something I can bake in an hour?

Greetings -

I'd like to have something freshly baked for breakfast at 7:00.

Has anyone recipe suggestions that can be prepared (or pulled out of the fridge) and baked in short order that doesn't require that I get up much earlier than 6:00?

Thanks kindly.

  1. We make these on weekend mornings:

    Orange-Raisin Muffins

    1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
    1-Tbsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 egg, beaten
    zest from 1 medium orange
    juice from 1 medium orange (or 1/4 cup orange juice)
    1/2 cup milk
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    3/4 cup raisins (I use golden raisins)

    Preheat oven to 400 F.

    Mix dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar).

    Mix wet ingredients in another bowl (egg, orange zest, orange juice,
    milk, oil). Combine ingredients, stir until just mixed, don't beat.

    Fold in raisins. Spoon into 12 standard muffin cups. Fill cup each about
    half full (about 2 Tbsp each).

    Bake 17-22 minutes at 400 F.

    For more orange flavor, substitute 1/4 cup of orange juice concentrate
    (from frozen - undiluted) for the orange juice above.

    1. Corn bread/muffins is one of my faves, especially with things like bacon and/or cheddar and/or jalapenos.

      Also, I really dig this caramel french toast recipe, which is something you can just pop into the oven in the morning.

      1. Really any kind of muffins or scones or perhaps even cinnamon buns - you can even mix the wet & the dry muffin ingredients the night before and then combine and bake to make it even faster.

        A french toast bake requires overnight soaking and takes 40 min to bake.

        Or some kind of frittata.
