Cinnamon Mascarpone Pudding

Before I take my annual trip to France, I leave you with this Cinnamon Mascarpone Pudding. *insert drooling emoji* It’s the perfect introduction to Autumn with a touch of cinnamon and a velvety mascarpone base. Pudding at it’s finest. And completely self explanatory. For other mascarpone recipes check these out: Blueberry & Lemon Mascarpone Tart and Speculoos &…

Apple Toffee Bars

This dessert is for my sweet-tooth compadres. It’s absolutely decadent; sweet and rich. Soft and melt-y. It’s like a blondie in texture and taste but with tart apple pieces and toffee bits in each bite and with a sweet brown sugar frosting. The apples on my tree produced early this year so I’ve been enjoying…

3 Ingredient Orange Gummies (Paleo)

Healthy. Full of natural vitamin C. No artificial dyes, sweeteners, or flavors. Paleo. 3 ingredients. Naturally fat-free. And most importantly, delicious. If I’d known making gummy bears would have been this easy, I’d have been making them for years. They’re a simple combination of fresh orange juice (or other fresh fruit juice), gelatin, and a…

Apple Clafoutis

This recipe is adapted from Julia Child. So you know it has to be good. What it lacks in appearance, it makes up for in taste. Clafoutis is traditionally made with cherries, as I’ve done here: Cherry Clafoutis. It can however, be made with almost any fruit. My favorite is this apple version. It’s a French dessert…

Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

My Dad is the reason why I like to incorporate poppy seeds into bakes. I grew up eating “Daddy’s bread” which was packed full of them. My Dad baked bread every week with his two trusty sidekicks: the bread machine and me. One of my earliest memories as a kid was sitting on the kitchen…

Old Fashioned Raspberry Cobbler

One of the best aspects of having a blog and an Instagram account dedicated to it’s content, is the people you get to share it with. Desserts, and food in general, truly bring people together. Old friendships have resurfaced and new friendships have blossomed since creating A Bee Bakes. @dedric12 is a new, albeit virtual,…

Almond Cake, L’amandier (GF)

This cake is ridiculously good. When taking a taste, for the first time, I turned to Fabien and said, “I cannot believe I just made something THIS good.” And I’m not bragging, it’s the cake! You can make it too. It’s gluten free, made in the ease of just one bowl, and French in origin….

Polka Dot Bread

Who knew bread could be cute? And now that we know it can be, is this not the cutest bread ever?! I was delighted when I came across it, and relieved to see the dots within, once it it came time to slicing. The preparation felt reminiscent of yeasted cinnamon rolls such as Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls….

Low Fat Apple Cake

No butter, no oil, and quite low in calories, 116 per slice to be exact. And yet, this is such such a flavorful and moist cake. It’s still dessert. The apple is prominent, as it calls for six! The fruit is cooked just right, not mushy at all, and plays perfectly with the soft crumb…

Nectarine Upside-Down Cake

    Every month or so, I post a story on Instagram (@abeebakes) with my latest “baking fails.” All of my recipes are adapted or inspired by others, and sometimes the changes that I make (reducing sugar, changing fruit, adding spices, using healthier ingredients, etc.) don’t always work, or at the bare minimum, require quite…
