    Here's the sunshine cake

    I couldn't find the egg and ham braid in Casual Cooking, but here's the sunshine cake.

    Sunshine Cake

    1 lemon
    1 orange
    1 small carrot, grated (1/2 cup)
    3 eggs
    1 (16 oz) container sour cream
    1 (18.25 oz) pkg. yellow cake mix
    1/4 c powdered sugar
    Thawed, frozen whipped topping (optional)
    Lemon and orange wedges (optional)

    1. Brush Stoneware Fluted pan with vegetable oil using Pastry Brush.
    2. Using Lemon Zester/Scorer, zest lemon and orange using short strokes. Juice lemon and orange with Juicer to measure 1/4 c total juice; set aside. Grate carrot using Deluxe Cheese Grater.
    3. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine eggs, sour cream, carrot, lemon zest and orange zest. Whisk until well blended using Stainless Steel Whisk. Add cake mix. Mix until well blended, about 1 minute, using Mix 'N Scrpaer. Pour batter into pan, spreading evenly.
    4. Microwave on HIGH 11-14 min or until Cake Tester inserted in near center comes out clean. Let stand in microwave 10 minutes. Loosen cake from sides of pan; invert onto serving plate.
    5. Using clean pastry brush, brush reserved citrus juices over top and sides of warm cake. Sprinkle powdered sugar over cake using Flour/Sugar Shaker. Cut into slices using Serrated Bread Knife. Garnish with whipped topping and lemon and orange wedges, if desired.

    Garden Vegetable Omelet in All the Best?

    You could do this one and just add ham. I made it this weekend - took out the asparagus and dill mix, and added bacon. My family LOVED it! It's on pg. 83 of All the Best.

    Garden Vegetable Omelet
    2 pkg crescent rolls
    4 oz cream cheese, softened
    1/4 c milk
    1 T flour
    8 eggs, divded
    1 t Pantry All-Purpose Dill Mix
    1/4 t salt
    1/4 lb fresh asparagus spears, cut into 1" pices
    1/2 c diced red bell pepper
    1/3 c chopped onion
    1 T butter or margarine
    1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese

    1. Preheat oven to 375. In Classic Batter Bowl, whisk cream cheese and milk; add flour and whisk until smooth. Separate 1 egg; reserve egg white. Add the yolk, remaining 7 eggs, dill mix, salt and black pepper to cream cheese mixture; whisk until smooth. Add asparagus, bell pepper and onion to batter bowl; mix well.

    2. Melt butter in Family (12-in) Skillet over med heat. Add egg mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, 4-6 min until eggs are set but still moist. Remove pan from heat.

    Here you go! It was in the More Stoneware Sensations Cookbook

    Ham 'N Eggs Brunch Braid
    (More Stoneware Sensations Cookbook...pg 28)

    Dash ground black pepper
    1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
    2 Tbls sliced green onions with tops
    1 tsp butter or margarine
    2 (8 oz) pkg refrigerated crescent rolls
    1/4 lb thinly sliced deli ham
    2 oz cheddar cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)

    Preheat oven to 375°F. Place cream cheese and milk in Classic Batter Bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute. Whisk until smooth using Stainless Steel Whisk.

Shred cheddar cheese over eggs using Deluxe Cheese Grater. To braid, lift strips of dough across filling to meet in center, twisting each strip one turn. Continue alternating strips to form a braid.

    Braid question

    Is there any reason why you couldn't use, say, the pizza or french bread dough for the braids? It is already in a large rectangle shape and can fit very well on the rectangular baking stone.

    I have never made a braid, so I don't know if it would work to use the bread dough instead.
