J: Erik’s mother makes the most delicious lemon poppyseed muffins, and since I live so far away from them, I don’t get to enjoy them as often as I’d like. Recently I was craving them, and decided that I would do an homage to her muffins in the form of lemon poppyseed scones! I used this recipe from Vanilla Sugar (incidentally that recipe is dynamite in its original form as well) and tweaked it a bit to come up with these wonderful little pastries.

J: For one of my classes this spring, each student is responsible for bringing in breakfast once during the course of the semester. My turn was a couple weeks ago, and while everyone else had been bringing in storebought bagels (clearly none of them had read this post), I figured that I should make something a little more jazzed-up, and I decided on coffee cake muffins.

Okay, folks, this is the last pumpkin post for a while. I’ve been holding out on it, trying to make the pumpkin season last a little bit longer, but as December marches on I decided it was about time to post it and move from pumpkin, cider, and apple pie on to peppermint, hot chocolate, and Christmas cookies. I’m alright with that trade.
That said, this pumpkin bread was amazing, and it made a TON — in fact, we had to use a bread pan, a 9×9(ish) casserole dish/cake pan, and had enough left to make five mini-muffins. Ridiculous, but delicious, and I certainly didn’t mind eating pumpkin bread in various incarnations for the next couple weeks.
If you happen to need ideas for how to eat this once it’s baked, I recommend warm, slathered in cream cheese, and with a mug of hot coffee.
