Anytime I see Churros on a menu or pass a churro store, I get overly excited and yell “CHURROS!”. It is a totally weird behavior, but I can’t help myself. I love churros and I also love the word! My churro obsession is kind of strange though because I actually don’t eat churros very often, and had never even tried them until I moved to NYC! I still remember my first real churro – it was from the Doughnut Plant! They don’t make churros anymore, which is a shame, because it was memorably good.

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to make a breakfast based off of churros – Churro Donut Holes, and just to make them even more outrageous I stuffed them with Dulce de Leche!  All in the name of Cinco de Mayo – what a great holiday.

I think I might have spoiled TheBetterHalf with all of the baking I do. Let me explain…we almost always have something for him to bring to work for breakfast. I package up muffins and breads and donuts in packs of two and pop them in the freezer so that he can grab one each morning on his way out the door. However I haven’t been baking as much recently and was out of town last weekend, so our frozen baked good reserves are totally depleted! He was actually complaining (jokingly, of course) that he had nothing to bring for breakfast!! Spoiled. So spoiled. I kindly reminded him that there are markets / bodegas / coffee shops on nearly every corner in NYC and that they all have a lovely selection of breakfast items. But it did lead me to make some muffins this past weekend to keep him happy – Orange Chocolate Chip Yogurt Muffins! And I’m really not complaining – I love having someone enjoy my baked goods! …

Two Guinness posts in a row…it must mean that St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! Or that Guinness was on sale at the market. Or both :) TheBetterHalf and I are both Irish and we went to Notre Dame, so we are big fans of St. Patrick’s Day. What’s not to love about a holiday that allows you to have both Guinness and Baileys for breakfast?

These Guinness Chocolate Donuts are similar to the donuts I made last year, but I changed up the icing to a Baileys chocolate ganache icing. It is SO good!!

We have been absolutely obsessed with this Orange Yogurt Cake for the past few weeks. I seriously can’t stop making (and eating) it. The texture is just so amazing – super moist from a full cup of Greek yogurt. And then to make it even better, an orange simple syrup is poured over the warm cake. So good! I made a lime version of this the other day, and I can’t wait to try a lemon version too. This is definitely my current go-to breakfast / snack / dessert recipe!
