Brunch Menu Part 1


November 6, 2017, posted by Gina – I will be sharing a few recipes for a brunch menu today and tomorrow. These may come in handy if you’re expecting out of town guests over the holidays. Today I am posting two recipes from this menu;  coffee cake (and not just any coffee cake but the Ultimate coffee cake) and fresh fruit with a very delicious fruit dip. Tomorrow I’ll post recipes for Asiago Sausage Rolls, Lemon Poppy Seed Cake and Easy Baked Eggs. Enjoy!

BRUNCH MENU

Ultimate Coffee Cake

Fresh Fruit with Marshmallow Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

Asiago Sausage Rolls

Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

Easy Baked Eggs

The following recipe for Paula Deen’s Ultimate Coffee Cake is fabulous, but I have a word of warning. I followed the directions and put 16 rolls in my Bundt pan, covered them with plastic wrap and then went to bed. When I woke up in the morning, I screamed as it looked as if this pan of dough was about to take over my kitchen. See for yourself…

My advice is to use 12 rolls instead of 16 – 18 as indicated on Paula’s original recipe. Your Bundt pan will not look nearly full enough but the rolls will rise and all will be just fine. The great thing about this is you do everything the night before and just bake it the next day. This gooey coffee cake has just the right amount of crunch from the pecans. Here’s the original recipe…

I have a confession. I had never, ever used Marshmallow Cream before this recipe. In fact, I did not know where it could be found in the grocery store. About a year ago I was at a garden club function where this dip was served and it was so delicious. I tried to find the person who made it to no avail. Last week I was trying to come up with some brunch recipes and I remembered this dip. After a quick search on the internet I found a recipe, though it’s so simple you really don’t need one. Get ready to love this!

Check back tomorrow for the other recipes!
