A refreshing combination of flavors just in time for May. Tiny chunks of fresh strawberries and garden rhubarb perk up this orange-scented, sour cream muffin batter. Topped with streusel, this is an ambrosial 'mini coffeecake' rather than a muffin. These freeze well and can also be baked as a cake instead of muffins. Serve this with a robust morning brew.

These are tender and delicate and bursting with blueberries in every bite. These are really miniature coffee cakes actually. You can make these oversized, or spoon them out as muffin tops but they present, and bake up especially nicely in this version of a mini loaves or ‘baby cake’. Wilton also sells mini-Bundt pans that would work (but result in fewer cakes overall).

A unique and most toothsome dessert mini loaf old-fashioned muffin.This combination of pureed cooked pumpkin (or mellow butternut squash) applesauce, and chopped whole dates and yellow raisins makes for a unique and most toothsome dessert mini loaf, which is especially nice for harvest suppers or Thanksgiving. Few tasters can identify the medley of flavors but the scent of these muffins baking causes a run on the kitchen. For the best ever muffin tins, try www.Lockwood.ca pans available from www.GoldasKitchen.com.

Like a big ol’ oatmeal cookie but in a crusty scone. Coarsely chopped, Swiss milk chocolate is ideal in this recipe, melting into the golden, buttery, caramel-touched crevices of this wonderful scone batter.  Demerara is coarse brown sugar and is gorgeous as a finishing touch, adding sweetness and crunch.

Shortcake by any other name, in any guise. This is so good; no wonder some 2500 people have downloaded this favourite BB recipe. Berries and a coating of Swiss chocolate on a buttery scone, aka rich, buttery shortcake base. This recipe is the bomb which explains why it is downloaded constantly. It has shades of country fair crossed with Black Forest Cake - Nothing but nothing is as fresh, decadent, and easy or crowd-pleasing as this cake.

A Cranberry Extravanganza for Thanksgiving. For a limited time, Three (!) Fabulous recipes including Sweet Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread, Thanksgiving’s Best Cranberry Cream Scones and a BB special, Canned Cranberry Bundt Cake (you know - you have leftover sauce or bought a can too many - here's the perfect cake to take care of business). Cut, paste, print out and bake.....  

Gilding the lily – sure, but why not? A little sweet milk for flavor, some sour cream for additional dairy fat (it’s not a dirty word, shame on you) and some buttermilk for the extra acid and rise it affords. Stone ground cornmeal is best – the rest is like yellow sawdust. Make this in a graniteware pie pan to authenticate Americana corn bread baking or use a 10 inch cast iron skillet (The Lodge, America's best know cast iron cookware makers offer the best cast iron skillets(a square one is another good choice for cornbread). Nowadays The Lodge cast iron classics come pre-seasoned – for the prettiest cornbread ever, check out www.Lodgemfg.com)

Two English inventions (scones and nippy dry mustard such as Coleman's) come together quite  nicely. Don't spare the cheese - measure a bit more and it's fine and don't spare the quality either. Opt for a flavorful, strong orange Cheddar. These scones are lofty, golden-crusted and buttery - pure heaven. Perfect with a good cuppa Breakfast tea or a fine Assam.

Flecks of vanilla and vanilla extract both, enhance these flaky scones. Rolling the scones on sugar, rather than flour, accounts for their flaky pastry taste. Kosher salt is more subtle in taste and is recommended.
