Black and White Gooey Butter Cake

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

58 Comments

If you grew up in the Southern part of the United States then you are probably familiar with gooey butter cake. You might also know it from Paula Deen on The Food Network who has made a cottage industry out of the dish, going so far as to sell countless varieties of them on QVC.  […]

Spiced Dark Chocolate Soufflé

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

23 Comments

I love things that look difficult but are in fact quite easy. Soufflé is one of those desserts that people assume is terribly difficult to make.  I think it goes back to cartoons and movies where someone is making a soufflé that comes out tall and perfect only to have it collapse in spectacular fashion.  […]

Orange Chocolate Stout Cake

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

I love beer. I know, not exactly shocking if you know me.  So many of my recipes are born of the odd craving, and this one is no different.  One afternoon, during a particularly stressful day at the office, I found myself craving a nice, stout beer.  I was also thinking how nice a slice […]

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

36 Comments

I’m something of a brownie junkie. That said, I am very specific about what I want in a good brownie, and I’m sad to admit I am not satisfied with most coffee shop or bakery brownies.  Give me deep, dark, intense, and fudgy brownies and I am a happy woman.  These needs do not change […]

Chocolate Dipped Lime Cardamom Cookies

Monday, August 16, 2010

23 Comments

When it is hot out I find lime to be most refreshing. Even in cookie form, lime flavored treats seem to taste the best when the temperature outside starts to soar.  We are in the middle of a heat wave in the Dallas area, so I am all about refreshing at the moment.  Since I […]

“Success is sweet and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats.” — Amos Bronson Alcott I do not often discuss the struggles I go through testing and re-testing recipes because I am not sure how interesting my development process is to you all.  Some recipes come together with one try, but […]

Golden Syrup Oatmeal Chip Cookies

It has been a little while since I made a batch of cookies, and it has also been a while since I used my beloved Golden Syrup.  Quel nightmare! So, when the inevitable cookie craving struck the other day I went directly to the pantry to see what was available.  I had already decided on […]

Chocolate Cardamom Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Thursday, June 10, 2010

33 Comments

When I’m feeling under the weather I tend to hibernate and stay out of the kitchen.  Once I begin to feel better I get the itch to bake. If you follow me on Twitter (@BakingBlog) you know that I caught a nasty bug last week and it knocked me out for about four days.  Now […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Bundt Cake

Friday, May 28, 2010

30 Comments

I love bundt cakes! I think it is the fact that they could go right out of the pan and need little more than a glaze, or a dusting of powdered sugar, to be ready to serve.  Growing up we used to have bundt cakes at most family gatherings.  At some point they fell out […]

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 […]
