Baking Us Crazy!
As the weather cools, ovens are just heating up! Embrace the #fallvibes in the most delicious way possible with these fun and perfect-for-fall home-baked goodies!
This oven-baked beauty is an awesome way to warm up on brisk fall mornings. Made with oats, walnuts and bananas, simply dump your ingredients in a baking dish and cover in a simple but tasty french toast-like mixture of maple syrup, salt, cinnamon, egg, milk and butter. Top with extra brown sugar and bake 30 minutes for a deliciously sweet way to start the day. We’re not gonna lie, the only thing that could make this more awesome is some whipped cream or – if you’re feeling extra indulgent – vanilla ice cream.
You might not be ready for the purity of #FallVibes in these doughnuts! As authentic as authentic gets, these goodies require a dough mixer, equipment for deep frying and almost 12 hours to rest. But when the finished product features a sweet graham cracker donut topped with brown sugar glaze and graham cracker pieces, we’re verrrrry sure its worth it.
Under sugar and salt, cinnamon has to be at the top of the list when it comes to “ingredients that make everything delicious”. If you’re not sure what a blondie is, it’s a brownie without the cocoa/chocolate, so if you like dense, moist bars of bliss, this recipe is a must-try. With a surprisingly simple ingredient list, the odds are good you can whip these up at anytime. You probably will, especially given the fact the top bakes into a crunchy cinnamon-sugary crust. 🤤
It’s inevitable to make it through this season without encountering an apple pie, apple crisp, candy apple, apple cider, etcetera, in your travels. That’s why this homemade goodie makes a brilliant dessert decision – you’re not going to find it served up anywhere else! Not only do you get to enjoy a deliciously sweet nut-maple-cinnamon-brown sugar filling, but this recipe lets our Local New York Apples shine on their own. Calling specifically for a “juicy” apple, we can suggest mcintosh or autumn crisp!
For anyone celebrating Rosh Hashanah, you already know the decadent complexities of honey cake. For anyone else, listen up – you are missing out! Contrary to the other baked goodies on this list, this honey cake is much less intense than the others. Much lighter and buttery, this cake allows its namesake to take the spotlight, requiring much less sugar and more of the ground almonds to add to the flavor. Though there is no honey in the cake, it is drizzled on top right after baking for the cake to soak up before serving. 🍯
One day, a blogger named Lauren mixed mashed sweet potato with her homemade cookie dough, and we were forever thankful. The end!
No, really, these sweet potato cookies are nothing short of a genius way to add a fun twist to regular baking. This, plus the fact that these cookies feature a homemade Streusel topping? This definitely wins “Most Creative For Fall”. 🏆
As if sweet potato cookies weren’t cool enough, in walks butternut squash bread – and we’re so happy it did! Moist and tender, sweet and satisfying, it’s no surprise to us that butternut squash would be just as excellent as pumpkin in the baking world. Don’t let the squash intimidate you, simply cut in half, remove the seeds, rub with oil and roast it until soft. From there, puree it until smooth then proceed as you would with canned pumpkin. The pièce de résistance of this recipe however has to be the unique-yet-easy orange glaze you top the bread with after baking. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for sure!
Cinnamon glaze outside.
Dense and delicious pumpkin cake throughout.
This recipe is a trifecta of all things “yum”!
As the only bundt cake on this list, it’s important to note there is no special step to placing that band of cheesecake inside. You simply pour the cheesecake batter on top of the pumpkin cake batter and it naturally sinks to the bottom!
At the mere mention of “bread pudding”, we’re excited. So when we saw “Sticky Toffee Pudding” Bread Pudding, the intrigue was immediate. To those of your not entirely sure, “Toffee” is caramelized sugar or molasses with butter and sometimes flour. I.E. caramel dream job. As a warning, this recipe is a baking-ception kind of deal. To get started with your “Sticky Toffee Pudding Bread Pudding” you will need to first prepare a loaf of “Sticky Toffee Pudding Brioche”. From there, you will arrange said torn up brioche in a baking dish, before dumping a heavenly brown sugar-custard on it and topping with date pieces – two times. And to truly take that bread pudding-goodness to the next level, you hit it with a toffee sauce right out of the oven. ZERO chill, just the way we like it. 👏 👏 👏
