For my tea today, I am sharing the wonderful electric tea kettle that I chose from winning a $100.00 Williams-Sonoma gift card from Michael Lee West at Rattlebridge Farm. Michael Lee is such a generous and kind person, and she is also the host of Foodie Friday. I have a butler's pantry between my kitchen and dining room and I have it set up now as my tea station.
An electric tea kettle is so quick in preparing the tea water. THANK YOU Michael Lee! I will think of you each time I use my new kettle, and which for me, is several times a day! It's so shiny and pretty, don't you think?
I was gifted this pretty mug with a picture of my newest granddaughter. Isn't this adorable? I'm going to sip some cinnamon vanilla tea from Trader Joe's.
In looking for a recipe to use a package of cinnamon chips that I had in the pantry, I found this wonderful recipe at Barbara Bakes . It has such great flavor and it's like eating a snickerdoodle in bread form!
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 1/2 cup cinnamon chips (1 pkg. Hershey's)
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350º. Spray the bottom of two 9 x 5" loaf pans with cooking spray that has flour. (I actually used 3 mini loaf pans and one 7 x 3 1/2" loaf pan. Barbara used 5 mini loaf pans.)
- In a medium bowl, whisk together 3 cups flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and 2 cups sugar, until fluffy, about two minutes. Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla and sour cream and mix to combine. Add flour mixture and mix just until combine. Do not overmix.
- Coat the cinnamon chips with 2 tablespoons flour and stir into batter.
- Spoon batter into greased pans (Don't fill more than 2/3 full.)
- Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the batter in the pans.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until a toothpick inserted into a crack in the center of the loaf comes clean. Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Remove from pan and let cool completely before serving.
