Summer is the best! We love all the fresh veggies. My mom is the queen of gardening in our family. Living far away I cannot tell you how much I miss her garden tomatoes and cucumbers. Her massive zucchini and squash plants and giant pumpkins. She always has so many veggies we start turning them in to cakes and breads. She blends them up and freezes them so we can have that freshness in moments notice. When ever we get the hankering for zucchini bread or THIS chocolate zucchini cake! If . . .
A few months back my mom 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! Only Three Ingredients! So we ran to the store, bought the supplies and some dippers - we went with Nilla Wafers, grapes, and strawberries and we were on our way. With only 3 ingredients, it was made up in no time! The greek yogurt . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .
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. We made these individual red velvet trifles. 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 . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .

This cake is the only cake recipe you will ever need. It is seriously that good. What is so great about it is that it is kinda a blank slate. Great rich, full flavor that will compliment any frosting. And because it is a simple 3 layer cake, you can decorate it however! Seriously your go-to homemade cake recipe right here. My advise is.... Follow the recipe exactly- even the weird mixing techniques and it will be a hit! Be sure to read through the recipe first. In the pictures below I frosted . . .
