Wake up and enjoy the most important meal of the day with over 50 moreish recipes for wholesome morning bakes.
If you’re tired of the same old breakfast routine and fancy tasting something new to give you a little more “get up and go,” try your hand at these nourishing morning munchies. With the rise in popularity of all kinds of baking—from artisan breads and pillowy buns, to fruit-filled muffins and soft, oaty tray bakes—now is the perfect time to switch out your breakfast bowl for a more substantial and satisfying bite. Whatever the start of your typical day, each recipe in this book can be made in advance to suit the morning routine of any baker. If you’re more inclined to wake up and be out of the door in 15 minutes flat, try some energy-boosting nutty Flapjacks or Muesli Bars—already cut into grabbable slices and perfect for anyone on the go. If more time allows, slice and toast some flavorful Banana Bread, pair an Almond Twist bun with a cup of warm coffee, or opt for something savory with a Montreal Bagel filled with soft cheeses, smoked fish, or other tasty treats. And if the morning is all your own, why not take a bit of time to fill your home with the smell of warm bread to feast on straight from the oven. There’s a Barley and Rye Sourdough, a Gluten-Free Cornbread, or a simple yet classic White Bread loaf to fill the gap at breakfast time, and have leftovers for lunch! No longer is creating wonderful, nutritious doughs and chewy, sticky mixtures the complicated feat they were once considered to be, but amongst this collection of delicious bakes, you’ll see that making a fresh and wholesome breakfast is both achievable, and so worth the result.
