Jelly Doughnuts

These yeast-raised doughnuts filled with jelly or jam are a classic, and I offer you some options about how to fill them—either before or after frying. The reason I offer a choice is because I really like a chunky jam filling and that can only be accomplished pre-frying. If you like a smooth jelly, then […]

Buttercream Filled Doughnut

Apple Fritters

These apple fritters are very rustic-looking, made with whole milk, tart and sweet apples, a bit of cinnamon, and lemon zest. We recommend using one tart apple, such as a Granny Smith and one sweet apple, such as Cortland, McIntosh, Empire, Ida Red, or even Golden Delicious. The fritters must be somewhat flat when they […]

Baked Apples Stuffed with Fruit and Nuts

Baked apples are a comfort food dessert and best served warm, which you can do in the microwave if you have made them ahead. We like them for breakfast, too, with a scoop of Greek yogurt and a sprinkling of granola. Kids can help stuff the centers of the apples with the spiced dried fruit […]

Currant Cream Scones

Scones are not a one-size-fits-all type of dessert. Some are on the drier side and stand up to dunking. Some are soft and tender, and these cream scones fall into that category. Note that there is no egg, as there is in some scone recipes. There is also a combination of all-purpose and cake flour, […]

Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins rate #1 in muffin flavor polls; who conducts these things, anyway? Not that we disagree. A tender, cakey interior bursting with blueberries and a crunchy sprinkling of sugar on top is what we were aiming for. In terms of flavor, while there are many muffin recipes that use buttermilk, sour cream or yogurt […]

Blueberry Brown Sugar Almond Crumb Cake

These blueberry brown sugar almond crumb cakes are like a very elegant muffin and they deserve an elegant wrapper. We like using either the tulip papers you see in the photo from King Arthur Flour for these individual breakfast cakes. The crumb cake is a very rich sour cream-cardamom batter with pockets of fresh, juicy blueberries, […]

Double Chocolate Scones with Cinnamon Butter

Chocolate for breakfast? Why, of course! These are rich and very chocolatey, with both cocoa as well as semisweet chocolate chunks. Because these are all about the chocolate flavor, use high-quality cocoa and chocolate. Our favorites for this chocolate scones recipe are Scharffen Berger cocoa and Valrhona Equitoriale chocolate. Our one concession, to make them […]
