We love the holidays for a number of reasons, but towards the top of our list has to be the big family breakfasts that linger throughout the morning…it’s the best feeling to make up a big breakfast and enjoy the food (and a few mugs of hot coffee) with our overnight guests. We put together our list of top breakfast treats for your inspiration – just our favorite sweet breads and rolls to keep things simple and let your hearty, savory recipes shine!

Muffins – maybe the most traditional breakfast bread, our muffin recipes are easy, delicious and add an extra special touch to your morning meal (and they’re a great grab-and-go option if you’re hitting the road early to see family out of town!).

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins – We’ve added our Rodelle Vanillas to these muffins which transports the flavors in this recipe from tempting to tantalizing. These may just be the most enticing muffins you’ve ever eaten.

Gluten-Free Mexican Chocolate Buckwheat Muffins – Buckwheat flour, cinnamon, cayenne and Rodelle’s Organic Baking Cocoa make these muffins warm and spicy, rich an earthy. We love them with our morning coffee (and all day long really).

Lemony Coffee Cake Muffins – Indulge in these light and lemony muffins! Our lemon extract and vanilla are the perfect combination of flavors to enhance these deliciously plump blueberries (frozen berries are great here)!

Vanilla Apple Streusel Muffins – These Vanilla Apple Streusel Cupcakes are so simple to make. Not to mention, they really are the perfect combination of spices to enhance the delicious apple flavor! Great recipe with end-of season apples!

Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins – Decadent, delightful, delicious, and down-right yummy. We have made these with frozen strawberries (thawed and chopped) and they work great!

Coffee Cakes and Breads – We’re big fans of recipes that can be prepped family-style and these breads and coffee cakes are just the ticket!

Strudel with Apples and Cranberries – The challenge of making strudel is overshadowed by absolutely delicious results. We added vanilla bean and extract, and some cranberries to the mix. Nontraditional, yet sensational!

Cranberry Pecan Braided Bread – This Cranberry Pecan Braided Bread is festive and a beautiful spotlight of seasonal flavors. Enjoy it with the vanilla glaze and maybe even a little extra vanilla bean butter!

Pumpkin Spice Streusel Bread – Pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice extract and a homemade streusel topping add to this amazing coffee cake.

Rolls – There’s something so satisfying and warming about rolls – perfectly sized and always tempting.

Vanilla Cinnamon Rolls – Wake up to the divine flavor of cinnamon and vanilla in only 90 minutes. Not only that, but we glazed our rolls to give them an over-the-top gooeyness factor.

Sweet Potato Rolls – Serve these amazing dinner rolls with Rodelle’s Vanilla Bean Butter! Perfect for any occasion!

Vanilla Bean Apple Butter – Slow-cooked apples with sugar, spices and yummy vanilla bean. Serve with scones, toast, crumpets, pork, yogurt, cheddar cheese and crackers, gingerbread, oh … the list is endless!
