Triple Berry French Toast Cups (for 2) are filled with yummy raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cream cheese and maple syrup, then baked.

Today I want to share this delicious recipe for Triple Berry French Toast Cups. They are easy to prepare, and taste wonderful! I found the original recipe years ago in one of my old “Taste of Home” magazines (from 2006) and slightly adapted it for our taste preferences. You will need to have a couple of 8 ounce, oven-safe ramekins to make these single serving breakfast treats, but they are readily available in lots of retail stores or online.

This simple recipe makes two servings, and I am confident you will enjoy it! You will need to plan a little bit ahead, because an important step is to refrigerate the French toast cups for at least an hour BEFORE baking, to give the egg filling time to soak into the bread cubes. Other than that, they are truly simple to make, and taste great, especially if you serve them topped with sifted powdered sugar and berry-flavored pancake syrup. Here’s how to make triple berry French toast cups:

Prepare The Triple Berry French Toast Cups

Lightly grease (or spray) two 8 ounce ramekins on the bottom and sides. Evenly divide HALF of the stale, day old bread cubes (can use French bread or sourdough) between the two dishes (reserve the other half of the bread cubes for later). The reason you use day old or stale bread cubes is because they are firmer than fresh bread cubes, and will hold up better after liquid is added. This helps the bread NOT to turn mushy.

Add the raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, evenly diving the fruit between both ramekins. I used a total of 1/2 cup berries (divided) from a bag of triple berry blend, but this dish will still turn out perfectly if you don’t have access to all three fruits.  NOTE: We love the flavor combination of using all three berries, but if you only have raspberries? Use 1/2 cup total. Only have blueberries? Only use 1/2 cup total.  You get the picture. However you want to make these (whatever combination), just use a total amount of 1/2 cup of berries.

Top the berries with softened cream cheese cubes, and then divide the remaining bread cubes on top of the cream cheese. Set aside while you make the easy egg filling.

Stale bread cubes are placed into greased ramekins.A layer of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries is topped with cubes of cream cheese. The last layer to be added is the remaining day old bread cubes.

Soak With Egg Mixture And Refrigerate

Now it’s time to make the egg “filling. Place eggs, milk and maple syrup in a medium bowl, and whisk with a fork or wire whisk until combined. Pour the egg mixture into the ramekins, being sure to evenly divide the liquid between both dishes. Use the back of a spoon to gently press the bread cubes down as much as possible into the egg mixture. You need to do this, so the bread cubes can absorb the egg filling as much as possible before baking.

Now comes the hard part… waiting! Cover with plastic wrap, and put the ramekins into a refrigerator for at least 1 hour (or more). The bread cubes need time to absorb as much of that egg mixture as possible. Sometimes I make these at night before going to bed, then they’re ready to go first thing in the morning. Occasionally I unwrap them, and push the bread cubes down again into the liquid. They won’t ever be fully covered… just get them into the liquid as much as possible for best results!

TIP: Remove the triple berry French toast cups from the refrigerator 25-30 minutes before baking (to take the chill off). Preheat your oven to 350°F during this time.

Eggs, milk and real maple syrup are whisked together before adding to the French toast cups.The top layer of bread cubes is pressed down into the egg filling to absorb the liquid.

Bake The Triple Berry French Toast Cups

Bake the triple berry French toast cups in a preheated 350°F. oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes. When done, they should be golden brown on top, and the egg filling will be “set” in the middle. Let them cool on a wire rack for 3-4 minutes. 

After they have cooled for 3-4 minutes, and you’re ready to serve, carefully run a butter knife around the edges of the ramekin to loosen the edges. Using a large spoon, carefully remove the French toast cups in one piece out of the dish, and transfer to individual serving plates.

Triple berry French toast cups are baked until golden brown and the egg filling has "set".Each of the triple berry French toast cups is removed from ramekin and transferred to a plate.

Time To Eat!

The French toast cups are not overly sweet, as is, so our absolute FAVORITE way to serve them is to sift a little bit of powdered sugar on top, and then drizzle it all with some berry-flavored pancake syrup! YUMMO! I like to use my homemade blackberry pancake syrup. It compliments this dish well, with even more berry flavor and sweetness.

My husband and I love this breakfast (even though it’s an “occasional” treat!), and hope you (and those you love) will enjoy it, as well. It’s REALLY delicious, and looks good on the plate, too!

    Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Bites

    It’s easy to make a dozen moist Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Bites (no added sugar) in under 30 minutes for a yummy breakfast or snack!
    It's easy to make a dozen moist Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Bites (no added sugar) in under 30 minutes for a yummy breakfast or snack!

    If you’re looking for a tasty, easy to prepare breakfast treat that contains no extra added sugar, may I suggest these apple cinnamon baked oatmeal bites? I found the recipe on Pinterest a while ago, and am just now getting around to sharing the recipe here on my blog.

    These yummy, muffin-sized breakfast bites are sweetened naturally with two medium-ripe bananas and an apple! Another plus is… not only do they taste great, they are low calorie (under 90 calories each). That’s a WIN-WIN!

    This recipe makes one dozen apple cinnamon baked oatmeal bites, and they are ridiculously EASY to prepare (into the oven in about 10 minutes). Basically, if you can stir ingredients, you can make these yummy baked oatmeal bites. Here’s how easy they are to make:

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

    Make The Batter For Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Bites

    In a medium-sized bowl, mash two medium-ripe bananas with the backside of a fork. For this recipe it’s important the bananas are not overly ripe or too mushy (completely brown on the outside) OR not ripe enough (too firm- green on the peels). You want them soft and ripe enough they are easy to mash (a few brown spots on the peels). The bananas are the ingredient that will add most of the sweetness to the oatmeal bites, so you want them “just right”.

    Add one egg to the banana mixture, and continue to stir until the mashed bananas and egg are combined.

    Bananas are being mashed using the backside of a fork.An egg is added to the bananas mixture and beaten in with a fork until combined.

    Now you will add the old-fashioned oats, cinnamon, baking powder, milk and a pinch of salt to the banana mixture in the bowl. Stir these ingredients well, until the “batter” is mixed together. Add the diced apple pieces, and stir until they have been fully incorporated into the batter.

    NOTE: You can use unpeeled OR peeled apples in this recipe. Either way is perfectly fine! I tend to not peel them, because I like the pop of color in the apple cinnamon baked oatmeal bites! I also recommend using a firm sweet apple, like Fuji, Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious, McIntosh, etc. to help add sweetness to the baked oatmeal bites, since there is no added sugar in the recipe. 

    Old-fashioned oats, cinnamon, milk, salt and baking powder are added to banana mixture.Diced apples are added to the batter for the apple cinnamon baked oatmeal bites.

    Cooking Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Bites

    Line 12 standard-sized muffin cups with paper liners OR lightly spray each cup with non-stick baking spray. Because the batter is quite chunky, I recommend using the paper liners, but ultimately that’s your choice. Evenly divide the apple cinnamon baked oatmeal bites batter into the cups. Each cup will end up being about 2/3 full.

    Bake in a preheated 375°F. oven (on the middle rack) for 15-16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the top center comes out clean. Remove the muffin pan from the oven, and let them cool for a few minutes, before removing each one out of the pan. As you can see in the 2 photos below, there is not much visible difference in the color before baking (top photo) and after baking (bottom photo).

    Apple cinnamon baked oatmeal bites batter is evenly divided into paper-lined muffin tins.After baking, the apple cinnamon baked oatmeal bites cool to room temperature.

    Transfer the apple cinnamon baked oatmeal bites to a wire rack to cool completely. As they cool, you may see them pull away from the paper liners a bit. That’s perfectly fine!

    After cooling on a wire rack, the 12 baked oatmeal bites are ready to eat.

    Ready To Enjoy Some Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Bites?

    Once they have cooled to room temperature, these little bites of oatmeal apple goodness are ready to eat! They are moist, flavorful, and filled with soft, tender pieces of apple! I truly feel these breakfast treats taste their best at room temperature (and not served hot). Again… that is your choice, whether to serve them at room temperature or slightly warm.

    You can store any leftovers in an airtight container on the counter. They do not have to be refrigerated, and will stay moist for 3-4 days. You can also wrap them really well and store them in your freezer for 2-3 months, if desired.

    The paper liner pulled away reveals one of the finished apple cinnamon baked apple bites.

    I really enjoy these simple breakfast bites and hope you will, too! Sometimes the simplest breakfasts can be filling and tasty, and this is one of them. I usually eat two of them for each meal, because of their low calorie count, Thank you so much for stopping by this blog. I hope you have a wonderful day… and come back soon! God Bless You!

    Before you begin, preheat your oven to 350° F. This recipe comes together fast, so you want the oven hot, once the batter is ready to go.

    Place flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir or whisk them to combine. Once combined, add fresh or frozen blueberries and orange zest to the mixture. NOTE: If using frozen blueberries, do NOT thaw them before adding them to the mixture.

    Pumpkin Spice Waffles

    Pumpkin Spice Waffles are an amazing breakfast treat all year long! Golden brown, crispy, and simple to make- you’re gonna love ’em!
    Pumpkin Spice Waffles are an amazing breakfast treat all year long! Golden brown, crispy, and simple to make- you're gonna love 'em!

    Do you enjoy waffles? We sure do in our home! Every few weeks, my husband will ask if we can have waffles for breakfast, and out comes our trusty ol’ waffle iron. We don’t have waffles too often (gotta keep our girlish figures, right? *wink wink*), but when we do, we love ’em!

    The easy recipe I want to share today is for pumpkin spice waffles. With the inclusion of canned pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice mix in the batter, there is a really nice Fall-inspired flavor to these yummy breakfast treats! They’re crispy, golden brown, and delicious! Remember- even though they are “Fall-inspired” doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this hearty breakfast year-round! Here’s how to make them:

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

    Make The Batter

    Whisk buttermilk, pumpkin puree, melted butter and eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Continue to whisk these wet ingredients until the mixture is smooth.

    Pumpkin puree, eggs, buttermilk and butter are whisked together for the batter.The wet ingredients are whisked for the pumpkin spice waffles batter.

    In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk (or stir) together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. NOTE: I make my own pumpkin pie spice mix… you can find my recipe here.

    Pour the wet batter into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir the batter only until all ingredients are mixed and moistened. It’s okay if the batter is still a little bit lumpy… just don’t overmix.

    Flour sugar and spices are combined for the waffle batter.Pumpkin-flavored batter is added to the dry ingredients for the waffles.

    Cook The Pumpkin Spice Waffles

    Preheat your waffle iron, brushing with oil, if required by manufacturer instructions. If using a standard sized waffle iron, you will use about 1/2 cup of batter for each waffle (for a yield of 4-6 waffles). If using a Belgian waffle maker (as shown below), you will use about 1 cup of batter per waffle (for a yield of 3 waffles). 

    Cook the waffles according to manufacturer instructions and timing recommendations. Depending on the type waffle make you use, they will typically cook for somewhere between 3-5 minutes. When done, the pumpkin spice waffles should be crispy and lightly browned. Remove waffle, and serve immediately.

    Note: The batter for this recipe is fairly thick, so do not use with a “pour into the top” type of waffle iron (some newer models). The first time I made these I tried a new type of waffle iron I had been given, where you pour the batter through a type of funnel into the top without opening the waffle iron. Complete failure, cause the batter was too thick for the funnel loader. My bad.

    To serve, top the hot pumpkin spice waffles with a bit of butter, and drizzle with maple syrup. Serve hot, and enjoy!

    We really enjoy the warm Fall-inspired flavors of these pumpkin spice waffles. I hope you will too! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you come back again soon. Have a GREAT day!

    Ingredients
    • cups all purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    • teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • cups buttermilk
    • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree NOT pumpkin pie filling
    • 2 large eggs
    • ¼ cup butter, melted
    Instructions
    1. Whisk buttermilk, pumpkin puree, melted butter and eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Continue to whisk until mixture is smooth.

    2. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk (or stir) together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Pour wet batter into bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir only until all ingredients are mixed and moistened. It's okay if batter is a little bit lumpy... don't overmix.

    3. Preheat waffle iron, brushing with oil, if suggested by manufacturer instructions. If using a standard sized waffle iron, use about 1/2 cup of batter for each waffle (yield of 4-6 waffles). If using a Belgian waffle maker, use about 1 cup of batter per waffle (yield of 3 waffles).  Cook according to manufacturer instructions. Depending on the type waffle make you use, they will typically cook for somewhere between 3-5 minutes. When done, waffles should be crispy and lightly browned. Remove waffle; serve immediately, topped with butter and maple syrup. Enjoy!

    Quiche Lorraine

    Quiche Lorraine is delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Easy to make, and filled with bacon, eggs, and cheese… you’re gonna love it!
    Quiche Lorraine is delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Easy to make, and filled with bacon, eggs, and cheese... you're gonna love it!

    Quiche Lorraine is a versatile, easy and delicious dish, which can be enjoyed as a main dish or as a side dish! I’ve always wondered “just WHO is Lorraine, and why is HER quiche so famous?” So I did a little bit of research to find out the history of this yummy dish.

    Turns out, LORRAINE isn’t a woman (who knew?). It is a region in France that borders Germany. The story goes that in medieval times, this region (originally called Lothringen) was under German rule, and a recipe for a savory cake was created there. The French word “quiche” is derived from the German word “kuchen”, which basically means “cake”. Many years later, after the region had returned to French rule, the “Quiche Lorraine” recipe was “enhanced”, and became the name of this beloved dish.

    There are multitudes of quiche recipes with a variety of ingredients created throughout the world, but the Quiche Lorraine remains the most famous and loved. Apparently chef Julia Child is often credited for exposing  America to this classic dish, which typically includes pie crust, eggs, bacon (or other meat), and cheese.

    We love this dish because it is so EASY to make, and tastes absolutely wonderful! This is my “go-to” favorite quiche, and I’ve been making it for over 40 years! Here’s how to make it:

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

    A Word About The Pie Crust

    For this recipe you can use a homemade 9″ pie shell OR a purchased deep-dish pie shell. Either type will work just fine for this recipe. Of course, a purchased pie shell is quicker and more convenient, but I like to use my Mom’s recipe for homemade pie crusts. 

    Arrange the prepared pie dough in a 9″ pie pan, and crimp the edges to form a crust. Use the tines of a fork to prick the bottom and sides of the crust (as shown below).

    A 9-inch unbaked deep dish pie shell is pricked with a fork before adding ingredients.

    Making The Quiche Lorraine Is EASY!

    Preheat your oven to 425°F. Okay… putting this quiche together is EASY!  Place the cooked, crumbled crispy bacon on the bottom of the pie shell, spreading to cover. Add the chopped onions, and then top it off with grated Swiss cheese.

    Cooked, crumbled bacon and chopped onions are added to pie shell.Grated Swiss cheese is added to the quiche ingredients in pie shell.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together heavy whipping cream, eggs, sugar, salt and cayenne pepper until fully combined. Pour this liquid over the ingredients in the pie shell. The pie shell will be very full!

    Carefully give the ingredients a tiny bit of a stir, bringing some of the bacon, onion and cheese up to the surface. You don’t have to mix it up real well, just enough to kind of “marry” the ingredients. Now you’re ready to bake your Quiche Lorraine!

    Eggs, whipping cream and spices are whisked for the Quiche Lorraine.Egg and cream mixture is poured over bacon, onion and cheese in pie shell.

    Baking The Quiche Loraine

    Carefully place the Quiche Lorraine on the middle rack of a preheated 425°F. oven. Be careful to not slosh it around, because it will be full (just a helpful tip!). Bake at 425°F. for 15 minutes, turn the oven down to 300°F. and continue cooking it for 30 more minutes.

    You’ll know it’s done when the top is golden brown and a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Transfer the quiche to a wire rack to cool down a bit (still in pie pan). You’ll see how puffy the quiche is, from the hot air inside. The top of the quiche will “flatten” as the air dissipates inside while it cools. That is what it is supposed to do!

    Quiche Lorraine is ready to bake in a hot oven.Top of the quiche is golden brown after baking.Hot air puffs up the Quiche Lorraine after baking.

    Ready To Eat!

    Once the top of the quiche has flattened and it has cooled for 10-15 minutes, it’s ready to slice and enjoy! The Quiche Lorraine can be eaten hot, warm, cold, OR at room temperature, whichever way you prefer.

    Slice the quiche into 8 portions (or 6 if you want larger pieces!), serve, and enjoy! It’s filled with GREAT flavor, lots of cheese, and yummy bacon. We love this quiche, and have it for breakfast, lunch OR dinner! Cover and store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days. You can easily microwave leftover pieces of quiche to bring them back to the temperature you prefer! 

    A slice of quiche is removed, revealing bacon and onions inside.A slice of Quiche Lorraine, with fresh fruit on the side.

    I really hope you will try this quiche, because it is sooo good! It is by far the most famous of all quiches, and is a great dish to have around, for a delicious dinner, lunch or breakfast! Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day. Come back soon!

    Egg In A Basket

    Learn how to make an Egg In A Basket! Toasted, buttery sourdough bread cradles a fried egg in the middle, in this easy to make breakfast!

    Have you ever heard of making an egg in a basket? It can also be called egg in a nest, and is a fun way to serve an egg and toast in a cute little “package”. Several well-known family restaurants have served this dish over the years (including Cracker Barrel). 

    Today I want to show you how to make an egg in a basket for yourself or someone you love. I found the recipe in one of my cookbooks many years ago. Typically I use a thick slice of sourdough bread because it holds up really well, but truthfully, you can use whatever bread you enjoy.

    I finally took some photos of the cooking process to share here on the ol’ blog. The “recipe” can be easily doubled, tripled or quadrupled for as many servings as you want! Here’s how to make this fun breakfast dish:

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

    How To Make An Egg In A Basket

    Butter one side of a slice of sourdough bread, (reserving a little bit of butter to add to your skillet later). Use a 2¼” biscuit cutter OR a pint jar lid or jar to carefully cut out a circle from the middle of the buttered side of the bread. Save both pieces of buttered bread.

    A jar or jar lid is used to cut out a circle in buttered bread.A hole has been made in the slice of sourdough bread.

    Heat a skillet (or a griddle) on medium heat. Place the slice of bread (and the round cut out) BUTTER SIDE DOWN in the hot skillet. Cook them for about 2 minutes, or just until the bottom side begins to turn golden brown. Place the reserved tiny bit of butter into the hole and let it melt.

    Buttered bread and circle are cooked butter side down until browned.

    Cooking The Egg In A Basket

    As soon as the butter has melted, carefully crack an egg into the hole, being careful to not break the yolk. Lightly salt and pepper the egg.

    Cook the egg in a basket for 1-2 more minutes (I usually do 2 minutes), until the egg begins to set and solidify in the bread. Carefully turn the bread and egg over to the other side, (trying to not splash egg white all over the place) or break the yolk. Just be gentle and patient and you can do it! Flip over the little toasted bread round at the same time, too!

    Butter is added to hole in bread, then an egg is cracked into hole.After cooking for a couple minutes, the egg in a basket is flipped to other side.

    Continue to cook the egg for another minute, or until it reaches your desired “done-ness”. Transfer the egg in a basket to a serving plate, and garnish with chopped parsley or chopped chives, if desired.

    Serve the little toasted round of bread on the side, and enjoy this scrumptious breakfast with some fresh fruit, and sausage or bacon. YUM!

    The finished egg in a basket is sprinkled with parsley and served.

    I hope you enjoy this breakfast dish. It’s a cute and different way to serve up a traditional egg and toast breakfast! Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful day. Come back soon!

    To serve the maple nut oatmeal, add a bit of additional milk (if desired) and stir to the consistency you prefer (oatmeal will be thick). Drizzle a little maple syrup over the top of each serving OR sprinkle each portion with a teaspoon of brown sugar (optional, but recommended).

    Grab a spoon, and enjoy this delicious breakfast! Creamy, crunchy, and chewy, this maple nut oatmeal tastes great, and it is very filling! I think you’re gonna love it!

    A serving of maple nut oatmeal is served hot, sprinkled with brown sugar.

    Any leftover oatmeal can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 days, and can be easily reheated in a microwave. You will probably want to stir in a little bit more milk before microwaving it to ensure a creamy texture. This recipe can be easily doubled in case you have a larger family, or want to have extra maple nut oatmeal pre-made in the fridge for quick, filling breakfasts on the go! 

    Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have the opportunity to make this yummy and “not boring” oatmeal for yourself or those you love. Have a wonderful day, and come back soon!

      Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

      Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is a delicious, easy-to make treat. The recipe yields two 9×5 loaves, perfect for gift-giving or snacking.
      Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is a delicious, easy-to make treat. The recipe yields two 9x5 loaves, perfect for gift-giving or snacking.

      Do you enjoy banana bread? We sure do! Years ago I made some simple tweaks to my mom’s recipe for banana nut bread, and started making golden brown loaves of moist, chocolate chip banana bread (filled with chocolate chips and without the nuts). How can you go wrong by adding chocolate to just about anything? Not sure it’s possible.

      Anyways, this simple recipe was born from her recipe. The recipe makes two big loaves of this delicious, moist bread. It hardly takes any time at all to whip up the batter, and then all that is left to do is pop ’em in the oven, and wait for them to be done. Easy Peasy! Here’s how to make this yummy bread, which can be a snack or a breakfast treat. We like to eat our slices warm, with a dab of soft butter on them. YUM. Here’s how to make this bread:

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

      Make The Batter

      Making the batter is simple. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and granulated sugar into a large bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips, reserving some (1/4 cup) to add to the top of the loaves before baking. These are the “dry ingredients”.

      Dry ingredients are sifted, together then chocolate chips are added.

      In a separate bowl, whisk or stir together eggs, oil, lemon juice, and mashed (very ripe) bananas. You will want to use bananas that have brown spots all over the peels (very ripe), because they will be the sweetest, which is perfect for this bread. These are your “wet ingredients”.

      Once combined, pour the “wet ingredients” into the bowl with the “dry ingredients”, and stir well, only until all the ingredients are combined. Do not over-mix the batter.

      Mashed bananas, eggs, oil, and lemon juice are combined in bowl.The wet ingredients are poured into the bowl of dry ingredients.The banana bread batter is stirred only until ingredients are combined.

      Bake The Chocolate Chip Banana Bread 

      Now it’s time to bake the chocolate chip banana bread. Spray two 9×5″ loaf pans with non-stick baking spray (bottom and sides). Evenly divide the batter between the two pans. Sprinkle the reserved 1/4 cup of chocolate chips over the top of the bread batter.

      Place the loaves on the middle rack in a preheated 350°F oven. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the top comes out clean. I recommend checking the bread at 50 minutes, then again, until done. The chocolate chip banana bread should be golden brown on top. Let the loaves cool for 10-15 minutes (in the pan) on a wire rack, before attempting to remove them from the pans.

      Once the loaves have cooled, run a butter knife around the edges of the pan. Place a platter on top of a loaf, and holding both the platter and the loaf pan… invert the loaf upside down. It should come out of the pan easily (if you greased your pan well!).

      Slice and serve. Each loaf should give you about 8 slices of this delicious bread. It is delicious slightly warmed, with butter, too! YUM.
      NOTE: This bread also freezes very well, if wrapped well, in plastic wrap and aluminum foil.

      Category: Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
      Cuisine: American
      Keyword: chocolate chip banana bread
      Servings: 16 (2 loaves)
      Calories Per Serving: 386 kcal
      Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
      Ingredients
      • 4 cups all purpose flour
      • 4 teaspoons baking powder
      • 1 teaspoon baking soda
      • teaspoons salt
      • 1 cup granulated sugar
      • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips , divided
      • 2 large eggs , slightly beaten
      • ½ cup vegetable oil
      • 2 cups mashed VERY RIPE bananas (approx. 4 med. bananas)
      • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice (fresh)
      Instructions
      1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease or spray two 9x5 loaf pans with non-stick baking spray.

      2. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and granulated sugar into a large bowl. Stir in chocolate chips (reserving 1/4 cup) to add to the top of loaves before baking.

      3. In a separate bowl, whisk or stir together eggs, oil, lemon juice, and mashed (very ripe) bananas. Once combined, pour it into bowl with the "dry ingredients". Stir well, only until all ingredients are incorporated. Don't over-mix batter.

      4. Evenly divide batter between pans. Sprinkle reserved 1/4 cup chocolate chips over the top. Place loaves on the middle rack of oven. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the top comes out clean. I recommend checking bread at 50 minutes, then again, until done/golden brown on top. Let loaves cool 10-15 minutes (in the pan) on a wire rack, before attempting to remove from pans.

      5. Once cooled, run a butter knife around edges of pan. Place a platter on top of a loaf, and holding both the platter and the pan, invert the loaf upside down. It should come out of the pan easily (if you greased your pan well!). Slice and serve. Each loaf should yield 8 slices. Enjoy!

      Recipe Notes

      If making mini-loaves, you will probably get 5-6 mini-loaves. These should be baked between 30-35 minutes.

      Crispy Homemade Hash Browns

      It’s easy to make crispy homemade hash browns to serve with a favorite breakfast. Crunchy on the outside, & soft inside, they’re DELICIOUS!
      It's easy to make crispy homemade hash browns to serve with a favorite breakfast. Crunchy on the outside, & soft inside, they're DELICIOUS!

      Anyone want hash browns with their breakfast? Me, me, me! My husband and I love crispy hash browns, especially with a good egg breakfast, but don’t have them too often. Most weekday mornings we grab coffee and an English muffin or have granola. HOWEVER… there is nothing like a big hearty breakfast on the weekends!

      These crispy homemade hash browns are a wonderful accompaniment to a “full-on” breakfast, and they are very easy to make! They don’t take too much time or effort to make, either. I’ve been making them this way for years, and finally took photos so I could share the recipe with you on my blog!

      Golden brown, crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, these buttery, shredded potatoes taste amazing! Here’s how to make them:

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

      Prepare The Potatoes

      When I make hash browns, I like to use medium-sized Yukon gold or red potatoes. I had a few German butterball potatoes left from our garden (very similar to Yukons), so I used them for the photos. It’s certainly okay to use russets, but I personally like the color and flavor of the other varieties best. If using russets, use one really large or two medium sized potatoes to make two servings (as written in the recipe card)

      Peel the potatoes, and then use a box grater to shred them immediately. Be sure to grate the potatoes immediately before cooking, so they don’t turn brown from exposure to air! I always shred them onto several thicknesses of paper towels, to help absorb moisture. Cover the shredded potatoes with several more paper towels, and press firmly to remove as much moisture from the potatoes as possible.

      Removing as much moisture as possible will help create CRISPY hash browns. The potatoes will turn crispy while cooking instead of steaming in the additional moisture that was not removed. Trust me.

      Potatoes are peeled, then grated onto paper towels.Paper towels are used to press into the grated potatoes to absorb excess moisture.

      Time To Cook Crispy Homemade Hash Browns!

      Okay… the potatoes are grated, and the excess moisture has been absorbed. Now it’s time to cook some crispy homemade hash browns! Add vegetable oil and butter to a large heavy skillet. TIP: If you have a cast iron skillet, use it! Cook on medium-high heat, stirring until the butter melts, and the skillet is really hot, but not smoking.

      Carefully add the shredded potatoes to the hot skillet, evenly distributing them on the bottom of the skillet in a shallow layer. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Once you have the layer of potatoes spread out, do not disturb or move them.

      Butter is melted into vegetable oil in large skillet.The hash browns are placed in hot skillet and seasoned.

      Flip And Continue Cooking

      Cook the crispy homemade hash browns for 3-4 minutes without disturbing them. When you begin to see the bottom edges begin to get golden brown and crispy, carefully turn the hash browns over in one piece, if possible.

      Continue cooking an additional 3-4 minutes, occasionally pressing down firmly on the top of the hash browns with the back of a spatula. Flip the hash browns back over to the original side and cook 1-2 more minutes until they are crispy on the outside and lightly browned all over.

      The crispy homemade hash browns are cooked, then flipped to cook other side.Seasoned crispy hash browns are fully cooked and ready to serve.

      Time To EAT!

      Evenly divide the crispy homemade hash browns into two portions and place on plates, keeping each portion intact, if possible.  Serve immediately, adding additional salt and pepper, if desired, to suit your own personal taste.

      We enjoyed these hash browns served with a ham and cheese egg scramble and a slice of toast with my homemade strawberry jam. They were crispy, buttery, and absolutely DELICIOUS!

      Rum Raisin Muffins

      Rum Raisin Muffins are an easy to prepare breakfast treat! Brown sugar muffins filled with rum-soaked raisins! Recipe yields 1 dozen.

      I originally found this recipe for rum raisin muffins in one of the many cookbooks I have collected over the years. This recipe has a very basic brown sugar batter, and has lots of rum-marinated raisins inside. It sounded intriguing, so I made them the first time for my husband and I.

      We really liked them! They are not overly sweet, and honestly don’t taste too “rum-like” (in case you’re wondering), but are a moist, yummy muffin. They’re perfect for a quick breakfast or snack, and are very easy to make! Here’s how:

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

      Do You REALLY Soak The Raisins In Rum?

      Yes. For this recipe, the raisins are soaked in a very small amount of rum. The alcohol will cook out as the muffins bake, leaving a small bit of flavor behind. You can use light rum, dark rum, or coconut rum, whatever type you have access to.

      The raisins will take an hour to soak, so plan ahead! Truly, this is the only thing about the entire recipe that will take time. Place the raisins in a small bowl, and stir in the rum, until the raisins are coated. Let them sit for one hour, stirring occasionally, to allow the rum to lightly infuse the raisins with extra flavor. Do NOT drain, once done.

      Raisins are soaked in rum before adding to muffin batter.

      Prepare The Muffin Batter

      Before beginning, preheat your oven to 400°F, and grease or line with paper liners a 12 cup muffin pan. Now let’s make the batter! It’s a cinch. Sift all purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar, and stir well, to combine the dry ingredients.

      Brown sugar is stirred into sifted flour, baking powder and salt.

      Place two eggs in a separate bowl, and whisk them lightly. Add the oil and milk, and whisk these wet ingredients together until fully combined.

      Milk is added to beaten eggs and oil in large bowl.Wet ingredients are whisked together before adding to dry ingredients.

      Finish The Batter

      Hollow out a “well” in the middle of the bowl of dry ingredients, and pour in the wet ingredients. Now add the rum-soaked raisins (and any leftover liquid from their bowl) to the mix. Stir all the batter ingredients together gently until everything is combined. Be careful to not overmix the batter. Stir only until all ingredients have been incorporated into a slightly thick batter.

      Wet ingredients and rum-soaked raisins are added to dry ingredients.The batter for the rum raisin muffins is ready to use.

      Bake The Rum Raisin Muffins

      Carefully pour or spoon the batter into the 12 prepared muffin cups, evenly dividing the batter between them. The batter will fill each cup to between 1/2 and 2/3 full.

      Bake the rum raisin muffins at 400°F for 18-20 minutes. Test to see if they are done around the 18 minutes mark, by inserting a toothpick into the top of a muffin. If it comes out clean, they are done. The finished muffins will have risen considerably, and be nicely browned. Remove pan from oven. Let muffins cool (still in the pan) for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

      Paper-lined muffin cups are filled with the muffin batter.After baking, the rum raisin muffins are nicely browned on top.

      Time To Eat!

      The rum raisin muffins are delicious, served warm, with a dab of softened butter. They are also yummy, when eaten at room temperature, just as they are. They are filled with plump, chewy raisins, and taste wonderful. I really hope you enjoy them.

      Each of the rum raisin muffins is full of rum-soaked raisins!

      Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have the opportunity to try this recipe for rum raisin muffins. They freeze well, so if you can’t possibly finish them all in one sitting, pop a few into re-sealable freezer bags and toss ’em in the freezer to enjoy at a later date.
