Here’s a collection of 15+ Father’s Day baking recipes including breakfast, brunch, and dessert like fan-favorite chocolate muffins, giant cinnamon roll cake (that will surely impress any father figure in your life!!), a tastebud explosion also known as everything bagel breakfast casserole, and, of course, a truly fabulous thick-filling blueberry pie.
Dad will love each and every thoughtful recipe!
Happy Father’s Day weekend to every dad and fatherly figure reading this! My team and I pulled together a collection of reader-favorite recipes that would certainly celebrate the dads and fathers in our lives. Here are 15+ Father’s Day breakfast, brunch, and dessert recipes for you to browse. Have you tried any from this list?
By the way, if you need gift ideas for dad, here’s our collection of Gift Ideas for Bakers.
Double chocolate muffins and jumbo blueberry muffins have been in my recipe rotation for years, so if you’re looking for a muffin dad will love, both are prime choices. I also have this base muffin recipe where you can use your favorite add-ins and flavors.
And if dad loves banana, this is my favorite banana bread recipe… not muffins, but a total classic!
Baked donuts like these crumb cake donuts are extremely easy to prepare and if you don’t have a donut pan, you can use a muffin pan instead. When I have a little more time on my hands, maple bacon doughnuts are always a fun choice!
Can’t Go Wrong with Breakfast Casseroles
If you’re looking for sweet, cream cheese French toast casserole is always the winner. If you’re looking for savory, no one has ever passed up a serving of these everything bagel breakfast casserole. It’s my go-to nearly every single time I’m hosting brunch. (EVERY TIME!)
Indulgent Breakfast Cakes
Easy cinnamon rolls are obviously a family favorite, but why not kick it up a notch for dad with this giant cinnamon roll cake? (I’ve actually seen mouths watering when I set it down on the table. LOL.) If crumb cakes are more dad’s style, cinnamon crumb coffee cake or my blackberry cream cheese crumb cake (pictured below) is a guaranteed delight.
A Breakfast Classic
No breakfast feels more special than a plate of homemade pancakes and I recommend these whole wheat blueberry pancakes if you’re looking for something new to try.
These chewy chocolate chip cookies are the most popular cookie recipe on my website and completely worth a try. If you don’t have time to chill cookie dough, I recommend these Nutella chocolate chip cookies instead.
Or maybe dad doesn’t want to share? Try this giant monster M&M cookie.
And maybe ice cream is the way to dad’s heart? Try these chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches.
This key lime pie recipe requires just 3 ingredients for the filling. And if dad craves a classic blue-ribbon-worthy slice, this blueberry pie features a thick juicy berry filling (that sets beautifully!) with a golden buttery flaky pie crust.
You (and dad!) will appreciate this strawberry peach galette because it uses summer’s freshest fruits and is considerably easier to make than a full pie. But if there was 1 pie that conquers every other pie… a superhero pie if you will… it has to be this peanut butter pie.
Break Out Your Baking Pans!
Tart-sweet lemon bars and layered cookies and cream brownies are equally indulgent, impressive, and easier than they look!
And, clearly, no one could ever resist these 5 ingredient no bake peanut butter bars and campfire-inspired s’mores cookie bars. 🙂
And One Cake Just for Dad
Well, hopefully dad would share! This small chocolate cake is a 1 layer 6-inch cake. It’s undeniably quick and easy to prepare, simple to decorate, and there’s hardly any leftover.

Reader Comments & Reviews
Great list! So many of these are my faves.
I showed this post to my husband, and he said “Would it be wrong if I asked you to be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen all day? I can’t choose just one!”
But then he broke our oven by wiping down the glass door with a wet cloth right after we ran the self-cleaning cycle, so I guess he’s not getting any of them ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This comment made me laugh but OH NO about your oven! If you reeeeeeally still wanted to make something, the peanut butter bars are no bake. 😉
I made your Herbed Tomato Flatbread earlier this week. It was delish!! Thanks for the quality recipes — keep them coming!!
Thanks for these my dad will definitely enjoy them very much.
I made the white chocolate muffins, which were actually white chocolate blueberry muffins and they were out of this wonderful world.
I tried your recipe. It’s amazing!
