Most yeasted breads, like our morning buns and cinnamon rolls, can be made right up to the point when you shape the bread, at which point you can refrigerate overnight and finish the recipe the next day. When you need something that can be prepped and baked totally in advance, coffee cake, muffins, and scones are always a good idea.
