Raised Mini Donuts

Tuesday, February 12, 2019
mini donuts

Mini Donuts! With all the options for fancy, over-the-top donuts, I often forget the simple pleasure of a tiny donut coated in sugar. In the past these small circles were enjoyed at some kind of amusement park or fair; a bag purchased on the way out after a long day of walking for miles and spending way too much money on food already. Now I can make them…

Yossy Arefi’s (from Apt 2B Baking Co.) new cookbook is out today, and I’d just like to begin by saying it’s so gorgeous. I’ve been a fan of Yossy’s work for quite some time and have been eagerly awaiting this release. The book focuses on all things fruit, and is filled with stunning photographs, unique flavor combinations, and recipes that work.  ‘The recipes in this book range from…

cinnamon rolls

I’m posting the cinnamon roll recipe from my book here today, as many of you have been looking for it after the Pancake Princess declared it winner of her Cinnamon Roll Bake Off (yay!). I had the rolls in a different form here, but since the recipe was on several other sites and I had so many questions about where to find it and how to make them,…

Cranberries and Cream Danish Braid

Christmas is just around the corner. I’ve been baking for weeks (mostly recipe testing for my next book, but also holiday baking!), and must say this Danish braid is one of my favorite things I’ve made this December. The tart cranberries paired with cream cheese, sweet icing, and flaky Danish dough is just about perfection. If cranberries aren’t your thing, you could fill the braid with your favorite…

St. Lucia Buns

This recipe for St. Lucia Buns was posted a few years ago originally, but it got buried in the archives and I thought I’d bring it up again for the Holidays. ****************************************** Each December, I find myself searching for the perfect holiday traditions. Not that there are any perfect ones, of course, but with two little ones in our family, I crave some routine and consistency each year.…

Walnut Cake with Chocolate Buttercream and Candied Walnuts

Walnut Cake with Chocolate Buttercream and Candied Walnuts

This post is sponsored by California Walnuts. As always, all opinions are my own.  I’m excited to share this cake with you, for two reasons. First, it has been a whole month since I made a layer cake, so I was due for another one. Second, this cake involves candied walnuts, and I didn’t realize until I made them how incredibly delicious they are. (My family agreed, and…

pumpkin and cream cheese muffins with struesel

I’m posting again (two days in a row!) because I received a lovely new cookbook from Fanny Lam of Oh Sweet Day, and these pumpkin and cream cheese muffins spoke to me immediately from amongst the pages. Then after making them and inhaling most of them (and sharing with my neighbors who also devoured them) I decided you might just want this recipe as well for your upcoming…

pumpkin pie

Several people asked for this recipe after I posted a photo of the pie on Instagram, so here it is. This is the pumpkin pie I’ve made at the last couple Thanksgivings, and it’s gone over quite well my family gathering. It is dreamy-creamy, and boasting of pumpkin flavor. Other pumpkin recipes you may enjoy: Baked Pumpkin Donuts, Pumpkin Poundcake with Chocolate, Pumpkin Scones, and Ginger Cake with…
