You know these lazy, chilly, weekend mornings when you just want to lounge in front of the fireplace and munch on delicious-but-easy breakfast treats while snuggling with your kids? I know I can’t be the only one!
Since my youngest daughter is in school this year we don’t get as much snuggle time these days, so this recipe is a tribute to her: an ooey, gooey treat breakfast creation with golden brown biscuits, cinnamon and honey kissed cream cheese and peanut butter that’s got a bit of crunch to it for texture.
For this recipe texture is key, and for that we used Peter Pan’s new Simply Ground peanut butter. When it comes to peanut butter we’re careful to avoid things like high fructose corn syrup, so I’m glad to say that this new line doesn’t have any of that– or any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives! They just released this at Walmart. The NEW Peter Pan Simply Ground Original and Honey Roast is perfectly creamy with a bit of crunch– and we found it much easier to work with than a lot of natural peanut butters than we’re used to. With a texture just like freshly ground peanut butter, Simply Ground Peanut Butter spreads evenly on bread without tearing it.
Smooth and creamy with a bit of crunch! It’s perfect for dropping on top of your monkey bread because it’ll melt into all of those little crevices without disappearing completely.
Monkey bread, sweetened with honey and cinnamon, seems like the perfect pairing for bananas and peanut butter! All of the added ingredients just sit on top and ooze into all of the crevices, giving you bites of peanut buttery goodness and hints of sweet cream cheese throughout.
If you want to get a little indulgent, broil it with some brown sugar on top for a crispy topping.
How to clean a cast iron skillet
We use our cast iron all of the time, at least once a day. I’ve had people ask how we keep our cast iron clean. I really need to be more mindful to stay on top of keeping it in tip top shape! So do as I say, not as I do, and follow these simple steps for cleaning cast iron:
- Wash your cast iron by hand– no dishwashers, please! All you need to do is use hot water and a sponge or stiff brush. I’ve heard differing views on whether or not to use soap but I generally try to avoid it or use a mild kind if I find it necessary. To remove stuck-on food, scrub the pan with a mixture of coarse salt and water, it’ll help to remove any food that doesn’t want to budge.
- After you clean it, wipe it off and try to remove as much moisture as you can to prevent it from rusting or corroding.
- To keep your cast iron looking great, season it frequently by heating it up on the stovetop and rubbing oil (I’ve seen recommendations of vegetable, canola, flaxseed, or shortening) into it. You can also rub the oil in and put it in a high temperature oven for about an hour, then turn off the oven and let the pots sit in there while it cools.
