Dessert Back Up Plans for Thanksgiving

Even though we're booked to capacity for Thanksgiving week, we've got your back!  We've compiled a round-up of awesome back-up plans to make your Thanksgiving holiday still feel oh-so-cozy and special.

Pickup 11/19 - 11/21 by Preorder or Bake Sale

We still have some preorder pickup slots open for this weekend!

  • Take & Bake Seasonal Fruit Crisp: we have not one but TWO different yum-mazing flavors available for preorder this week: Cranberry-Apple Crisp for a true celebration of the holidays or our Autumn Apple Crumble with a cozy brown sugar topping perfect for our nut-free friends!
  • Muddy's Baking Mixes: did you know that we have fuss-free baking mix versions of some of our favorite shop recipes? Snag either our Vanilla Cake Mix Duo or Double Chocolate Brownie Mix... all they need are a couple kitchen staples and a pan. Easy peasy, y'all. And don't forget to add some of our signature buttercream to make it complete!
  • Take & Bake All-Butter Crust: Trying to make grandma's traditional holiday pie this year, but are nervous about the tricky crust? Let us help with our signature pie crust, frozen for home-baking whenever you need it!

Our Bake Sale will also have a yummy assortment of Take & Bake treats, baking mixes, sweets, & savories for you to stockpile for a festive holiday of eating. Come see us this Thursday-Saturday from 12-5 at our Kitchen: 2497 Broad Ave!

Muddy's Fun House Recipes

Throughout our Muddy's Fun House video series, we've baked together quite a few holiday-appropriate sweets, including some favorites using our own Take & Bake Crust! Watch our bake-a-longs as we walk you through how to make your very own holiday desserts.

  • Tollhouse Jack Pie: chocolate chips, a splash of bourbon, and toasty pecans make this pie the ultimate indulgence... and what's Thanksgiving about if not that!
  • Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Chess Pie: Just like grandma used to make! This southern classic is smooth and custardy with just the right amount of sweet.
  • Honeyed Fig Coffee Cake: every meal of the holiday should be special, including breakfast! This coffee cake takes a shortcut using our Muddy's Vanilla Cake Mix for a cozy, comforting treat to go with your morning cup o' joe.
