Recipe: Layered Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

It’s fall y’all! And that means time for apples and pumpkin and warm spices like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. I will admit that I am a fanatic for the apple cinnamon combination. So when my coworker gave me some Braeburn apples from his tree and asked me to do something with it so he could…

Recipe: Plain Scones

Scones are one of those things where everyone has various different recipes for them and their own special way to make it. It’s like American biscuits – some people have recipes handed down for generations, or they have a certain way that they’ve been making them for as long as they can remember. A lot…

Recommended: Citrus Bundt Cake from Baking Bites

Bundt cakes are one of my favorite types of cake to bake when bringing it over to someone’s house. I like to think of it as a casual elegant dessert. It looks really fancy, but there isn’t much work involved in making it so presentable – unlike a layered cake with frosting. I had an…

Recipe: Bacon and Maple Doughnuts with Chocolate Espresso Glaze.

While I was in England visiting my best friend Kate (who has an amazing comic series called West that you can check out by clicking here), we had this amusing conversation while I was cooking dinner one night. She mentioned something along the lines about wondering how many different animals produce the foods that she…

Recipe: Peanut Butter Streusel Coffee Cake

When I was in elementary school, I remember sometimes getting breakfasts on campus instead of eating something at home. Back then, it was only $0.35 for a filling breakfast with milk. My favorite breakfast of all would be a coffee cake that they served with a peanut butter streusel topping. It was a little bit…

Recipe: Orange Cinnamon Pecan Cookies

I remember for birthdays in elementary school, parents could bring in cupcakes or treats for the class to celebrate the occasion. For the last 10 minutes before the school bell rang at the end of the day, everyone just crammed their faces with whatever it was that was brought in. My birthday always fell on spring…

Recommended: Blueberry Buckle from America’s Test Kitchen

My godmother has a ton of cookbooks since she loves to cook and bake just as much as I do. She’s been making a Blueberry Buckle from America’s Test Kitchen and has been met with rave reviews to anyone she has served it to. But, she tweaked the recipe a bit, which she conveyed to…

Recipe: Cake Mix Black Forest Cookies

Two older ladies rent a house next door and they know I love to bake. Every once in a while, they would load up on cake mix at the grocery store and bring me a few boxes. While I’m appreciative of the gift, I’m never quite sure what to do with the cake mix. The obvious…

Recipe: Honey Spiced Pear Cake.

The cake is buttery, crumbly, moist, and tender. It’s a double layer, but the recipe is easily cut in half to make a single layer. Unfortunately, there’s no pictures of every single step…I’m the cook AND photographer, so I didn’t feel like washing my hands after every single step before I man-handled my camera. The…
