Pain Perdu

Pain Perdu

Pain perdu is a great dish to make on a lazy weekend morning when you have a loaf of slightly stale, rustic bread leftover from the night before.

I will sometimes squeeze a batch into a weekday morning, but I usually reserve them for the weekends when I have time to sit around and savor my pancakes.

Sticky Buns with Golden Raisins

Sticky Buns with Golden Raisins, whole tray

The difference between sticky buns and cinnamon buns is that sticky buns have a sticky caramel topping that is baked onto the buns and cinnamon buns don’t, and are typically finished off with a drizzle of icing. The caramel for sticky buns is made at the bottom of the baking pan with butter and sugar and the unbaked buns are placed on top of that ... Read More »

Mini Lemon Donut Muffins with Lemon Curd

Mini Lemon Donut Muffins

My Sugar Donut Muffins are always a favorite when I bake a batch. They’re tasty plain, but they’re also a good base for donut-like variations. For instance, you could fill them with preserves to make jelly donut muffins or with lemon curd to make these Mini Lemon Donut Muffins with Lemon Curd. These mini muffins have a buttermilk and lemon cake base and are baked ... Read More »
