Magic Cake

magic-cake-1

Magic Cake! Where do I begin? I started out very skeptical when I saw this cake on foodepix.com. The name intrigued me at first. I had to click to see the recipe just to see why this cake is called magic cake, because there really is no such thing. Unfortunately the recipe was in another language, but there's always google translator, the only problem is you know you always lose something in the translation. But not to worry, it was enough for me to realize why this cake is called magic cake. If … [Read more...]

Coffee Cake Bread

coffee cake bread-1-2

I made this coffee cake bread late last night and I dreamt about it all night. It was late last night when I made it so I didn't try it. Hence the dreaming part. You don't understand. I love my Sunday morning breakfasts. Not a Sunday goes by that I don't make something nice for breakfast. And this coffee cake bread is the perfect complement to a good cup of coffee. To make it even more special I drizzled some caramel sauce over it, but feel free to skip it, it's entirely optional. Coffee … [Read more...]

Japanese Cheesecake

I am the biggest cheesecake fan there is and I've been dying to try this Japanese cheesecake. I'm so glad I made it, if you love cheesecake, then this will be your next favorite cheesecake.

Pumpkin Ricotta Cheesecake

pumpkin ricotta cheesecake-1-3

I had a tough time coming up with a name for this cheesecake because it has both ricotta cheese and cream cheese in it, so to call it Pumpkin Ricotta Cream cheesecake, too long and it just doesn't sound right. But regardless of its name, the important thing is that if you're a pumpkin fan, like me, and you love pumpkin season, then you're simply going to love this cheesecake, assuming you like cheesecake as well. When I took the pictures I had not waited long enough for the cheesecake to cool, … [Read more...]

Berry Cheese Cake Squares

I am not a big cake maker, though I will make them every once in a while, so when I do make a cake I want it to be special.

German Chocolate Cake

german chocolate cake-1-2

One of my favorite cakes is German chocolate cake. I don't make it often, this is probably the second time I've made it, but it is amazing, however I will eat it whenever I get a chance. My favorite part about it is the coconut and pecan topping, obviously. Coconut and pecans together make a fabulous combination. The chocolate cake itself is the same recipe I always use for chocolate cake because I think it's the best. It's a moist cake that's made with buttermilk and it's just unbelievably … [Read more...]

It was my husband's birthday a couple weeks ago and for the longest time he's been asking for a carrot cake, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make one.

Not Yo’ Mama’s Banana Pudding

not yo mama's banana pudding-1-11

You know when you come across something that completely and pleasantly surprises you? This is what this pudding did for me! This banana pudding is genius. It sort of reminds me of a Napoleon type of dessert. It's so good, I can't even describe it. I'm ashamed to admit I've never had banana pudding before though so I can't really compare it with another banana pudding, but this pudding is right up there with Sex in a Pan. It is out of this world. This is Paula Dean's recipe. I love this … [Read more...]
