Now that it's October, we've officially woken up our ovens from their long summer slumber. 'Tis the start of the baking season -- we'll be decked out in frilly aprons, head to toe in flour, feeling giddy about using our stand mixers. To inspire our fall baking projects, we're turning to Yossy, who celebrates the season by rolling warm cider donuts in cinnamon sugar and baking spooky cakes. Whether for our weekend brunches, chilly evening dinner parties, or just because, here's what we'll be baking for the next few months:

Cranberry Jelly-Filled Doughnuts (Sufganiyot)


Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Orange Cream Cheese Icing


Apple Cider Donuts


Homemade Halloween Spider Cake


Monkey Bread


Chocolate Babka
