Breakfast is the hardest meal to prepare because we’re usually in a hurry and/or just plain tired. Sugar cereal is usually the go-to food because it’s easy. Well I am here to show you an alternative to that cereal and/or fast junk food for breakfast. And I know you and your family are going to love them. By devoting one day each week to baking you can feed your family well, save money, and control your ingredients by just devoting one day in your week to baking. And you will have ready-made homemade foods on the quick! No matter what your family’s particular diet needs are, a baking day will serve you well and keep you organized!
|muffins, buttermilk biscuits, and pancake prep. ready for the week|
Just one day of hard work will pave the way for nutritious, easy, homemade breakfasts from scratch that normally would take most of the morning. Here’s what I’ve made for the week and how I’ve prepped, prepared, froze, and set my week up for easy success:
My breakfast baking for the entire week (or two) that can be simply paired with nutritious eggs, sausage or bacon included:
2 batches of white sandwich bread made:
- 2 loaves of cinnamon raisin bread
- 1 loaf sandwich bread
- 1 dozen Nutella swirl rolls
Basic buttermilk muffin recipe made three different varieties of muffins:
- Cinnamon and Sugar
- Granola, almond, and dark chocolate with an oatmeal streusel
1 dozen, make-and-freeze, buttermilk biscuits
white sandwich bread
Bakes up two loaves at a time in this recipe. Light crispy crust on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside, this bread is perfect for toast and eggs, you can turn this recipe into cinnamon rolls, and/or raisin bread, too.
Cinnamon Sugar Raisin Swirl Bread
This amazing loaf is made with my basic white bread recipe, cut the dough in
Nutella Swirl Rolls
Using the white sandwich bread recipe I made this Nutella swirl bread using one half to make a regular loaf of bread the other for these rolls.
Basic Muffin Recipe
I made 3 different varieties of muffins with one recipe:
sugar and cinnamon
Make and Freeze Buttermilk Biscuits
Buttermilk biscuits made-up, not baked, and frozen for fluffy biscuits quick! Simply bake frozen biscuits until golden brown. These biscuits are wonderful with some fruit and scrambled eggs, or a for a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit!
Simply prepping my fluffy, thick pancake recipe by keeping the dry ingredients in a airtight container with the wet ingredients on a sticky note, attached to the top lid, makes whipping up pancakes a snap!
Each recipe link will not only take you to the recipe but my baking day tip on how you can either freeze, prep, or create several adaptations of a single recipe!
Enjoy your baking day girls. Embrace being a domesticated Diva; wear your prettiest apron, buy yourself some new baking supplies, and have a wonderful time creating magic in your kitchen!

Jenny you are a true inspiration! These looks so healthy and comforting. I can't wait to get started. I think though, because my family is a lot smaller than yours I could do a baking day every two or three weeks instead of weekly. Thanks for the great ideas x
I just found your blog through Pinterest and I'm so glad I did! I love to cook/bake and I've been looking for another good recipe source. I can't wait to try some of your recipes! 🙂

Thanks Becky! Enjoy the recipes:))
Do u have recipes that work with spelt and/or oat flour?
Jenny Penton says
I don't, but have worked with oat flour in place of AP flour in cookies and love it. I also have several recipes that are gluten-free using GF flours, including oat flour, here —–> http://pinterest.com/plannerperfect/gluten-and-sugar-free/
