Baby Shower Recipes.

I have received a few requests for the recipes I used in my sisters baby shower brunch. I am always happy to accommodate such sweet friends. Here you are:

Aunt Phyllis' Old Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls

3 1/2 C. Warm Water
2 T. Instant Yeast
1/2 C. Powdered Milk
3 Eggs
1 T. Salt
1/2 C. Sugar
1 C. Oil
12 C. Flour

Mix together all ingredients in order given. Let rise until double. [I made my dough around midnight and let it rise until about 5:30 am, it was perfect]

1 1/2 C. Melted Butter
2 C. Granulated Sugar
1 C. Brown Sugar
1/4 C. Cinnamon

Mix butter, sugars, and cinnamon. Roll out dough and spread filling over surface. Roll up tight. Cut into 1 1/2" lengths. Place 12 rolls per 9x13 pan. [I only put 8] Let rise until double. [I let the rolls rise about 3 hours and they were nice and big.] Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Let cool.

1 C. Butter
1/2 C. Milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. Maple Flavoring
3 C. Powdered Sugar
1/2 pint Sour Cream

Melt butter and milk together. Mix in remaining ingredients. For a thicker glaze, add more powdered sugar.

Breakfast Casserole [from my friend Kristin]

1 large pkg. Frozen Shredded hash browns, thawed
1 cube butter, melted
1 lb. ham, cubed
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
8 oz. Jalapeno pepper jack cheese , shredded
5 eggs
1 cup milk
Salt and pepper

Instructions: Put hash browns in 9x13 sprayed pan. Pour melted butter over. Sprinkle with salt and pepper [use sparingly, the ham adds salt to the casserole also.] Bake at 425 for 25 minutes. Layer ham and cheese mixture on top of hash browns. Mix eggs and milk. Pour egg mixture on top of hash browns. Bake at 375 for 40 min. Serve with with scallions, fresh salsa, tomatoes, sour cream, and cilantro.

Note: you can bake the hash browns the night before.


  1. Ooh, thanks for the recipes. That casserole looks so yummy.

  2. I think I'll give that casserole recipe a try....yum!

  3. these rolls are like the ones my mom use to make. MMMMM, I can just smell them.

    And I just wanted to shout out that I'm an LDS member too!
    How nice to find that out about you.

  4. I can't wait to try those cinnamon rolls!

  5. Is your aunt Phyllis Mason? And does she have a cookbook called Phyllis's Favorite Recipes?

    My sister gave me that cookbook as a wedding gift and had no idea where it came from. I am going to make the cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning. They sound so delicious.
