GCC Recipe Swap

We've had snow the past few days which means board games and fires in the fireplace and goodies. Along with toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate, we made a batch of homemade elephant ears that made our eyes rolls back in our heads. They were SO good. The bonus is that the bread machine does nearly all of the work. And to add SOME sort of nutrition I do add some bran and ground flax to the mix.

Bread Machine Elephant Ears

Add to your bread machine on the dough cycle:
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 cups flour (I do 1 cup WW flour and 2 cups white)
  • 2 teaspoons yeast

When cycle is done turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll 1/8 inch thick. Cut into 2 inch strips and cut the strips into squares. Cover and let rest for about 10 minutes. Heat oil to360 degrees in a pan. Gently lower the dough into the oil. When golden brown on one side, turn and cook the other side. Remove from oil and let drain on paper towels. When cool brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

This looks fabulous! I'm always looking for something new to do with my breadmaker - it's my favorite appliance!

Elephant ears? Yum! I can't wait until my kids are a little older so I have an excuse to make fun stuff like that :)

Those were nice tips and I am already doing some of them. Another thing that I am doing is just to bring the money that I will prepare for the grocery. That way, I was able to stick on the budget!I just want to add that I think its better if its my husband who will go on the grocery store to shop, because he will just buy whatever I put on the list…no more no less…haha its better than when I am the one who do the shopping coz if its me, whenever I saw something that I feel like we need, I will definitely add it on the list…which is really bad of me. yay!
