Peaches and Cream Cake

What happens when you bake cakes for a gathering and forget to take pictures for your food blog before service? In my experience, you do not get any pictures of two of the three cakes and the only piece of cake you do get a picture of is sloppy looking at best because your in […]

Looking for a cake that is great to serve for a potluck or a large crowd? Want a cake that would be great for people who like chocolate, but don’t love chocolate? This very easy, semi-homemade Chocolate Chip in Vanilla Bundt cake may just the answer. To me, this cake has about the right amount […]

Pineapple Sheet Cake

I find myself making a lot of sheet cakes whenever I cook/bake for a large crowd (70+ people). Thus, I am always on the lookout for new sheet cake recipes. I found one for a pineapple sheet cake in the Lehman’s Anniversary Cookbook and immediately changed it 🙂 Yep, that is how I roll anymore. […]

Oatmeal Cake

I must confess that I would much rather skip dessert than eat a piece of a dry, bland cake. Additionally, I must confess that I do not enjoy the act of applying frosting to a cake…let alone multiple cakes. Thus, I love a cake that is moist, delicious, and does not need a buttercream or […]

Pear Cake

This moist, tasty, simple pear cake is super easy to make. Seriously, I don’t think you could ask for much more except if would not require frosting…oh wait, it doesn’t. Unlike many cakes, this pear cake is good if it is still a little warm or made the day before. It is also a very […]

Strawberry Mascarpone Filled Cake

My daughter usually wants me to make her a strawberry cake for her birthday. The first year she asked for one, I made the strawberry cake with a strawberry filling completely from scratch. Although it was good, the color was kind of muted and not extremely appealing. The second year she asked for one, I […]

Chocolate Cherry Bars

My mom started making these chocolate cherry bars in 1970’s. I recently discovered that was probably because it seems to be a version of a 1974 Pillsbury Bake-off recipe. (Side Note: My cake did not turn out this time as pretty as I would have liked, but it tasted great.) This was a cake that […]

Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

If you like peanut butter fudge, I think you will like this cake. The icing reminds me of peanut butter fudge. However, the peanut butter flavor is more subtle than in the peanut butter fudge I make. Although there is some stove top cooking involved, this is a very quick baking cake that can be […]

Easter Cupcake Baskets

Making these easy Easter treats is a great way to get all members of a family involved in a project. I believe the first time I made these was as a kid for our Junior Girl Scout troop to take to a party (I think it was at a nursing home….they are great for kids, […]
