• French Apple Cake – with a twist

    eyedocbakes

    Sometimes you want a simple and quick, not overly sweet coffee cake that feels as cozy as Fall. If you’re in the mood for that, this is your cake! Traditionally made with sugar, I subbed the sugar in the cake with honey. I also used spiced rum instead of regular rum, to give it a fun little kick!  The best part? In an hour, you can be eating this! What you’ll need . . . Apples Flour Baking Powder Salt butter honey  eggs vanilla spiced rum sugar You’ll need one small bowl and your stand mixer! Combine the flour, baking…

  • Grilled Peaches with Brown Butter Streusel

    eyedocbakes

    If you love Fall, but you’re still soaking in some of those summer vibes, this is the easy peasy dessert you should make this week! I was able to get my hands on some end of summer peaches! I wanted regular peaches, but they had white peaches, so why not? This dessert works with either. And you know  that streusel you usually reserve for blueberry muffins, or my carrot cake? I added brown butter to it, and it has this great nutty, buttery cinammony flavor that is amaaaazing! Top with some fresh whipped cream and pomegranate arils/berries, and you’re all…

  • Lemon Meringue Tart

    eyedocbakes

    Could you tell yet that tarts are my favorite dessert? Well, if not, here is another one to prove it! A classic lemon meringue pie…but in a tart… with a sweet shortcrust pastry shell, a tart lemon curd, and a perfectly sweet and toasted meringue. Served cold, this is a fantastic dessert for a hot summer day, bursting with lemon-y freshness. The great thing is you can do so much with the leftover lemon curd too. I like to use it on top of pancakes or waffles for breakfast, fill cupcakes with it, or even just as it’s own dessert…

The strawberries add a little fresh bite to each chocolate-y cookie…

    eyedocbakes

    Let’s continue our international travel through the kitchen! Last week I shared a Norwegian pastry with you guys. In continuing with our travel plans, I bring you Pasteis de Nata! These are yummy Portuguese custard tarts that are dangerously easy to eat, since they’re bite sized and made with an easy homemade puff pastry! I actually have a little bit of history with this dessert! I first tried these about a decade ago when I visited Portugal. At the time, I was definitely not into baking, and so I just enjoyed eating a couple (or 10) of these daily while…

  • Cherry Shortcakes

    eyedocbakes

      You know one of the best things about summer? Stone Fruits! What is a stone fruit? It’s basically any fruit that has a fleshy pulp on the outside, and a single shell, that surrounds a seed, on the inside. So, cherries (!), peaches, plums, etc. I often have a hard time deciding what my favorite baking season is. On the one hand, there’s summer – which gives us alllll the cherries, and berries, and stone fruits, and just everything amazing. Then, there’s Fall, which, I mean, is basically a food blogger’s dream. It’s not too hot outside so you…

    Happy National S’mores Day! These cookies are s’mores IN a cookie! Seriously out of  this world. You might want to double or triple the recipe! The whole fam was asking for more! They’re definitely sweet, definitely gooey, definitely crunchy and caramel-y, and have a little salty kick! What more could you ask for in a cookie?  And let’s talk cookies! I feel like you either grow up in a big cookie household, a cake house, or a house of pastries. We were pastries and cake – which explains my love for fruit tarts and the like! So when it comes…

  • The Best Funfetti Marshmallow Cookies

    eyedocbakes

    What do you get when you already have a party in a cookie, AND you add marshmallows? These cookies. You get these cookies. You guys…these are sooooo good. These are soft and chewy funfetti cookies with an ooey-gooey surprise in the middle. The key to the chewy but flat situation is a little pan banging and a little cornstarch! The cornstarch gives them the soft and tender consistency, and the pan banging flattens them out and keeps the marshmallow at the same level as the cookie, instead of sticking out on top – plus it gives them the cute ripples.…
