The Best Mardi Gras King Cake

The Best Mardi Gras King Cake

All About King Cake!

king cake

Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday, is a festive celebration that takes place before the Christian season of Lent. This annual event is a time for indulgence and revelry, and one of the most iconic treats enjoyed during Mardi Gras is the king cake.

Originating in France, the king cake is a sweet and decadent dessert that is traditionally eaten during the Mardi Gras season. It is named after the biblical three kings (or wise men) who visited baby Jesus on the 12th day of Christmas.

The king cake is typically made of a rich, brioche-like dough that is braided and shaped into a ring. It is then baked and topped with colorful icing and decorative sugar sprinkles in the signature Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, and gold. These colors hold significant meaning – purple represents justice, green represents faith, and gold represents power.

But what truly sets the king cake apart is the hidden surprise inside. Traditionally, a small plastic baby figurine is hidden inside the cake, and whoever finds it is said to have good luck and prosperity for the coming year. This tradition has evolved over time, and now some bakeries offer a variety of fillings such as cream cheese, fruit, or chocolate, in addition to the traditional plain cake.

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try making your own king cake, here is a simple recipe to follow.

The Best Sweet Potato Casserole

The Best Sweet Potato Casserole

This Sweet Potato Casserole is creamy and topped with a brown sugar pecan crust, just like at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

sweet potato casserole

One of our family favorites, sweet potato casserole, is often served at Thanksgiving dinner— and is as important as the ham and cornbread dressing. The secret is baking the sweet potatoes; that way, they retain more flavor.

The sweet potatoes are mashed with butter, brown and white sugar, milk, eggs, and spices. Then the mixture is topped with a crunchy pecan crust and marshmallows for the perfect blend of flavors and textures.

SHOP MY FAVORITE OVENWARE

If you have to pick sides, I’d suggest this Sweet Potato Casserole! It’s a great compliment to the traditional Thanksgiving turkey or ham and can be served at room temperature. The brown sugar pecan topping gives this dish an added touch of elegance. I’m bringing it to my family gathering this year and can just see the smiles on everyone’s faces when the smell hits the air.

Let me know what your favorite Thanksgiving side is in the comments! Be Well-Omniley

Baking a Cardamom Apple Pie For The Holidays

Baking a Cardamom Apple Pie For The Holidays

What better way to celebrate the holiday season with friends and family than with a delicious slice of pie? This Cardamom Apple Pie is sure to be a hit.

It’s so simple, fresh, and flavorful. Whenever I’m hosting, I like to prepare pies early in the day so they have ample time to cool before we’re ready to eat. It’s also a great way to make your home smell wonderful. To me, life doesn’t get much better than a relaxing conversation over a slice of pie.

apple pie

The best part of this recipe is using the apple peeler. I was able to get my apples peeled, cored, and sliced in less than 10 minutes. So as I told you, this recipe is sooooo easy and delicious.

The world’s best apple peeler and slicer!

The combination of apples, nutmeg, and cardamom in this pie is amazing. The apples in this recipe are thinly sliced, and you can use any type of apple you’d like, but I prefer something on the sweeter side with a crisp texture. My favorite types of apples for baking are Honey Crisp or Granny Smith apples. The cardamom adds an aromatic, warm flavor to this pie. If you don’t have any on hand, you can substitute ground cinnamon instead.

I used homemade pie crust, but you could easily use store-bought. This recipe is so easy and delicious that I think you’ll want to make it again and again!

It’s important to balance out the unhealthy indulgences of the holiday season and take a moment to appreciate the simple things in life. By treating ourselves to healthy and delicious baked goods made by hand, not only are we relaxing and enjoying our free time, we’re also learning how to make traditionally great dishes that our loved ones might otherwise never get to experience. This is a recipe I think is well worth trying out.

For all the apple pie lovers out there this holiday season, we hope that you have a wonderful time together with family and friends. Let us know if you enjoyed it in the comments below!

That’s when these salted caramel pumpkin cookies come in to save the day!

These cookies are super easy to make, but they taste like you spent hours in your kitchen slaving over a hot stove.

Easy Pumpkin Bread-Belle Omniley

Easy Pumpkin Bread-Belle Omniley

Fall will soon be here and the first thing on my mind is all the great fall foods. Some foods just taste extra special during the fall and winter time. Maybe it’s the weather or the holiday season; I’m not sure. Today I’m sharing one of my faves!

PUMPKIN BREAD RECIPE

The perfect fall treat, I honestly can eat pumpkin bread every morning. Paired with a delicious cup of coffee and tea, I’m in heaven. I finally tried Starbucks’ Pumpkin Bread for the first time last year and tried to replicate the recipe and it was a HUGE success.

 

How to Make Pumpkin Bread

Begin by sifting together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice together in one bowl.

In another bowl mix together, pumpkin puree, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and oil. Be sure to mix well.

It would be best if you used pumpkin puree; NOT pumpkin pie filling.

Pumpkin Puree vs Pumpkin Pie Mix

One of the main differences in puree is that it is only pumpkin as opposed to pumpkin pie mix it has been sweetened and flavored.

Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients gently. Add mixture to greased 9×5 loaf pan. 

Top with pumpkin seeds if you want to be like Starbucks. Pop in the oven and cook for 70 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool completely before slicing.

 

This is a wonderful recipe to enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
