Can you smell this amazing cinnamon sweet bread? If only there were a scratch n sniff screen.
This yummy treat is Monkey Bread.
I made this for my kids during the school holidays.
Have you had Monkey Bread before? It is balls of dough smothered in a brown butter sauce and cinnamon sugar then after it has been baked you cover it in a sweet, sticky vanilla glaze. It’s delicious, gooey and oh so good!
You need to prepare the dough for this recipe the day before, and you put it in the fridge. Overnight it rises in the fridge so in the morning you just need to roll the dough into little balls.
So what do you think of this yummy gooey warm goodness?
My kids were hanging around the kitchen waiting for the Monkey Bread to cool so I could drizzle it with the glaze. You just want to make sure the Monkey Bread has cooled slightly as you don’t want the glaze to melt.
Monkey Bread is a pull apart of sticky bites of goodness. We devoured this warm, and we found it was best eaten on the day. And just a little warning: there might be some licking of sticky fingers.
Mum, can we have some more, please….
I think these French Toast Bites have to be one of my favourite breakfasts at the moment. They are simple to make and just use a few ingredients. I used a loaf of home-made bread that I had baked the day before. I cut it into nice thick slices and then into bite size pieces. You cover them in an egg and milk mix then brown in a frying pan. Once cooked they get covered in a sugar and cinnamon mix. The first two bites didn’t make it to the plate as I had to test them!
The kids had maple syrup and icing sugar on theirs while I added some fruit to mine. After everyone had finished breakfast, there were a few left, so I just left them out on a plate and every time we went by the plate one of us grabbed another one. They were very nice just on their own without any toppings.
I am going to be making these again soon, and I will take some more photos to show you how easy they are to prepare. I was short of photos for this yummy recipe as the school holidays was full of sleep ins and late breakfasts. The kids were very hungry the day these were made, and they asked “do you have to take photos, we are hungry!”

My kids love pancakes. If they could, they would have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A while ago when it was Pancake Tuesday, I made pancakes for dinner, and we had all the trimmings. The kids thought that was ace and have since requested when can we have that again!
I am always on the look out for a yummy pancake recipe. I have tried a few and have even tried putting together my own recipe. I know when the pancakes haven’t turned out as the kids will tell me that they weren’t that good, or they were better than the last pancakes I made. They are very good at telling me yay or nay. I have my own taste testers!
I came upon this recipe while looking on Pinterest and decided to give this one a go. Well, the pancakes turned out great. They were fluffy and soft. They rose quite well and tasted really good. We like our pancakes fluffy and to have a bit of height. The kids said that these were the best pancakes that I have made so far.

*This is a Nuffnang product talk for Uncle Tobys Quick Sachet Oats (all opinions and text are my own)From Monday to Friday every morning is chaotic in our house. The kids wake up at 6.00am, and that’s when our day starts. There is packing lunch boxes, making everyone’s breakfast, getting dressed, brushing teeth and combing hair. Sometimes everything runs smoothly, and I even get to sit down and eat breakfast with them. But there are days when it seems like the clock is in fast forward mode, and it’s all go go go! When those days come about, I wish we had a quick and easy breakfast that the kids could make themselves.I was given some Uncle Tobys Oats Quick Sachets to try and I am so glad we gave them a go. They are a convenient and tasty oats options, perfect for busy individuals and families. The kids got their bowls and spoons out. They grabbed a sachet of quick oats, cut the top off and poured the oats into a bowl. They poured some milk in, gave it a stir and popped them in the microwave on high for 90 seconds. Once done, the kids gave them another mix and allowed to cool before digging in. We all found them easy to prepare and mess free. The kids really loved them and wanted to go back for a second bowl. They have a great fruity taste and have no artificial colours or flavours. Great for our chaotic mornings!
Uncle Tobys also asked us to explore what our idea of a dream/ideal morning would be. We decided to have a little fun and make a couple of videos.
This is what our dream morning would look like when having breakfast:
