Mr. Bran Bakes with Bisquick: Breakfast Pinwheels
Mr. Bran, top chef, has decided to help me out for Vegan Mofo by offering up some of his favorite recipes! Now, as we know thanks to Calpernia Addams, there is no shame in Bisquick. So each Thursday Mr. Bran will don his wee chef hat and mix up some Bisquick breakfast in the kitchen while I laze about on my chaise. This morning I will be huddled under blankets in bed while the pool boy makes tea. Mr. Bran emphatically does not do tea.
Today's recipe is for almond pinwheels:
2 1/4 c Bisquick
1/2 c soymilk
1 T Earth Balance softened
1/4 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 c almonds
1 T EB melted
-Mix the Bisquick and soymilk to form a soft dough. Knead a few times on a surface lightly dusted with flour or more Bisquick.
-Press or roll the dough out into an 8X11 rectangle.
-Spread the softened EB onto the dough. Mix the sugar, cinnamon and almonds together and then sprinkle on top of the EB.
-Roll up the dough on the 11 inch side to for a log. Slice into about 9-11 pieces and place on a baking sheet. Brush slices with melted EB
-Bake at 4oo degrees for about 8-10 minutes. Eat.
Mr. Bran exhausted after so much kitchen work.
The Verdict: These are pretty good. Bisquick makes really light baked goods so they are very airy.
