Berry Granola Pancakes Recipe

Wrap Text around Image Hey guys, today we'll be showing you all how to make our Berry Granola Pancakes using, Aunt Jemima Pancake mix. I'm warning you now, you'll probably never make normal pancakes again after today. But that's a good thing right?! We experimented with this recipe a few times before getting it perfect. So I can honesty say, you'll love it. You'll be obsessed with it. You'll make it every pancake day with pride. Okay, okay well not everything I said but seriously, this recipe is simple and yet THAT serious! The only tip I have, is to make sure the ingredients are exactly what we said. Overbearing it, will ruin this delicious cake into a million pieces and it'll fitter away like it never happened. And we don't want that! Also, your pan should be set to medium high heat. And make sure to turn down your pot after the first batch. You'll probably get about 6 from these. ... Enjoy:  Video Link

Full Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix (NOT the one that says just add water)
  • 1/2 cup of Granola crushed we used, (Love Crunch's Dark Chocolate Raspberry)

How to make Baked French Toast

Wrap Text around Image Hey guys, we're back. Well not all the way back but kind of back and that's the best way I can put it :) So a few weeks ago I tasted for the first time, Baked French Toast. But I wasn't really sure how to make it myself. So I started playing around with a few ingredients and tested it out a few nights ago and it turned out amazing. So amazing that we just had to share with you along with some neighbors that tried some and immediately asked for the recipe. We actually ate this for dinner and it was quite fulfilling. Personally, with our version you don't even need syrup but you can add it if you want. The only tip I have is to make sure to start watching it in the oven around 45 mins or so. I actually took it out and had to put it back in for an additional 15 mins, but my oven is really funky that way--so be watchful. We had ours set at 365 degrees. Three other things, you can use day old bread for sure,  make sure to stick your butter in the freezer for at least 15 mins, and use baking spray for the pan. Do enjoy:  Video Link

Ingredients:

Filling:
  • 8 Bread Slices
  • 1/3 cup of Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 tsps of Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 tsps of Pure Vanilla Extract

Toppings:
  • 2 tbsps of Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of Ground Allspice
  • 1/4 cup of Flour
  • 1 stick of Cold Butter

How to make a Pumpkin Spiced Apple Pie

Wrap Text around Image HAPPY HALLOWEEN!, just uploaded a how to on making a Pumpkin Spiced Apple Pie. This is our last episode of the Season of Pumpkins. We were actually really trying to debate if we wanted to add an actual pumpkin pie and then top it with apple OR this amazing one right here. A few tips, make sure that the flour, Crisco, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, is super cold. Crust tends to work better when everything is super cold. Notice how we said Ice cold water, the trick to that is to put the water in the freezer 30 mins prior to preparing. We even let the pastry cutter sit in the fridge for awhile. Now, this pie has to sit and I mean literally sit for hours until its completely cooled. I know its tempting to dive right on in, however you'll thank us for it later if you let this pie sit. Personally, this pie is better cold but warms good to just not too warm. To not brown the top part of the crust too much, check it around the 40 min mark, and lightly brush some egg wash on it. Do enjoy:  Video Link

Ingredients:

Crust:
  • 3 cups of All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of Crisco
  • 1/2 tsp of Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of Ground Pumpkin Spice
  • 1 Egg
  • 5 tbsps of Ice Cold Water
  • 1 tbsp of White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp of Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of Salt

Filling:
  • 5 Apples (Gala, Fuji, Delicious, or Granny Smith)
  • 1/2 cup of melted Butter
  • 1 tsp of Salt
  • 1 tsp of Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of Ground Pumpkin Spice
  • 1 tsp of Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp of Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3 cups of Granulated Sugar
  • 3 tbsps of Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp of All-Purpose Flour

How to make Pumpkin Brownies with Walnuts!

Wrap Text around Image Just uploaded a quick how to on making some moist, irresistible Pumpkin Brownies. This is episode 3, of the Season of Pumpkins.. We honestly can't believe how amazing these turned out. They were like a bite of heaven, melting in our mouths and not in our hands. Anyways, we were supposed to share these last week however, we've been extremely busy recording and fighting a cold. My only tip for these are to make sure that the brownies have fully cooled before cutting. I know some of you love that warm brownie but trust me, after adding the pumpkin mix, you'll thank me later ;). Also keep in mind that cooking time depends on your stove. If your oven gets really hot at 350 degrees then try it at that setting, but I wouldn't recommend it because again you're adding a pumpkin mix. Oh before I forget, make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature ... Enjoy:  Video Link

Ingredients:

Brownie Mix:
  • 1 cup of All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup of Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup of Sugar
  • 1 tsp of Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp of Salt
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup of Chopped Walnuts
  • 4 tbsps of Melted Butter

Pumpkin Mix:
  • 1 cup of Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 cup of Sugar
  • 1 tsp of Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp of Ground Cloves
  • 1/2 tsp of Ground Cinnamon
  • 4 ounces of softened Cream Cheese
