You do.  Yep.  This amazing easy recipe will make you look like a rockstar the morning of, but you actually put it all together the night before.  Coz it needs to soak up all of that lovely cream cheese, eggs, whole milk and maple syrup!  The only thing you need to do is take it out of the fridge.  Really?  Yes really.

I think sitting in my jammies, savoring that second cup of coffee (I must have two!) snuggled up with my sweetie – well that’s the best.  And if you’ve got the whole fam at home, well maybe with that extra time you can enjoy visiting and getting caught up on all the news.

If you are really indulgent, you could go back to bed, but maybe set that alarm?

Although the delightful smells that will come from the kitchen while this amazing cinnamon raisin french toast soufflée is baking might wake you up.

Or your rumbling tummy.

We enjoy our Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Soufflée with lots of maple syrup and a delicious fresh fruit salad.  And a little whipped cream never hurt anyone.  IMHO.  Oh and be sure to use real maple syrup.  You can get amazing quality maple syrup at your local farmer’s market and there will be lots of maple syrup festivals coming soon!

Cinnamon Raisin French Toast Souffle! You can wake up to this easy recipe anytime by doing all the prep the night before. Yummy PERFECTION.

This awesome easy recipe makes alot – probably enough for eight hungry folks, and it fills a 13 X 9 pan.  So eat some now, and then freeze it for next weekend.  Or just eat it all now.

You know up until a few months ago, I always used the lemon pie filling mixes, thinking that I couldn’t possibly find the time, or have the patience to make this delightful recipe.  Boy was I wrong!

This Homemade Lemon Meringue Pie recipe is so easy you will never use a lemon pie filling mix again!Click To Tweet

And the difference in flavour is amazing!  There are lots of great recipes out there too – I also like one that I found in Canadian Living Magazine!

This Homemade Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe is so easy  — you will become a Pie Baking Rock Star!

This Homemade Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe is so easy to make. At Pie Lady Bakes we're all about taking a classic recipes and making it easy for you!

– 1  – 9″ pie shell  – prepared and baked shortcrust pastry

Filling:
– 3 egg yolks
– 1 ½ cups sugar
– 1/3 cup cornstarch plus 1 tbsp.
– 1 ½ cups water
– 3 tbsp. butter
– 2 tsp. lemon peel grated
– 1 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed,about 3 – 4 large lemons

Meringue:
– 3 egg whites
– 6 tbsp. sugar
– 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Juice 3-4 large fresh lemons and put some of the peel aside to make lemon zest.

The first tip to making a lovely creamy lemon meringue pie is that you have to stay with it and keep stirring at the stove!

And the second if not equally important tip is to mix a small amount of the hot filling into the beaten eggs first, and stir rapidly- – the last thing you want are lemony scrambled eggs and have to start all over again.

And that’s it!

Maple Fudge Toffee Bars and Sweet Eileen’s

Maple Fudge Toffee Bars and Sweet Eileen’s

Are these homemade Maple Fudge Toffee Bars candy or cookie bars?

 

 

Well that’s up to you to decide!  An easy no-bake recipe that has a delicious chocolaty toffee base, smothered in creamy maple fudge.  Want some?

A chewy chocolate toffee bar smothered in yummy Maple Fudge! An easy no-bake maple fudge recipe that will disappear right before your eyes! Guaranteed!

 

 

I love this simple maple fudge recipe for so many reasons, but I think the biggest reason, besides the out of this world sweetness, is the fact that I can make it on top of the stove and that’s a keeper for trailer life.  If you’ve read my ABOUT page, you will know that my husband Mark and I love the RV life and spend a large part of the year at our trailer in Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada.

In our family, we call this recipe Sweet Eileen’s, after my Mom, Eileen.  Mom was a sweetheart and loved to try out new recipes, just like I do!  I have a huge book full of recipes clippes from newspapers and magazines, some of them go back to the 1950’s.  I am so grateful to have such a legacy.

Mom’s favorite recipes were squares or cookie bars, including this special Maple Fudge Toffee Bar recipe.

The ingredients are probably in your pantry right now, and all you need is a 8″ square pan.

    Apple Pie Coffee Cake | Love in a Pan!

    Apple Pie Coffee Cake | Love in a Pan!

    An Apple Pie Coffee Cake?  You’ve got to be kidding, right?  Oh no I’m not!

    I do love coffee cake!  All that cinnamon, brown sugar and walnuts dripping down the sides of a yummy richly flavoured cake and slathered thickly with an icing sugar glaze.  When I have friends over for a cup of coffee and a gab and I serve my apple pie coffee cake to them, well you can just feel the love from here!

    apple pie coffee cake is so easy to make - you can have your pie and cake together!

     

    As I write this I’m savouring a big ole slice, just for me, and slightly warmed.  The topping is so rich (think Dutch Apple Pie) and of course my coffee cakes are stuffed here and there with delicious cream cheese!  Oh my goodness, my mouth is sticking together…will keep typing.

    Coffee cake recipes in our family go way back – to my mom and grandma.  My family recipe is already on the blog and enjoyed by thousands – Salted Caramel Coffee Cake is the bomb!

    Ingredients:

    Topping:

    • 4 tbsp. melted butter
    • 1 cup dark brown sugar
    • 1 cup chopped walnuts
    • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    • 4 cups peeled and slice apples (I used Paula Red’s)

    Coffee cake:

    • 3 tsp. baking powder
    • 2/3 cup white sugar
    • 1 ¾ white flour
    • ½ tsp. salt
    • 4 oz. plain cream cheese
    • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
    • 1 cup half and half cream
    • 1 egg
    • ½ tsp. vanilla

    Icing Sugar Glaze

    • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1-2 tbsp. water

    feature-cake-on-plate_pm-edits

     

     

    Instructions:

    Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter well

    Stir in the apples and chopped walnuts and set aside

    In food processor add dry ingredients, baking powder, flour, white sugar, salt, and pulse until blended

    Cut softened cream cheese and butter into chunks and add to food processor and pulse until blended. The mixture will stick together if pressed in your hand.

    Put the mixture from the food processor into a large bowl.  Make a well in the centre and add the cream, vanilla, and egg.  Break the egg yolk and blend slowly, just until everything is moistened.  Like when you are making muffins.

    Preheat the oven to 375 and grease and 8 X 8 square pan.

    Press the cake mixture into the plan

    Add small chunks of cream cheese around the top – I push them in slightly with my finger!

    Spoon on the apple and brown sugar topping (this will sink into the cake as it bakes)

    Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
