Favorite Fall Breads For All The Cozy Fall Feels


Bourbon Caramel Donut Bread Pudding
Angel Food Bakery and Donut Bar’s Bourbon Caramel Donut Bread Pudding

There’s nothing quite as comforting as tearing open a hot and fresh roll and watching the steam slowly billow out or sinking our teeth into a crusty, chewy loaf of bread. Who knew that something so simple as flour and water could bring so much joy and comfort?  

Bread is at nearly every meal. We start our day with avocado toast, sweet cinnamon buns, and hot buttery scones. For lunch, we make hearty sandwiches of the finest deli meats on thick slices of bread. Most dinners begin with the passing of the bread basket, filled with warm fluffy biscuits, dinner rolls, or popovers. 
No matter the reason or season, we love to break bread. Fall is the perfect time to get bread-y for the best bread service, from savory to sweet fall breads, to scones and loaves, to buns and rolls.

What Are the Most Popular Fall Breads?

Doughn’t you know, there are dozens of kinds of bread. Each culture has its classics and favorites, which come in all shapes and sizes. Bread is perfect with a cup of coffee or on its own for a classic fall feast.

The most popular fall breads include:

Bourbon Caramel Donut Bread Pudding

Angel Food Bakery and Donut Bar’s Bourbon Caramel Donut Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is a popular dessert in many countries. It’s made with old bread plus milk or cream and, oftentimes, eggs and other ingredients. 
Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Angel Food Bakery makes one of the best breads that combines two of our favorites: donuts and bread pudding. Their legendary Bourbon Caramel Donut Bread Pudding is a loaf of bread pudding infused with bourbon and caramel. It’s topped with icing and more caramel.

Russ & Daughters’ Round Challah

Challah isn’t just for the Jewish High Holidays. This braided, labor-intensive Eastern European bread is delicious anytime. 

NYC’s Russ & Daughters bakes a delightful 10-inch Round Challah with and without raisins. Each certified kosher challah weighs 2 lbs. and is a tasty taste of tradition.

Weikel's Bakery Cinnamon Rolls

Weikel’s Bakery’s Cinnamon Rolls

There are few things more irresistible than the smell of cinnamon rolls baking in the oven. These pinwheels of cinnamon and dough are a breakfast staple but are wonderful for fall coffee breaks too. 

Weikel’s Bakery in La Grange, Texas, puts a Czech twist on classic cinnamon rolls. Their sweet Czech dough is used to make the most cinn-fully delicious Cinnamon Rolls drenched in sweet almond and vanilla icing. The bakery also makes cinnamon rolls with raisins and pecans and Honey Bee Rolls drizzled with honey and topped with crunchy pecans.

Tartine Bakery’s Country Loaf

One of the classic breads we crave is a proper country loaf. A country loaf is a sourdough bread with a thick and chewy crust that shatters when sliced. It’s perfect for dipping into soups, toasting for a wonderful morning breakfast, and, later, transforming into croutons or breadcrumbs.

San Francisco’s Tartine Bakery isn’t loafing around when it comes to baking its hearty Country Loaf. Its super-wet, long-fermented French bread is leavened with a starter that is fed several times each day. The flour is fresh-milled from single-variety grains. It’s no wonder lines start forming outside the bakery shortly after the bread finishes baking in the wee hours of the morning.

RoRo's Baking Company Dinner Rolls

RoRo’s Baking Company’s Dinner Rolls

It’s really difficult to pass up hot-and-fresh dinner rolls. These individual servings of yeasted bread are a must at Sunday supper, holidays, and even weeknight dinners. 
Dallas, Texas’ RoRo’s Baking Company is on a roll with its famous Dinner Rolls, a pan of eight handmade rolls. Each roll is soft, fluffy, and waiting for a generous pat of butter.

Pearl Snap Kolaches’ Kolaches

One of the best hand-held desserts are kolaches, a Czech breakfast pastry similar to a Danish.

Pearl Snap Kolaches in Fort Worth, Texas, makes one of the greatest Kolaches. Kolaches are pillowy sweet bread filled with fruit, cream cheese, or meat. We suggest trying both the sweet and savory varieties, and we dare to stop yourself at just one of each.

Montilio's Baking Company Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins

Montilio’s Baking Company’s Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins

Muffin compares to freshly baked muffins, quickbreads infused with fruits like bananas, blueberries, and cranberries.

There’s muffin we like more than nostalgic breads like Montilio’s Baking Company’s Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins. Named for the muffins baked at the now-shuttered Jordan Marsh Department Store in Boston, Montilio’s Baking Company uses the recipe from the department store’s former head baker, John Pupel. Each cake-like blueberry muffin is topped with crunchy sugar crystals, just like it was made at the famed store.

BLT Steak’s Popovers

One of the most delightful ways to start a meal is to begin with popovers, large, light and airy rolls whose batter “pop” over the muffin tin or pan they are baked in. America’s version of Yorkshire pudding, popovers are made with an egg batter.

New York City’s BLT Steak makes its Signature Popovers with flour, eggs, milk, and Gruyère. These puffy beauties are perfectly paired with whipped butter.

Seven Sisters Scones

Seven Sisters Scones’ Scones

Who doesn’t love indulging in afternoon tea with freshly baked scones slathered in sweet toppings like fruit preserves and clotted cream. Scones are lightly sweetened bread that are denser and drier than biscuits.

Since 2015, Chef Hala Yassine (one of seven sisters and two brothers) has been baking sensational scones at her shop Seven Sisters Scones in Johns Creek, Georgia. Her Scones come in classic flavors like Blueberry, Cranberry Orange, and Vanilla Bean and creative flavors like Bacon, Cheddar & Chive, Fig & Goat Cheese, and Jalapeño, Green Olive & Cheddar.

Flour Bakery + Cafe’s Sticky Buns

When it comes to sticky buns, we love a sticky situation. Similar to cinnamon rolls, these breakfast sweet rolls come with a crunchy nut topping.

Boston’s Flour Bakery + Cafe generously tops its Sticky Buns with pecans and ships them ready to eat. One bite and you’ll see why pastry chef Joanne Chang beat Bobby Flay with these golden gooey Sticky Buns.
