Muffins + Breads

Gingerbread Stout Loaf

Gingerbread Stout Loaf

This loaf cake was inspired by one we sampled at The Sycamore Kitchen awhile back, and I knew I’d have to recreate it come the holiday season. The stout (instead of buttermilk) really intensified the deep, dark molasses flavor. I was a little worried swapping out the buttermilk in favor of stout that the texture…

Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

In part of an attempt to clean out half used things from my pantry, I decided to make some cookie butter muffins with chocolate chips. As much as I enjoyed the cookie butter banana bread I made awhile back, these muffins were amazing. I made them to be large bakery-style muffins, and they ended up…

Ultimate Strawberry Muffins

Ultimate Strawberry Muffins

I can’t believe it’s been more than a year and a half since I made these absolutely delicious blueberry muffins. Time flies! I used the same basic recipe  (with a few tweaks) to turn these into perfect strawberry muffins, since nice, pretty strawberries are in peak season. For a fun twist, I topped the muffins…

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,…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Muffins

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Muffins

I’m most definitely not a morning person. Fortunately my schedule as a grad student changes and I only have a couple of what I consider to be early mornings. When you do have to leave the house pre 8 AM, these muffins are the best way to convince yourself to get out of bed. Peanut…

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.…

Sweet Potato Biscuits

Sweet Potato Biscuits

I’ve probably talked this point to death, but Dustin and I have very different ideas on sweet potatoes. Most burger places out here serve massive portions of fries meant to serve two people, which means I very rarely get to order sweet potato fries because Dustin is typically not having any of that. When I…

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,…

Pumpkin Pie Bagels with Maple Cinnamon Cream Cheese

Pumpkin Pie Bagels with Maple Cinnamon Cream Cheese

I can’t believe there was a time I was scared to make bagels. Now they are a semi-regular occurrence around here, and I figured it was about time to make one of my favorite flavors…pumpkin pie bagels! Full on pumpkin obsession has commenced! I still haven’t quite mastered making bagels look as pretty as the…
