9 Breakfast Sweets To Celebrate Autumn
All summer long we've feasted on the season's bounty of peaches, plums, melons, and berries of every hue. We've baked up cobblers, clafoutis, slumps and buckles. Now, though, fall is moving in, and it's time to say goodbye to our favorite warm-weather fruits. But with what autumn's bringing, who could be sad? Apple cider is coming our way (along with apple cider doughnuts); it's time, too, for pear, pumpkin, and cinnamon everything.
There's something about these fall flavors that lend themselves especially well to cool-weather breakfasts. Autumn mornings can be gray and a bit nippy: naturally, with weather like that, we crave the warming, comforting flavors of sweet, soft fruit and the delicate spicing of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. So in the name of the coming season, we gathered together 9 of our most dependable, easy to whip up fall breakfast sweets. Click through the slideshow above to take a look!
