Chocolate Cream Filled Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Frosting

Monday, February 1, 2010

75 Comments

I have discovered the secret to world peace. Ok, maybe not world peace, but at least momentary joy and happiness.  I have been toying with the idea of a chocolate filled vanilla cupcake for a while.  As it happens I have a soft spot for cream filled cupcakes, considering one is now my logo, and […]

Chocolate Swirl Pound Cake

Friday, January 15, 2010

27 Comments

When I was a child swirled pound cake was an utter mystery to me. I wondered how they were able to get the chocolate batter to make such intricate designs in the finished cake.  Now that I am older I understand that the oven does nearly all the swirling because as the cake bakes the […]

Apple Carrot Maple Cakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Nothing makes me happier than when I can combine two things I love into one thing I really love! I love apple cake and I love carrot cake.  While looking at some apples in the market I noticed carrots on sale also, and inspiration struck!  Why not combine the two?  Tart apples, sweet carrots, warm spices, […]

Fruit Cake

Wait!  Before you hit the back button just hear me out. I know fruit cake gets a bad rap, and most of the time it is well deserved.  Be it the candied citron, the fluorescent cherries, or insipidly sweet cake, most fruit cake is in fact very bad.  Terrible even.  I’m still asking you to […]

It’s time for gourds and squash to fill up the produce markets! This year I decided to make my own pumpkin puree.  I was inspired by a whole brigade of fellow bloggers who have been posting yummy looking recipes with their fresh pumpkin.  Who am I to buck the trend?  If they could, so could […]

Caramel Cake with Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting

So, the recipe for Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie Cookies contains a recipe that yields well over a cup of caramel sauce.    That is a lot more caramel than you really need.  Never fear, I have an elegant solution for what to do with the extra caramel that does not require two pints of ice cream and a marathon of my favorite Marilyn Monroe […]

Welcome Fall!!   It is not exactly cool here, but we have had three days where the temps have stayed cool enough for the air to be crisp, and that puts me in a Fall baking mood!  I decided to break out all the ingredients for a spice cake when a bar of dark chocolate […]

Peach Upside-down Cake

 As Summer winds down, and we start to see the Summer fruit dwindle in the stores, I find that I am on one last Summer dessert push.     I know, in a few shorts weeks, that the fresh Summer peaches will be replaces with the depressing peaches we get most of the year.  I am […]

Chocolate Angel Food Cake

 This recipe is something of a triumph for me.    I have long suffered with an inability to make a light and tender angel food cake.  The cakes always, without fail, fall in the oven or just after removal from the oven.  It drove me mad!   Now I am confident those days are behind […]
