Amid the bustle of Thanksgiving Dinner preparations – slicing celery and chopping onions, peeling pounds of potatoes, roasting the turkey – Thanksgiving breakfast is often pushed aside. We grab a quick bowl of Raisin Bran, or steal a thin slice of pumpkin pie, and continue with the morning’s chores.

As a breakfast alternative, on Thanksgiving Eve I like to bake a tempting coffee cake to set on the counter. It makes a great breakfast offering to any potential pumpkin pie thieves (including me!). Best enjoyed with a mug of fragrant, hot coffee, or a tall glass of cold milk. Here’s a family favorite from the Krusteaz website.

CINNAMON APPLE PECAN CRUMB CAKE

  • 1 package (21 oz) Krusteaz Cinnamon Crumb Cake Mix (1 pouch each cake mix and cinnamon topping mix)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350° F. Place full pouch cake mix, 3/4 cup cinnamon topping, egg, sour cream and water in medium bowl. Stir until moistened. Fold in chopped apple. Spoon batter into lightly greased, 9-inch round pan. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon topping over batter. Top with pecans. Bake 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Let cake cool 10-15 minutes before removing from pan. Makes 12 servings.

In spite of the current faltering economy, the H1N1 virus, and other tragedies, we in America have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We live in a free nation, with freedom to set our own goals, our own course. As we gobble down turkey and stuffing, and nibble at the pumpkin pie, let us ponder all that is good in our lives and give thanks!

May you and your family enjoy a most blessed Thanksgiving!

A thought

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" ........... "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" ...... "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. ... Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” ...... ― A.A. Milne
