Cinnamon Sugar Popovers

I am a fan of baking pans. Not just your basic cake pans, but pans to help expand your baking adventures. Two pans I highly recommend are a doughnut pan and a popover pan. If you’ve followed me long enough you know I use both pans on a regular basis and the recipes I use them for are not hard at all. If you haven’t already invested in these pans, I suggest you run out to get them sooner than later!…

Chocolate Espresso Doughnuts

February is such a great month. We celebrate Black History this month, love and chocolate. To kick off this month filled with great celebrations, I am sharing a recipe that I am certain will be on regular rotation not just during the month we celebrate chocolate, but all year long.   You’ll need that doughnut pan I keep talking about on Instagram. I promise you it’s worth the investment y’all. Make this recipe over the weekend in preparation for Valentine’s Day…

Banana Nut Overnight Oats

Hey y’all! I hope your New Year is off to a great start.  So far so good for me. I’m expecting great things this year and plan to get both old and maybe a few new goals  accomplished.  The one thing I’m focusing on this year is getting my cookbook, Let’s Have Brunch, completed.   I know we all have goals each year.  One major change most people make during this time of year is to improve their eating habits…

Sweet Potato Doughnuts

By now we all have been sufficiently inundated with all things pumpkin. I will admit I enjoy my pumpkin spice lattes and have baked many pumpkin recipes here on Jem of the South. However, growing up in the south sweet potato was queen and in my opinion it still is. Exhibit 1, these sweet potato doughnuts. They are some of the most flavorful and moist doughnuts you will ever eat.  I made a version of these doughnuts five year ago and…

Pumpkin Spice Granola

I’m sure by now you all know how much I love homemade granola. Check out my other granola recipe here and stay tuned for at least one or maybe two granola recipes in my brunch cookbook.   I really love making homemade granola because you get to control the ingredients and you can also have fun coming up with different flavor combinations like this pumpkin spice granola.  Rest assured you are going to want to keep a batch of this granola…

Blueberries and Cream Scones

A few years ago I had a slight obsession with baking scones. Who am I kidding? I still do. I have had my eyes on a version that included cream instead of buttermilk and butter, but kept putting off making the recipe. After my friend Linda gave me those freshly picked blueberries a few weeks ago, I knew I was finally going to make these cream scones with those berries. I was really pleased with how these turned out and…

Blueberry Muffin Cake

I’m a huge fan of blueberries or any berry if I’m really honest. My mom loves blueberries too and she visited last week so I wanted to make something for her that I knew she’d really like.  I ran across this blueberry muffin cake recipe a few weeks ago and I kept it tucked away until my mom came into town.  I made this cake the day before my mom arrived and we enjoyed it for breakfast the next day.…

Cinnamon Sugar Baked Doughnuts

Confession time. If I had to pick my top 2 favorite desserts, I’d have to pick ice cream and doughnuts. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a dessert maker so I like almost every dessert, but these two desserts I could eat weekly if I allowed myself too. As you can guess, doughnuts take a lot of prep time, actually a lot of time in general to make. However, the baked doughnut takes much less time to make because you cut…

Spinach Mushroom Frittata

If you do a search on Jem of the South you will find two recipes for Spinach Mushroom Frittata. No, you’re not going crazy and neither am I. I love making eggs for brunch and for some reason I seem to be stuck on the spinach/mushroom version of this dish. When deciding to make another frittata, I found a recipe by my favorite food goddess, Barefoot Conetessa, and put my own spin on it. I’ve made this frittata several times…

Chocolate Popovers

February is coming to a close and this year we actually have an extra day to celebrate National Chocolate Month! I figured with one extra day this year, I had to do another chocolate recipe.  When I’m deciding what new recipes I want to put on the site, I typically come up with them that day or mull over the concept for weeks. That’s pretty much what happened with this chocolate popover recipe. I knew at the beginning of the…
