Do you have a jar of cinnamon in your spice rack? What do you use it for? Do you pull it out just for baking, or do you use it in a variety of ways? I realised last week, when I needed to buy a new jar, that I use it quite a lot. I put cinnamon in my morning banana smoothies, in overnight oats, in lunch-box baking and it also gets used in dinner dishes, such as Prawn Biryani. Cinnamon sugar is also a favourite on toast, for a sweet breakfast treat on the weekend. It also gets used in these 3 easy recipes, below, which I make frequently with my daughter as they are so quick and taste delicious. The cinnamon flavour isn't too overpowering, so the whole family can enjoy the subtle cinnamon taste.

You can't beat the smell of cinnamon cooking in your home!

4-Ingredient Mini Cinnamon Pastry Scrolls

Ingredients: 1 sheet puff pastry (thawed), 1/4 cup raw sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1 egg (stirred). Icing sugar optional.

Preheat oven to 220 degrees, fan-forced. Line a tray with baking paper. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Lay the pastry sheet flat and use a teaspoon to scatter half of the sugar mix all over the pastry. Press down with your fingers. Drizzle the egg over the top of the sugar mix and spread the egg all over the pastry using your fingers. Ensure you get into every corner. Sprinkle the remaining sugar mix over the egg mix and press down with your fingers. Starting at one long end, roll the pastry up as tight as you can. Use a sharp knife to cut the roll into slices, approx. 3cm wide. Use a spatula to lift them onto the baking tray, leaving space between each one. Bake for 10 minutes until golden. Serve warm with icing sugar sprinkled over the top. See here for a full article.

Easy Oat & Cinnamon Pancakes

Ingredients: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup milk, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup plain flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon cinnamon

In a medium bowl, add the oats and milk and put aside for 15 minutes for the oats to soften. Add the eggs, flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Spray a non-stick fry pan with olive oil spray and add 2 -3 tablespoons of the mixture to make each pancake. When the pancakes start to have small bubbles on the surface and look a little brown underneath, flip them over and cook the other side. Repeat for all of the mixture. Serve with honey or maple syrup and top with strawberries and blueberries. See here for a full article.

4-Ingredient Pear Cake

Ingredients: 820g tin of pears, 340g packet of vanilla cake mix, 3 eggs (divided into 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg), 1 Tablespoon cinnamon sugar (or 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 1 teaspoon raw sugar mixed together)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees, fan-forced. Line a 23cm cake tin with baking paper. In a mixing bowl, add half of the juice from the can of pears and pull out half of the sliced pears. Roughly chop up the pears into smaller chunks. Add the cake mix, 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg to the bowl. Mix to combine. Pour the cake mixture into the cake tin and then slice up some of the remaining pears to decorate the top. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to your liking. Bake for 50 minutes or until cooked in the centre.
