Whole Grain Apple Crisp

Whole Grain Apple Crisp

Apple pie is one of my favorite desserts no matter what time of the year it is, but when fall rolls around I start to move it up in the rotation. But, even though I can be quick with a crust, apple pies do take a little bit of time to put together when you start to compare them to other apple desserts, including apple ... Read More »

White Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

White Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls aren’t the healthiest breakfast treat – but that’s probably why they’re considered to be a breakfast treat in the first place and not a breakfast staple. But homemade cinnamon rolls give you a little more control over what goes into your treats and you can do things like make them with a little bit less butter or, like these rolls, with some whole ...

Whole Grain Banana Cake

Whole Grain Banana Cake

What is the difference between banana bread and banana cake? The most obvious answer is frosting, but I would have to give a little nudge to shape, as well. A good banana bread should have a big banana flavor and should be moist, dense without being too heavy, and tender. A good banana cake should be the same way because those are all features that ...

White Whole Wheat Biscuits

White Whole Wheat Biscuits

A simple biscuit is such a great addition to any breakfast or dinner. Most biscuits I come across are made with white flour, either an all purpose flour or a cake flour (or other low-protein flour) in the hopes of producing the most tender biscuit. While I would never turn down a perfectly made biscuit, it is nice to know that you can still make ... Read More »

Whole Wheat Popovers

You don’t need a popover pan to make popovers. A muffin tin will work perfectly well, even though you will only need to use 6 of the muffin. The only real reason to have a popover pan is that it gives you a good incentive to make popovers more often. I know this to be true because I got one not too long ago and ... Read More »

Cherry Cornmeal Cobbler

Cherry Cornmeal Cobbler

You can’t beat a cobbler for delivering a lot of fruity flavor with minimal effort. It takes less work than pie and less time to bake than a cake – especially because it is best when eaten still warm from the oven. Berries are a great choice for a cobbler base. They release a lot of naturally sweet juice during baking and the biscuit-like topping ... Read More »

White Whole Wheat Sour Cream Pancakes

White Whole Wheat Sour Cream Pancakes, eating in progress

When I was a kid, the reason I loved going out for pancakes on a Sunday morning was the syrup. Or rather, the syrups. Any diner or pancake house that had a variety of syrups that included a couple of fruit-flavored ones got a big thumbs up in my book. I still like the touch that fruit adds to maple syrup and, when I happen ... Read More »

Whole Grain Blueberry Buckle

Whole Grain Blueberry Buckle

Crisps and cobblers are fairly common fruit desserts and, when you hear either one mentioned you probably have a clear idea of what to expect. Buckles fall into the same general category, but get a lot more questioning looks when mentioned than some other fruity desserts. A “buckle” is a fruit-laden cake that gets its name from the fact that the added moisture from all ... Read More »
