Ring in the New Year with some sweet treats that can double as a brunch dish the next day. These New Year recipes will take you from New Year’s Eve to New Year‘s Day and keep you sweet all year long!
Do you have a family tradition for celebrating New Year’s Day? We mostly just stay home, watch the Rose’s parade on television or maybe go out for brunch. This year will be a little different, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have brunch at home with some sweet treats from leftover New Year’s Eve desserts!
#1. Pear Almond Cake
This cake is totally gluten free and absolutely amazing. If you know me, I love my gluten and carbs, but I’m hooked on this delicious flourless cake. I guess if you have any New Year’s resolution relating to eating less gluten, this would be the cake for you.
This gingerbread bundt cake is full of amazing flavors. It is perfect with eggnog for dessert and coffee for breakfast. With its generous size, I know you’ll have some leftovers to serve for New Year’s brunch.
Speaking of taking something from desserts to brunch, this cranberry orange bread is the perfect candidate! It resembles a loaf cake for dessert but a coffee cake for brunch. Plus the bright flavors of orange and cranberries will certainly brighten up your New Year’s Day.
Who says you can’t have chocolate for breakfast? You absolutely can when they’re hidden inside a pumpkin bread. Cuz bread for breakfast is completely normal!
Have you ever compared bread pudding with french toast bake? Do you see the resemblance here? You know where I’m going with this right? Yup, you can definitely have bread pudding for brunch!
Scones are definitely a brunch appropriate food. And these flaky tender cranberry orange scones have all the flavors to brighten up the whole winter season.
Apple, cinnamon, and cardamon are all the flavors of the holiday season. Savor them for New Year’s Day brunch to keep the holiday vibes around just a little bit longer!
I didn’t realize how many citrus flavor treats I have on this list, but I just love their bright flavor. It’s only appropriate to start the New Year on a happy note with these delicious tangerine olive oil cakes, make them in mini bundt pans, as a cake, or in muffin tins!
Hold on to the flavors for the holidays just a little longer with these apple pie oatmeal bars. They’re decadent enough to serve for dessert, but they are made with rolled oats, so totally a breakfast food, right?
#10. Baked Apple Donuts
These baked apple donuts are super easy to make. If you have leftover apple butter, whether homemade or store bought, you gotta make these!
Bonus: Mini Pigs in a Blanket
These cute little pigs in a blanket may not be a dessert, but they will make an excellent appetizer for your New Year’s Eve party and I’m certain no one will complain about having these for brunch the next day.
Happy New Year and thank you for your support throughout the years! I hope you’ll find a little joy in making these New Year’s recipes or any of my recipes for yourself, your family and friends. May all your days be a little brighter and sweeter in the new year.
