27. Favourite herb or spice?
Without a doubt, my favourite spice is cinnamon. I love it so much! I always have it sprinkled on PB toast or PB/banana toast, and when it is called for in a recipe I always add extra. You cannot have too much cinnamon! Oh cinnamon, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love you as a cinnamon sugar doughnut. Really, these are the only doughnuts I care about, you can keep all your strange glazed doughnuts with crazy toppings. Cinnamon doughnuts are what it is all about. And the best cinnamon sugar doughnut is found in Melbourne, where Crumb's makes a sourdough cinnamon sugar doughnut you can only dream about. Thankfully in four weeks I won't be dreaming, I will be eating.
The cinnamon doughnut from Mighty-O in Seattle was my favourite for a long time until I tried Crumb's last year. It is still outstanding, even if it is no longer number 100.
I love you in a cinnamon scroll! Preferably without glaze, because who needs super sweet glaze when you have already got yummy dough and delicious cinnamon? I left the glaze off these ones that I made from Vegan Brunch.
But sometimes a cinnamon roll is so good, that I can forgive the glaze. Like this Chicago Diner cinnamon roll aka best cinnamon roll ever (but would be ever better without the glaze).
I love you with grains, like this Cinnamon Lime and Quinoa with Apricots and Almonds from Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan, to serve with savoury dishes.
Or to serve with sweet grains, as with Breakfast Porridge with Raisins from Blissful Bites. Sure, it says to add a generous dash of cinnamon, but we know that that means add a whole lot more! I haven't blogged this recipe before, so I had best give it a rating! It is a great mix of brown rice, quinoa, raisins, maple syrup and of course lots of cinnamon!
Snickerdoodles would be meaningless without you to coat their outsides.
You are also good on muffins. Or as cinnamon toast. Or any of the other million ways you make life better. Thank you cinnamon, for being you!
