Baked Cake Donuts

 

 Donuts have to be in the top 10 when it comes to desserts. Doesn’t matter what the flavor is, they are always delicious. I’ve had a love/hate relationship when it comes to baking donuts. For the past two years, I’ve attempted to make sufganiyot, also known as fried jelly donuts, […]

Challah

Rosh Hashanah Challah

 

  L’Shana Tova! Happy Jewish New Year! Friday night is the start of Rosh Hashanah and what better way to celebrate than with some fresh challah! Round challahs are used to celebrate the Jewish New Year. The round bread represents the cyclical nature of the calendar year. Along with round […]

Apple Cinnamon Babka

 

  Babka is always a good idea, especially when it is filled with cinnamon and apples. Whenever I make babka, I am always thinking of the different flavor combinations. S’mores, chocolate peanut butter, or even something savory. That’s when I got the idea for apple cinnamon babka. Rosh Hashanah seemed […]

Fig Cake

Cast Iron Skillet Fig Cake

 

 Let’s talk about fig season! One of the only silver linings of the weather cooling down is fig season! When I saw those fresh containers of figs lining the shelves of Whole Foods I was instantly excited. I was a little disappointed that it meant summer was winding down, but […]

SmoresBabka

S’mores Babka

 

  First things first, nothing is wrong with classic babka, especially chocolate babka. However, every time I am eating chocolate babka I am brainstorming other possible flavor combinations. Finally this summer, I went ahead with the s’mores babka that has been brewing in my mind. I normally stick to the […]

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

  Toffee chocolate chip cookies are a classic, yet underrated combination. The two ingredients are never my go-to combo, but whenever I have them together my first thought is that I should have this more often. I’ve been on a roll making some pretty giant cookies. I’ve kept it classic […]

Key Lime Pie Bars

Key Lime Pie Bars

 

 Key Lime Pie is all about the layers. A layer of crust, a layer of lime curd, and a heaping layer of whipped cream.  What more could you want? Well, all of the right ingredients first. Back in April when groceries were still sparse, I attempted to make a key […]

Mango and Raspberry Popsicles

Mango and Raspberry Swirl Popsicles

 

  It’s peak summer, which means popsicle season is in full swing. I’m not normally one to make homemade popsicles, specifically mango and raspberry swirl popsicles, but seeing them all over Instagram provided a bit of inspiration. They seemed pretty accessible and easy to make once a mold was in […]

White Chocolate and Cherry Blondie

White Chocolate and Cherry Blondies

 

  Cherries easily win the prize for being the best summer fruit. They are pretty great on their own and even better in summertime dessert. While the go-to for most stone fruit desserts is a cobbler or pie, I decided to switch it up a bit and add them into […]

Strawberry Shortcake

Classic Strawberry Shortcake

 

 It doesn’t get more classic than strawberry shortcake. Fresh strawberries, layered biscuits, and homemade whipped cream. Are you drooling yet?! Growing up strawberry shortcake was one of my brother’s favorite desserts. However, the version I remember at family celebrations or birthday parties included more of a sponge cake or angel […]
