Perhaps it is difficult for us to imagine that there are people who do not like the roscón de Reyes, start the most magical day of the year with something other than one of the richest buns in Spanish gastronomy. I have to tell you that I have a couple of rare species like this at home so every year I look for alternatives to the roscón for breakfast on Three Kings Day with which to make it a special moment that is also for them.

Milk, vanilla and cardamom muffins

Milk, vanilla and cardamom muffins
  • Ingredients for about 10 units: 500 g of strength flour, 1 sachet of dry yeast or about 20 g of fresh yeast, 8 g of fine salt, 50 of unsalted butter, 275-280 ml of milk, 1 pod of vanilla, 2-3 cardamom pods or 1/2 teaspoon of ground cardamom, 35 g of sugar (best caster type), 1 L egg and 2 tablespoons of extra milk.

  • Preparation: Slightly heat the milk with the open vanilla branch and the crushed cardamom pods. Turn off the heat before it boils and let it cool. Put the strength flour in a large container and mix it with the dry yeast and salt. Add the butter, the sugar and half the milk. Begin to mix, adding more milk little by little, until the dough is smooth, soft but not excessively sticky. Knead vigorously for about 10-15 minutes, by hand or machine. The dough should be homogeneous, smooth, slightly moist, elastic and tender. Divide into 10-12 equal portions. To do this, it is best to weigh the entire dough and divide by the number of rolls that we want. This way we can weigh each portion to make sure we have the same size. Form a small ball with each portion, arrange on a tray and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand 30 minutes. Lightly knead each unit and form long rolls or small balls. Place them on a bread tray or a regular cookie sheet. Beat the egg with the milk and paint each muffin. Cover with a damp cloth and leave to rise for 60-90 minutes. Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Make a few fine cuts if desired with a sharp knife. Paint with egg again and bake for 12-15 minutes, lowering the temperature to 180ºC after the first 5. They must be golden on top and tender. Let cool completly on a rack.

Sugar-free, flour-free pancakes with just two ingredients

Pancakes without sugar and without flour
  • Ingredients for one person: 150 g of banana and 2 eggs L. Optional: vanilla essence, ground cinnamon and cocoa powder.

  • Preparation: Peel the banana, ensuring that it is a ripe one, at least just enough to crush it without problems. Chop and mash with a fork until pureed without large lumps. Add the eggs and beat everything very well until obtaining a homogeneous, thick dough. With the banana at its point, the pancakes will come out sweet and aromatic, but you can add spices or aromas to give it another point of flavor, at this time. A little vanilla or cinnamon would go well, even a teaspoon of pure cocoa powder if we want a touch of chocolate. Lightly grease a good skillet or non-stick griddle and heat on medium power. Add a portion of dough, wait a few seconds and push the edges with a spatula, to give it a more rounded and thick shape. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, until bubbles appear and the edges peel off. Turn carefully with the spatula and cook on the other side. If it breaks at first don't worry either, squash the dough to rebuild it, they will be just as rich. Continue until finished with the dough and serve immediately.

Ensaimada from Mallorca

Ensaimada from Mallorca
  • Ingredients for six units: 400 g of strength flour, 15 g of pressed yeast, 1 egg, 150 g of water, 120 g of sugar, a pinch of salt, c / s of lard and icing sugar to sprinkle.

  • Preparation: We slightly heat the water, put it in a bowl and undo the yeast in it. In a large bowl we put the flour and add the water with the yeast, the beaten egg, the sugar and the salt. Knead fifteen minutes or until we get a smooth dough. We make a ball, put it in a bowl greased with oil and let it double in volume, at least one hour. We knead it to remove the air and divide it into six parts. Knead each of them and stretch them a lot with the help of a rolling pin. When they are well stretched, we spread them generously with lard, we must be generous when forming this layer of butter on the dough. We stretch with our hands so that the dough is very thin, it may break but nothing happens. We roll forming a roll with each portion. Let the rollers rest until the dough loses its nerve, ideally one hour. Then we stretch the rollers so that they are as thin as possible. We line two baking sheets with baking paper and make a spiral on it with each portion. We must leave space between the curves of the spiral, so that when lifting the dough it does not mount, there must be a flat ensaimada not raised. We put the two trays in the oven with a cup of water and let the ensaimadas rise overnight or for about 10 hours. This step is very important, because the ensaimadas must ferment slowly so that they are good. After this time, we heat the oven to 200ºC and cook them for about 10-12 minutes. Once cool, sprinkle with lots of ground sugar.
