These easy whole wheat rolls are soft on the inside with a lightly crisp crust. Pair them with honey butter and sprinkling of fleur de sel for a real breakfast treat.
Having a brunch for four? Try this already scaled recipe for mini blueberry buttermilk loaves.
Filled with lemon juice and tangy raspberries, these mini muffins are sweet-tart. They look pretty cute, too.
Just the other day I thought, man, I wish that I could roll into my local coffee shop and get a piece of really excellent strudel. Since I can't, I had to make it myself.
In this free-form open faced tart, pasta frolla is layered with apricot preserves and fresh peaches.
I'll admit I've been a bit narrow minded when it comes to upside-down cake. I assumed it was owned by pineapple, like in Mean Girls when Regina tells Gretchen Wieners that she's not allowed to wear hoop earrings because they're her thing. Side note: let's make another version of that movie in which every character is a food. Lindsey Lohan (circa 2004) would definitely be a cronut.
This buttery, fruit-filled cake is like a buckle without the streusel topping.
In this breakfast spin on strawberry shortcakes, easy buttermilk biscuits are served open face with freshly sliced strawberries and a cloud of milky whipped cream.
This recipe is both easy, as in a baking novice could put it together, and easy, meaning it's a shortcut way of making a traditional danish. And lastly, it's easy meaning you can put an iced strawberry cream cheese danish on the table in less than an hour.
Apricots are halved and topped with a brown sugar, oat, and almond streusel then baked in the oven until juicy. Serve them warm alongside yogurt for an easy breakfast.

Imagine if a scone and a rye bread had a baby. (You there?) Yup, that's what this bread is like.
Whole sweet corn kernels and licorice-y dill add natural sweetness to these otherwise savory mini muffins.
A chunky compote of rhubarb and blackberries makes a great sweet-tart topping for buttery crepes. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an easy dessert.
These sweet coils are inspired by the traditional Moroccan pastry M'hanncha, or snake cake, in which phyllo pastry is stuffed with a spiced nut mixture. Here, almonds take center stage.
This is a simple granola, the kind you could actually sprinkle over your yogurt without feeling like you just pulled all 16 handles at the frozen yogurt shop. It's the kind you eat with milk, in a bowl, not carry around as trail mix. And I like it that way.
I'm not Miss Manners but there are some social graces that I hate to see fall out of fashion. Door holding is one, RSVPing another. (I can see when you've open my Paperless Post invitation—why not just respond?) I was brought up with the notion that you arrive on time, you dress for the occasion, and you always, always serve dessert to dinner guests.
If we all know that the best part of coffee cake is the crumb, why not just make a coffee cake with a ton of streusel topping? That's what I finally said to myself, and that's why I made this cake.
There are days when I make myself tropical sweets and pretend I'm somewhere warm. And there are days when I give in and say, hey, it's still comfort food season, pass the pancakes. This was one of those days.
