Atole is a masa based hot drink that is mixed with milk, water and cinnamon that is pure comfort. The texture resembles Malt-O-Meal or Cream of Wheat with more liquid that you can drink for a quick breakfast. You can add berries, brown sugar, honey or maple syrup to add a little sweetness and flavor. atole also has many health benefits such as providing good digestion, antioxidants, anti inflammatory properties and is gluten free. I like it with brown sugar and a sprinkling of toasted pinon nuts which gives it an earthy nutty flavor. If you eat healthy grains for breakfast, give atole a try. It’s delicious and good for you!

It’s that time of year again when I get a craving for sweet rolls. It must be the holidays, the chill in the air and a hot drink that make me desire them so much. I like to make them up ahead and freeze individually so that I can pull one out every so often. I love them with my morning coffee, afternoon tea or generally anytime, which is why I have to put them out of sight in the freezer or I might be tempted to have one every day. This years flavor is lemon blueberry, it’s not overly sweet but has a wonderful blueberry flavor with a citrusy lemon glaze. These two flavors just belong together. And the brioche dough is so light and tender, it practically melts in your mouth.
