Since we’ve been staying at home, we’ve been baking up a LOT of Disney recipes (and wearing our stretchy pants while we’re doing it, obviously).
And, although there are plenty of great Disney+ shows to watch and DIY activities to do, it’s okay to feel a little anxious about everything going on right now. Buuut, we’ve got some fun ways to help blow off that steam.
Food is our name and our game, so we’re here to show you how to stress-bake in the most Disney way possible!
Disney World OG Main Street Bakery Cinnamon Rolls
We’re starting off our baking game strong because — we have to admit — not a day goes by where we don’t think about diving into one of these ooey gooey pillows of deliciousness. We call them “Main Street Bakery Cinnamon Rolls” because back in the good ole days, you could grab one of these babies at Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom.
Starbucks has since taken over Main Street Bakery, but the fluffy cinnamon roll lives on in spirit at Gaston’s Tavern. Whenever we order at Gaston’s Tavern, we ask for some extra icing on the side. But this is your kitchen with your rules, so you add all the extra icing you please!
Warm Wild Berry Buckle from the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival
With the spring flowers popping up, we are really missing the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. And one of our fave Flower and Garden Festival treats is the Warm Wild Berry Buckle! It made its way to our Best of the Fest on multiple occasions because we just can’t get enough.
And now seems like the perfect time to make it for ourselves! Maybe we can’t find Pepperberry sorbet, but strawberry ice cream works just as well! You can even make it your own and add your favorite blend of berries! Just make sure you serve it warm with cold ice cream. BRB, now we need to go make some.
Jack-Jack Num Num Cookies
Get ready for you life to change! Alright, maybe it won’t change too much but have you tried a Jack-Jack Num Num Cookie yet?? Well our lives were changed when we first tried one of these deep-dish, decadent treats in Disney California Adventure. It was as if other cookies were suddenly too thin, cold, and dry.
You know, Jack-Jack, you’re a pretty impressive baker for an infant. And now, you too can enjoy a Num Num cookie from the comfort of home! Get ready to brown that butter and bake some Num Nums because your family will snatch these babies right up!
Soft Pretzels from Epcot’s Germany Pavilion
So maybe sweet stuff isn’t your thang — that’s cool with us! Might we interest you in a jumbo pretzel courtesy of Epcot’s Germany Pavilion?? These pretzels are soft, chewy, and perfect to dunk in some mustard or melty cheese!
You can make them in the classic pretzel shape or host a family competition to pretzel-ify your favorite Disney characters!
‘Ohana Bread Pudding
So maybe we have a little bit of a sweet tooth, but we are baking, after all! And we’re saying goodbye to all of our troubles (at least for a few fleeting seconds) as we dig in to this ‘Ohana Bread Pudding. If you have been following DFB for… any time at all… you have likely seen us mention the infamous ‘Ohana Bread Pudding from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort!
Although we wish so badly we could send you each a slice Oprah-style (everybody gets bread puddingggggg), we can’t. BUT, we can tell you how to make it for yourself! What else are you gonna do with that bunch of bananas slowly rotting on your counter? Maybe that’s just us, but we know we are for sure using ours for this bread pudding! 😉
We may be a teensy bit stressed with everything going on right now, but baking these Disney recipes can give us a dose of calm and a sprinkle of pixie dust we could definitely use! Keep calm and bake on, friends!
