Elephant Ears

posted by Julie Evink on March 19, 2012

It’s time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal! If you aren’t familiar with this once a month I’m in a group of bloggers and we get assigned a different blog and get t pick a recipe try from that blog. We try out the recipe, write a blog on the recipe and then all reveal our blog posts on the same day. It’s fun and it introduces you to all kinds of fabulous new blogs!

This month I had Lick the Spoon. Louise at Lick the Spoon as all kinds of yummy, posts that are mainly desserts. I mean how can you not love a blog like that?

I picked out her Elephant Ears to try. I’ve never used a puff pastry before so I thought it would be fun to make a recipe with it. It was so simply and yummy. I made this for breakfast and added a powdered sugar glaze to the top of them. They disappeared quickly and my hubby said if there was another pan he’d eat them all to because they were fabulous. I love cinnamon rolls but I’m not a big fan of all the preparation that goes into them. If you are looking for a quick breakfast treat this one is it!

Elephant Ears
Printer Friendly Recipe

1 sheet thawed puff pastry
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter, melted

1. Using a pastry brush, coat one side of the thawed pastry with melted butter. Combine the sugar and cinnamon and generously spread over the butter.

2. Starting at one end, gently roll the pastry towards the middle. When you reach the middle, start rolling the pastry from the opposite end so the pastry rolls meet each other in the middle. Cut into 6 discs and place on a parchment lined or greased baking sheet.

3.  Lather with the leftover butter and place the oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes until puffy and golden.

4. If you want to top it with powdered sugar glaze (mix a little milk and powdered sugar together).

    Yum. Just hopped over here on the blog hop and now salivating. I’ve had elephant ears in a bakery before but I’ve never made them at home. Your version looks delicious and let’s be honest, everything is better with a sweet sticky glaze.
