Recipe: Banana Bread

Couldn’t be simpler it’s what nature intended for all those bananas you seem to end up having leftover some weeks. Perfect with butter, jam, or a smear of cream cheese or even just by itself this recipe takes about 10 minutes to come together in a single bowl and the results are great. Add in coconut flakes, nuts, or even some chocolate chips to take it to the next level.

Recipe: Blueberry Babka

I’ve become very enamored with Babka lately. There is something about the brioche-like texture and the sweet inside that really makes me happy but I actually do not like to stuff bread with chocolate and the cinnamon version always feels a little too dry so I decided to try a jam version and that is amazing. I can’t seem to make this without also getting jam all over the place but I’m sure that’s just a me-problem.

Recipe: Cinnamon Raisin Bread

This is a surprisingly easy recipe with perfect results. I’ve actually made this recipe a few times and incorrectly (!) once and it still came out just right. This bread is great on its own and not too sweet but it’s even better with some jam, butter, or even just a little cream cheese to really bring out the savory flavor of raisin.

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 being overwhelming. I only used a single apple but I kind of wanted more apples in it, I might try using apple butter instead of regular butter for extra apple goodness next time.

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 your filling is very very firm and cool before you go to roll.

Recipe: Blueberry Scones

Despite the picture I actually could have cooked these for another 10 minutes to get a better texture (they were more cake than scone) but they were so delicious that I didn’t mind at all. Next time I will use the suggested topping with the cream and sugar but I left it off originally because it seemed like it would be too sweet. These are perfect for a quick morning breakfast.

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 you come out with soft, gooey cinnamon rolls it’s worth the wait!
