Buttermilk Cornmeal Biscuits

Biscuits with Cornmeal

As much as I love homemade bread, I have a very strong affinity for biscuits because they allow me to get that homemade bread feeling and flavor in just a few minutes without waiting around for yeast dough to rise and proof. Yes, biscuits are a type of bread, but they are a quick type of bread and I can always appreciate that on a ... Read More »

Baked Mini Donuts

Frosted Mini Donuts

I bought a mini donut pan many, many months ago and it has been sitting in my pantry ever since. I wanted the pan because it was so cute, but when it comes down to the time to make a donut – which isn’t all that often in the first place – I usually opt to go for fried donuts and take a few extra ...

Raspberry Almond Swirl Bread

Raspberry Almond Swirl Bread

I love adding fresh berries to breads, muffins and other desserts, but you don’t always need fresh berries to give something a great berry flavor.

I know that they’re my default choices, although I’ve been known to branch out into other add-ins from time to time, opting for peanut butter swirls and coconut instead of crunchy nuts and rich chocolate chips. This time around, I opted to add in some fresh blueberries to create ... Read More »

Moist Apple Spice Bread

Moist Apple Spice Bread

Some quickbreads are very moist and dense, while others are a little bit dry and very bread-like. This moist Apple Spice Bread falls into the former category. The bread is ultra-moist and is packed with two cups of shredded apple, from two whole apples! All that fruit makes it a little bit dense, but the bread is tender and flavorful, so that is not a ...

Oats and Honey Irish Soda Bread with Raisins

Oats and Honey Irish Soda Bread with Raisins

Irish soda bread is one of my favorite things to make when I want a quick loaf of bread fresh from the oven. Soda bread gets its name from the fact that it is leavened with baking soda, rather than with yeast. This means that very little time passes between starting to mix up bread dough and eating the finished loaf. Irish soda breads are ... Read More »

Cherry Lime Bread

Cherry Lime Bread

If you’ve ever had a glass of cherry limemade, you know what a good combination cherry and lime can be. I used that combination as inspiration for this Cherry Lime Bread. This quickbread is sweet, and zesty, with flavors that you don’t see too often together. It is moist and tender, with a texture that hints at that of a pound cake. There are two ... Read More »
