Good 3.8/5
(15 ratings)

A simple and easy coffee cake, its quick to whip up on a weekend morning. Its not fancy, but sometimes that's not what you need!

I often make this for company, mixing the dry ingredients, and the wet in seperate bowls the night before, and mixing the two together in the morning. A nice breakfast without spending all my time slaving away.

Light & Healthy Apple Hand Pies
Very Good 4.1/5

Ditch the toaster pastry. They're loaded with sugar and fat--and not much else. My hand tarts are full of fruit, and if you make them ahead of time your kids can grab them and go.
