Wow. What a gem. 100 Morning Treats by Sarah Kieffer does not disappoint and yes you read that right 100 recipes and actually more when you read the extras toward the end. There are the classics that are my favorites such as Kouignettes, Almond cream, Lemon curd, and Dutch babies. I was looking for crepes and ebelskivers so I wouldn't say it's a Baking Breakfast Bible but it is close. It is a treat for the baker and I can see this as a treasured family cookbook since so many of these treats are indeed special occasion.

The book is beautifully photographed with some helpful step-by-step construction photos. There could have been more but I did observe that the recipes that needed the guidance photos were there nevertheless I still would have appreciated more photos since some of these recipes are advanced such as Kouignettes.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher Chronicle Books for the opportunity to read 100 Morning Treats by Sarah Kieffer.

What a great book! With beautiful photographs accompanying the recipes, and an informative first chapter with cooking tips and tricks, this is a cookbook that will work for beginner cooks and more advanced cooks alike. With chapter devoted to muffins, danishes, bread doughs, and more, there are recipes for everyone.

I can't wait to try some of these recipes! Thank you Netgalley and Chronicle Books for the opportunity to read and review this ARC!

This cookbook is filled with recipes for delicious-looking morning food including twists on foods like cake and pretzels that you wouldn't normally associate with breakfast. As a breakfast lover (it's the best meal of the day!), I can't wait to try many of these yummy recipes including Caramel Apple Muffins, Strawberry Knots, Cruffins, and Cheesy Croissant Casserole. This is a pastry and breakfast lover's dream.

100 Morning Treats is more of a nod to all things pastry l. Many of the recipes are decadent and the pictures are beautiful. I would honestly not make the majority of these as a breakfast but I would serve nanyang as a desert or as a brunt treat offering. The author is clearly in love with baking and creating these delicious desserts. I think the book is well out together and well organized. This would make a great gift for any baker!

Was this review helpful?

As someone who prefers breakfast above all other meals I feel like this was going to be a win for me before I ever turned a page. It is however, all that I hoped it would be and more. I love to make desserts that I can serve under the guise of “breakfast food” so any kind of pastry is an automatic yes for me.

The author is very passionate about this book and it transfers into every page. Every recipe is well thought out and has a good organized layout making it easy to use while baking. The recipes range from healthy items like “Whole Wheat Yogurt Muffins” to less healthy options like “Tiramisu Bundt Cake” so there is something for everyone. There is a recipe for any pastry you have ever wanted and even some that you’ve never heard of. Something that I appreciate when I get a book like this is that there are some classic recipes like Blueberry muffins, something I’ve made a ton of items before but this one is just a little different, but then there are recipes that are so creative and inventive that I would have never even thought to make them.

Each recipe has a corresponding photo and refreshingly the food looks like normal food that anyone can make. Sure there is some nicely twisted dough and possibly unattainable cinnamon rolls, but for the most part I expect that the recipes I make will actually look like the picture beside it. I would say this book is for an experienced cook, a bit too complex for a beginner. Overall an amazing addition to any cookbook library.


**I will post my review to Goodreads on the date of publication**

Don't open this book if you're hungry and don't have all the normal 'staple' ingredients. Don't be like me or you'll be drooling all over the gorgeous pictures and delicious recipes contained within.

Very user-friendly format -especially for those who are 'baby bakers' such as myself. I loved the back where the author gives some song ideas and a section with all the 'prep' recipes that a main recipe may call for or incorporate.

I cannot wait to make some of these - Buttermilk is a common staple I am going to have to add to my kitchen as most call for it (heads up for those who don't usually work with it).

All of Sarah Kieffer's cookbooks are amazing, and 100 Morning Treats is no exception! It contains so many amazing recipes along with beautiful pictures. There is also a great variety of recipes to choose from such as muffins, rolls, doughnuts, scones, biscuits, and both sweet and savory breakfast breads. I've tried the almond poppy seed and happy birthday muffins, buttermilk cinnamon rolls, and banana fritters so far. Everything was delicious, and I can't wait to eventually try them all!

I've read both of Sarah Kieffer's previous cookbooks and I really like the layouts and varying levels of difficulties of the recipes. There's a base recipe section, one for tools, even oven temperatures. I've found the recipes very straightforward to follow in her previous cookbooks and this one seems no different. I'm particularly excited to try the Cream-Filled Danish, House Pancakes and Mini Dutch Babies. And the book is just very pretty, which is always nice!

Thank you to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for the eARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first time reading a cookbook by Sarah Kieffer; definitely will go in search of her others! Beautifully laid out recipes, are both inviting and exciting. Normally certain types of baked goods (see laminated and/or yeasted pastries) intimidate me, but these recipes feel accessible to this home baker in just the right way. Did I mention how lovely the book is? Love the photos, descriptions, and well placed quotes. Am confident there will be happy faces both at home and my office as I work my way through 100 Morning Treats!

Many thanks to NetGalley, Chronicle Books, and the author for the opportunity to review this ARC.

A fabulous and beautiful cookbook filled with morning treats that anyone and everyone will love.

Sarah Kieffer not only put together a wonderful cookbook of morning delights, but she also included photos of the completed recipes and photos of how to make the more advanced recipes. She also includes, in each recipe, the imperial and metric measurements, so there is no googling of how many ounces in a cup and so forth.

There is a huge selection of choices to make. From Caramel Apple Muffins to Crullers and Doughnuts. There is a section at the back filled with recipes on the different creams and toppings to make for the recipes, as well as a few drink options. Another section is recipes for different types of dough, such as brioche or buttermilk breads.

With the photos, the tips, and the notes she gives in each recipe, the recipes are easy to follow for beginners to novices. I think this would be an outstanding cookbook to have on your shelf. Definitely tons of recipes I need to try!

You know when you eat something heavenly and you make those deep guttural groans that are borderline obscene?! So far- I’ve done that 4 times in the last week. Every recipe we’ve made so far has been absolutely killer and the second this book is available I am adding it to my library. It’s not just pretty, it’s one of those keeper classics that you pass down to your kids and it is full of notes and stains and sticky pages. THAT is good this set of recipes are. We started with the sour cream choc chip bread. We are the entire loaf in 2 days and I’m not ashamed of it. It reminded me of those delicious sour cream cheesecakes that were really popular in the mid-90s at every person’s summer bbqs and pool parties. It was easy to make and nostalgic to eat. I would love to say that I will make it for gift loafs some day, but let’s be honest, I will eat them all. Next we made the blueberry muffins. I knew they would be magical as I grated fresh nutmeg into the sugar for the topping. It’s the little details that really make all the recipes extra special. So far the muffins have held up really well in the freezer and I’ve been popping them into my kiddo’s lunch box. He’s 8 and the pickiest ever so this recipe alone sparks triumph in that he eats them and says they’re amazing. He does not eat however, the pb granola bark. Because he doesn’t know it exists. And he never will unless he finds my secret stash that is above the refrigerator. I made it a few days ago and while my skill, or lack there of I should say, made me mess up the recipe a little, the results are still really friggin’ good and this stash will also be hidden in plain sight from my husband. It’s really reallllllly good. Last we have used the technique and some ingredients for the cinnamon twists to make some quick donuts (I cheated and used pre-made dough because instant cart gave me 6 rounds of crescent roll dough for some ungodly reason), and boy were they fun and delicious. Obviously the actual dough will make it ten-fold better, but showing my son the step by step photos really was handy and the instructions were easy for him. We love this book!

Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for this advanced copy in exchange for my unbiased review.

This cookbook is a carb lovers dream! And I am definitely a carb lover. I have so many recipes I want to make (Banana fritters, caramel apple muffins, and cinnamon twists just to name a few). This cookbook is laid out well with the recipes divided into sections:
1. Muffins/scones and quick breads
2. Coffee cakes and bundt cakes
3. Sweet yeasted and fried treats
4. Pastries
5. The weekend
6. Base doughs and breads
7. Extras
Every recipe is easy to read and has an accompanying picture that will make you immediately hungry.

100 Morning Treats by Sarah Kieffer is a beautiful cookbook full of recipes of every type of breakfast bread you can think of from blueberry muffins to breads to her original recipe for a cruffin; a cross between a croissant and a muffin.

This book has something for every baker from simpler recipes like banana bread to way more complex laminated dough recipes such as croissants with lots of variety in between. I cannot want to try her blueberry muffin recipe and the white chocolate apricot scone recipe, among others. She also offers guidance at the beginning on what tools you need and tips for baking success with her cookbook and baking in general. Every recipe seems to have a full color photo with it.

I’d buy this book for myself or anyone in my life who loves to bake.

The book is broken into some base recipes with modifications and pairings throughout. The book covers how to make sweet and savory bakes and has beautiful pictures. The recipes seem approachable and like things I'm interested in trying.

Overall a nice find.

Beautifully photographed with easy to make recipes, baking tips and ingredients that are simple to find. This book has something for every type of baker – should you be just starting out or a little more advanced. I am looking forwarding to baking some Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Bread, a Giant Carrot Cake Cinnamon Roll and Cruffins!

I will definitely be ordering this book in hardcover for my shelf!

One of my goals every year is to become a morning person. And I loved hearing Sarah’s journey tied to baking encouraging her to become just that. One of my favorite quotes in this book was “everything was new, everything was old , and I was never alone” when connecting with recipes to start her mornings and I hope that’s something I can tie to my daily morning routines now. Instead of wanting to pull the covers over my head for more rest, I think some of these recipes will be perfect for jumpstarting the day doing just that. Some recipes called for more steps than I have time for in my mornings, but maybe I’ll be inspired to savor and take more times for a special morning treat.

So far I’ve tried out the granola recipe and it was a huge hit! I didn’t add chocolate chips just because I was using what was already in my pantry, but the base layer for the recipe was a hit at my house! Can’t wait to try some of the breads and have a “coffee house bakery at home.”

Sarah Kieffer is one of my favorite cookbook authors and bloggers! I first discovered her through an advanced copy of her 100 Cookies book and fell in love with her recipes. I have since added all three of her cookbooks to my collection and they never disappoint. This book will be an amazing 4th addition to the collection!
This book has any kind of breakfast treat your heart desires and is well balanced with different flavors, textures, tastes and variety of baked goods. I love that the recipes even the more challenging ones are well written, easy to follow and have reliable results. I'm so excited to try my hand at the orange rolls, any of the bundt cakes, her new banana bread recipe and the entire bread section.
Highly recommend if you enjoy baking and are looking for a book that will suit the majority of your breakfast food desires.

This is a collection of a 100 great morning treats. It's a collection of delicious treats, all of which I want to bake immediately. The different breads all seem like they would be delicious and the recipes are based on some basic starter recipes making all of these easier to get started.

Was this review helpful?

I really enjoy baking and have found it hard to find recipes for the sorts of breakfast and pastry goods found in this book. There are plenty of pictures to go along with most of the recipes, which is always a plus. The recipes all seemed super yummy and they didn't seem very excessive in terms of asking people to do more than what is necessary. The biggest thing I noticed is the sheer volume of dairy used in these recipes. Most of these recipes call for the use of buttermilk and sour cream which seems very heavy and dairy intense and it's not clear why. I am familiar with what using these ingredients generally does when added to baked goods but adding both to all these recipes seems a bit much especially when dairy is so expensive. If you're lactose intolerant or trying to limit your fat intake these recipes aren't for you. Overall, I liked this book and will for sure check out the physical book when it's available.

What a well-organized cookbook! I love that there are base recipes used for multiple individual recipes like for breads. They seem very accessible. I also am glad to see some savory items instead of just sweets. My husband isn't a fan of sweets, so I have to diversify.

As a previous fan of Sarah Kieffer’s other baking books, picking up this new installment was a no brainer. This book filled with morning treats revisits some of her older recipes, puts a new spin on kitchen classics and shares imaginative and delicious new recipes.

As soon as I saw the title of this cookbook I knew it was for me! Who doesn't love breakfast treats? I made several of the recipes in this book for my family and they all turned out delicious. Our favorite was the Chocolate Hazelnut Crumb Cake on page 88. So good!!

One thing I really liked is that there is a photo to go with each recipe. It makes it much easier to understand what to expect from the final product if there are pictures to illustrate what it looks like or any unusual/complicated steps.

Was this review helpful?

I found this book to have many great ideas and recipes. However, I think that it is more for an experienced or advanced baker because I found the receipts to be quite involved, time-consuming or require fancy equipment. I can only dream of being good enough to pull off these recipes, but an avid or advanced baker this is a good addition to the recipe book collection.

This book is chock full of delicious looking treats and their recipes. I don't think this is a single recipe that I wouldn't be interested in trying. Recipes range from simple to moderate. For unusual steps, there are photos to illustrate what the baker will be doing. Recipe measurements are in volume (cups, tablespoons, etc) and weight (grams). Most kitchen scales will measure in grams. Also baking instructions are provided in degrees F and C.

I think this book will make everyone want to become a baker. And every baker will find many recipes that they want to try.

I received an advance reader copy of this book. This is my honest review.

I love all breakfast foods and every recipe in here looks delicious. I will be sure to be trying quite a few recipes.

My only criticism is thst the majority of the recipes include items I don’t typically have on hand: triple sec, butter milk, rum, brandy, creme fresh, so will have to make a special trip for the necessary ingredients.

100 Morning Treats by Sarah Kieffer wasn’t anything new for baked goods, but still had a nice assortment of different treats. The pictures were average, and I do feel, better photography would make this book much better. We do eat with our eyes after all.

The book has sections on General Baking Advice and A Few Important Notes. At the end of the book, the author includes a list of Morning Tunes to Bake Too and a Conversion Chart. Each Chapter starts with some type of food quote from a book which I thought was a nice touch. Each recipe includes a blurb about the recipe, amount made, ingredients and instructions.

The recipe sections include (with a sample of one of the recipes):

1. Muffins, Scones, and Quick Breads - Banana Bread Scones with Rum Icing

2. Coffee Cakes and Bundt Cakes - Chocolate Hazelnut Crumb Cake

3. Sweet Yeasted and Fried Treats - Orange Buns

4. Laminated Pastries - Raspberry Hazelnut Danish Bread

5. The Weekend - Peanut Butter Granola Bark

6. Base Doughs and Breads - Sweet Dough

7. The extra section includes fruit flavored syrup, pastry cream, streusel, etc.

In trying to decide which recipe to make for this review, it did seem as if some of the recipes were a bit more involved than I was wanting to invest in. Having said that, I did make the Simple Citrus Breakfast Cake which was awesome and even more awesome with the lime juice glaze I put on it. This recipe directions were clear and easy to follow which is one of the reason I chose it.

I have to preface this by saying that I love Sarah Kieffer's cookbooks and own all of them, and I already had this pre-ordered when I saw that it was available on Netgalley. With that being said, Sarah has absolutely knocked it out of the park with this one. Almost any thing that you could conceivably think of that you would want to bake for breakfast (or at least that I could think of to bake for breakfast) Sarah has in this book, and everything looks delicious. Since I read this as an ARC I haven't baked anything from it yet, but everything that I have baked from her previous books has turned out beautifully, so I am anticipating the same from this book.

No pun intended, this is a "treat!" A delectable assortment of fairly easy to make breads, muffins, cakes and more. I've read through the book twice, marking my favorite recipes (which is almost all of them), and have already planned the ingredients I need to get at the store this weekend in order to make the Southwest Turkey Breakfast sandwiches, apple cider crullers & giant carrot cake cinnamon roll (the latter which I expect to be my personal favorite). Very much enjoyed this no-nonsense, relatively easy cookbook. I am a fan and can't wait to continue going back to this one in the future!

Was this review helpful?

I received a netgalley review copy, the opinions are my own though.

This book appealed to me for many reasons. The biggest being brunch food of any kind is amazing, and there is never a wrong time to eat brunch. The second reason is baking is a lovely pastime.
I read through all the recipes, and had a hard time narrowing down which to make first because everything sounded amazing. I started making a grocery list – first round picks for me were apricot white chocolate scones, Double chocolate banana muffins, ginger orange carrot bread, and pear bundt cake.

I started with the apricot white chocolate scones. And they turned out perfect! Quite possible the easiest scone recipe I’ve ever made. I made them yesterday on my day off and I’ll be making more this weekend. I kinda want to try keeping the scone base the same and swapping out the apricots for dried strawberries and the white chocolate for dark chocolate. This was a solid recipe, easy to follow and yielded great results- and I’ll definitely be making these again. (Also, I’d never heard of the double sheet pan trick, helped a lot)
Next up I’ll making the ginger orange carrot bread and the peanut butter granola bark. I’ve also got my eye on trying some of the more complicated recipes such as the almond croissants. I’d highly recommend this book. It was easy to follow, my scones were wonderful and who doesn’t love brunch?!

My only small complaint would be that some of the recipes such as almond crossiants call for a dough recipe that you don’t find until later in the book. I’d rather work my way through the more complicated dough, and then see what you can do with said dough, then seeing what can be done but then having to go look up the other dough recipe further back . But that’s just me.

100 Morning Treats - With Muffins, Rolls, Biscuits, Sweet and Savory Breakfast Breads, and More by Sarah Kieffer has it all from sweet right through to savory. Just browsing this book made me long for breakfast and one of these treats.
The Cinnamon Scones were pure genius with the premade cinnamon butter that was incorporated into this scone. The Ginger Orange Carrot Bread was moist and tangy, the perfect bite with a steaming cup of coffee. (I reviewed an advance reader copy and all opinions are my own.) This book will certainly have a place on my shelf and in my breakfast rotation.

This newest book by Sarah Kieffer focuses on morning goodies with a nice range of both savory and sweet. I appreciate her excellent photos, descriptions, and helpful notes. I know I will be enjoying many of this recipes. Thank you so much for allowing me to preview this fabulous cookbook. I am a huge fan and have made several recipes from Sarah's previous books and have never been disappointed.

Sarah found the sweet spot of adding personal stories and tips to her recipies. Being a baker myself, I found many of her tips useful and selfishly wanted yummy. Filled with georgous pictures to inspire bakers of any level. I'm off to breakfast baking. yumm.

100 Morning Treats
By: Sarah Kieffer
Pub Date: May 9, 2023

This one is for the breakfast-eating foodies!
Packed full of delicious recipes, this cookbook will make your mouth water. It covers everything from muffins and scones, to laminated pastries and breads.
Some that really stood out to me were:
- Tiramisu Bundt Cake
- Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls
- Chocolate Pudding Bundt Cake
- Ham and Cheese Sliders

The pictures were high quality and it was clear to see what recipe they were referring to. The directions were relatively easy to follow - if not a little too long at times. I can definitely see myself picking up a physical copy of the cookbook!

Thank you NetGalley and Chronicle Books for this eARC in exchange for my honest review!

Sarah Kieffer has done it again! 100 Cookies is my go-to cookbook for cookies and any type of celebration. The recipes in 100 Morning Treats do not disappoint. The photography is absolutely stunning and Sarah manages to make even complex recipes accessible. I cannot wait to work (and eat!) my way through all of these delicious treats!

Thank you to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for an advanced copy of this book.

100 Morning Treats
Author: Sarah Kieffer
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Having already purchased 100 Cookies, when I saw that Sarah Kieffer was coming out with another baking book I was super excited! 100 Morning Treats definitely doesn't disappoint - all of the recipes sound delicious and are accompanied by beautiful photos that really showcase the food nicely. I have already made the Blueberry Muffins which were really simple to make and really tasty! I can't wait to try out more of the recipes like the Cardamom Bundt Cake with Coffee Glaze and the Popovers with Fig Butter.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves to bake and wants some great recipes with fun flavor combinations!

These baked goods are beautiful and delicious, and would be perfect for special occasions. But they are not simple recipes just a throw together in the morning there are many ingredients you need to acquire before baking any of these things. I would use this for maybe breakfast on a Sunday morning every once in a while, or if I was just in the mood to bake, but for something fast and easy I wouldn’t use this. However, the recipes in this book look absolutely delicious and I plan to make a few.

4 stars for a fun recipe book that gives me more reason to enjoy sweet treats for brekkie!

This was a fun collection of recipes that make breakfast FUN~ I will take any excuse to have dessert for breakfast, I'm just sayin'. These breakfast recipes look delicious and sure to satisfy any sweet tooth. I really liked that some recipes gave things that I normally wouldn't associate with breakfast a fun spin.

Thanks to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for providing a digital ARC for review.

Thank you NetGalley, the author, and the publisher for the opportunity to read and give an honest review of this book.

I own Sarah Kieffer’s book, Baking for the Holidays and love it. So, I was looking forward to reading and reviewing her latest book.

I was not disappointed. Sarah’s recipes are clear and concise. Each one
has a photo with it that makes your mouth water. The book leaves me wanting
to make each and every recipe.

The introduction does not waste a lot of time on over-explaining baking terms and techniques. It gives you just enough tips so that you are excited to get into baking.

I especially liked the section on laminating dough. That is something I haven’t tried yet, but I would certainly like to try it. She has organized all of her various dough recipes into one section at the back of the book, making it very convenient. The “extras” section, which she includes, will certainly take your baking to the next level. You may even have people (that taste your baked treats) ask you which bakery they came from!

After reading this ARC, I know I will need to purchase this book and recommend it to friends that enjoy baking.

I seldom see a cookbook filled with photos, but this one has an almost 1:1 recipe to photo correlation. Almost. It’s so close that I am impressed.

Add to this a cookbook filled with recipes that I find worthy of baking. Usually, if a cookbook has even appetizing recipes filling even half of the book, I consider it successful. This cookbook, though…wow. Page after page after page of quality recipes. I want to start at the beginning and just start cooking, one after the other.

This is a must buy.

This is a beautifully illustrated collection of morning treats. Clear and concise with metric and imperial measurements, it has easy to follow recipes. The wide variety makes it easy to vary them up for any breakfast / brunch occasion. There are many that would work in lunch and treat scenarios. Reading the recipes and looking at the pictures does make one want to check the pantry and make out a grocery list asap.
This would make a great gift for a new cook.
I requested and received a NetGalley ARC to peruse gratis and offer my opinion in the same.

My favorite meal is breakfast. Rather in the morning, lunch, or for dinner, breakfast is what I love. I’m also a sweets fan. So, when I first heard of, 100 MORNING TREATS: with Muffins, Rolls, Biscuits, Breakfast Breads, and More, I knew I had to have this book!

Each chapter of, Sarah Kieffer’s book, starts with a quote from a classic author, and each page contains another amazing breakfast treat. Muffin, Scones, Breads, Cakes, Pastries, and so much more, are represented, in mouth watering glory.

100 MORNING TREATS will have a permanent place on my kitchen shelf.

Giant Cinnamon Roll & Birthday Cake Muffins! Need I say more, Sarah's recipes have the classics and also some fun new whimsical treats. User friendly recipe comes with no fuss ingredients and both weighted and scooped measurements (cups,spoons,etc). The images are beautiful ans instructions easy to follow. A great addition to any kitchen library. I am looking forward to trying more weekend recipes soon. Thank you so much for letting me enjoy this treat in advance.

The recipe pictures were great along with the photos showing how to fold dough, distribute butter,etc… was a nice touch as well.

100 Morning Treats is a beautiful cookbook suited for amateur bakers and home chefs alike. With clear, easy to follow instructions and beautiful photographs, this is exactly the type of book that will get lots of use in any setting. As a baker myself, I personally attempted several of the recipes included, and my family and I loved everything I tried: the Cinnamon Roll Pull-Apart Bread was sweet but not overpowering; the Apple Cider Crullers reminded me of my family's favorite local orchard's apple cider donuts; and my toddler would be happy to subsist on the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast for life, while my older son particularly loved the Happy Birthday Muffins. I run an elementary school library, but my population includes quite a few students interested in baking and who practice with their families on the weekends. They've checked out the same cookbooks again and again, and though they've loved them all, it's time for something new - and 100 Morning Treats is just the ticket. I know I'll be buying copies for both my school and home libraries when it's published!

Thank you for allowing me to read and review this cookbook!

When I heard that Sarah Kieffer was coming out with a new cookbook, I knew I had to have it. 100 Cookies is one of my most beloved cookbooks. It has the batter-covered pages to prove it.

With 100 Morning Treats, Kieffer tackles breakfast. Included are various sweet and savory recipes for muffins, scones, and quick bread. Coffee cakes and bundt cakes, as well as more challenging baked goods with yeasted and fried treats. Other sections include laminated pastries and recipes that require a little more time, and therefore, best baked on the weekend.

If you have baked from 100 Cookies, then this book's setup will be familiar to you. I know that some will take issue with the simple photos, plain white backgrounds for the recipes, and the occasionally lengthy directions. However, for me, someone who is still relatively new to baking, it is perfect. The format allows the recipe to shine.

I appreciate that the measurements are listed in both standard and metric units. Allowing me to precisely measure. I also love that for the recipes that require a little more technique, there are easy-to-follow, step-by-step photos. It is so much easier for me to see the steps, rather than read them.

I made several recipes. My favorites were the Southwest Turkey Breakfast Sandwiches, Pesto Pull Apart Bread, Buttermilk Cinnamon Rolls, Tiramisu Bundt Cake, and the simple but amazing Blueberry Muffins.

I can't wait to own this cookbook and try the rest.

I will post on my social media as the release date gets closer.

Thank you to Netgalley, Chronicle Books, and Sarah Kieffer for allowing me to bake from this book in exchange for an honest review.

Okay, I am so thankful to Sarah Kieffer and Chronicle Books for granting me early access to this book of wonderful recipes for morning-hour treats and sweets. I've perfected my cinnamon roll recipe for family get-togethers, but now I'm stoked because I'll have so many delicious sweet recipes up my sleeve. 100 Morning Treats is set to publish on May 9, 2023 and I'm so stoked to get my hands on a finished copy.

100 Morning Treats by Sarah Kieffer is the second cookbook I have read by this author. I loved the author’s book 100 cookies and this is a gem as well. What a great book! The photography is sumptuous. The instructions are easy-to-follow and the book is chock-a-block full of culinary ideas.

I am a person who would rather eat breakfast than any other meal of the day. I love making baked goods that are billed for ‘Dessert’ that I can have for breakfast. This book satisfies that need for me. I would highly recommend that you do not read this book when you are hungry. Between the photos and descriptions you will be craving what is on every page.

Since I cook almost every meal of every day you can easily see how each recipe is well thought out. The book is organized logically. There is something for everyone in this book. To cater to a wider audience the author includes imperial and metric measurements so you aren’t running to your phone for a conversion. I would highly recommend this book. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Kieffer has in store for us next!

Thank you to Sarah Kieffer, Chronicle Books and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Sarah Kieffer offers 100 recipes for tasty breakfast treats, ranging from simpler quick breads to more complicated laminated pastries that are perfect for weekend projects. I like that Kieffer's newest title has a layout in keeping with her previous titles; the book is beautiful to lookout and the recipes easy to follow, no too-light font colors or too much flipping of pages required. I made the carrot cake twice as mini-muffins and can't rave enough about them---the brown butter cream cheese frosting made them even more delicious. Recommended for bakers of all skill levels.

100 Morning Treats is a delightful collection of breakfast breads, rolls, and more curated by Sarah Kieffer. Due out 9th May 2023 from Chronicle Books, it's 304 pages and will be available in hardcover and ebook formats.

This is a comprehensive and versatile collection of well written recipes for breakfast and brunch foods, both sweet and savory. Recipes are arranged thematically in chapters: muffins scones & quickbreads, coffee & bundt cakes, sweet yeasted & fried treats, laminated pastries, weekend treats, base doughs & breads, and extras (drinks, streusels, jams, and syrups). Recipes are written with a description, ingredients in a bullet list sidebar, and followed by step-by-step prep instructions. Recipe ingredients are listed in imperial (American) units with metric units in parentheses (yay!). Required ingredients will probably be easy to source at any well stocked grocery store in North America.

The entire collection is beautifully photographed throughout and the food is well styled, attractive, and appetizing.

The author/editors have also included useful appendices such as a suggested playlist of tunes, a bibliography and resource lists, conversion chart, and cross referenced index.

Four and a half stars. This is a solidly useful, versatile, and appealing reference and will be at home in a wide variety of kitchens. It would be a good selection for public library acquisition, home use, and gifting purposes.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

I love Sarah Kieffer and her recipes, and own all of her cookbooks. So, this is no surprise 100 Morning Treats is yet another gem of hers. I'm just amazed how she can created so many gem-like recipes soon after she published a book not too long ago!

100 Morning Treats is truly a keeper - from sweets to savory and so many varieties to keep any bakers entertained and brush their skills. Her recipes are easy to follow and they are for beginners to seasoned cooks, and all of them come with beautiful photographs. Even though the title says morning treats, if you're a carb lover like I am, this book will keep you satisfied for morning treats to evening! :)

I really can't compliment enough about this book. Straightforward with gorgeous photos, so many different types of treats to choose from... It is a fantastic resource. I can't wait for the hard copies to come out, so I can get one for myself and gift some to others. Highly recommend!

I already was a fan of Sarah Kieffer after her 100 Cookies book, but I wasn't sure how I'd feel about a book dedicated to morning treats. Well, within the first few pages, I knew this was a cookbook I needed to add to my shelf. I wanted to make everything--like add this to the list of "cookbooks I'd love to cook my way through a la Julie and Julia style."

What I liked is that there's a great mix of recipes from the easily doable to the more aspirational, and the more involved ones have great step by step pictures to make the recipes less intimidating. She makes me believe that I, too, could make a croissant. :)

I also appreciated that there are some standards in there. I don't want to buy a cookbook about morning treats and then there's no blueberry muffin or cinnamon roll recipe. She has you covered. But there are also a number of recipes with new twists such as Streusel Bottom Bread, Lemon Meringue Bread, Everything Bagel Breakfast Pretzels, and Pumpkin Caramel Monkey Bread. There's also a whole section on Bundt cakes which excited me because I just bought my first Bundt pan. I was also pleasantly surprised to see there were even a few breakfast sandwich recipes included.

This one is a winner! And now I'm hungry...

This is a great baking book and who doesn’t love a breakfast treat!
Sarah Kieffer got my attention at ‘overnight scones’ which is such a great idea. Don’t worry, it is not all scones, the muffins are not your run of the mill recipes either and I was particularly intrigued by the Caramel Apple muffins and the Grapefruit Glazed muffins.
I will say that the recipes do have a long ingredient list but it is all easy to come by.
Other things I want to make for breakfast right now are the Cinnamon scones, Sour cream chocolate chip bread and the Ginger orange carrot bread. Delicious!

I've been a fan of Sarah Kieffer for years, so was eager to get an early glimpse at these new morning treat recipes! Her 100 Cookies book is a favorite at our house and I love her inventive takes on classics and modern baking alike. 100 Morning Treats has all of her signature inventiveness and a solid collection of different variety of mornings treats. For me personally, however, I didn't see as many things that jumped out to me as recipes to bookmark and try as I'd expected. Not necessarily because they didn't look delicious - but because they looked to be more complicated and cumbersome than I'd have time to do for breakfast unless it were a holiday or we had company coming over. I'll absolutely be making Cinnamon Roll Pull-Apart Bread the next time we have a leisurely morning as a family. And the Giant Carrot Cake Cinnamon Roll looks amazing, but I'll have to wait for company because not everyone in my house likes both of those things separately, much less together. The Chocolate Pudding Bundt Cake is incredible. I, for one, am a big fan of cake for breakfast! But my favorite chapter - that I loved - is the last section of "Extras" with sauces and drinks and syrups and jams, etc. I love to have a toolbox of all the odds and ends that enable bakers and cooks to really pull things together and mix-and-match with other recipes. I thought this was a fun compilation of breakfast recipes and - while I didn't love it as much as 100 Cookies - I will still likely want a hard copy for my shelves and know a few of these recipes will be crowd favorites around here.

This seems like a very solid baking cookbook with some great recipes I can't wait to try. Looking at you Maple Bourbon Caramel Rolls. I love that she provides weights for all the ingredients (and encourages people to use the superior kitchen scale method instead of measuring cups). Recipes are well formatted, clearly laid out, and the instructions given are easy to understand. I have not yet kitchen tested one of the recipes, so my review doesn't include any actual wins or fails. My only ding on this cookbook is the photography feels a bit bland. Not enough color, not very dynamic angles or framing.

Another 5 star winning cookbook from Sarah Kieffer! I love this book with all its decadent and delicious recipes. I have been a fan of Sarah’s since purchasing her 100 Cookies book at an adult book fair last year. I love that she takes the time to give a little tidbit about what inspired her for each recipe. She’s so optimistic and it shows in her stories and recipes.

There are some really great recipes I can’t wait to try in this new book including: Caramel Apple Muffins, Creamy Jammy Coffee Cake and Blood Orange Poppy Seed pull apart bread. Her recipes are so creative and unique and the flavors always compliment each other. I’ll definitely be getting a copy of this new book when published!

ARC provided by NetGalley

I'm not usually a baker, but I love the idea of being one. I think my cooking skills are so appallingly lacking, that I would offend chefs everywhere to attempt baking. That being said, I'm a sucker for baking recipes and the idea of my home smelling like a local bakery. I think the price of $27.50 USD is fairly standard for a cookbook, if not for the fact that I've noticed book prices hiking recently here in the states.

The pictures of the recipes are clean, crisp, and engaging. In many cookbooks, I see an entire display set up to showcase the meal or snack that's been prepared, but not here. It reminds me a lot of Barefoot Contessa, where everything is stripped on the landscape and zoomed in to show exactly what we're here for: the food. And I really appreciate that, because nothing can be your standard image of the perfect loaf of bread or puff pastry.

The recipes themselves are not anything too ountlandish you'd be intimidated off the bat to try, but also not so basic that you can read it off the side of a Betty Crocker box or your mom's magazine clipping filled binder of recipes from Home Cooking 2007. They are splite by baking type; such as cakes, yeast, weekend eats, and breads, making it easy to narrow down which I would like to try first. The introduction is brief and to the point; including summaries for how to use the book and how to start baking for the audiences that may be at an introductory level. Aka, me.

In the cookbook overall is 306 pages of warm, inviting instructions that make you feel as if you can in fact make some from scratch muffins without setting the fire alarm off. I really enjoyed the layout of the book, how clean it felt in design, and how descriptive the instructions were to guide you along every step of the way.

Previously, I have reviewed 100 Cookies by Sarah Kieffer (of The Vanilla Bean Blog), a cookbook I bought even though I am lactose intolerant and it is chock full of recipes that are dairy dependent. Since reviewing that book two years ago, I am still lactose intolerant, but I have become much more comfortable adapting recipes to fit my dairy free needs. Oat milk and Earth Balance are my friends. I have also found that I am almost as happy to bake things I can’t eat for other people as I am to bake things I can eat for myself. I tested several of the recipes both as written and adapted for dairy free. I even made a couple vegan.

I love this cookbook. I am a recipe criminal in that I see recipes as a jumping off point for my imagination. What works best for me about this book is that the foundations are solid. Once I know a recipe works as written, I can play. Every recipe I tried works beautifully as written and as adapted to be dairy free.

There are two recipes in here that I have now made so many times I have them memorized – the Milk Bread Dough and the Toasting Bread. The milk bread dough is a dream to work with. It bakes up beautifully as a loaf and is endlessly adaptable. Kieffer gives credit to Kristina Cho and her cookbook Mooncakes and Milk Bread as the source for the milk bread recipe in 100 Morning Treats. I wish I had been more confident making dairy free substitutions when I was reviewing that cookbook. I couldn’t tell any difference in the loaf when I used dairy milk and butter versus when I used oat milk and Earth Balance Buttery Sticks. I also took the filling and glaze from the Orange Buns recipe and used the milk bread to make cinnamon orange knots. I am obsessed with them now.

The Toasting Bread is a sleeper of a recipe, but I fell in love with it. While I do make toast with it (spread with fake butter and drizzled with hot honey), It makes an excellent sandwich loaf. It’s oaty and soft. Making the bread is a fairly quick process, and if you have a standing mixer, the whole thing is very easy. Honestly, I would buy the cookbook for this recipe alone.

Other recipes I made which I will make again when I have the hard copy in my hands:

Cardamom Bundt Cake with Coffee Glaze
Morning Buns with Cheater Croissant Dough*
Brioche Bagels
Giant Carrot Cake Cinnamon Roll
Ham and Cheese Breakfast Sliders
*I could definitely tell a difference when I used the dairy free butter in the cheater croissant dough, but it’s the closest I have come to making a good croissant since finally giving up butter. I will continue to play with it.

I have a list of people that I’m buying this for, including myself. I would have loved a few more savory morning recipes, but not enough to knock off a star. This cookbook also works best if you have a standing mixer.

I received this as an advance reader copy from Chronicle Books and NetGalley. My opinions are my own, freely and honestly given.

What a great selection of bakes, appropriate for morning — but really, to be enjoyed any time.

This is a stylish and appetizing collection of recipes that’s appropriate for beginners and more expert bakers.

I am a total sucker for baking books and Sarah Kieffer has always been my absolute favorite, so I was thrilled to get an advance copy of 100 Morning Treats. I baked my way through many of these recipes and every single one was amazing. Every. Single. One. I’ve made a million banana breads but the recipe for Brown Butter Banana Bread was by far the best I’ve ever had. And the Sour Cream Chocolate Chip bread? Game changer. You simply can’t go wrong with these recipes.

If you don’t know Sarah Kieffer (creator of the pan-banging cookie), let this be your introduction. Her Baking for the Holidays and 100 Cookies books are well-loved in my house and I can’t wait to add 100 Morning Treats to my collection.

100 Morning Treats is another hit by Sarah Kieffer! I absolutely adore 100 Cookies, so I was delighted to hear she was making a book focused on breakfast/brunch recipes. As implied by the name, this cookbook is mostly filled with treats. There's a selection of savory dishes, but the bulk is more pastry/baking focused. Recipes are mostly at the beginner/experienced beginner level, but there's also a section for laminated pastries that are more advanced. This book has options for just about every morning treat you could imagine, baking tips, and suggestions on how to customize certain recipes. I know I will be being a ton of these recipes!

100 Morning Treats is the perfect book for baking enthusiasts! It covers basically every baked good you would want in the morning.

This would also make for such a wonderful gift to those just starting to bake or seasoned bakers.

My blood sugar shot up just from looking at the pictures. This is the perfect book for the owners of a B&B. I can't imagine a home baker making all this stuff. The range is huge.

Sarah Kieffer adheres to the Master Recipe and Variations form and we get detailed recipes for various doughs and then ideas for modifying them. Most of the recipes are for sweet pastries and breads but there is a chapter of savories too.

The recipes are well written and I didn't spot anything incomplete or confusing. The origin stories included with many recipes are welcome. So often writers lift recipes without acknowledging who they were adapted from.

You might never have to buy a pastry book again.

Here is a book that will make even night owls want to get up and start their days. It has recipes from my favorite (bread) food group. There are recipes for muffins, rolls, biscuits, breads, scones, danish, French toast and more. Every single one of these 100 appeals to me.

As is generally true for cookbooks, this one begins with a section packed with helpful information. Then come the recipes with directions that make sense and the mouthwatering photos.

This book will be adored by those who like the bread game, even if it is not breakfast time. For those who don’t like to bake, gift it to someone as a gift and offer to be the taster.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

This book has 100 breakfast recipes to bake and cook. My family and I tried three of them. One was very easy and two were more difficult.

Sometimes a few pages into a cookbook is all you need before you say, “yup, you’re coming home with me.” And this was definitely one of those moments. These recipes looked delicious and the photography was incredible.

This cookbook is split up into sections:
Muffins, Scones, and Quick Breads
Coffee Cakes and Bundt Cakes
Sweet Yeasted and Fried Treats
Laminated Pastries
The Weekend
Base Dough and Breads
Extras

I kept waiting to come across a section that made me hesitant to try anything, but it never happened. Every one of these looks like a recipe that I would naturally be drawn to anyway. I’m tempted to make the House Pancakes soon because I seem to try different pancake recipes out of all my cookbooks. So that will probably be made soon.

If you like breakfasts and making baked goods, this is definitely a book to check out. It’s full of recipes we all know and like, and I can’t wait to dive in.

Thank you to Chronicle Books and NetGalley for providing an ebook for my honest review.

100 Morning Treats

The author points out that differing oven temperatures, humidity and coldness in the air, and even different brands of flour and butter affect how your product will turn out.
The first chapter deals with bread, scones and muffins - from double - chocolate banana muffins, to maple - oatmeal scones and finishes with lemon - meringue bread, which is a superstar with a lofty crust of meringue on top !
Remember to read the ingredient list carefully so you have all the products you need.
The coffee cake and bundt cakes include a simple citrus coffee cake, a tiramisu bundt cake, and an old fashioned chocolate pudding bundt cake (remember the cake mix ?) that are sure to please any palate!
There are buttermilk cinnamon rolls with thick icing, a giant carrot cake cinnamon roll, and chocolate glazed donuts that look bakery fresh!
The cream-filled danish is a holiday treat, the cinnamon twists are a great after school snack, and the popovers with fig butter are a showstopper!
Enjoy creating breakfast treats or sweet suppers with these mouthwatering recipes!

This cookbook is GREAT! I love collecting cookbooks and this one belongs on everyone's shelf. My favorite recipe has to be the maple poppy seed bread! I just love poppy seed! (I do love the Danish recipes too!) This cookbook really does have 100 morning treats! Each one has a delicious photo paired with them and my oh my do I just wish I could eat it right off the page!
If you love breakfast pastries, bread, and other baked goods, then you NEED this cookbook! I can't wait to try more of these recipes!! I highly recommend it!

Presented well with base ingredients most people actually have and the recipes seem like a delight. Can't wait to try them!
