I have a naughty cake for you! Well the name is naughty but the cake is crazy awesome! When Penny, a reader, sent me this recipe I just knew I had to make it. How could I not?

So I did, and although I'm giving you the full recipe here, don't pay attention to my 8x8 glass pan you see in the picture because the hand model told me to only … [Read more...]

I'm super excited to share this recipe with you. This recipe for mystery cake dates back to the 1930s and this cake used to be very popular. You may wonder why it's called mystery cake and the answer is simple. The special ingredient used in this cake may surprise you. It's Campbell's Tomato Soup! No lie! Not too worry though, there is no tomato taste in this cake at all. The reason tomato soup was used is because during the 1030s ingredients such as butter and eggs were precious and hard … [Read more...]

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

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...]

Berry Cheese Cake Squares

I'll admit this cake was a bit of work to make, but it was one of the best cakes … [Read more...]

Chocolate Cake with Mixed Berry and Cream Cheese Filling

chocolate cake with fruit filling and cream cheese filling-11

I've probably impressed you by now with my baking skills, if not please let me believe I have. Ignorance is bliss after all. :) But if I haven't, I will impress you with this cake. So it's not one of those gloriously decorated cakes that took hours to put together, but for me taste always comes first and this cake definitely has that. This cake was so good it should be banned, notice I said was, as in the past tense, because it did not last long! What was the occasion, you ask. Who needs an … [Read more...]

Ricotta Cheese Cake

ricotta cake-8

Romanians love their cheese pastries, cheese pies, crepes filled with cheese, and cheese cakes, and I'm no different. Cheesecake is by far my favorite dessert, but this is an interesting cake, it's called a cheesecake but it's not your traditional cheesecake with cream cheese.  This is yet another traditional Romanian recipe that I just love.  It's a very easy cake to make, and the big difference between this cake and your traditional cheesecake is this is made with ricotta cheese.  This cake is … [Read more...]
