Blueberry Ricotta Muffins with Lemon Sugar Topping

I must have a dozen variations on the blueberry muffin theme here on CSPS, and here is yet another one. This one is unique in that I was mostly out of dairy and only had ricotta in the house, so I used that. Also, there is actually less sugar in these than some of the other sorts. They did come out lovely though, with that extra bit of lemony sugar crunch on the top.

Caramel Rum Banana Streusel Coffee Cake

A few weeks ago, I made this awesome Caramel Rum Banana Bread. It was pretty delicious, so when I had to make something “breakfast-y” for today, I decided to turn more or less the exact same recipe into a coffee cake by adding a streusel topping. Equally as epic… and it doesn’t hurt that you can say that you had rum for breakfast on a Friday! 🙂

French-style Onion and Bacon Tart

Stopping in quickly at this Friday lunchtime to share my little tart that I made this morning. I had some leftover bacon from something else that I didn’t miraculously just snack on, so I put together this little lunch. It’s like a quiche, yet not quite so eggy and more fillings. All in all, not a bad way to “use up bacon” (not that anyone ever has that problem). 🙂

Caramel Rum Banana Bread

So, I’ve been trying to post this recipe for this absolutely magical Caramel Rum Banana Bread since it came out of the oven this morning. Every time I make a new variation on banana bread, I declare it to be “my new favorite”. but I think this one really tops it. It’s spectacularly yummy. And I’ve been snacking on it all day… banana bread, not just for breakfast anymore (it’s quite nice this afternoon with a cup of tea as well).

Cranberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Here’s a quick and easy recipe, if you are still looking for something to add to your Christmas morning breakfast or brunch: Cranberry Chocolate Chip Muffins! Festive and cheery, sweet from the chocolate and tart from the cranberries, just a dusting of sugar at the end before baking to have a crispy topping. They come together in under 20 minutes, and take another 30ish to bake, they are great straight out of the oven.

PS: The ones in the photograph are “over-stuffed” because the muffin liners were so big, so I had to bake them for about 5 minutes longer. If you are using the regular sized muffin liners, then 20-25 minutes should be enough time in the oven.
