Sweet Bread

Pumpkin Ale Cream Cheese Swirl Bread

Pumpkin Ale Cream Cheese Swirl Bread

Seriously, where has time gone? We are already well into November, and I’ve yet to start baking with pumpkin! I’m so far behind on all of my baking todo lists. Similar to the pumpkin cider bread I made a few years back, this is a sweet, slightly yeasty pumpkin bread with a delicious cream cheese…

Lime Poppyseed Bread

Lime Poppyseed Bread

The recipe for this bread might seem really similar. Recently I made a version with oranges rather than limes, and it was a big hit. Sometimes quick breads don’t cook super evenly or rise nicely, but the orange poppyseed bread came out so perfectly I tweaked it by switching out the orange juice and zest…

Orange Poppyseed Bread

Orange Poppyseed Bread

This has to be one of my favorite quick bread recipes that I’ve made in a long time. Take lemon poppyseed bread and replace the lemony goodness with orange and you have this perfect breakfast treat. After eating if for breakfast three mornings in a row, it reminds me of something you’d get from Starbucks,…

Cranberry Orange Bread

Cranberry Orange Bread

Christmas may be over, but it’s still the holiday season, so I think this cranberry orange bread is still seasonally appropriate. We ate it several mornings before Christmas and definitely reminds me of some breakfast treat you might buy at Starbucks. By the way, it tastes better on day 2 after the flavors can meld.…

Blueberry Bread

Blueberry Bread

Banana bread is the most common quick bread around, but you very rarely see other bread recipes made with mashed fruit. Instead, you usually find chunks of fruit. But that’s not what I envisioned when I set out to make this bread. I basically wanted to make banana bread, but instead of using mashed bananas,…

Chocolate Chai Bread

Chocolate Chai Bread

This chocolate cinnamon bread reminds me of the new chocolate chai tea lattes at Starbucks this year. The combination of spice and chocolate pairs well together, and surprisingly enough I adapted this recipe from some chocolate cinnamon bread Starbucks sometimes sells in their shops and added some extra spices to boost the fall flavor. I halved…

Roasted Banana Bread

Roasted Banana Bread

I’ve become slightly obsessed with roasting fruits and vegetables even though it’s super hot here. Roasting just enhances the flavor and makes your kitchen smell so good. Worth having to deal with a hot oven. I kept the flavors of this banana bread super simple (usually I like to add cinnamon and all kinds of…

Chocolate Turtle Bread

Chocolate Turtle Bread

When I got back from my travels earlier this year, Dustin made me a sweet breakfast. I wanted to return the favor when he got back from his mini trip to San Antonio, so I made him this chocolate turtle bread. Dustin and I are both crazy about turtles the animals and turtles the treats. Chocolate, caramel,…

Pineapple Coconut Banana Bread

Pineapple Coconut Banana Bread

A year ago we were anxiously awaiting our wedding and possibly even more excitedly the warm, tropical climate and beaches of Jamaica. I suppose now we are anxiously awaiting the beaches of Los Angeles in a few months. Until then we will savor the flavors of warm beaches in our food— like this coconut and pineapple…

Cookie Butter Banana Bread

Cookie Butter Banana Bread

Banana bread is so simple, yet one of my most favorite things to make (and add twists to). I love experimenting with different banana bread recipes to find the perfect, moist yet not soggy bread. I waited and waited for the bananas on my counter to ripen to the point that it was time to…
