      Freshly Milled Donut Muffins

      Freshly Milled Donut Muffins

      These muffins were a Sunday morning treat for me growing up.  They are a dessert-type muffin and make the best memories having little hands help roll the muffins in the sugar and cinnamon mixture. The little bit of sugar mess is hands-down worth the memories! We are hooked on the Unsifted remix on this childhood classic!

      As I shared recently on our @unsifted.kc stories, these muffins were called French Breakfast Puffs in my house as a child. They were from a simple half-page in an old cookbook, but they store much more space (and smiles) in my mind.  Anytime my mom would let us make these muffins, there were memories made... and debating between my sisters and myself about which of us got to roll the butter and who got to roll the cinnamon sugar. My boys debate the same thing now in my house.  So many memories were made in the kitchen with my mom and sisters.  This is what is so wonderful about baking and about the kitchen. Each recipe holds memories, smells, laughs, tastes.....a warmth and a smile.  I am so grateful to be able to share this recipe with you in hopes that you too can make such memories with your families and friends.

      Happy Unsifted Baking!

      whole grain baguette

      Quick Baguettes (30 Minutes!)

      This is the easiest bread you'll ever make! Trust me…you can do this!  If you've been intimidated to jump into Unsifted, this is your perfect gateway bread! You don't need a mixer or any special gadgets and it's roughly 30 minutes start to finish

      I use this bread all the time for garlic bread, meatball sandwiches, toasted paninis, a quick dinner bread, and my personal favorite....Italian Bruschetta. After my husband and I got back from Italy, several years ago/pre-kids, he set out to find bruschetta that tasted authentic to what we had in Florence, Tuscany and Rome. This is a close match to our Italy experience.  You have to try it! It's the perfect appetizer for a dinner party, makes a delicious topping for your fresh flour pizza crust, is an easy fresh and light summer lunch, or this week my family had it with fresh flour noodles to curate the full Italian theme!

      Unsifted's whole grain banana bread

      Fresh Flour Banana Bread

      Do you have extra ripe bananas to use?  This whole grain banana bread is so tender, and moist not to mention being packed with fiber, B-Vitamins, Vitamin E, and more!  For a special treat we occasionally add a delicious crumble topping, that is shown in the picture.  We love eating this banana bread while warm because we think it melts in our mouths, but if you let it fully cool it will be more setup and easier to transport if you are gifting the loaf to a friend.
