Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

Happy Sunday! Today it really feels like fall day perfect for cuddling up with a knit blanket and a  mug filled with your favorite drink! At home, I almost always have a tea in hand, but I love making special beverages because they are so fun to decorate! When I was little, I would pretend to be a barista for family and friends, garnishing Sprite and Coca Cola glasses with lemon wedges and sugar rims. So, Im incredibly EXCITED to announce two new changes to at350degrees: 1) I will be adding polls to my posts so that you can vote on which dessert you would like to see next! AND 2) I am adding a drinks category to my recipes! Expect amazing marshmallow shakes, s’mores hot chocolate, Hoqwarts Butterbeer and more (vote on which drink you want below)! My first drink is the most famous and loved Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte! It has an amazing pumpkin flavor combined with warm cinnamon spices and topped with a mountain of whipped cream–It almost tastes like a pumpkin gingerbread man! In the spirit of the upcoming presidential election, please make sure to vote for the next featured beverage!! (Perhaps I will make either a red or a blue themed dessert based on which candidate wins!) Enjoy!!

Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

It might just be my Polish blood, but my all-time favorite baked treats are streusel/coffee cake desserts! There’s something SO delicious about a scrumptious slice of cinnamon pound cake in the morning; it’s the most fabulous breakfast to start off the day!  Although I prefer tea with my piece, this coffee cake loaf is so irresistibly moist and yummy!! My dad especially loves this nostalgic, tasty dessert because it was his dad’s specialty from Europe! Enjoy!!! It’s delicious!

Recipe: Cinnamon Loaf

***NOTE: To add a layer of streusel crumble on top, simply sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon, brown sugar, and a little flour on the loaf before baking.
