We’re all fans of coffee cake as a morning indulgence, so why not savor an all-time favorite as a sweet start to the day? This luscious vanilla pound cake has the perfect crumb and is drizzled with a velvety glaze made with specks of natural vanilla beans. To add even more flavor to your wake-up, top with candied oranges for a pop of color and zesty citrus flavor.

Consider it a breakfast scone gone rogue. Starting with a tart will make you feel like you’re at high tea and indulging in a work of culinary art. The base of this frangipane tart is made with subtly fragrant vanilla beans and roasted almonds spread into a shortbread crust. It’s then topped with lush, multi hued fresh figs and baked until golden. Enjoy this sweet-scented vanilla dessert in tandem with your morning coffee, or along with some fresh whipped cream for a little extra oomph.
