Banana Bread (Vegan, whole-wheat)

Banana Bread (Vegan, whole-wheat)

As I write this, I’m fairly sure no one’s ever going to read this. Part of me hopes that I can keep it to myself, and that the problems will go away. That I’ll wake up in the morning, hit delete, post about honey apple ice cream and move on with my day. People have been talking more and more openly about their experiences with depression and anxiety and honestly. I’m so grateful for their stories and for their help in de-stigmatizing these mental disorders… making it ok to go…

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins

Happy Wednesday everyone! I was going to post a delicious fall-y recipe this week, but it’s not ready yet. Instead you get this slightly fall-y recipe in celebration of the first day of fall tomorrow. I don’t know about you, but I plan to make my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies tomorrow, as per tradition. I’m very excited about it (I’m going to update the pictures tomorrow as well!). Today, thought, I’m excited to share this recipe for whole wheat cinnamon raisin english muffins. My dietitian keeps bugging me about eating…

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Bread

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Bread

I went down to Florida on for 4th of July weekend to visit my mom, and while I was there I baked. I baked blueberry bread then I made this raspberry chocolate chip bread. I love chocolate raspberry. Love it. It’s one of my favorite flavors in the world.  I love it more than I love chocolate banana and everyone knows how much I love chocolate banana. This chocolate raspberry bread is the perfect marriage of chocolate and raspberry. It’s super moist due to the brown sugar, and the raspberries bring…

Swirled Whole Wheat Brioche Rolls

Swirled Whole Wheat Brioche Rolls

Honestly, my favorite thing in the world to make now is brioche, ever since I made that raspberry jam swirled brioche a few months ago.I know it’s kind of time consuming but it’s just delicious. Delicious and I think watching the bread churn in the stand mixer for 30 minutes is kind of relaxing. Maybe that’s just me though. But this time I wanted to make this brioche SLIGHTLY healthier (it’s not actually healthy, it’s like 100% butter), so I made whole wheat brioche rolls. These little guys are so…

Blackberry Bagels

Blackberry Bagels

So, Memphis has a lot of donut places, a lot of stand alone donut shops. Back in Michigan, we had that with bagel shops. There was one shop by us that my family basically kept in business, because we were there multiple times a week. When we all moved away it went out of business and now we’re all incredibly sad when we go back home. But I love bagels, so this week, I made some blackberry bagels. This is in honor of blackberry season. Seriously, our farmer’s market is…

Raspberry Jam Brioche

Raspberry Jam Brioche

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s getting warm out and I’m totally ready for berry season. So I bought a bunch of raspberries, made some jam and swirled it into a brioche – a raspberry jam brioche. This brioche is delicious – light, butter, with the sweet raspberry perfectly swirled throughout every bite – making it the perfect breakfast treat for everyone. Also just a heads up, I’ve updated my social links in the sidebar! Plus, I’ve made a cupcakefordinner instagram that’ll be full of process/baking failures/news of new recipes. I swear all…

Bourbon Tagalong Tear-Aparts

Bourbon Tagalong Tear-Aparts

Ali’s back to conclude this week of peanut butter here on cupcakes for dinner. I’m sorry peanut butter is often neglected here, but I hope you peanut butter lovers enjoy the two recipes I have for you. I’ll be honest with you. I am not a huge fan of peanut butter. When I grew up, I was the weird kid who wanted tuna sandwiches instead of the peanut butter and jelly of my peers. The smell of it in my teenage years made me nauseous. The first time I was…

Rah-Rah Rum Raisin Bread with Cookie Streusel

Rah-Rah Rum Raisin Bread with Cookie Streusel

Happy St. Patrick’s day! For part three of the drunken girl scout cookie project I bring you a highly rummy, rum raisin bread, based on the delicious Rah-Rah Raisins cookie. The first batch of these were not nearly rummy enough. I took it to the office for tea time and the boys who clearly need to drink more kept saying “no, it’s fine, I can definitely taste the rum.” So I turned to my trusty boss and constantly drinking friend and they both said “Oh no, this for sure needs more…
