Breakfast Bread

There are two camps in the breakfast bread world. On one side, you have options that serve as vehicles for toppings, like bagels, English muffins, toast and croissants. These unadorned choices can be piled high with everything from lox to peanut butter. The other half seeks to satisfy eaters with a constant sweet tooth. Choices like banana bread, cinnamon rolls, muffins and sticky buns ensure that sugar is available first thing in the morning. F&W's guide has all your breakfast options covered, no matter what your tastes are.

Cardamom Baked French Toast
Rating: Unrated 2
To make this twist on baked French toast, inspired by the Swedish cardamom-infused buns called kardemummabullar, you’ll spread slices of tender, eggy challah with a sugary cardamom butter, then toast them until light gold. Next, the spiced toasts get soaked in a peppercorn-spiked custard that enhances the cardamom flavor even more before it’s topped with melted butter and Swedish pearl sugar and baked.

English Muffins & Crumpets
Sometimes, there's nothing better than toasting an English muffin and letting a sliver of butter slowly melt into those distinctive nooks and crannies.
