Lately, I’ve been trying to come up with to-go breakfast ideas that I can easily eat at work. The other day, I remembered we had English muffins in the freezer and thought they would be perfect!
But when I took them out, I could tell right away that they were freezer burned (honestly not sure how long they had been there…) so I decided I would make some English muffins myself the following weekend. Homemade is better anyway, right?
These whole wheat muffins are amazing! They rise tall, have a perfect crumble, and have a nice, hearty touch due to the whole wheat. My ideal English muffin is toasted with some salted butter, topped with some raspberry jam! (more…)
Bananas are definitely a staple fruit in my house, but they are also the only fruit that seems to always be going bad. Maybe “going bad” is the wrong expression, but none of us like to eat them once they turn too soft and brown.
Of course, brown bananas are amazing for many reason. Reason number being this pancake recipe. These pancakes are light and fluffy but also have the full flavor of the aromatic banana bread that we all know and love.
In a lot of ways, these pancakes are even better than the classic bread. First of all, there’s the instant gratification: no need to wait an hour for this to bake and no need at all to wait for it to cool (because pancakes are also hotcakes). (more…)
During the year, breakfasts at my house are normally pretty rushed with everyone either heading off to work or school, but during the summer we have much more time to relax and the result is some pretty good food.
This Mango Raspberry Cobbler is one such example. It’s not hard at all to make, but it does require 30 minutes in the oven and it needs to cool down a bit afterwards, so it’s not something that can be made in a hurry.
But the mango and raspberries just complement each other perfectly, both tangy and sweet. And the crumble topping is light and almost granola-like, adding a wonderful crunch into the mix. (more…)
If you like having lazy weekend mornings but still want a delicious, warm breakfast, then you should definitely try out these yeasted overnight pancakes.
This recipe is from one of the latest books I’m reviewing: Homemade Decadence. Book review and recipe below!
As a kid, I always loved those rare mornings when my parents would bring home a box of Dunkin’ Donuts. My younger siblings loved any donut with sprinkles, but my favorite was always the chocolate glazed with chocolate icing on top.
Donuts are really quite a hassle to make at home since you have to fry them. Now donut baking pans are becoming more and more popular, but to me there’s no point in buying pans like that as you can place any “donut” recipe in regular muffin tins. That’s what this recipe is: a cakey, donut-like muffin with a chocolate cinnamon glaze. These don’t take long to make and are amazing freshly glazed, while they’re still warm. (more…)
Yes, you read that post title correctly: these are the perfect chocolate chip pancakes. Why? Because they’re fat and fluffy, made with whole wheat flour, and you can whip them up in minutes.
But, before I give you the recipe, I’d like to announce the opening of my new Etsy shop! Last week I worked on setting up my site (etsy.com/shop/jackiesdelights) where I’ll be selling handmade accessories, purses, pouches, and hopefully some laptop sleeves too.
Currently, there are scarves, headbands, and zipper pouches and I hope to be adding more summery items. I also enjoy knitting and crocheting but will probably wait until fall to post the bulk of those items. (more…)
Muffins are a popular item in my house: they’re simple for me to make, and they’re quick and easy to eat; no plate, forks, or even napkins are required.
Therefore, these muffins were quite a hit. They’re very simple muffins with a pinch of zest and a bit of juice. And, of course, you have the option to spice this recipe up a bit: use blood oranges instead of regular, and add 2 tablespoons of poppy seeds.
Either way, everyone will love these light and fluffy orange muffins! (more…)
Snickerdoodle cookies are one of my favorites: soft and crisp, sweet and cinnamoney. My snickerdoodle cookie recipe was among the first couple of recipes ever posted on this blog and they have continued as a favorite in my house. And after I made snickerdoodle cupcakes, it seemed obvious that snickerdoodle muffins would be an amazing recipe as well.
When I made this recipe, I realized that it was no mistake. Just like the cookie, these are soft and buttery on the inside, slightly crisp on the outside. They have that perfect blend of cinnamon and sugar.
And, baked in the oven, the sugar-cinnamon mixture caramelizes on top of the muffin, giving it an extra little crunch. (more…)
Here’s another oatmeal recipe, only this one is a bit more decadent than the ones before it: chocolate brownie oatmeal.
Reminiscent of a brownie, this oatmeal tastes amazing with some chocolate chips on top. I added white and milk chocolate chips, as well as some slivered almonds, and it was amazing.
The best part is that this oatmeal is actually HEALTHY! This oatmeal gets its rich flavor with just a little bit of unsweetened cocoa powder. To sweeten, a single banana is added. (more…)
If you’re looking for a great twist on the classic cinnamon roll, or just another interesting pumpkin recipe, this is definitely one to try.
These are also great to simply have around the holidays, since they are pumpkin flavored. Pair it with a latte and you’re set! (more…)
