I’m thrilled that Baked Sunday Mornings has gone back in time to Baked: New Frontiers. I feel like I’ve said this already… maybe more than once?… but it’s no less true. One of my favorite recipes (that I’ve tried so far) from Baked NF are the banana espresso muffins, so I was pretty certain these banana cupcakes would be at least as delicious. I was right….
We finished Baked Occasions two Sundays ago, and have moved on to what might be my favorite cookbook by Matt & Renato: Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. I’ve made a lot of the recipes from this cookbook, but never this weekend’s assignment: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread.
In my humble opinion, one of the best things about Fall is pumpkin chocolate chip bread. I can’t stand pumpkin spice lattes, and I don’t really like pumpkin cookies because they’re weirdly squishy, but those caveats aside, I am one of those annoying people who is all about pumpkin as soon as the first hint of fall arrives. Since it’s almost October but close to 80 degrees outside this weekend, I guess it’s a good thing I feel that way about pumpkin….
The banana espresso chocolate chip muffins from Baked: New Frontiers are delicious and you should make them straightaway. They are better than any banana bread, and they make a fantastic breakfast or coffee/tea-time/midnight snack. I’ve gone way past my limit of three recipes from Baked, but that’s okay because more people need to know how incredible every single recipe they publish is.
