There's no busier time of year for many moms than the Winter Holidays. While most of the treats I make are the baked kind, I like these because they're completely no-bake but every bit as decadent as anything else I make. Setting time is important, so don't skimp on the 4-hour refrigeration time -- you'll be glad you waited.

Usually, it's the frosting that makes a cake, and this one is no exception. The moist and spicy cake is absolutely delicious on its own, but it's the cinnamon-laced brown sugar frosting that brings it right over the top. Little fingers can't help but sample the caramel goodness, so you may want to double the frosting recipe…just to be sure you have plenty to spare.

These great muffins are quite possibly my kids' favorite breakfast treat, and we make them often, especially during the colder months. Topped with sugar and spice, their tender crumb is not unlike a moist and wonderful cupcake, but the secret addition walnuts in the topping and whole wheat flour in the muffin adds some extra nutritional value too.
The promise of freshly baked goodness will surely draw those sleepy heads out of bed and into the kitchen, especially once they catch a whiff. Because you make the dough the night before and allow it to rise slowly in the fridge overnight, in the morning, all you have to do is pop them in the oven. Though many are intimidated by making yeast dough, you'll find that this one is soft and yielding and so easy to handle. I enjoy the work of kneading dough by hand, but if you don't have the time or inclination, the "dough" setting on your bread machine will work just fine, as will a dough hook attachment on a stand mixer.
