Gingerbread Bundts with Cinnamon Glaze are great for a special weekend breakfast or a tasty treat after dinner! It is such a busy time of year, but I am loving all of it! I truly love watching my kids come down in the morning to find Sparkle, their little elf that has visited us the last two years. I adore their excitement for Christmas and the joy that shines in their smiles! It is truly amazing to see my kids “believe” and they melt my heart! Their wish lists are long with large items this year and oh my goodness are they going to be beaming when they wake up on Christmas morning. I can’t wait!!!
On top of the usual school, baseball, and gymnastics activities and daily routines, the to-do lists are never ending right now and I don’t sleep much anyways. But…when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to set the alarm a little earlier and make these for my family. The house smelled amazing and we loved them!!! My husband went right back for seconds. Don’t worry, I also fed them eggs and fruit!
