Apple Cider Fritters

Apple Cider Fritters | From SugarHero.com

Bless me, readers, for I have sinned. It has been only four days since my last doughnut post, and I have again deep-fried dough for this blog. Forgive me. Forgive me for making these apple cider fritters, so tender on the inside, crisp on the outside, dripping with apple cider glaze and bursting with caramelized…

Hazelnut Orange Chocolate Scones

Hazelnut Scones | SugarHero.com

When I first started thinking about desserts for our Mother’s Day tea party, I knew scones had to be on the menu. Jason and I have done a lot of tea partyin’ in our day—you know, for research purposes—and almost every afternoon tea we’ve attended involves some sort of scone situation. [“The Scone Situation”—good band name, or…

Raspberry, Brie, and Chocolate Puff Pastries

So what’d you have for breakfast? Probably something sensible, right? Oatmeal with flax seeds? Whole grain toast? Scrambled eggs? Or are you one of those egg whites only people? (No offense, but what is that about? I mean, have you tasted yolks? They’re delicious! Give them a try and tell me your egg experience doesn’t…

Pannetone Bread Pudding with Eggnog Crème Anglaise

Merry day-after-Christmas! I hope you all had wonderful ones, if you’re the celebrating type. I myself have been “relaxing” (as much as one can relax with an excitable elf-sized kid running around), eating way too much fudge, and making gingerbread houses, and enjoying other seasonal nonsense. I made these pannetone bread puddings a few weeks…

Doughnut Hole Monster Eyeballs

Don’t look at me like that. Haven’t you ever seen eyeball-shaped doughnut holes arrayed on a fur pelt before? Live a little, darlings. See, what happened was that my doughnut holes were larger than expected after frying. (Story of my doughnut life.) So I decided that they weren’t just doughnut hole eyeballs, they were doughnut…

Nutella Croissant Casserole

You may think you know casseroles. “Sure, sure,” you say. “A little cream of mushroom soup here, a big handful of cheddar cheese there, and, um, aren’t canned green beans supposed to be involved somehow?” No. Well, yes. But also, NO, because: gross. This casserole, my casserole? That I’m sharing today? It contains zero cheese,…

Nutella Crepe Cake

[Pssst, only two and a half days left to win an autographed copy of my book and a candy prize pack! Hop on over to this blog post to find out how to enter. It closes this Friday! Do it!] Yesterday was World Nutella Day! Sure, it might fall just above Festivus on the list…

Doughnut Strawberry Shortcakes

With the Fourth of July coming up, it’s all “red berries this” and “blue berries that” up in my Google reader. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good berry trifle or berry pie as much as the next kid, but this Independence Day I want to do something a little different with my berries….
