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…

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

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…

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…
