Do you have a lemon tree? If you don’t go plant one now! Seriously one of the best investments. Especially here in So Cal when we have sunny weather pretty much year round.

I love being able to go pick a fresh lemon for my morning hot tea or when I feel like whipping up some lemon loaf.

Like I did here in this Blueberry Lemon Loaf.

Guys, I think this is one of my all time top 10 recipes.  The lemon glaze is just drinkable and then the lemon cake. Ugh yes, I am all about it.

So were my sisters. Katherine “Literally I could have eaten the whole cake in one sitting” Lydia “Where is the rest of that cake, why would you take it away from me?!”

Blueberry Lemon Loaf Cake www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

The loaf cake is moist, soft and the juicy blueberries add to every bite. I prefer to keep this cake in the fridge and eat it chilled. Trust me do it. So darn tasty.

My mom even found the loaf cake in the fridge and clearly there were fork marks all over it so she decided to eat some to clean it up so you couldn’t see anymore fork marks.

 

When someone leaves a fork inside the container you know its good because clearly every time you walk past the fridge you need a bite.

Mini Apple Monkey Bread

Easy homemade monkey bread is filled with tons of apples and  cinnamon sugar Mini Apple Monkey Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

I LOVE LOVE LOVE monkey bread, like any excuse to make it I do. I especially love cream cheese stuffed monkey bread, its the bomb! Literally my favorite. I have made it many a times. Last time my nan was here from England  (she will be here Dec 5 for two months woo hoo) on her last day she requested monkey bread, one of my best friends requests it on her birthday each year and friends at work request it for early morning meetings or christmas decorating mornings! Honestly SOOOOO good.

Mini Apple Monkey Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

But naturally with the season I have become a tad bit obsessed with baking with apples, I freaking L_O_V_E cooked apples, like the Miley Cyrus song “And we can’t stop, And we won’t stop” I literally WILL NOT STOP cooking with apples. But really that is a good things right, how does that saying go? An apple a day, keeps the doctor away? 😉

Mini Apple Monkey Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

It was only made sense that I would cook apples in some monkey bread!! I made these about two weeks ago on a beautiful californian autum day, lezzzz be honest here we don’t really have “seasons” her in SO Cal but this day was close to one.

 

Mini Apple Monkey Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

I made the dough and also froze half for later so when I get the craving for cooked apples again I will be able to make these Mini Apple Monkey Bread on the spot!

 

Mini Apple Monkey Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

The dough and apples are baked with a delicious cinnamon sugar kind of thick glaze that I could have drank. Very easily.

 

Mini Apple Monkey Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

 I have this obsession with cookie butter all year round, and then when it’s “fall” I become obsessed with pumpkin. I think that happens with a lot of people though.

 I knew I wanted to swirl chunks of Cookie Butter into Pumpkin Bread but the Cookie Butter glaze was spur of the moment. Any glaze just makes any bread 10X better, well in my book it does. The truth is the Cookie Butter Banana Bread does not need the glaze but hey it makes it better!

Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread

Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com #pumpkin #maple #quickbread #fallbaking

So this one time I made this amazing Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread, my sister and I fell in love with it.

It was so moist, perfectly spiced and full of pumpkin flavor, not too oaty, and the maple glaze.. to die!

Then I went outside to snap a few pics, I tripped and it went everywhere. I also cut myself twice at work that day and the phone lines went down and I got a call for some credit card fraud. It was a great day, until my beloved Oat Flour Pumpkin bread fell all over the floor.

Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com #pumpkin #maple #quickbread #fallbaking

Luckily I had about 2 1/2 slices in the kitchen to take a few snaps but no whole loaf shots and not much gorgeous Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread for me to devour.

I am a clutz. Its a fact. I run into things, I fall over, I spill, I know my balance is not the best. Okay its not good at all. In the past I have dropped baked goods, and it is heartbreaking every time. Luckily I made this, taste it and then went to photograph it. I will be making this again, shortly. I just need a little bit of time, and right now its hard to come by, busy bee is my name!

 

Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com #pumpkin #maple #quickbread #fallbaking

 

The inspiration for this bread was from my oat flour banana bread, it has been one of my most viewed pages and one of my personal favorites. The oat flour is so easy to make, all you literally do is blend oats till they resemble a flour like texture. The oats create a beautiful depth of flavor in the bread.

 

Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com #pumpkin #maple #quickbread #fallbaking

But that’s okay because come Thursday night I will be on a plane headed to London. Whenever we are in London we HAVE to go to Ben’s Cookies. We are those obnoxious people that buy loads of cookies. Everyone else buys one and then there is us…. “Can I have two of those, three of those and let me take 4 of those ones” LOL oops. We’re on holiday so calories don’t count. But when your holiday lasts as long as mine that is probably not the best motto… YOLO

Pineapple Banana Bread www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

Back at home I have been trying to not splurge as much…but then things like this happen and how can I not?

I’ve also been trying to use up alot of my ingredients, insert Pineapple Tidbits from Trader Joes. I had a half open bag I wanted to get rid of so I thought to myself why not throw it in banana bread?! I love how moist and delicious pineapple is in carrot cake. So I added it. And BAM! I loved it. What a wonderful flavor.
