I’ve been adding new recipes to my “want to bake” list. As I did, I noticed that many of the recipes I liked had similar variations on the original recipe. Here are some of the recipes – with their variations – that I want to try.
Mother Thyme shared a recipe for Cinnamon Roll Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. I liked her promise that it’s an easy but delicious cinnamon roll recipe. She also has a similar recipe for Chocolate Chip Cake with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frosting. Yum!
Sally’s Baking Addiction has a recipe for Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Muffins. Sally promises that you can use this basic recipe with a wide variety of add-ins like blueberries or nuts. I also like her variation of Sky High Apple Pie Muffins.
Not Your Momma’s Cookie has several recipes for ice cream where no machine is required. I love this idea of making homemade ice cream without an extra gadget. There’s a recipe for Snickerdoodle Ice Cream as well as Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream. Both use a similar base but have different add-ins. Both look delicious!
A Farmgirl Dabbles shared two recipes that are similar based on the variations of buttercream icing. You could try her Cream Wafer Sandwiches with Strawberry Buttercream Icing or her Fudgy Brownie Hearts with Raspberry Buttercream Icing. Or, you could substitute one icing for the other, since I’m more of a raspberry girl myself.
Akshayapaatram shared one recipe with several variations included. She shared how to make Homemade Extracts – Vanilla, Orange or Lemon. I think you could do this with even more flavors if you get creative!
The Pioneer Woman (Ree) has a delicious recipe for Cinnamon Rolls. I’ve made these multiple times and they are my new go-to cinnamon roll recipe. Now, I need to try some of her variations that include Caramel Apple Sweet Rolls as well as Blueberry Lemon Sweet Rolls.
All of these recipes reminded me that a good recipe can be tweaked for delicious variations. I’m looking forward to trying some of these recipes – and their variations – soon!
