Coffee Caramel Monkey Bread

coffee caramel monkey bread

 I have no recollection of the first time I tried monkey bread, but somewhere in my youth, or childhood, I must have done something good because it was included in my growing-up experience. Whenever my mom made it she used store-bought bread dough, which made assembling much easier (I never once saw a jar or packet of yeast in her kitchen). She’d roll small pieces of dough into…

Apple Cider Cinnamon Rolls

Apple Cider Cinnamon Rolls

I decided to see what would happen if I played around with my Sweet dough recipe – adding apple cider instead of milk, for an Autumn-ish type of breakfast bun. The rolls came out beautifully, with the faintest apple flavor. I’m not one for apple chunks in my buns and rolls (I find them distracting), so instead, to draw out the apple flavor, I opted for an apple…

Strawberry Poppyseed Swirl Buns

I’m back with more swirl buns! When I stumbled upon the recipe for Strawberry Poppy Seed Buns from the new Bake From Scratch cookbook, I decided to drop everything (which was really just taking a break from recipe testing for my next book) and make them. The dough came together beautifully and was a dream to work with, and my family and neighbors devoured them immediately then raved…

Raised 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…

Cinnamon Rolls

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,…

caramel rolls

It is rainy and chilly here in Minneapolis, and although we just had a weekend of 90 degree weather, I’m slightly excited about the possibility of autumn approaching. Caramel Rolls seem like the right way to celebrate. Made with my favorite sweet dough, these rolls are swirled up in cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, then smothered in warm caramel and toasted pecans. I made these rolls in the Mauviel…

strawberries and cream brioche buns

I’m back with another bun recipe! This will be my last for awhile, although I do love making them. I used the soufflé molds I keep going on about (I’m crazy about them), but these can easily be made the ‘regular’ way – on a good old-fashioned baking sheet or in a 9 x 13 pan. Also, don’t forget to enter my **GIVEAWAY** I’m giving away some more Mauviel copper! Contest…

morning buns

I promised another bun recipe for you, and here it is: Morning Buns. Unlike the Cinnamon Bun recipe I just posted, this one uses a quick Danish dough, which gives each roll buttery, flaky layers. I based the filling off the famous Tartine morning bun filling – I recently went to San Fransisco for the first time ever, and got to visit Tartine and try their famous morning…
