There is nothing that we love more than waking up in our cabin that sits deep in the forest, walking across our cold original hardwood floors to our huge bedroom window that overlooks the sun rising over the lake while the smell of freshly brewed coffee and fresh out of the oven pumpkin scones waft through the house. Unfortunately, that is not our reality. In fact, most mornings we’re scrambling to get out of the door hoping we’re just a mere fifteen minutes late to work after stopping for coffee, rather than our usual thirty minutes, but the weekends? We can get behind home-brewed coffee and a delicious breakfast on a crisp Saturday morning.
Here are some warm, cozy, and hassle-free fall breakfast ideas for those picture-perfect, and every other one in-between, fall mornings.
Just think about it: a hot, crispy pumpkin waffle, butter, real maple syrup.. We’re practically drooling already. And don’t even get us started on the smell of pumpkin and maple syrup. This recipe calls for pantry staples, including Bisquick and canned pumpkin, making it delicious and way easy. Get the recipe here!
The best time of the year to buy apples is during the fall, so admittedly, we look for every reason to cook or bake with apples. These apple strudels are made with puff pastries, and we promise you, they will look, smell and taste like you spent HOURS on them, but this recipe couldn’t be easier. Get the recipe here!
Baked Pumpkin Cream Cheese French Toast
Okay, there are a lot of delicious components here: first, you got the pumpkin, then you got the cream cheese, then you got the french toast. If all of those things combined don’t smell and taste like the perfect fall morning, then we don’t know what to tell you. The best part about this recipe is that everything goes into a baking dish, then into the oven, then on to the table. Get the recipe here!
Pumpkin Spice Latte Banana Bread
Who doesn’t love a thick slice of warm banana bread with a little bit of butter on top? Or smothered in butter, we aren’t here to judge. Aside from some ripe bananas, cream cheese, and instant espresso, this recipe calls for a slew of pantry items. What we love most about this bread is that you can just keep going into the kitchen and getting slice after slice because you’re the adult and no one is going to stop you. Get the recipe here!
We couldn’t just bring up pumpkin scones then not give you a recipe for them! We’re suckers for scones and with it being fall, we love a warm pumpkin scone complete with a maple glaze. Whether you prefer coffee or tea in the mornings (or throughout the day!) these scones are sure to compliment your hot beverage of choice! Get the recipe here!
