These recipes sound great, but unfortunately most people cannot be bothered making their own breads and cakes, which is such a shame because there really is no better smell than that of freshly baked bread or cake!
The orange muffins would be even better with some little chocolate chips or maybe some cinnamon for a more christmassy spice feel! Yum!

I have never liked fruit cakes. They always remind me of that stale, leftover bread that someone brought to the christmas party, and no one ever touches it. It's always the last thing left behind and everyone always wonders who brought it. These recipes do sound quite nice though, maybe I'll try one!

I love the orange pound cake! I am definitely considering for my next party's dessert! Too bad I can't prepare the pineapple one (I'm allergic to this fruit), but it looks good too. I am really glad to find that you don't have to give up on sweet foods, and that there always are some options for those who have a sweet tooth!

I am such a huge fan of the bread and now that I am gaining a little weight, I am thinking on preparing my own breads at home because in this way I can know what are the ingredients that I am using, and of course I can make it with healthier ingredients, like those that you explain here, so thank you very much

The cakes and the breads are very consumed in this season, and most of the prople just consume the conventional one that stores sell, but the best is to prepare your own bread at home right? with the ingredient you like and always following the health guidelines

Good! Because this year my responsibility is to prepare the last dish in the evening, the dessert, and I was hoping to find something very delicious and still easy so a cake sounds like a very good option,
I have read all the recipes and all of them are quick and easy so they are perfect! I just have to choose one now?
