|Brown Sugar-Cranberry Oat Muffins
Studded with tart cranberries and packed with wholesome oats, these delicious muffins bake up moist, with nicely rounded, golden-brown tops.

This bread is a hazelnut lover’s dream: a tender, nutty texture filled with melty chocolate chips and a thick layer of crunchy hazelnut streusel on top.

This autumnal coffee cake is lighter than you’d expect, with the rich flavor of pumpkin and spices, and a thick layer of crunchy brown sugar and pecan streusel.
|White Chocolate Scones with Meyer Lemon Curd
This delicious riff on the traditional scone includes decadent chunks of white chocolate in the pastry, and a side of tart-sweet Meyer lemon curd.
|Mini Banana-Maple Pancake Muffins
These gems are like little banana pancakes baked into muffin shapes, which makes them easy to pop into your mouth. Toss mini chocolate chips into the batter to take them over the top.
|Gooey Cinnamon Rolls
There is quite possibly no better aroma than a pan of these big, puffy rolls baking in the oven, fragrant with cinnamon, brown sugar and orange zest.
|Brandied Apple Cake with Figs & Walnuts
Loaded with apple chunks, dried fruit and nuts, here is a not-overly-sweet cake that’s perfect for breakfast — or even an afternoon snack.

Zest from three types of citrus fruit—orange lemon and lime—adds a refreshing note to this quick bread, while candied ginger lends a sweet undertone.
|Buttermilk Angel Biscuits
These “angel” biscuits have a wonderfully light, airy texture. Make a big batch — the dough can be refrigerated for a couple of days, so you can bake fresh biscuits, a few at a time, whenever you want them.
|Figgy Cardamom Bread
This braided loaf makes a stunning presentation and is easier to make than you might think. It’s based on traditional cardamom-spiked breads, with luscious dried figs added for some sparkle.
