Homemade is Money Saved: Bakery Treats

Why spend money for prepared bakery treats when you can make them at home for a fraction of the price?

These homemade treats taste just like, if not better, than your favorite bakery items. But don't take our word for it--check out the rave reviews from Allrecipes Community Members!

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Submitted By: Barb

Rave Review: "Better than the stores/malls."


Clone of a Cinnabon

Submitted By: Marsha Fernandez

Rave Review: "These tasted wonderful and looked amazing! These may even be better than Cinnabons--they were definitely more gooey and soft which is how I prefer my cinnamon rolls. This is definitely a keeper, I love this recipe! Thank you so much for sharing!"


Sticky Monkey Brains

Submitted By: SUGISUGI

Rave Review: "Perfect! Tastes just like Dollywood's cinnamon bread. Use yeast bread (rolls will do) instead of biscuit dough--way better! You just have to let them rise first of course, but it's well worth the wait!"


Aunt Mary's Banana-Chocolate Chip Bread

Submitted By: Sandra Flick

Rave Review: "I have been wanting the bread they sell at Starbucks, then found this recipe. I love it! Thank you!"


Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf

Submitted By: IRENED

Rave Review: "I used lemon yogurt instead of plain, and since I hate zesting lemons and was in a hurry I used one tablespoon of lemon extract in with the yogurt and lemon juice. I also added a few drops of yellow food coloring because the batter was not yellow at all, and it came out great--just like you buy at the store, but better!"


Oatmeal Apricot Squares

Submitted By: Veronica Roza

Rave Review: "The day I made this I never realized just how popular it would become. Apparently it's the type of food that doesn't last long anywhere except in my family members' stomachs. Now my mom is hooked and stopped buying breakfast bars."

If you find the squares too crumbly, try adding more butter or marj. to the crust. I've done this with date squares and it works to make a richer, more carmely crust and topping

I took a pan of the cinnabon clones to the neighbors when the family was coming home for their father's funeral. I had so many thank you's and raves, that I will probably make this my standard funeral fare.
