Cranberry Pecan Pie Cake

We debated over whether this was a pie or a cake.  Either way it is delicious!  And super easy to make, which is a win win in my book! This could be a fun and easy alternative for cranberries at Thanksgiving.  It calls for almond extract, which I love (especially added to icing). Print Cranberry […]

White Cake Take Two

  I tried out another cake recipe!  This one was different from the first one, but still really good.  Mom and I agreed that this would be the perfect cake recipe for petits fours.   Maybe I will try out that assumption soon! I made a 2 layer 4 inch round cake, and cupcakes.  Both […]

Fluffy White Cake with Vanilla Bean Frosting

This was my second attempt at a white cake from scratch.  The first one was awful!  It called for all-purpose flour instead of cake flour, and I think that was the problem.  As soon as I opened the box of cake flour I knew this recipe was going to be good.  Cake flour just smells […]

Italian Cream Cake

This is a family recipe (although it is probably very similar to many other recipes out there) and one of my favorites!  I remember the first time I ever made an Italian Cream Cake.  I was making it for a church bake sale/auction, and I remember being so proud of making a cake from scratch.  I think […]

Neapolitan Birthday Cake

Layers: Strawberry White German Chocolate with Strawberry icing Strawberry Icing enough for a 3 layer cake Place 1 cup of frozen whole strawberries (unsweetened.) in a food processor and puree.  Add 2 T sugar to taste. 2 sticks softened butter (I used 1 unsalted butter and 1 margarine) 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 tsp. salt […]

Chocolate Sheet Cake–Sized Down

I thought chocolate sheet cake sounded so good, but I didn’t want an entire cake lingering around for days so I decided to reduce the recipe.  This made the perfect amount…about 2 servings each, plus an extra one for me. Chocolate Sheet Cake makes 1 8 inch square cake 1.  Spray a small square baking […]

Oatmeal Cake

Every year on Den’s birthday he requests french toast for breakfast and oatmeal cake for dessert. Every year I get so many compliments on the cake. To be honest, the first time Den told me he wanted an oatmeal cake for his birthday I thought he was crazy.  Oatmeal cake?  What the heck is that? […]

Chocolate Cupcakes

I love chocolate!  Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate.  So when I saw this recipe for Moist Chocolate Cake it immediately went on my pinboard to try soon.  These cupcakes were great and moist several days later.  My only wish was to have baked them for less time!  (I like mine almost gooey) Moist Chocolate Cake […]

Molten Chocolate Cake for 2

This recipe was SOOOO good.  I am making this again tonight.  Super easy and doesn’t require any complicated ingredients.  You can also make this a few hours early and keep the unbaked ramekins in the fridge, just make sure you add a minute or so to the baking time. Molten Chocolate Cakes1/3 cup (2 ounces) semi-sweet […]

2 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

My mom came for a visit right before Thanksgiving and we had a blast!  She suggested trying this recipe, only two ingredients!  These cupcakes/muffins are unbelievably good…mmm. Combine one can of pumpkin with one box of cake mix.  Seriously, that is all you add. Scoop batter into lightly sprayed muffin tins and bake at 350 […]
