Warm Ovens and Home-Baked Holiday Treats

Last week we brought you some delicious winter drinks, but now we’d like to turn our attention the baked goods of the holidays.  Our ovens are chock-full of holiday treats.  As you know, catering to the holidays is an important part of standing out as a business.  Baked good fresh out of your ovens signal “home for the holidays” to patrons, and provide a way to warm up on cold winter days.  Here are a few sweet and fruity as-good-as-a-bakery recipes for a menu that will keep your ovens busy and your customers happy.

Traditional ovens will work for any of these recipes, but you might try baking them in convection ovens as well for faster cook time!  Just make sure to adjust baking time as necessary.  Enjoy these tasty recipes and have a warm holiday!

Breakfast:  Berry Oven Pancakes
Take this breakfast-time favorite and re-shape it!  Use the small container of your choice, be it a 2-cup baking dish or a gratin dish.  Put a tablespoon of butter in the dish, bake for 3 minutes, then take the dish out, making sure butter fully covers the bottom of the dish, and add pancake batter.  Bake for about 13 minutes.  Spoon a berry medley or the filling of your choice into these bowl-like pancakes and serve warm.

Appetizer: Cranberry Orange Brie Crostini
A twist on the traditional crackers-and-brie combination, this creation is a great way to start a meal and celebrate the decadence of the holidays.  Just spread marmalade over baguette slices, add a thin slice of brie, and bake.  Set your oven’s timer for 4-5 minutes to melt the brie.  Take the slices out and top with dried cranberries and pistachios.  For a savory variation, replace the fruit and nuts with black forest ham, and bake under the broiler for about 3 minutes.  Ta da!  Instant hors de’oeuvres.

Dessert: Crunchy Oatmeal-Nut Apple Pie
Pie, as a holiday staple, can be found in many ovens this season, and is preferred by many over even the best cookie recipes.  Whether you choose to use a ready-made pie crust or you make one from scratch, this textured version of America’s favorite dessert will satisfy traditionalists and adventuresome foodies alike.  Simply mix whole-wheat flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Cut in 2 tablespoons butter until evenly distributed. Add orange juice concentrate for a hint of citrus, and nuts for more texture.  Simply bake an apple pie for 30 minutes, remove it from the oven, sprinkle the crunchy topping liberally over the pie’s fruit, and bake for another 20 minutes.
