Recipe: Honey and Apple Challah

A twist on classic challah for Rosh Hashanah or if you just want to impress your friends with what amounts to a very fluffy apple cake, this honey and apple challah is really good with a big cup of hot tea or coffee on a cold day. The honey gives it a nice sweetness without…

Recipe: Chocolate Babka

In case you’re unfamiliar babka is a sweet, yeasted cake that looks quite like a bread. It’s rolled and twisted so you might get a cinnamon roll vibe from it but it’s also a delicious food with a look that is pretty much guaranteed to impress with very little effort. This one is chocolate and…

Recipe: Strawberry Rolls with Lime Glaze

Despite it being January if you still have some strawberries frozen from the summer this is a beautiful and deliciously tempting dish. I used frozen strawberries to make the filling but I didn’t thicken it up enough and when I went to roll I lost some of it out the side so make sure that…

Recipe: Sufganiyot

Sufganiyot are basically the Jewish equivalent of doughnuts usually made during Hanukkah (to celebrate the use of oil for the holiday). This recipe makes a plentiful amount of tasty ones which I think filled with jam and put powdered sugar on top. It’s a recipe too good to be saved for just one time of…

Recipe: Blueberry Scones

Recipe: Mini Chocolate Chip Cookie Muffin

These are the perfect sweet treat and the mini muffin size means they take a pleasing 2-3 bites to finish off. These are perfect just the way they are or with a dollop of whipped cream, cream cheese frosting, or buttercream frosting on top. They combine the delicious taste of a chocolate chip cookie with…

Recipe: Cream Puffs

Cream Puffs are one of the best desserts on this planet. A feather-light cake is filled with simple vanilla cream for a wonderful treat that I doubt anyone would be able to resist. These puffs are strange because the dough is made in a saucepan on the stove and then finished in the oven. They…

Recipe: Strawberry Yogurt Loaf

This is sort of a strange cake in that it’s very sweet and light and fluffy even though the ingredients that you put in seem pretty dense. I liked the texture of the cake and I love the extra sweetness that the icing provides as well. It’s a pretty good grab and go slice for…

Recipe: Basic Cinnamon Rolls

I love cinnamon rolls plain but you can frost these babies too. I used a basic butter butter cream but you can frost with cream cheese if you’re feeling that instead. This is a great recipe which actually takes about 15 active minutes of doing anything, it’s a lot of waiting but of course when…
