Cinnamon Muffins

If you’ve been following ABeeBakes for a while now, you may have noticed a consistent output of recipes involving cinnamon, as I have here again today. I also have an innumerable amount of cream cheese recipes, mostly in the form of cream cheese frosted desserts. If you too have a love for either of these…

Sausage Rolls

It’s rare that I put anything savory on this blog. It’s even more rare that I put anything with meat! When I do, it’s because I absolutely love it. As is the case here. These are the grown up version of pigs in a blanket. Puff pastry is used here, instead of a roll of…

Crêpes

Happy Mardi-Gras! This is a festive time of year to over-indulge in food before the fasting season of Lent begins. As an American, when I think of Fat Tuesday (literal translation from the French, Mardi-gras) I think of New Orleans parades and parties. Purple, yellow, green beads being thrown around, endless drinking, and of course,…

Tarte aux Poires (French Pear Tart)

I’ve been saving this recipe for my future cookbook. But then I realized you know what? My whole mission with this blog is to share the best recipes that I know. And this is the best recipe. This is my husband’s favorite dessert on the planet. And one that’s been passed down from his French…

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chai Blondies

If you’re unfamiliar with blondies, a classic American dessert, and a different take on brownies, get the lowdown on what they are and my go-to recipe: Blondies. Essentially, they are similar to chocolate chip cookies but in bar form and with a chewy texture most similar to a brownie. They often do not have chocolate chips…

Chocolate Frosted Brownies

  These brownies. I don’t even have words for them. If I must: Fudge-y Chocolate-y Indulgent Delicious Perfectly sweet Addictive This recipe comes together really quickly, using just one bowl.

Dutch Apple Bread

This Dutch Apple Bread requires three different components, yet even so, remains incredibly easy to create. Mainly, because no electric mixer is required. Music to my ears. The actual bread has a moist and buttery crumb, so really it’s a cake.  And the apple shines with the help of cinnamon and a touch of ginger….

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Pancakes have been my number one favorite breakfast item since the first time I ate them. Age and a more sophisticated palate has not changed this fact. I have however, incorporated some variety into my pancake diet. Expanding beyond the delicious Chocolate Chip Pancakes to gluten free Coconut Flour Pancakes (GF) and Pumpkin Pancakes and now, these delicious…
