Do you have Christmas morning family traditions and favorite foods?
Do you listen to Christmas music and sip hot cocoa? Perhaps are you joined at the table by a child who is wearing their new superhero suit he received last night? 😉
Do you, like me, love the smell of cinnamon and sugar wafting in the kitchen while the kids excidendly play with their new toys?
I don’t want to miss a single moment of laughter, hot chocolate sipping, excited playing with new toys, and singing along to Christmas favorites. So I love to make our Cinnamon and Sugar Christmas Morning Cake a day or two before and have it ready to just pop into the oven on Christmas morning.
So I get to relax and enjoy every second of Christmas and we all get to enjoy this scrumptious holiday favorite. This cake truly the best! The sour cream and pudding make it so decadent and the cinnamon and sugar make it taste like Christmas.
We have so much to celebrate at Christmastime.
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Take a minute and let some of those precious names really sink in. Prince of Peace. Everlasting. Father. Mighty. God. Wonderful. Counselor.
Tell me some of your Christmas morning favorite traditions and recipes!
