• 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…

  • 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…

  • Blood Orange + Berry Tart

    eyedocbakes

    Don’t you love a great citrus season? I’d been wanting to make a bright and wonderful tart, but didn’t have enough berries since it’s a bit too early. Welcome – citrus season! The color of this tart comes out so beautifully, you barely need anything to decorate it at all. I decided to add some candied oranges to enhance it a bit. I also usually love making a shortcrust for tarts, but I wasn’t in the mood to do too much baking in the oven – so I went with a cookie crust. This would be a great dessert to…
