Chocolate Mousse Cake

Monday, May 10, 2010

52 Comments

Often simple desserts are better than complicated ones.   That is not to say that the flavors are simple.  What I mean is that the dessert itself is made of only a few very well constructed components.  This mousse cake is an example of this.  Tender cake fluffy, rich mousse, and a light dusting of powdered […]

I had the opportunity, thanks to Natalie at Natalie’s Killer Cuisine, to be a part of a Dallas Food Bloggers Pot-Luck Lunch.    She has a write up of the event on her blog, which you can check out here, and aside from a whole lot of good food, there was a whole lot of […]

Chocolate Swirl Pound Cake

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, […]

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 […]

If you love chocolate then this recipe is the one for you.  My husband, who used to work in restaurants, would make this for me years ago when we were dating.  I found his old book of formulas and remembered how good this simple cake was and decided to go about making it.  His formula was […]

Molten Chocolate Cakes

Many, many years ago, before I went to culinary school, I tried my first molten chocolate cake.  I was perplexed as to how they were able to have a perfectly firm cake on the outside while having a molten chocolate core inside.  I was sure it was done by placing some sort of frozen chocolate center into […]

Have you ever had a bag of apples sitting around and you don’t know what to do with it?  Well, I found myself with that problem a few weeks ago and I decided to get creative.  The results were outstanding and I want to share.  Green apples are tops in my book.  They bake well, they slice and […]

  I decided on the dessert for my grandmother’s birthday.  She loves lemon so I made a Lemon and Vanilla Bean Cake filled with Lemon Curd and coated in Cream Cheese Frosting. For the cake I used a recipe from culinary school for Yellow Butter Cake, but tweaked it with the zest of a lemon, an […]
