8 Breakfast Pastries You Can (and Should) Make at Home

April 24, 2015

Every other Friday, Yossy Arefi from Apt. 2B Baking Co. shares dessert projects that demand a little extra time and effort. Because your weekends should always be sweet.

If you only do one thing this weekend, bake yourself breakfast. 

There is something to be said for a fresh-baked breakfast: A hot-out-of-the-oven crumb cake, sugar-coated doughnut, or fruit-filled hand pie can make your two-day weekend feel like a mini-vacation. Which is why we are 100 percent on the bake-your-breakfast bandwagon. Each one of these desserts is perfect for the lazy morning when you want nothing more than to wake up to light streaming in the windows and the smell of pastries wafting from the kitchen.
