- It’s hard not to love a dessert with a surprise inside, like cream filling inside of a cupcake. But dessert isn’t the only meal that can come with a surprise inside. Start your breakfast off with a batch of Baking Sense‘s Bacon & Egg Corn Muffins, which have a soft boiled egg inside that spills out a slightly runny yolk when you take a bite! The savory buttermilk and corn muffins are studded with bits of bacon, so while you can pair these with a full breakfast, you’re getting all your breakfast goodies in one single package.
- The Gin And Bitter Lemon Sorbet cooked up by Domestic Gothess sounds like a cocktail in dessert form. The sorbet contains fresh lemon juice, sugar, bitter lemon soda and a generous splash of gin. Bitter lemon soda is a lemon soda that contains quinine, an ingredient that is used in tonic water to give it its distinctive bitter flavor. Since tonic goes so well with gin, it’s no surprise that bitter lemon soda does, as well. An egg white is added to the mixture to give the sorbet a creamy feel, but the bold citrus flavors would stand out in any form.
- My Blackberry Scones are always a hit at spring brunches, but The Merchant Baker‘s Blackberry Fontina Basil Scones offer an intriguing change of pace. The scones are not only packed with fresh berries, but with cubes of fontina cheese and some finely chopped basil. The cheese and herbs give the scone a savory element that contrasts well with the sweet berries and makes the buttery scones even more addictive.
- Baking Mischief‘s adorable Kahlua Cream Cheese Pie Cups are a treat that is sure to appeal to anyone with a taste for mocha, since the mini chocolate cheesecakes are laced with Kahlua. The cheesecakes are built on an Oreo cookie crust, which matches the flavor of the chocolate cheesecake nicely. The treats are baked in a muffin pan, so each finished cheesecake will serve one person. These are great for a party or other event when you want desserts for a crowd, as there will be plenty for sharing.
Recipe Throwback: The next time you’re in the mood for an easy bar cookie, look no further than these Butterscotch Bars with Pecans. The thin, chewy bars are rich with brown sugar flavor and loaded with crispy pecans. They’re almost candy-like, but in a very delicious and very addictive way. I highly recommend using salted pecans for the best contrast in the finished bars.
