{oh joy eats dessert with} joy the baker…



Who Joy the Baker {also known as Joy Wilson}: blogger, cookbook author, and professional lover of butter

Where Los Angeles, California

Time 10:45 am

What's a typical dessert for you? I love breakfast-like fried eggs and hearty potatoes drenched in hot sauce and ketchup. Love. What makes a good breakfast even better is "Breakfast Dessert". It's three mini pancakes you douse in pure maple syrup and enjoy with sweet, milky coffee just after you finish your eggs and potatoes. Breakfast Dessert might not be mainstream just yet… but I'm trying to bring people into the fold. Today, I've made chocolate chunk buttermilk pancakes with smashed raspberries.

What's your dream dessert? My dream dessert is Coconut Cream Pie with chocolate shavings and hot coffee. I'd eat that day and night.

How often do you treat yourself to dessert?  I'm a baker. I eat dessert every day… sometimes more than once a day. I have a carton of peanut butter cups on my desk right now…that's all I'm sayin'.

Thanks Joy!

  1. Breakfast dessert?! It will sweep the world! such a great idea, breakfast is my favourite meal I think and pancakes are the best…these look super amazing, I’m almost licking the screen…almost x

  2. That screams 17 different kinds of DELISH! Could it be possible for breakfast and dessert, my two favourite meals to co exist happily…damb I hope so!

  3. Totally cute, Joy. I love when us gals can joke about how much we like to eat! Those desserts sound divine (especially when breakfast is involved)!

  4. Are all my favorite bloggers in real life? I read this and I’m all like, “oh yeah, I know Joy loves those. Just bookmarked that recipe the other day.” Crazy. OMMM NOMMMS is all I can say.
