First batch had a chemical after taste, but consistency was good. So I reduced baking powder to 1/2 tsp and 2nd batch were very really nice! Put a tsp of nutella in the middle for an extra surprise!-28 Feb 2015

Very simple and quick to make, light and tasty. My young boys think it's a bit like a pancake in a cupcake. I can recommend it for something a bit different.-09 Apr 2014


These muffins are awesome! They are a huge hit with the family every time I make them. They work especially well as mini-muffins.-------Update: I now use this recipe as a base for other muffins, like replace the nutmeg with vanilla and add 1 cup of blueberries. Delish!You can check out my daughter making these for Christmas in this video: Jan 2005

Sweet Potato Pancakes Made With Leftover Mashed Sweet Potatoes

We developed this recipe to use up Thanksgiving leftovers, but these pancakes are good enough that you might consider making a batch of mashed sweet potatoes specifically for the purpose. A combination of sour cream and milk produces a noticeably tangy flavor, which sets off the sweetness of the potatoes well. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and maple syrup are natural partners for the potatoes, and a pinch of salt helps all the flavors shine.

French Butter Croissants

The Spruce / S&C Design Studios

Wow family and friends at brunch with a basket of home-baked, buttery, flaky French croissants. Creating the famous French breakfast pastry is a fun challenge for home bakers who can afford to plan two days ahead. Most of the time is needed for resting the dough, between short intervals of hands-on work. Your patience will be rewarded with a dozen large, freshly-baked croissants just like those from the corner bakery.


  1. Prepare bread. Slice and cube up your 2-day-old bread and place into a large bowl.
  2. Make French Toast Batter. Mix eggs, cream, milk, sugar, syrup, vanilla extract, orange extract and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  3. Fold in bread and peaches. Mix peaches into batter then gently fold bread into mixture with your hands, just until bread is evenly coated.
  4. Chill. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours up to overnight.
  5. Assemble. Evenly divide bread/peach mixture between greased muffin tins, pushing mixture down into the tins as needed. Set aside.
  6. Make streusel. Combining sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter, in a medium bowl. Cut in the butter with pastry cutter, 2 forks, OR (my favorite method) place mixture in food processor and pulse until the mixture is crumbly. Spoon topping evenly over muffins.topping spoon over cubed bread in tins.
  7. Bake. Bake muffins for 25-30 minutes until tops are golden.
  8. Serve. Serve with syrup, cream and garnish with additional peaches.
