Whip up some Baked Banana Doughnuts, glazed, then topped with chocolate and toasted nuts! Easy to make, delicious, and ready in 25 minutes!

Good morning! Today I want to share a delicious recipe for baked banana doughnuts! Our family enjoyed them at our Easter brunch this past April, and they were a wonderful addition to our “feast”. Banana baked doughnuts have wonderful flavor, and look good, too!. I “prettied them up” a bit by adding chocolate drizzle and toasted nuts to each one, which gave them even better presentation and flavor! A family member was overheard saying they look like “REAL” doughnuts… ha ha!!

These breakfast treats (or snacks) are BAKED, and not FRIED, which makes them even easier to prepare! To make them, you will need to have a doughnut pan with a six doughnut well in it. I got mine years ago online, and it was fairly inexpensive. I’ve used mine many times over the years to make doughnuts, so it was a worthwhile purchase.

Make The Batter For The Doughnuts

Before beginning, remember to preheat your oven to 325°F. It doesn’t take long at all to prepare the batter, so you will want that oven hot and ready to go, when you’re ready to bake the doughnuts. While the oven preheats, make the batter. Lightly spray or grease the doughnut pan, as well.

Whisk together all purpose flour, granulated sugar, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Once you’ve combined these ingredients, make a “well” in the center of the mix, then set the bowl aside. In a separate bowl, combine mashed banana, buttermilk, a beaten egg, melted (cooled) butter and vanilla extract.

Flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt are placed in a medium bowl and combined.Egg, banana, buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter are combined in bowl.

Pour the banana mixture into the well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and then stir until all ingredients are combined. Don’t overmix the batter… only stir until all ingredients have been incorporated into a thick batter.

Egg mixture is poured into a well in the dry ingredients, then combined.Batter for baked banana doughnuts is thoroughly combined and ready to use.

Bake The Doughnuts

Evenly divide the doughnut batter into your lightly greased doughnut pan. I spoon the batter into each doughnut well, and it is not too messy at all. You will find that the batter will fill each well almost to the top.

Bake the doughnuts on the middle rack of the oven, at 325°F. for about 10-12 minutes. They will not be overly browned once done baking, but they should be set on top and cooked through. If you gently touch the top of the doughnut, it should spring back lightly.

Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool slightly before removing the baked banana doughnuts from the pan. Once cooled slightly, place the doughnuts onto the wire rack, and put a sheet of wax paper or aluminum foil UNDER the rack. The foil or wax paper will catch any drips when you glaze the doughnuts later.

Glaze And Decorate The Doughnuts

While the baked banana doughnuts cool, make the simple glaze. Stir or whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk until the glaze is smooth (no lumps!). Once the doughnuts have cooled to room temperature, dip the top of each doughnut (one at a time) into the glaze.

Dip doughnuts enough to cover the top of the doughnut, then quickly flip it over, allowing excess glaze to drip back into the bowl. Set the glazed doughnut back (frosting side UP) onto the wire rack, and repeat this process with the remaining doughnuts. 

A glaze is made with powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to frost the baked doughnuts.Each doughnut is placed in the glaze to fully coat the top of each one.Six baked banana doughnuts on a wire rack after being glazed.

Once the glaze has been applied and has firmed up just a bit… drizzle melted chocolate over each donut, then add the toasted, chopped nuts on top of the chocolate. Lightly press the nuts into the chocolate so they will adhere to the doughnut. Let the toppings firm up before serving.

Chopped toasted nuts and melted chocolate are added to the top of each doughnut.

Serve The Baked Banana Doughnuts!

Once the glaze and chocolate toppings have firmed up, the baked banana doughnuts are ready to serve! We served them at our Easter brunch, and they were a hit! In the photo below you can see them (with the red arrow), along with our other choices.

We enjoyed them with a variety of dishes, including creamy deviled eggs, snickerdoodle bread, egg, cheese and veggie breakfast casserole, chocolate chip orange scones, and blueberry lemon muffins!

Make 2 large loaves (or 5 small) of Snickerdoodle Bread, a delicious sweet bread filled with cinnamon chips, and topped with cinnamon-sugar.

Do you enjoy snickerdoodle cookies? We sure do at our house! There’s just something about that sugar and cinnamon combo that pushes all my buttons! One of my favorite treats growing up was Cinnamon Toast… yum! Now imagine if you will, a cinnamon sugar topped bread loaf with great traditional snickerdoodle flavor, and it’s filled with cinnamon chips! Oh my goodness… it’s delicious!

I found the original recipe online about six years ago, and want to share it with you today. The recipe (as written) will make two 9×5″ loaves, but you can also use the batter to make five small loaves (5¾ x 3¼ x 2½). This bread freezes well (if wrapped airtight), so you can save several loaves for later. The small mini-loaves also make wonderful gifts for friends or family! It is really quite simple to make, and cinnamon chips can be found in many grocery stores or can easily be ordered online. Here’s how to make this delicious bread:

Make the Bread Batter

While you make the batter, remember to preheat your oven to 350°F, and spray the loaf pans with non-stick baking spray (with flour). Okay… let’s get this party started! Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a medium sized bowl. Once combined, set the bowl aside until later.

Flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon are whisked together in large bowl.

Use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Mix for about two minutes, until the batter becomes light and fluffy. Now add 4 eggs, ONE AT A TIME, beating each one into the batter before adding the next one.

Add sour cream and vanilla extract to the batter, and beat until combined. Now add the flour mixture to the batter, a little at a time, beating on low as you add it. Mix the flour in only until incorporated, being careful to not overmix the batter.

Butter, sugar and eggs are beaten until very smooth with an electric mixer.Sour cream and vanilla extract are added to the snickerdoodle bread batter.Flour and other dry ingredients are added to the batter for the snickerdoodle bread and combined.

Time To Add The Cinnamon Chips!

Now it’s time to add the cinnamon chips to the batter. Before adding them, place the chips in a small bowl with 2 Tablespoons flour and gently stir until lightly covered. This will help the cinnamon chips to be distributed evenly through the bread and not drop to the bottom of the loaf while baking.

STIR the flour-coated cinnamon chip mixture into the snickerdoodle bread batter until fully incorporated. At this point it will be a fairly thick dough.

Cinnamon chips are tossed in flour before adding them to the bread batter.After adding the cinnamon chips, the batter is stirred until fully combined.

Prepare The Bread For Baking

Divide the dough evenly between the bread pans. In large (9″ x 5″) pans, the pans will be a little less than halfway full. If you’re using mini loaf pans (5¾” x 3¼”), they shouldn’t be more than 2/3 full.

Now it’s time to make the cinnamon sugar topping! Mix 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a small bowl until combined. Sprinkle this mixture lightly over the top of the loaves to cover.

Batter for the snickerdoodle bread is divided into loaf pans.Each of the loaves is topped with cinnamon sugar mixture before baking.

Bake The Snickerdoodle Bread

Place the loaves on the middle rack of a preheated oven. Bake large loaves at 350°F for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the top/center comes out clean. If you’re making small mini-loaves, bake for 35-40 minutes, then test for doneness.

Transfer the pans to a wire rack, and let the loaves cool at least 10-15 minutes BEFORE attempting to remove the bread. Run a butter knife around the edges of the pans, then invert the pan to remove the bread. Place the loaves on a wire rack, and let them cool completely before slicing and serving.

When ready to serve, cut the snickerdoodle bread into beautiful slices, serve and enjoy! It is delicious bread, and the cinnamon flavor is wonderful, especially with all those yummy cinnamon chips!

Blueberry Oat Muffins

Glazed Blueberry Oat Muffins, with blueberries, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon are yummy for breakfast or a snack! This recipe makes 12 muffins.
Glazed Blueberry Oat Muffins, with blueberries, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon are yummy for breakfast or a snack! Recipe makes 12 muffins.

Today I want to share this recipe for blueberry oat muffins with you. I found this recipe a while back in a cookbook I checked out from our local library. The muffins turned out really well, and have good flavor, especially from the juicy blueberries inside.

These muffins have rolled oats inside, which help to fill you up, so that’s a win-win in my book. There is a tiny bit of prep time, as the old-fashioned oats are soaked in buttermilk for one hour before whipping up the muffins. During that time the oats soak up the buttermilk, leaving them very moist and perfect for a muffin batter base!

I added a simple, thin powdered sugar glaze once the muffins were done, which leaves them pretty, shiny and lovely for serving. Honestly, the muffins come together quickly once the oats have soaked, so just plan ahead a little bit and you’ll have no problems. Here’s how to make these tasty breakfast or snack treats.

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

A Little Prep Work Ahead Of Time

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Place rolled oats (old-fashioned, not instant) and buttermilk in a large mixing bowl, then stir to combine. Set the bowl aside and let the oats “soak” in the buttermilk for one hour. The oats will absorb almost all of the buttermilk during this time.

In a SEPARATE bowl, stir together all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and brown sugar. Set the bowl aside. You will also need to spray or grease 12 standard-sized muffin cups (or line with paper liners). Silicon muffin liners can be used, as well.

Old-fashioned rolled oats are soaked for 1 hour in buttermilk.Flour and other dry ingredients are stirred together in a mixing bowl.

Make The Muffin Batter

After the oats have soaked for one hour, add an egg and melted (but cooled) shortening into the bowl of oats. Stir, but only until these ingredients are just barely combined. Don’t overmix! Add the dry ingredients (flour mixture) to the bowl, and stir again until combined into a thick batter.

Egg and melted shortening are stirred into the rolled oat mixture which has been soaking.Dry ingredients are stirred into the rolled oat mixture, forming a thick batter.

The last step is to gently fold the blueberries into the batter for the blueberry oat muffins. Once combined, divide the muffin batter evenly between 12 greased, standard-sized muffin cups. Each muffin cup will be filled over half way. 

Blueberries are gently folded into the batter for the blueberry oat muffins.Muffin tin liners are filled with the thick blueberry batter before baking.

Bake, Cool, Then Glaze The Top Of The Muffins

Bake the blueberry oat muffins at 400°F for 18-20 minutes on a middle rack in the oven. When done, the muffins will be golden brown. and a toothpick inserted into the top should come out clean (no batter). Let them rest 3-4 minutes, then transfer them from the pan to a wire rack (placed on top of paper towels or wax paper) to finish cooling.

While the muffins cool, make a thin glaze by combining powdered sugar and a few drops of water in a small bowl. When the blueberry oat muffins have completely cooled, use a pastry brush to “paint” the muffin tops with glaze. The paper towels (or wax paper) under the wire rack will catch any random drips, (which makes for easier cleanup).

After baking, the blueberry oat muffins cool on a wire rack before glazing.A thin glaze of powdered sugar and water is mixed to glaze the top of the baked muffins.Powdered sugar glaze is painted onto the blueberry oat muffins with a pastry brush.

Time To Eat The Blueberry Oat Muffins

The blueberry oat muffins are ready to serve and enjoy once the glaze has firmed up! They are delicious, especially when sliced and topped with a tiny bit of soft butter! The blueberries are wonderfully moist and juicy, and the muffins have a nice flavor and texture.

Buttermilk Cornmeal Biscuits

Make a small batch of buttermilk cornmeal biscuits to serve with a favorite soup or meat dish. Recipe makes 5 delicious, fluffy biscuits.

Today I want to share a lovely biscuit recipe I found in a mailer that was sent to our home from our grocer a few months ago. The recipe is pretty straightforward, and the result is five light and fluffy biscuits (3″ in diameter). You can also make the recipe yield eight biscuits if you cut the dough into 2″ in diameter rounds, if you need more!

We really enjoy these cornmeal-infused biscuits served with chili or soup, but they can stand on their own, as well, with butter and jam. They are not too difficult to make, and require no rising time, which makes them a great choice on a busy day. Let me show you how easy it is to make them:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Mixing The Dough For The Biscuits

Before beginning, preheat your oven to 425°F. You will also need to coat a baking sheet with non-stick baking spray OR line it with parchment paper. Okay- now it’s time to begin making the biscuit dough!

Measure flour, yellow cornmeal, baking powder, granulated sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut in very COLD chunks of butter, by using two forks OR a hand-held pastry blender. Continue to work the butter into the dry ingredients, until the butter has been reduced to roughly the size of peas.

Flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt are combined in mixing bowl.Cold chunks of butter are cut into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender, for the biscuits.

Pour in one cup of buttermilk. Stir the liquid into the flour mixture only until it is just combined. It is important that you do not overmix the dough ingredients!

Buttermilk is added to the biscuit mix and stirred until combined.

Time To Make The Sticky Dough Pliable

The dough will be VERY sticky! Place the dough mixture onto a generously floured, clean surface. Sprinkle a little flour on top and then knead the dough by hand 5-6 times until the dough becomes a “non-sticky” ball. I found that I need to lightly sprinkle with flour as I do this, because this dough is really quite sticky!

When done, the dough should be very cohesive and much “drier in texture”. Add additional flour to the work surface if necessary, then roll the dough ball out to about ¾” thickness.

 The sticky biscuit batter is placed on a floured surface for kneading.After kneading, the dough for the buttermilk cornmeal biscuits is ready for the next step.

Cut Out The Buttermilk Cornmeal Biscuits And Bake

After rolling out the dough, it’s time to cut out the buttermilk cornmeal biscuits! Here you have a choice about the size biscuits you want. You can cut out the biscuits with a biscuit cutter, a drinking glass, or you can do like I do and cut them out, using a caning jar lid!

NOTE: If you wish to have about 8 small biscuits, cut them out with a 2″ biscuit cutter. If you want 5 slightly larger biscuits, use a 3″ biscuit cutter. (I make 5 using a 3″ cutter).

Place the buttermilk cornmeal biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, being sure to keep them about 1-2 inches apart for baking. Bake the biscuits at 425°F. for 12-15 minutes. When done, the top of the biscuits should be nice and golden brown.

Time To Serve The Buttermilk Cornmeal Biscuits!

Remove the baked biscuits from the oven. We like to brush the tops with a little bit of melted butter right before serving, but that is optional. You can always slice the biscuits and spread them with softened butter and/or jam if you prefer.

We enjoy these biscuits served along with with a nice, hot bowl of soup or chili. They are light, fluffy, and taste wonderful! I think you’re gonna like them as much as we do!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will have the opportunity to make these buttermilk cornmeal biscuits, and trust you (and those you love) will enjoy them, too. Please come back again soon for more family-friendly recipes… and have a GREAT day!

Keyword: buttermilk cornmeal biscuits
Servings: 8 (2" biscuits)
Calories Per Serving: 251 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
  • cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup COLD butter (one stick)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick baking spray OR line it with parchment paper.

  2. Measure flour, cornmeal, baking powder, granulated sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Cut in COLD chunks of butter, using 2 forks OR a hand-held pastry blender. Work butter into dry ingredients, until butter has been reduced to roughly the size of peas. Pour in buttermilk; Stir into flour mixture only until just combined. Don't overmix dough!

  3. Dough will be VERY sticky! Place dough on a generously floured, clean surface. Sprinkle a little flour on top; knead dough by hand 5-6 times until it becomes a "non-sticky" ball. TIP: I found I need to lightly sprinkle dough with flour as I do this, because it's quite sticky! When done, dough should be a cohesive ball. Add additional flour to work surface if necessary; roll dough ball out to ¾" thickness.

  4. Time to cut out the buttermilk cornmeal biscuits! Here you have a choice about the size biscuits you want. You can cut out the biscuits with a biscuit cutter, a drinking glass, or you can do like I do and cut them out, using a caning jar lid! NOTE: If you want 8 small biscuits, cut them out with a 2" biscuit cutter. If you want 5 slightly larger biscuits, use a 3" biscuit cutter.

  5. Place biscuit rounds on prepared baking sheet, keeping them 1-2 inches apart. Bake at 425°F. for 12-15 minutes. When done, biscuits should be golden brown.

  6. Remove biscuits from oven. OPTIONAL: brush biscuits with melted butter right before serving. Serve, and enjoy!

Pear Pecan Bread

Make 2 loaves of absolutely delicious Pear Pecan Bread, drizzled with a sweet vanilla glaze. Make one loaf for you and another for a friend!
Make 2 loaves of absolutely delicious Pear Pecan Bread, drizzled with a sweet vanilla glaze. Make one loaf for you and another for a friend!

We were recently blessed with a grocery bag full of pears from one of our neighbors. He said they couldn’t handle any more and since it was the last of the harvest, they thought we might enjoy them! YES, PLEASE!  I let them ripen for about another week, then canned some pear butter to store in our pantry. YUM.

I’ve made pear bread before, but decided to try another recipe I found online that sounded wonderful. I doubled the original recipe, and added a vanilla glaze drizzled on top of each loaf. That way, we could eat one loaf, and give the other one to another family (or wrap it and freeze it for later. This pear pecan bread is so tasty, and it was no trouble at all for us to gobble it up within a matter of about 3 days!

The recipe makes two beautifully browned standard sized loaves of bread, using 8½” or a 9″ loaf pans. Small pieces of fresh pears and pecans dot each slice, and the bread is NOT dry (unless you over cook it… ha ha!). It is flavored with vanilla and the warm spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Here’s how easy it is to make pear pecan bread:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Mix The Wet Ingredients

Before making the batter, preheat your oven to 350°F, and lightly spray (or grease) two 8½” or 9″  loaf pans. Set aside. The batter doesn’t take too long to make, so you want your oven preheated and ready to go when you are!

To make the “wet” ingredients, place vegetable oil, granulated sugar and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Whisk (or beat) these well, until fully combined. Add the peeled and chopped pears, chopped pecans and vanilla extract to the bowl. Stir well, to fully combine these “wet” ingredients.

Oil, sugar and eggs are whisked together in mixing bowl until smooth.Chopped pears, pecans and vanilla extract are added to the batter.

Mix The Dry Ingredients And Add To the Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl, stir (or whisk) together the “dry” ingredients. The dry ingredients used are all purpose flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Once combined, slowly add these “dry” ingredients, a little at a time, to the bowl containing the “wet” ingredients.

Stir as you add, and continue stirring just until all the dry ingredients are fully incorporated into the batter. When done combining the ingredients together, you will have the batter ready to make two loaves of pear pecan bread.

The dry ingredients, including flour and spices, are combined in a bowl.Dry ingredients are stirred into the pear pecan bread batter until combined.The batter for the bread is thoroughly combined and ready to pour into loaf pans.

Ready To Bake The Pear Pecan Bread

Evenly divide the batter between the two greased loaf pans, then place on a middle rack in your preheated oven. Bake at 350°F for 55-60 minutes. Oven temps can vary quite a bit, so check for doneness at the 55 minute mark.

When done, you can insert a toothpick into the center of a loaf, and if it comes out batter-free (clean), the bread is done. The loaves should be wonderfully browned, as well. Transfer the loaf pans to a wire rack, and let the bread cool for 10-15 minutes before trying to remove it from the pan. To remove from pan, slide a butter knife around all the edges of the pan to loosen the bread. Turn loaf pan upside down to release the bread. Cool the loaves on a wire rack after removing them from the pan.

Bread batter is poured evenly into two greased loaf pans before baking.After baking, the loaves of pear pecan bread are browned and cool on a wire rack.

Make The Vanilla Glaze For Drizzling

While the pear pecan bread is cooling, you can make the simple vanilla glaze that will be drizzled on the bread once cool. In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and a few drops of water. Stir, and continue to add a few drops of water at a time until the glaze is thinned just enough to drizzle over the top of the bread.

If you get it too thin, simply add a little bit more powdered sugar. If it is still too thick to drizzle with a fork, simply add a couple more drops of water until it reaches the desired consistency. Once the pear pecan bread has completely cooled, drizzle the top of each loaf decoratively with the vanilla glaze. I usually use a fork OR a honey dipper to do this. TIP: For easy cleanup, place a sheet of wax paper, parchment paper or aluminum foil UNDER the wire rack to catch drips while drizzling the glaze.

A vanilla glaze is made by combining powdered sugar, vanilla and water.Each of the pear pecan bread loaves is drizzled with vanilla glaze.

Time For A Slice Of Pear Pecan Bread!

Once the drizzled glaze has firmed up, the bread is ready to slice and serve! You can get about 8, one-inch slices per loaf. Serve with your favorite hot beverage (or a big glass of cold milk), and enjoy! We enjoy pear pecan bread for breakfast OR a great afternoon snack. It is delicious!

If you are interested, these loaves freeze very well. I usually wrap the loaf in plastic wrap, and then in aluminum foil when freezing. All you will need to do is let the loaf thaw completely before serving!

I really hope you have the opportunity to make and enjoy this bread. We LOVE it! Thank you for taking time to visit my blog today. I hope you will come back soon for more family-friendly recipes. Take care, and have a wonderful day. God Bless You.

Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Muffins

Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Muffins are full of pumpkin spice flavor and topped with a buttery pecan streusel. You’ll love these yummy muffins!
Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Muffins are full of pumpkin spice flavor and topped with a buttery pecan streusel. You'll love these yummy muffins!

Fall is the time for all things PUMPKIN! I have been making pumpkin muffins for years, but today I want to share our absolute FAVORITE recipe (found online) for these delicious breakfast treats. Full of flavor from pumpkin pie spices and topped with a decadent streusel topping, they are a real taste treat! Here’s how to make them:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Prepare The Muffin Batter

Before mixing the batter, remember to preheat your oven to 375°F so it’s hot when the muffins are ready to bake. To make the batter, place pumpkin puree, milk, eggs, vanilla and butter (melted but cooled) in a large mixing bowl. Whisk these ingredients well, until combined and smooth. These are your “wet” ingredients.

Melted butter, pumpkin puree, eggs and vanilla extract are whisked together in large glass bowl.The wet ingredients for the muffins are whisked together until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine all purpose flour, granulated sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt, and stir to combine. These are your “dry” ingredients. Stir or whisk the dry ingredients a little at a time into the wet ingredients. Continue to stir or whisk only until the ingredients have been incorporated into the batter. Don’t overmix!.

Flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice mix, baking soda and salt make up the dry ingredients for muffins.The dry ingredients are combined with the wet ingredients for the pumpkin pecan streusel muffins.

Place 12 paper-liners into a standard sized muffin tin. I like to give each paper liner a little shot of non-stick baking spray before filling them with batter (a little trick a former professional baker told me over 25 years ago). Fill each muffin cup about halfway with batter, dividing the batter evenly. Set the pan aside and make the streusel topping.

The muffin batter is evenly divided into 12 paper-lined muffin cups.

Make The Pecan Streusel Topping

In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, chopped pecans, pumpkin pie spice, melted butter and salt. Once mixed together with a spoon or fork, it will be a crumbly streusel topping for your muffins.

If you don’t have any pumpkin pie spice mix in your pantry, you can use my simple recipe to make your own. It will make a bit more than you need for this recipe, so you can have extra for the NEXT batch of muffins! Get the pumpkin pie spice mix recipe HERE.

Time To Bake The Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Muffins!

Top each of the muffins with the pecan streusel, dividing it evenly between the 12 muffins. Now they’re ready to bake in your preheated oven. Bake the muffins for 20 minutes at 375°F.

When done, the muffins will be nicely browned, and a toothpick inserted into the top of a muffin should come out free of batter. Remove the muffins, and lightly sprinkle sifted powdered sugar over the top of each muffin. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling, and then they’re ready to serve and enjoy!

Who Wants A Yummy Muffin?

After the muffins have cooled slightly, they are ready to gobble up. We think they taste fantastic just slightly warm or at room temperature! Peel back those muffin paper-liners, and take a big bite.

These muffins are AMAZING! My husband says they are some of the best muffins he’s ever had (and he’s eaten a LOT of muffins over the years). Hope you enjoy them just as much as we do. YUM! They truly taste wonderful any time of year, but we especially love their warm pumpkin spice flavor during FALL!

    Mini-Loaf Pound Cake

    It’s easy to make a yummy, mini-loaf pound cake with simple ingredients! Enjoy this small loaf, flavored with lemon zest and lemon juice!
    It's easy to make a yummy, mini-loaf pound cake with simple ingredients! Enjoy this small loaf, flavored with lemon zest and lemon juice!

    Today I want to share a recipe I originally got from one of the old food magazines I’ve kept for years with my collection of cookbooks. Occasionally I will scan through old magazines just for fun, and look for recipes I may not have tried before. That is where I first discovered this recipe for mini-loaf pound cake. I tweaked a couple of the ingredients, and we really enjoy the results- a small loaf of lemon-infused pound cake. YUM!

    This simple miniature loaf of pound cake is perfect when you don’t want (or need) a standard sized loaf. It is completely easy to make, and will yield 6 small slices. That is a nice size to nibble on with coffee or tea, or serve dolloped with your favorite fruit topping or ice cream for a quick dessert! Here’s how to make one mini-loaf pound cake:

    Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

    Making The Batter

    Before beginning, preheat your oven to 350°F. Since it only takes a few minutes to prepare the batter, you want it preheated and hot when the loaf is ready for baking! In a medium sized bowl, beat together softened butter and sugar, until well creamed and combined.

    Add an egg, and continue to beat until the batter is smooth, and the egg is fully incorporated. These are your “wet” ingredients.

    Softened butter and granulated sugar will be creamed together to begin making the batter.An egg is beaten into the creamed butter and sugar.

    In a SEPARATE bowl, whisk together all purpose flour and baking soda. These are your “dry” ingredients. Alternate adding buttermilk and these dry ingredients into the creamed wet ingredients, stirring as you add.

    Stir in the vanilla extract, lemon juice and lemon zest, and then the batter is ready! Now you’ve made the batter for the mini-loaf pound cake! See how easy that was?

    Buttermilk , flour, baking soda, and baking powder are stirred into the batter for the mini-loaf pound cake.Lemon juice, vanilla and lemon zest are added to and stirred into the batter until fully combined.

    Baking The Mini-Loaf Pound Cake

    Now it’s time to bake!  Grease (or spray with non-stick spray) a 5¾” x 3″ x 2″ mini loaf pan. Pour the batter into the pan, and spread it out evenly. Bake the mini-loaf pound cake for 30-35 minutes.

    When done, the loaf should be golden brown on top, and a toothpick inserted into the top of the loaf should come out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer it to a wire rack to cool.

    The batter for the mini-loaf pound cake is poured into a greased loaf pan, for baking.When done baking, the mini-loaf pound cake is golden brown on top.

    Slice And Serve The Mini-Loaf Pound Cake

    Let the pound cake cool (still in the pan) for at least 10 minutes before removing the loaf from the pan. This mini-loaf pound cake is best served at room temperature, in my opinion. I make a couple little loaves at a time, so we can enjoy one now, and then I freeze one for later!

    Once completely cooled, you can slice it up and serve it plain and unadorned (it’s great), or top it with ice cream, fruit toppings, etc. It tastes wonderful as a base for strawberry shortcake, too!

    Two loaves, cooling on a wire rack after being removed from the loaf pan.A look inside the pound cake, which is ready to serve after slicing.

    I really hope you will give this simple recipe a try. The hint of lemon in this loaf cake is a wonderful touch, and I trust you will enjoy this mini-loaf pound cake as much as we do. Thanks for stopping by, and please come back again soon for more family-friendly recipes.

    Make The Bread Batter

    Before mixing the bread batter, be sure to preheat your oven, because it doesn’t take long at all to prepare the batter! To make the batter, place flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, grated Parmesan cheese, oregano and finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes in a large mixing bowl. Stir well, to combine.

    In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, egg, and olive oil together until fully combined. Pour the egg mixture into the bowl with the flour mixture. 

    Flour, Parmesan cheese, spices and sun-dried tomatoes are combined in bowl.Egg, oil and milk mixture is added to the dry ingredients to make the bread batter.

    Stir, but only until all of the dry ingredients are incorporated into the batter. Be careful NOT to overmix. Pour or spoon the bread batter into a well greased and floured 8″ x 4″ loaf pan. Level the batter evenly in the pan. Now you’re ready to bake the sun-dried tomato Parmesan bread!

    Bake The Sun-Dried Tomato Parmesan Bread

    Place the sun-dried tomato Parmesan bread into a preheated 375°F. oven, and bake for 25-30 minutes. When done, it will be golden brown on top of the loaf. You can check to see if it’s done by inserting a toothpick into the top/center of the loaf. If it comes out clean, you know the sun-dried tomato Parmesan bread is fully baked.

    Let the bread cool (still in the pan) for several minutes before removing it from the loaf pan and transferring it to a wire rack to cool.

    Who Wants A Slice?

    We enjoy eating this bread warm, with softened butter spread on top! It is easier to slice once it has cooled down a bit. Once sliced, you can see the specks of oregano, and pieces of sun-dried tomatoes in the bread.

    The sun-dried tomato Parmesan bread is mild in flavor, but absolutely delicious. We really enjoy it served as a side dish for a salad or chicken, but you can’t go wrong with eating a piece all by itself (dripping with butter, ha ha). YUM!

    If you’ve been looking for a GREAT TASTING loaf of brown bread to make that is EASY, requires NO YEAST, and tastes fabulous, may I recommend this recipe for baked brown bread? I got the recipe originally from an older cookbook I have in my collection. It has truly become one of my most favorite breads!

    The recipe could not be easier! Combine dry ingredients, combine wet ingredients, and then pour them into a standard-sized loaf pan (9×5) and bake. BOOM! A yummy warm loaf of baked brown bread, ready to slather with soft butter OR eat it just as it is! YUM! Here’s how to make this simple bread loaf:

    Prepare The Batter For Baked Brown Bread

    The first thing you will do is preheat your oven to 350°F. It only takes a few minutes to prepare the bread batter, so you will want your oven hot and ready to roll once the batter is done, okay? OK.

    Whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl.  In a SEPARATE bowl, lightly beat an egg, then add milk and molasses, and whisk to combine these wet ingredients.

    Dry ingredients for the brown bread are whisked together in large bowl.In a separate bowl, milk, molasses and beaten egg are combined.

    Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Add a Tablespoon of melted vegetable shortening, then stir the ingredients well to fully combine. This is the batter for the baked brown bread. See how easy that was to make?

    Wet brown bread batter is added to the dry ingredients and stirred, to combine.Batter for baked brown bread is now ready to add to prepared loaf pan for baking.

    Time To Make Some Baked Brown Bread!

    Generously spray or grease the bottom and sides of a 9×5 loaf pan. Pour all of the batter into the prepared pan. Place the pan on the middle rack of the oven, and bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the top of the loaf comes out clean.

    HALFWAY through the baking time, quickly sprinkle the top of the loaf with old fashioned rolled oats, if desired. This is an optional step, but I think it looks great on the loaf once done.

    The Baked Brown Bread Is Ready To Enjoy!

    When the bread is done baking (and a toothpick comes out clean), remove the pan from the oven. Let the baked brown bread cool (still in the pan) for about 15 minutes. Run a butter knife carefully around the edges of the bread, then carefully turn the pan over, and the bread should release from the pan.

    Let the bread cool a bit longer on a wire rack before slicing. We like to eat this delicious bread while still warm (but not HOT).  Spread some softened butter on a slice, and dig in! It tastes wonderful. It has great flavor, a deep brown color. We enjoy eating slices of this bread as is, or toasted or broiled, and slathered with butter.
