When I was a little girl my mother used to surprise us with little breakfast treats. Sometimes it was cornbread pancakes. If you’ve never had them, for the love of all things good and delish, go buy yourself a box of Jiffy Cornbread mix and make some right now. Really, stop reading right now and go buy some. I’ll wait… Sometimes she’d surprise us with cinnamon buns. And she’d leave just enough icing in the container for us to dip our little fingers in and lick off. Really, isn’t that the best part of cinnamon buns anyway? This morning I decided to share a special treat with my family.
Like my mother, I used a cast iron skillet, lightly greased… Have you ever used a cast iron skillet? I remember watching my great grandmother use one and I just knew that someday I’d have one too, even though I was not one for cooking.
Watching my kids reach into the skillet to grab the cinnamon buns brings back such wonderful memories for me. Really, why don’t I do this more often?
What childhood treats do you share with your family?
