Chocolate Peppermint Cream Cheese Cake

Someone very wise once said that a party without cake is just a meeting. Well, Julia Childs, I couldn't agree more! And chocolate cake is never a bad thing, especially when it's pretty and festive and makes you ohso happy it's the holidays so you can top your cake with things like peppermint sticks and rosemary wreaths. I can't have a party and not have a cake. My go-to the past several parties I've had has been this Salted Caramel Chocolate Cinnamon Cake because it's absolutely delicious. Rich, awesome, … [Read more...]

Raspberry Sour Cream Cake

This cake is hands down one of my favorite desserts.  My mom made this growing up and I've continued to make it as an adult.  I've served this time and time again and have yet to meet someone who didn't ADORE this cake.  It is the perfect balance of tart and sweet. The cake is dense, served cold, and moist!  It's one of those desserts that you just want to keep eating and eating and eating. You make the cake in a jelly roll pan - the large 11x16 baking sheets with a lip that you can sometimes find at Costco.  I … [Read more...]

Italian Cream Cake

Grandma recipes are the best. You know they're foolproof because they've been baking them for decades, they usually have simple ingredients and directions, and nostalgia certainly makes everything taste better. My Grandma made this cake all of the time growing up, and my Dad has grown to request either this or my other Grandma's cheesecake for his birthday. Sounds like he has a thing for nostalgia too, eh? This perfectly fluffy cake and the rich, nutty icing is seriously easy and simple to make, yet so … [Read more...]

Sour Cream Pound Cake

This recipe has been on our blog for years and has always been one of my favorite cakes! Many of you know this but years ago, this blog was a group blog with many many contributors.

Raspberry Cake with Lemon Curd Filling and White Chocolate Icing

It's officially spring! And Easter is next week! And we love cake! Especially if it's pink... Several Easters ago, I made a Strawberry Coconut Cake that was the prettiest cake I'd ever made! I revamped the recipe last year, and this year went after the same aesthetics with different flavors. With white chocolate. I also did a Cherry and Lime Curd Shortcake, the curd of which I've been jonesing for. But lemon. A trick I love? To prevent your filling from being pushed out the sides, pipe a ring of … [Read more...]

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

If you are growing a garden that contains a zucchini plant you probably have zucchini coming out of your ears right now! I was just visiting my mom and she has so many growing and growing so dang fast! If we forget to check the garden for a day or two and pick the veggies then they end up mammoth size! When they're this large they aren't exactly the best for steaming up and eating fresh. They still have all kinds of uses so don't throw them away. Our favorite is to blend or grate them and use them in breads and … [Read more...]

Funfetti Dip

A few months back my parents came in to town.  I was hosting a craft night during her stay and she insisted that I make this dip.  She told me a co-worker of hers had given her the recipe and that it was to die for.  You can't say no to a description like that! With only 3 ingredients, it was made up in no time!  I served with with berries, grapes, and Nilla wafers. Needless to say it was snarfed down so so quickly.  Everyone loved it! I promise this will be a hit at your next get … [Read more...]

Strawberry Coconut Cake

Well the snow has finally left Texas and it's not 105 degrees yet, so that means one thing: Spring is here! and spring=cake. right? For some reason, coconut has been associated with Easter. Does anybody know why? I'm dying to know. Is it because of those super rad coconut Easter bunny cakes my mom used to make? The eggs nests? Give me all the Easter bunny cakes and eggs nests. And cadbury eggs. And reese's eggs. And cadbury eggs. I used to make a strawberry coconut cake recipe that I found several years … [Read more...]

Lemon Berry Cobbler

Today I'm sharing this delicious cobbler that I've been making for a few years now. It's light and fluffy with tangy berries mixed in, and it's incredibly easy! The bright berries and fluffy whip cream is making crave spring!! I call it a cobbler because the original recipe this was inspired by was called a cobbler. However, it seems more like a cake than a cobbler in many ways- kind of a cobbler cake. Moist and fruity like a cobbler but made from a thick batter and bakes up like a cake. I agree with calling it a … [Read more...]

Individual Red Velvet Trifle + Lemon Yogurt Filling

  In case ya didn't know, cupcakes are soooo last year, and trifles are sooo this year. OR so says my nine year old.For her birthday she wanted red velvet cake.... but not just your regular old cupcake. We had to change it up a bit. Make it a little more sophisticated, a bit more fancy. And let me tell you, all the other lil ladies who came to her party gobbled them up like crazy. Don't tell my husband this, but I even let them eat them in the living room. They were way way way less messy. I was a little … [Read more...]

Black Forest Gateau

This cake is somthin' special. It doesn't come from my grandma's recipe box, but it does come from a grandma's. One who lives in Germany (I think that just makes it all the more cool. right? like, this is legit.). I have a friend who has lived around the world, and has family-in-laws all over the world too. She posted on her instagram her father's favorite cake and it looked AH-MAZING. She is so generous to share it with the world. It has a sweet back story to it so I want her to tell it. I'm going to write what … [Read more...]

5 Layer Cake with Raspberry Mousse Filling and Chocolate Ganache

Here's the deal. This cake tastes pretty amazing. 5 layers of moist, thick white cake, blanketed by cream cheese frosting and a light raspberry mousse. Then smoothered in a soft chocolate ganache. Add in a few fresh raspberries and the stream of flavors is complete. The kind of cake that makes you mmmmmm.  But.. I'm kinda a perfectionist. And I have to say.. there were a few issues with this cake. The weight of the cake is a little heavy for the mousse.. so the mousse had a difficult time staying put in the layers. Also … [Read more...]

Scotch Chocolate Cake

I love love luuuuurve this cake. It's kind of like a texas sheet cake, but with a dash of cinnamon and spice....heavenly. It's not too rich, but not bland in the least. It's just kind of like Mary Poppins...practically perfect in every way. I don't think I have ever made this cake and come home with left overs. Which, while is a huge compliment to the cake itself, it's kind of depressing for one, who might need a midnight snack-a-roo or two, right?! On several occasions guests will just "take a small piece," cause ya … [Read more...]
