Bread and Pastries to Start Your Day

Bread and Pastries to Start Your Day

For those who often only indulge in bread and pastries on the weekends or in front of the tantalizing coffee store counter, these irresistible morning wake-up call recipes, provided by Martha Stewart, are sure to have you hopping out of bed and into a great mood.

Blueberry Toaster Pastries

Beyond the familiar, airy crust and fruity interior, these sweet treats have very little in common with their grocery story siblings, though they can be just as convenient by preparing and freezing a batch in advance. These toaster pastries are packed with a blueberry filling that’s zesty, and they are drizzled and coated with a basic confectioners’ sugar glaze that will impress by its intense violet coloring alone. The glaze is made possible by ground freeze-dried blueberries and a smattering of sprinkles.

Herb-Cheddar Scones

Adding savory delicacies to your morning routine is always advised with these cheesy scallion-and-dill-flecked beauties, making this a new must-have vehicle for egg sandwiches that elevated a simple scramble into an unforgettable feasting. The buttery dough (that comes together without a mixer) is interfolded with herbs and sharp cheddar and showered before baking to create its crisp tops. For maximum enjoyment, serve with a swirl of butter and slice the dough into squares or wedges.

Biscuit Jelly Roll Pastry with Rhubarb and Raspberries

With this recipe, biscuits get a bold, golden, sweet makeover. Starting with a classic buttermilk-infused dough, rolled into a rectangle that’s blanketed with gorgeous pink filling and folded into thirds. Rather than bubbling in a pan on the stovetop, this jammy rhubarb-raspberry mixture is caramelized on a sheet pan in the oven and finished off with a dusting of sanding sugar to add a sparkly, sweet crunch.

Monkey Bread with Hazelnut-Chocolate Swirl

Monkey Bread is just what a lazy, leisure-filed morning necessitates. In this recipe, yeasted dough is rolled into tiny orbs, assembled in a bundt pan, and rising alongside your self once sipping your morning coffee. This treat’s deep chocolate-hazelnut notes come from generous drizzles of Nutella on the bottom of the pan and layered throughout. Do you prefer to sleep in? Work ahead of time, as this recipe actually benefits from an overnight ferment in the fridge, taking on a more robust flavor. The next day, bring it to room temperature and set it in the oven.

Apricot and Cream Cheese Squares 

This classic brunch favorite is inspired by the cheese-and-fruit danish, but this cheerful tray bake skips the often fussy pastry in favor of the focaccia dough, which requires far less maintenance. As for the plump apricots lining the tops of these savory, sweet squares, it’s preferred that you utilize jarred or canned fruit that have been poached in syrup, allowing their mellow flavor and silky texture to truly takeover.

Streusel Banana Bread

This is a beautiful union of two breakfast loves, coffee cake and banana bread. The nutty cinnamon and brown sugar topping perfects this moist loaf, providing a salty-sweet beat with every bite. This pastry treat is a perfect accompaniment for your pot of morning coffee.
