’m always throwing it together first thing in the morning. Yawn.

Homemade Bisquick

I don’t keep Bisquick in the house – mostly because I don’t really use it. Occasionally I find the need for it and am certainly not going to go buy a big box of it. This recipe saves the day. It yields about 3 and a half cups, which is usually enough for my purposes. It is easily doubled if you use Bisquick more frequently and would like to stop paying an arm and a leg for it.

Homemade Bisquick

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and stir with a whisk.
  2. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  3. Store mixture in airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 months.
  4. Use whenever your recipe calls for “Bisquick mix”.
